With the slogan "People's cars", Volkswagen can truly say that their cars really are for everyone.

One of the best examples of a people's car is without a doubt the very popular VW Polo. Month after month the Polo tops the charts for best-selling vehicle in its segment.

When driving one, it becomes clear why it is so popular.

This Polo is in excellent Auto Pedigree condition. From the well looked after interior and cloth seats through to the paintwork, our Polo was in an acceptable condition.

Though the Polo Classic is a small family sedan, there is more than enough room for four adults .

The interior of the car is modern and this is also the case with the controls. Everything is within easy reach of the driver and easy to operate.

The contemporary design of the Polo, combined with its practicality, makes this vehicle suitable for the needs of a very diverse market.

There is not much explaining to do when it comes to the reliability of the Polo. This car has written its own handbook through the years and is well known among South Africans for its unbeatable performance.

Our used car has done a mere 42000km. Taking into account that this is a Volkswagen power plant, this makes it virtually as good as new.

Driving the Polo is easy and the small turning circle makes city driving a breeze.

Fuel economy is one of the best attributes of the Polo. One can easily get 12km to 13km a litre without driving at extra slow speeds.

The four-cylinder 1,6-litre power plant uses a five-speed manual gearbox to deliver power to the front wheels. Power figures stand at 77kW and 153Nm. This is more than enough to travel at 120kph on the freeways.

It comes with aircon, front loading CD player, power steering and electric windows in front.
