I bought my Polo new in March of 2014. This vehicle was intended to be my work hack and general runabout, but over time it became a lot more of a love affair than a rough and tumble run-around sort of gig. It all started when one of my workmates bought a new VW Up!, and I thought to myself, “What a cracking little car.” I was up for a new car anyway as my VE Commodore was becoming a little long in the tooth. So I went to the local VW dealership and test drove a Polo 77TSI DSG, as I felt that an Up! was a touch too small.

If you’re in the market for a B-segment hatchback, what are you really looking for besides a reliable box on wheels that can ferry yourself and possibly an average-sized family around in about a 50 km radius with the occasional balik kampung or glutton’s jaunt further afield? If you’re looking for a pocket rocket, by all means the various GT, GTi, GTI or Sports versions of numerous models justify premium prices. But a 1.2 litre Polo at RM113,888? There isn’t even really the badge snobbery since, well, it’s still the … [Read more...] about Volkswagen Polo Malaysia Review
