Understandably, the B-segment is right now with a long of great cars to choose For the same kind of money spend on a new 2014 Volkswagen 1.6, you can get all kinds of Japanese and sedans and hatches some affordable, other more

But this is exactly the kind of Volkswagen needs to break in to if it to meet two very big targets it has set for the first being to topple as the world’s no.1 carmaker, and the to reach a target of 20,000 sold in Malaysia this

Hence you have the 2014 Polo 1.6, which like its Polo Sedan before it, is here to help the Group Malaysia achieve ambitious targets.

Buyer’s Should you buy one?

Think and words like faulty DSG and TSI engines are likely come to But none of this matters to the car in for two reasons. One, the Polo 1.6 have a DSG or a TSI engine. Two, Malaysia has even put its staff on shifts to help customers existing problems they have been completely out in newer models.

With hesitations we finally have a car to look at. And all there for RM87,888 is very so good, it’s nearly a purchase. Very nearly. why:

Driving a 2014 Polo 1.6: Responsive, sized, great fun

Driving a or something bigger almost other day makes it easy for like me to forget the charms of a B-segment hatch; something the 1.6 is in every way.

And as written in our Quick Review of the Polo this car is great fun to drive drive through the city, everywhere. The smaller dimensions, surrounding visibility and well-equipped make light work of commutes, and anything else you expect of it.

On the road, the car’s steering good in your hands, feedback channelled through for quick directional changes a body that responds as sharply not that we encourage the spirited driving we set the Polo to. And when you’re just out to get to the typically-imperfect Malaysian roads do to unsettle the car, or you. The levels of ride comfort in the are courtesy of the car’s firm yet seats, and cleverly-tuned suspension as we discovered in our Quick Review. is on the road, or in a rally!

Where is a requirement, the 1.6-litre MPI engine is and has just about enough for you to not ask for more, while the shifts its six-speed automatic gets the gears without much Keeping the revs low for economical reveals a very quiet with exterior and engine very negligible. It’s when you start to rev the normally-aspirated hard that some of the gets in.

Living with a 2014 Polo 1.6: The smart Yes. Safe? 4/5.

no DSG or TSI technologies on board, there’s no to worry if either would be a even if Volkswagen say that’s all And again, there’s great to reiterate here just how this car is to live with, as as it is to drive, for all its size and visibility.

With regards to spaciousness, passengers have very to complain about with leg and headroom for the average adult. with a six-foot tall like me driving, rear may find it a bit difficult to endure a trip out of town.

One particular I personally have with hatches, is with their space. Just the other I made a horribly wrong to go shopping for a 32-litre oven in my Suzuki Swift, with passengers and myself in one car. at the pictures above, the Polo have fared a whole lot at the job.

EQUIPMENT: Then you have its offerings, which are now courtesy of an audio system that with connectivity for your USB, iPod and Aux and SD cards. The of the system is how easy it is to use: it takes less than a for a complete ‘noob’ like to pair up my mobile phone, and get all my played and calls answered

SAFETY: The list starts ABS, Brake Assist, two airbags, Park Assist and a clever Intelligent Crash System (ICRS) that the doors automatically in the event of a collision. But while that’s all and good, the Polo 1.6 doesn’t with an Electronic Stability (ESP); something that it to drop some points for and potentially leaves you with a greater risk of completely control of the short wheelbase to spin out) Polo

Competing against a 2014 Polo 1.6:

With many price competitors for the 1.6, we thought best to to just the hatches, and let them it out. First up

2014 PEUGEOT 208 : Being a there is so shortage of fun toys for you to with, and slightly more to drive. For example, the seven-inch HD screen, an Arkamys 3D sound (we like) and a very flashy The Pug does another one better by a full suite of safety which includes an ESP.

KIA RIO : Another full-equipped car for going the Rio does seem like the outdated model amongst the lot early 2013). But, it is as to drive as they come, has an ESP to potentially save your and lots of equipment to make life better.

Verdict: what we think

The Polo 1.6 is a bit of kit. We know it to drive well, and offer very affordability, practicality and convenience for a price not to mention its German But is it the smartest choice of car you can make for

Personally, if I were ready to RM90,000 or so, there’s a very high-spec Honda City V that I’d have to myself out of bigger boot, six more interior spaciousness.

But what if it’s a the charms of engineering that you’re Simple, functional, gets on the job, affordable. You need no further than the Polo. And it may be locally assembled, apart the differences in spec between and the more expensive CBU unit, you be able to spot any sub-German-standard quality here.
