Volkswagen Polo SE 1.2 TSI first drive review

Volkswagen Polo SE 1.2 TSI first drive review

New convenience and safety gadgets, plus a great new TSI engine, help keep the Polo close to the top of the class

As the adverts proclaim, this is “the new Polo”. That seems a bit of a stretch when you consider that the latest revisions to Volkswagen’s supermini include neither alterations to the exterior sheet metal nor to the lights and plastic bumpers, which are the more usual candidates for facelift revisions.Instead, VW has concentrated on refreshing the engines and upgrading the gadgetry, and despite the lack of headlines has made a pretty good job of it.There are now four petrol engines – the 59bhp and 74bhp 1.0-litre petrol triples from the Up, plus two versions of the 1.2-litre TSI turbo petrol four, in 89bhp and 108bhp forms.
