The Volkswagen Polo, two-time winner of the World Rally Championship (WRC), is the perfect vehicle for young professionals and car lovers.

Also, ISOFIX Ready Seats are available for the rear seats.
The clear, authentic Volkswagen Design gives the Polo Hatchback a trendy and sporty look. On the exterior, it is stocked with halogen headlamps with range adjustment, front and rear fog lamps, chrome-accent front grille, and 15-inch “Riverside” alloy wheels.
