Owner reviews Volkswagen Polo 2020-2021

The suspension, of course, is stiff, but here the physics: either good handling and rigidity, or soft, but roll in handling. In my opinion, the Polo is a worthy compromise. The build quality is seemingly norms, life will show. In the cabin, everything turns and works as it should, the sensor responds clearly to multimedia, does not hang. Digital tidy – test.

Dynamics – you will not get bored, you wanted to overtake – overtook, you do not need to select 3-5 km of a straight path to perform a miracle. The turbo does its job, a decent moment already from 1,600 rpm. Consumption corresponds to the declared by the factory, and the rest depends on the force of pressing the gas pedal. Almost 1,000 km on the tank in a city cycle, the track is 30.70% – this is an offset. Shumka at a height, not great, but I remind you – it’s an economy.

Review of Volkswagen Polo 1.4 (125 HP) DSG 2020

The suspension is harsh, the priest feels bumps. I thought that driving on a gravel road would be impossible, but the trip showed the opposite. Soundproofing up to 90 km / h is normal, and the engine becomes audible if you press the gas pedal to the floor.

The engine pulls from the bottom, the high torque shelf allows it to spin up, which is useful on long climbs. I tried to accelerate to the maximum speed for a short time, the VW Polo holds the road confidently, an exception: in windy weather the car staggers, as if it has a sail on the roof. The headlights are excellent. The steering wheel is clear and smooth, it is pleasant to drive.

Review of the new Volkswagen Polo 1.6 (90 HP) manual transmission 2020

I live in Siberia and all possible heating is important, seats, mirrors, washer nozzles and windshield and rear windows are heated here. Perfect light with led optics. Now I have arrived 2,500 km, everything in the car suits me, there are no complaints yet.

Pleases very low fuel consumption by my standards, 6 well, maybe a maximum of 7 liters in the city. I’m not a racer, and it’s stupid to try to drive a 1.6 on the machine. Staying confident in city traffic and driving along the highway 110-130 km / h is the best mode for Polo.

The interior is an ordinary fabric, a good multimedia system. The trunk in the body of the liftback is simply gorgeous, easy to load, a lot of space.

Review of Volkswagen Polo 1.6 (110 hp) on the automatic machine in 2020

There is more than enough space inside, despite my considerable dimensions (height 178, weight 98 kg). The seating position (despite the absence of a lumbar support) is quite normal and the back does not get tired. Drive 340+ km. this confirms.

The handling of the car does not raise any questions, no “swimming”, etc. was not noticed. Another plus is the body type, very convenient access to the huge trunk! Also, the optics should be attributed to the pluses – the light is excellent, the eyes never got tired when driving in the dark.

Oil consumption by the engine over 3,000 km was not noticed. Now about the drawbacks: the multimedia heats up the floating sound level (everything that can be turned off in the settings – turned off, did not help. Very soiled piano lacquer also does not belong to the pluses.

New body Volkswagen Polo 2021

The new body of the 2021 Volkswagen Polo is built on the “old” front-wheel drive platform PQ25, which is familiar from the Skoda Rapid. This “bogie” is characterized by the transverse arrangement of the power plant and the widespread use of high-strength grades of steel in the structure.

An independent suspension with MacPherson struts is installed on the front of the liftback, and a semi-independent system with a torsion beam is installed at the rear. Plus, anti-roll bars are used on both axles of the car.

The front of the model is equipped with ventilated disc brakes, while the rear on the most affordable versions are drum mechanisms, while more expensive cars are put on the usual “pancakes”. Liftback Volkswagen Polo Mk6 has the following overall dimensions, mm

Trunk VW Polo 2021

  • Length – 4 469
  • Width – 1 706
  • Height – 1 471
  • Wheelbase – 2 591
  • Ground clearance (clearance) – 163

The volume of the trunk of the five-door is 530 liters, and the manufacturer provides for the possibility of folding the back sofa, which makes it possible to increase the capacity of the cargo compartment to 1,460 liters. All liftback versions have a 55-liter fuel tank. Depending on the equipment, the curb weight of the vehicle varies from 1,185 to 1,286 kg.

  • The base of the new Volkswagen Polo 2021 is a 1.6-liter naturally aspirated engine with 90 hp. (155 Nm) and five-speed mechanics. With these units, the car is able to accelerate from zero to hundreds in 11.4 seconds, reaching speeds of up to 184 km / h.
  • The more powerful version is equipped with an aspirated engine of the same volume, developing 110 forces (155 Nm). It can work with both the aforementioned mechanics and a six-speed automatic. On cars with manual transmission, acceleration from 0-100 km / h is possible in 10.7 seconds, and the maximum speed is 195 km / h. Indicators of cars with automatic transmission are 11.8 seconds and 190 km / h, respectively.
  • And VW Polo can be ordered with a 1.4-liter “turbo four” TSI, which works in tandem with a seven-band robot, developing 125 “horses” and 200 Nm of torque. From 0-100 km / h, the top modification accelerates in 9.2 seconds, and its speed limit is 204 kilometers per hour.

Volkswagen Polo Salon 2021

Volkswagen Polo 2021 in a new body with atmospheric engines does not differ much in dynamics: the speed of such cars is slow and accompanied by a loud roar of the engine. In this regard, the turbo version is perceived almost as a sports car – there are no problems with it even when overtaking on the track.

The top motor works with the DSG7 robot, which until recently sinned with unpleasant jerking in the middle speed range. Over the past year, the Germans have corrected this shortcoming, so now there are no such complaints about the transmission.

As for the chassis, the smoothness of the new Volkswagen Polo 2021 model year has become a little better, but the German will not allow forgetting about the road irregularities. The energy intensity of the suspension still leaves much to be desired, and the passage of a speed bump at a speed of more than 30-40 km / h is fraught with a serious blow “in the gut”.

Compared to its predecessor, the front seats have become more comfortable and have gained some lateral support, but their frame is unified with the Rapid, which means there is a failure in the lumbar region. As for the back row, due to the wheelbase increased by 5 centimeters, it has become more spacious here, and the sofa itself has got a central armrest (in older trim levels).

There are no questions about the relative position of the main controls in the cabin, but the ergonomics of the new Polo are still not ideal. Take, for example, the multifunction steering wheel set for the model. There are too many buttons on the latter (as many as 20), and their placement logic raises certain questions.

Interesting Facts

The Russian version of the model, which appeared back in two thousand and eighth, has nothing to do with the European Polo, except for the general name. Initially, the car received a sedan body, but the current generation, which debuted in the early twentieth, changed the body to a liftback.

With the change of generation, the new VW Polo has become almost a copy of the Skoda Rapid model with a large trunk lid that opens along with the rear window. Among themselves, the cars differ in the design of the front end, lights and interior, while the technical “stuffing” they have in common.

Compared to its predecessor, the front of the car has acquired a larger radiator grille with chrome edging in the upper part, as well as adjacent headlights with integrated fog lights. The model also draws attention to the embossed hood, a new brand emblem and a redesigned bumper.

In the salon, the new Polo has been greatly transformed for the better: the interior has become more modern, solid and more expensive. Even in the simplest configuration, the equipment provides for a multimedia system with a 6.5 ″ touchscreen display and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In the top-end configuration, the screen has been increased to 8.25 inches.
