2019 Volkswagen Polo Hatchback Review – The Polo Hatchback, now in its 6th generation, has been transformed into a paradox on wheels. In creating this new model, VW has made the new car more refined and smart, while likewise doing a ton to keep up its interest to the adolescent. After all, according to the Alexander Forbes Insurance Company, 70% of the adolescent (18-25 years old) drive hatchback vehicles, with 30% of those being ones from the Wolfsburg brand. This measurement alone does a ton to legitimize figures that recommend that in 2019 alone, Volkswagen South Africa figured out how to offer 20 388 fifth generation Polos to South Africans while exporting 58 297 from their Uitenhage plant. The Polo Hatchback is a predictable performer with regards to the month to month offers of passenger vehicles, with it being found in the best 3 with each passing month. For instance, in May 2019, it discovered 1 376 owners while the Polo Hatchback surpassed it by offering 1 955 units. Ideally, you now understand how prevailing the Polo Hatchback is compared to its B-portion hatchback rivals, for example, the Ford Fiesta (which sold 390 cars a month ago). All things considered, the thing to ask now is the thing that has VW done to ensure that the new Polo Hatchback remains to finish everything while as yet remaining a Volkswagen – a car of the general population!
The new Polo Hatchback is larger and more innovatively modern than its predecessor. Its boot is 25% bigger than before, for instance, while VW’s discretionary ‘Dynamic Info Display’ – an advanced dashboard show to you and me – is a first for the supermini class and bound to charm buyers. Versatile cruise control, a self-parking framework and a panoramic sunroof are among the choices, bringing frameworks and features from the class above. While still recognizable as a Polo Hatchback and hardly a radical tasteful departure, the new car appears to be unmistakably unique from its predecessor, bringing to mind the larger, plusher Golf with its intricate front light outline and geometric rear.
2019 Volkswagen Polo Hatchback Engine
The Polo Hatchback is offered with a large range of engines. We propose avoiding the 64 and 74bhp 1.0-liter MPI petrols if possible – not on the grounds that they’re terrible at all, however in light of the fact that VW’s 94bhp 1.0-liter turbocharged TSI petrol is so fiery and characterful. A 113bhp version of this engine and a 148bhp 1.5-liter turbocharged petrol are additionally offered, while the forthcoming Polo Hatchback gets a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol. Those after a diesel are catered for by 79 or 94bhp engines, while a DSG double grip programmed gearbox is offered as a choice on the vast majority of the range. There is no three-door bodystyle for the new 2019 Volkswagen Polo Hatchback Review, VW choosing rather to just offer the more practical five-door – which makes accessing the rear seats easier.
UK trim levels are yet to be confirmed, yet are probably going to mirror the previous line-up of S, SE, SEL, Beats and R-Line, with the elite Polo Hatchback at the highest point of the range now sporting 200hp. Similarly, the full UK engine line-up is still to be reported – however we do realize that 1.0-liter TSI turbo petrol engines will be by a long shot the greatest sellers. They’re accessible in the Polo Hatchback with 95hp and 115hp, and a decision of manual or programmed transmission. We’ve so far driven both 1.0-liter TSI models, in addition to a 1.6-liter diesel also.
2019 Volkswagen Polo Hatchback Interior
The Polo Hatchback story starts with more space. Parcels more space. Overall the new Volkswagen Suggestion is 81mm longer than the current model, riding on a 92mm longer wheelbase with increased passenger space in every direction and a boot that bounces from 280 liters to a far more practical 351 liters. Larger passenger space implies the Polo Hatchback would now be able to more effectively accommodate grown-ups in the rear. Front headroom has been increased by 15mm and rear headroom moves by 21mm with a lot of foot and legroom facilitating the burden of being relegated to the rear.
The 2019 Polo Hatchback seems to be a winner by and by on the grounds that VW has not faltered in giving their B-fragment warrior the most recent and best weapons to demolish its rivals. A moment generation Active Info Display is passed down from Golf, Passat and Tiguan models and straight into the Polo Hatchback, improved to be clearer and more user friendly. The 2019 Volkswagen Polo Hatchback Review likewise inherits a 6.5-inch infotainment show, upgradeable to 8.0-inch in more costly models. The interior altogether is substantially tidier and incorporates a vibe of value and improved plan with the dashboard, steering and switchgear receiving very deft touches. The new interior outline is accessible in 13 different dashpad colors and 11 situate cover plans. Expect wireless charging and keyless entry to be on the discretionary extras list as well. Goodness and look, a mechanical handbrake! (Handbrake turns internally)
2019 Volkswagen Polo Hatchback Exterior
The exterior styling, particularly the front bumper plan on standard models, is a gesture to VW’s refreshed outline dialect found in models, for example, the Golf 7.5. The option of the R-Line styling bundle adds some genuinely necessary aggression to the rather unpolarised styling of the standard car by introducing a sporty front bumper with haze lights and a spoiler lip, side ledge expansions and another compound wheel plan. The rear, albeit completely redesigned, still reminds me of the active car. It resembles when relatives say you resemble a certain relative that passed on quite a while prior. In spite of the fact that it is unfair to call the non-R-Line Polo Hatchback grotesque, I don’t see it winning any magnificence challenges at any point in the near future. In any case, you can’t really reprimand VW. Unobtrusive, mature and computed approaches to styling appears to offer nowadays. That is to say, this car should be a bookkeeper’s wet dream, right? Possibly a certain blend between the 14 different exterior colors and 12 wheel plans will really bring the car to life.
The five-speed transmission fitted to the 70kW engine has a precise yet marginally thick activity. That is a typical characteristic of German cars, whereas the French, Japanese and Korean little car shifts are lighter. You may locate the strong German approach more reassuring, or a tad of a drag. Anyway, the Polo Hatchback goes ahead and off the throttle easily so it’s generally simple to make a spotless shift without every one of your passengers’ heads gesturing. In Germany VW offers three suspension choices. The first is the Comfort setup, which does to be sure provide magnificent ride comfort once you have past around 30km/h. Be that as it may, it gives the car a chance to drift somewhat over enormous undulations and through vigorous S twists. The Sports choice lowers the car by 15mm and has tauter springs and better damping and roll control. On the off chance that your appreciate driving on twisty country roads this may be the best decision. At last that sports chassis can be joined with two-mode switchable dampers, yet that is just worthwhile in case you’re prepared to press the switch every time you get to an alluring arrangement of twists – it’s not a versatile framework.
2019 Volkswagen Polo Hatchback Specs
VW has increased the style bet with the 2019 Volkswagen Polo Hatchback Review in an effort to stamp out the car’s reputation for being, admirably, somewhat boring.

There’s additionally decals on offer, with contrast stripes and so forth if that takes your favor. Predictable as it sounds, we’d stick to one of the safer shades – white looks great – on the off chance that you need to protect your residuals. The Polo Hatchback itself bids to an immense array of motorists, however bright orange paint and cap stripes – even the classy, slimline stripes that VW offers – requests to a rather more specialty gathering of people.

A best end Beats model will likewise be offered, finished with a Beats sound framework and a spec tailored to a younger driver.

In spite of the fact that the current Volkswagen Golf offers more space, more power, and more adaptability, the most up to date Polo Hatchback takes such a major jump forward (once more) that a few buyers may address on the off chance that they have to spend the extra to venture into a Golf. With pricing and particulars for Australia still to be revealed it’s hard to state exactly how focused the new Polo Hatchback will be, however the early signs are promising. Volkswagen has delivered the comfort, innovation, and space of cars from the class above and that is a major ordeal. On the other hand, that is the thing that the Polo Hatchback has constantly done.

2019 Volkswagen Polo Hatchback Pricing
The Polo Hatchback should be an appreciably modest car to run by any standard. Its engines are generally very productive, albeit remarkably the Ford Fiesta 100ps Ecoboost betters the VW Polo Hatchback 1.0 95 on emissions and economy, so will be cheaper on organization car impose and marginally on fuel, too. Indeed, even the 1.5-liter petrol should be productive as it can turn off two of its four cylinders when it needn’t bother with them. There’s dependably the diesel Polo Hatchback on the off chance that you need an economy champion, yet the higher purchase price and what’s probably going to be steeper depreciation than that suffered by the popular mid-range petrol models may well balance the investment funds you make on fuel.
