With its excellent refinement and classy cabin, the VW Polo is the small car that thinks big. This impression of expensive sophistication is heightened by the optional seven-speed twin-clutch DSG gearbox.

Delivering crisp and responsive shifts in automatic mode, the transmission helps give the Polo effortless performance, particularly when it’s mated to the punchy 1.2-litre TSI petrol engine. Drivers looking for a little more involvement can shift ratios manually using either the lever or the optional steering wheel-mounted paddles.
