Volkswagen Polo DSG automatic

With its excellent refinement and classy cabin, the VW Polo is the small car that thinks big.

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.
