First hitting the roads in the mid-1970s the Volkswagen Polo model line has been a popular sight in many countries around the globe.
Now in its sixth generation of design, it has shared its chassis with many other models across the various brands under the Volkswagen umbrella.
Over the years the Polo has been offered in a variety of layouts in different regions including hatchback, sedan and station wagon.
All models are front-wheel drive with the engine in the front - a popular layout for smaller cars that want to be as light as possible for fuel efficiency and handling reasons.
Sales still climb year on year to this day as the car fills its niche and continues to be improved with each iteration of its redesign.
The most modern version of the Volkswagen Polo was released in 2017 and is available with a sensible 1-litre engine all the way through to an exciting 2-litre turbocharged flavour.
Much like the rest of the Volkswagen hatchback range a GTI trim has been on offer since the boom of the hot-hatch in the late 1980s.
These variations of the car feature up-rated parts, larger engines and more aggressive styling to bring sports-car-like experiences to the masses with a sensible price tag.
