LOOKS: – Not flashy, but even less trashy (Points scored: 8/10)

Looking at the competition (Vios, City, and now Almera), you’ve got to admit that the Polo Sedan is better looking than the lot, hands down. Fair points to the competition for making good everyday family sedans, but overlooking the style department were a big no-no.

You don’t get any strangeness in the Polo Sedan. Where with its rivals, designers have made attempts to stand out with flashy grille designs and sparkly brake lights, Volkswagen seem to enforce the idea that if it’s not flashy, don’t make it trashy.

The front end is Volkswagen through and through, and is therefore good. The shoulder lines that run along the car are amongst the many simplest of touches, but work wonders overall.

The result of this is a handsome B-segment family sedan that quite simply works. No frills on the outside to mask emptiness on the inside. What you see is what you get, and what you get looks good this way. We like it, and think it’s clearly the best looking four-door small family sedan you can buy in the country today.

In my opinion, with that kind of price you could always opt for a used 3 -4 years old with premium bits built into it Volkswagen Jetta 1.4TSI if you don't mind buying a used car. A Volkswagen is still a Volkswagen and people will not look down upon you even if you drive a 10 year old Volkswagen.

Looks like a turd. The driver who drives this car will also look like a turd.
