They often say less is more. In the case of Volkswagen South Africa’s new offering they can say down is up, or should I say UP! That’s the name of the new little vehicle that has hit the South African market and it’s the most entry level passenger car they have in their stable. Is it new? Yes and no. Yes it’s new to the local market but no it’s not new to the rest of the world, although it’s design looks stylishly new. The UP! around the world has been a success, it’s won awards and been given good reviews by important people. The important question is though, how will it do in our market which can be quite fickle at times?
So there’s a new Volkswagen Polo out, if you look at the picture you will see that it looks totally different to the old car (insert sarcasm here). This is in fact not a new car, no matter how hard they try to punt it as one, revised Polo, yes but totally new car, no. Now that we have that out the way, let’s talk about what has changed here.
