Rating: 4/5 HOT GETS HOTTER

The previous Polo GTI missed the mark in many respects but VW have done its homework with this newcomer. Its 1,4-litre growls and howls and the seven-speed twin-clutch transmission slips speedily between the cogs (it’s a little lazier when unhurried). There’s plenty of grip, too.

It’s amazing how far this once-humble hatch has evolved.

It’s not inexpensive or overly pricy but it does deliver fast fun in bucket loads. We’re convinced.
