Which engine in a 2018 VW Polo?

Can you please explain the engine choice in the new 2018 Volkswagen Polo? Wondering are the naturally aspirated petrol options 65hp and 75hp only suitable for city driving? I understand the TSI petrol 95hp are only available in automatic, is this true? I do mostly city and country driving with the occasional motorway trip. At the moment I drive a 1.4 diesel 75hp Peugeot 207 and want to go for petrol as my yearly mileage is only 6,000 kilometres. Which petrol engine do you think would be the best for me?

Hi Catherine,

Yes, so far the 95hp TSI engine is only available with the DSG automatic gearbox, but I suspect that will change as the range expands and develops next year. As for the non-turbo engines, the 65hp is pretty weedy, but the 75hp is perfectly fine. Not the quickest automobile around, but entirely serviceable on the open road. If you still don’t fancy that, how about a new SEAT Ibiza instead? It’s mechanically the same automobile, really well-made and good to drive, and in SE or FR trim, you can have the 95hp turbo engine with a manual gearbox.
