The new Volkswagen Polo has been so supersized you half expect to find Morgan Spurlock hiding in its (now much bigger) boot.

For one, this sixth-generation car is longer than the model it replaces. And it’s wider. And there’s more room for passengers and cargo than ever before.

Yep, the not-so-mini-Golf is bigger across the board. Except, that is, for under the bonnet, where a new and pint-sized 1.0-litre petrol engine is the order of the day.

But are they enough to push the bigger-than-ever Polo around?
