Volkswagen Polo Comfortline 2018 review: snapshot

The 85TSI has a more powerful engine and more kit. (Volkswagen Polo Launch Edition shown)
EXPERT RATING
8.1
The 85TSI Comfortline marks the second and highest rung on the Polo ladder (for now), wearing a $19,490 (six-speed manual) or $21,990 (seven-speed dual-clutch auto) price tag.

The 85TSI Comfortline marks the second and highest rung on the Polo ladder (for now), wearing a $19,490 price tag for the six-speed manual ($21,490 drive-away) or $21,990 for the seven-speed dual-clutch auto ($23,990 drive-away).

It builds on the equipment of the entry-level Trendline, adding 15-inch alloys, auto headlights, rain-sensing wipers, chrome highlights and better quality cloth seat trim in the cabin.

It squeezes more power out of the little 1.0-litre engine, too, with the three-cylinder unit now producing 85kW at 5000rpm and 200Nm at 2000rpm - enough for a sprint from 0-100km/h in 9.5 seconds.

Like the Trendline, it’s a happy picture of standard safety, with the five-star ANCAP rated Polo arriving with six airbags, a reversing camera, parking sensors and AEB with pedestrian detection. 

An optional 'Driver Assistance Package' ($1400) adds VW’s manoeuvre braking system to the Polo, which combines with the rear parking sensors to act as AEB in reverse when you’re parking, along with adaptive cruise, blind-spot monitoring, rear-traffic alert and Park Assist.
