Volkswagen Polo

Volkswagen first introduced the Polo back in 1996 as a small, city-based hatch, meant to fill the hole left by the growing Golf.

Since then, it's gone through four generations, with more modern features and sharper pricing that starts off at $18,990 with the Polo 70 TSI TRENDLINE, the city-friendly, five-door hatchback is able to keep up with its rivals. With a range of small, turbocharged engines, the Polo offers stronger performance than the city cars of old as well. 

Volkswagen's famed Polo GTi completes the line-up at $32,490.
