There’s nothing like a scenic drive to quench the Summer thirst for adventure. And if you’ve done a Jeremy Clarkson, taking the Black Mountain Pass beneath the high sun, chances are you’ve being cruising along in a Volkswagen Polo – July’s fastest selling car in Wales.

Good things come in small packages is what they say, and this is very much the case for the VW Polo. With no indication of whether drivers opted for the standard TSI trim, or the sportier GTI variant, we’d like to think its the former that’s captivated the interest of the Welsh people this month.

Last year, Volkswagen introduced its sixth-generation Polo – now synonymous with every first driver’s choice of vehicle both for its compatibility and price – and they spared no expense in delivering a powerful revised entry into the supermini segment.

But what automotive enthusiasts would really have sought out is the iconic three-letter badge displayed proudly on the front grille; a true nod to its 1975 ancestral heritage, when the GTI was first introduced via the legendary MK I.

With a range of premium vehicle technology prevalent in most modern affo-lux models on the market, the real deal breaker on this supermini of renown is a 2.0-litre turbocharged TSI petrol power plant, producing 204 BHP and 320 Nm of torque.

Mated to an ultra-responsive 7-speed DSG, the new Polo GTI takes just 6 and a half seconds to get to 62 mph and can hit a top speed of 149 mph – certainly nothing to sneeze at.

The Polo GTI is the first in this series that’s not offered as an EV – you’ll have to wait until 2025 for VW’s first entry-level Polo-sized electric. Until then, if you’re a dealer in Wales thinking about what to stock on your forecourt, you can’t really go wrong with the VW Polo.
