As one of the fore-runners in auto technology and advancement, the VW Polo is now the first car in it's class to offer 6-speed automatic transmission. Furthermore, a 1.6 litre engine is now also in the choice offering. These features and comforts are usually reserved for much larger and more expensive cars, so to have these luxuries in such a small car is truly rare.
