Looking to buy a new Volkswagen Polo in Malaysia? Research Volkswagen Polo car prices, specs, safety, reviews & ratings at CarBase.my. You can also compare the Volkswagen Polo against its rivals in Malaysia.

As an entry point to Volkswagen ownership, the Polo does well enough. Compared to sub-RM100k B-segment rivals, as you should, the Polo is competitive in spec and decent to drive. Just don't put it side-by-side with the 1.2 TSI.

As an entry point to Volkswagen ownership, the Polo does well enough. Compared to sub-RM100k B-segment rivals, as you should, the Polo is competitive in spec and decent to drive. Just don't put it side-by-side with the 1.2 TSI.
For
  • Keen CKD pricing means Malaysia now has a starter VW hatchback.
  • Proven powertrain acquits itself well, and top marks for comfort and refinement.
  • Feels more substantial than Asian B-segment rivals on the move.
Against
  • Being nearly RM30k cheaper than the TSI means sacrifices have to be made in materials and features - if you've been in the CBU car before, you'll feel it.
  • Not as fun to drive as the ads claim.

1.6 MPI (2010)
Bought new, Owned for 4 Years
Fuel Economy: 10.0 km/litre (10.0 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 900 km/month
    good offer price. smooth drive and VW logo.
    car is bumpy, lacks power, shudders at standstill, opening and closing door does not feel solid. its like the doors are not closed properly. all the doors squeak on uneven surfaces. rear is tight. can only seat 2 adults comfortably. parts so not last long. at the 3rd year mark absorbers, lower arms, pcv valve,link rods need to be changed. lights not bright at night. cooling systems need to be flushed as rust is present.
To improve
needs projector lamps,auto headlights, vipers and folding side mirrors, keyless entry, and electronic seat adjustment. doors need to be more solid. and engine must be a 1.8 and above. suspension needs a lot of improvements. seat have to be better quality. its already sagging at the 3rd year. needs disc brakes at the rear and arm rest as well.and the sound system sucks big time. it has 4 terrible sounding 8 ohm speakers from Belgium. its should be 4 or 6 ohms only. tyres should be bigger. 185/60/15 should never ever be used in a car. and where is the ESP? peoples lives matter.

Please stay away from this car until all these are improved. the value of a 2012 cbu polo is only 30k in 2016. VERY VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!
No, I would not recommend this car
