Compared to its predecessor, the sixth Polo will be larger and have more interior space and luggage compartment volume. The loading capacity in the latter has risen from 280 to 351 liters. Nevertheless, the Polo’s exterior remains crisp and compact. When compared to the fourth-generation Golf, which was manufactured until 2003, it is clear that while the Polo has been adapted to accommodate people who are getting bigger and bigger, it also uses the reconfigured space ever more efficiently. With a length of 4,053 millimeters, the new Polo is somewhat shorter than the Golf IV, but easily overtakes the old Golf in terms of a longer wheelbase (an increase of 53 millimeters), space for the driver and passengers, and luggage space (an increase of 25 liters).
