Volkswagen Polo 2023 interior
Compared to the previous version, the seats received lateral support, but the dip in the lumbar region and the lack of support adjustment did not disappear. In general, the interior design is reminiscent of Skoda. The visibility from the driver’s seat has not become worse, the rear view camera is also excellent.
Compared to the previous version, the restyled 2023 model received softer springs, which had a positive effect on the smoothness of the ride.
The engine shield received a new coating, which had a positive effect on sound insulation. The roof insulation has also been increased.
The engine starts by pressing a button. In the TOP versions, it became possible to start the car without contact.
The brakes also work great. All the changes that we see in the restyled model are positive, not counting the disappearance of automatic windows, which are now only available to the driver.
Among the shortcomings of the interior, it is worth noting the lack of cup holders, and there is no place for a smartphone either.
If we compare the exterior, the liftback’s appearance is superior to that of the sedan from the previous version; the driver’s seat has become more comfortable and the ride is softer.

Main problems of Volkswagen Polo 2023
The car doesn’t have many problems, but it does exist. The first problem is painting. Due to the thin layer of paint, scratches and chips quickly appear if handled carelessly. Many owners pay attention to problems with electrical components. This could be power steering, power windows, etc.
Although the interior of the car is neat, it cannot be called very comfortable. After driving a couple of thousand kilometers, the seats begin to squeak and the foam rubber begins to come out. In general, many drivers find the seats not very comfortable. Scratches are clearly visible on the plastic trim of the interior.
In frosty weather, the engine does not start well and the valve cover gaskets are quickly damaged. Otherwise the engine is quite reliable.
Problems often arise with headlights. The side lights are the first to fail.
Steering tips are usually enough for 10-15 thousand km. As we wrote above, although the suspension has become softer, it is still quite stiff compared to some other cars.
