VW Polo is Wheels Mag 'Car of the Year' - again

Polo is 'Car of the Year' - again

Wheels Magazine's 'Car of the Year' award for a second year running, the Australian Associated Press reports.

The VW Polo has followed the VW Golf to small-car fame, winning over judges with its "beautiful" engineering.

Wheels Magazine editor, Bill Thomas, said Nissan's Micra and the Renault Megane, both small cars, joined the Polo as top three finalists for the award.

Thomas said it was not surprising to see small cars taking the limelight.

"It's a fair indication of the way trends are going in car buying in Australia. Small car sales have gone up by 55 per cent.

"It means that a third of cars in Australia now are small cars," he said.

The Polo sells for about A$20,000 (RM60,000).

Thomas said the finalist nod was a first for the Nissan Micra, impressing judges with a complete overhaul.

"The Nissan Micra is probably the best car ever sold for under A$13,000 (RM39,000)  in Australia. The features and extras make it excellent value,"

Among the more expensive small cars, the Renault Megane hot-hatch sells for about A$42,000 (RM126,000).
