Yup the polo is lovely, but at £18,500 + there's a big difference in price for the same car in a better outfit.

The Polo GTi is more desireable but if money is tight then the Fabia vRS gives you more bang for your buck but you will lose the image & resale value when come to sale time. For me I much prefer the Polo GTi but if I'm spending that much, I might as well get a Golf GTi. Oh well, get a 2/3+ year 2nd hand Polo GTi that run-in for a while.

There's a bit more to it that the badge on the front. The skoda is fantastic, but the quality of the finish in the polo is superior.

I am not sure shopping in Waitrose over Asda, buying an iPhone over an Android etc makes you a loser.

Get an Onkyo

Do these skodas still come with the heated rear screen for pushing them in the winter?

It's the new Audi A1 but this looks better.

that's a lot of flash, for not a lot of cash

If only I have the money.

I do miss the diesel version.

I cringe everytime I see these comments, hotukdeals is full of these boring repetitive comments all the time..."never heard of them...get a Sony" etc etc, perhaps was funny the first 100 or so times...

Anywho, early morning grumpy rant over if your buying a brand new car this seems a lot of car for the money, personally I think I'll get something a couple of years old with low miles. Looking at a z4 for the missis I think

Great deal for a good chunk of motor engineering. Hot from me.

I'd love to replace my old 2001 Fabia with this, but living in a city surrounded by knobheads who scratch and dent your car without a thought... it's pointless.

Fabia is a great car though.

The Skoda jokes are wearing thin, just like Wayne Rooney's hairline.....and no amount of padding out or updating etc will alter that.
Skoda were rubbish in the 70's/80's but that was then, this is a sweet deal for a desirable looking car.

No i don't drive one but i would if it was what i needed,......hot from me.

Badge snob loser? There's a reason why Primark clothes don't have their logo displayed!

It's a cracking deal but don't they still spin the BS in the spec;

Light in boot - whoo-hoo, than god for that
Parcel shelf - I should bloody think so
High level brake light - show me a car that hasn't?
Rear disc brakes - ditto
Rear fog lights - legal requirement?
Rear window wiper - it's a hatchback, haven't they all
Drivers seat belt warning light - Oh come on now

Why don't they add;

Seats - at least 4
Dry Paint
Rubber Tyres

I agree with most of your sentiment (particularly the 5 forward facing seats) but most superminis still have rear drums, as its cheaper and gives a better handbrake. Think it's only performance models like this that have disks.

Would rather spend the extra cash and get the VW/Audi version of this, just to avoid the embarrassment of driving a Skoda.

I want.

Heat added!

There should be no embarrassment in driving a Skoda. They're better cars than a lot of the other heaps of junk on the road!

Hot deal, but not a hot as the seat CupraR deal. Isn't this bigger and heavier than the polo as well?

Cheaper to buy a horse and cart. Fuel will be cheaper also.

She got it as a company car and neither of the other two were on the list, so made the decision a bit easier.

I agree - kinda like youtube comments like 'Will it blend'
stupid idiots!

So much badge worrying going on!!!!!!!
If you were that bothered you wouldn't drive a poor mans VW which is a skoda then....
But if you were that bothered why drive a VW.........it's just a poor mans Audi anyway!
You'd not buy the VW or the Skoda....you'd go for the best of the lot in the Audi A1 which has a much better buiuld quality etc etc.....at the end of the day all 3 are probably very good cars and the difference in finish (and yes i suppose badge) is what it comes down to and your willingness to pay £13k at one end of the market or £20k+ at the other! I'm guilty of not wanting to drive a Skoda, i'm happy to admit it lol
This is a good car at that price though, nice find OP!!!!

Took the plunge and bought one of these 6 months ago. Great car. They don't need the paddles for the semi-automatic gears though as the automatic gearbox is so good you don't need them!

Nothing has matched it's acceleration from a standing start so far.

Why would anyone buy this when you can have a brand new bmw M3 fully kitted out for about 40k more? ;-D

Great deal for an excellent car with an award winning engine.

I have one of these cars and all i can say is they are great fun

I picked mine up 2 months ago and covered just over 2k in miles, its economical on duals etc getting roughly 45 at 80mph. I live up a big hill so at present its averaging around 31mpg which is pretty good and means lorrys, slow moving pensioners are no longer a problem!

Only niggle i have is the seats will not drop in height only backwards and forwards so im quite concious of my head near the roof and im only 5'10.

It is worth the money, the inside is well build but is plastic and nothing has come loose yet. DSG flappy paddles are ok but dont really use them other than changing up to drop the revs. Sport mode is great, had a run with a friend who has a BMW 530d M Sport and up to a 100 the Skoda was less than a bonet length off .

Just thought id drop in my 2p's worth
