ALMOST ALL OF THE HATCHBACK MODELS, OF WHICH THE SHARE OF SALES FIGURES INCREASE WITH EVERY PASSING DAY IN TURKEY’S MARKET, ARE RENEWED OR JOINED THE COMPETITION AFTER MODIFICATION WITH THEIR NEW FEATURES. A POWERFUL COMPETITION HAS BEEN GOING ON AMONG VW POLO, FORD FIESTA, RENAULT CLIO AND HYUNDAI I20, THE STRONG PLAYERS IN THE CLASS.
Despite being a sedan car paradise, the sales figures of small class automobiles are rising rapidly in our country’s market. The increase in the number of working women and the downsizing of the families trigger the increase in this class. In addition, features such as economic motors, practicality in crowded city traffic make these cars more attractive. Although they are called as small cars or B hatchback, the cars in this class are being renewed and their size is growing compared to the old versions.
6. GENERATION TOOK THE ROADS
Polo, one of the most successful models of the Volkswagen brand, first started the production in 1975 and reached more than 16 million sales worldwide, carries its ambition in its class to its sixth generation.

Thanks to the new platform, the vehicle is striking with a longer, wider body and extended wheelbase.
