Readers, we have a problem. The new Volkswagen Polo GTI has knocked the stuffing out of our Bang For Your Bucks award.

It hasn’t just won handsomely … it has belted it out of the park! Want proof? We pumped its Bang and Buck scores into our formula for the last five years and it won, every time.

When we set up our formula, you were never supposed to be able to buy this much performance for just $27,990.

To read all about the Volkswagen Polo GTI’s single-handed dismantling of this year’s Bang For Your Bucks award, pick up a copy of our August issue, on-sale now for $8.95.
