What should I replace my old VW Polo with?

What do you think of the 2016 Volkswagen Polo Match? I'm looking to replace my 16 year old Polo.

The Polo of that generation isn't a bad car but isn't as spacious as some alternatives. The Match is pretty low specification, too. We'd recommend a Hyundai i20 of that age.
