The recall covers the current Polo generation as well as the Ibiza (2017 and 2018 models) and Arona (2018 model year). The issue lies with the seatbelt for the left-rear passenger, which could come unfastened when five people are seated in the car.

Recall work will see a redesigned belt lock fixture fitted and will start in the next few weeks. All work will be carried out free of charge.

Both carmakers stressed that safety is a top priority for them.
