The latest Volkswagen Polo cars in stock
For a city runabout that also excels on the motorway, the refined Volkswagen Polo is one of the most popular superminis on the market. Known for its deceivingly spacious cabin, superb road handling and of course the renowned Volkswagen engineering, the Polo is definitely worth a look. Ideal as a first car or an economical second car, the punchy Polo not only looks great, it’s safe and reliable too. Available as a compact three-door or a more versatile five-door, the Polo will fit four adults comfortably. Head and legroom is surprisingly plentiful and the cabin feels spacious. The boot space is more than adequate for the shopping, luggage, pushchair or sports equipment and you can fold the rear seats to increase storage space for bigger loads. Affordable to buy and run, the Polo really does feel like a premium motor. With front and side airbags as standard, stability control and an impressive five star Euro NCAP crash test rating (2009) it’s a safe proposition. Inside, all models are fitted with electric front windows and a decent CD stereo. Upgrade to the S or the newer Match model for sporty alloy wheels, MP3 compatibility and electric rear windows. Or, opt for the top of the range Sport for cool sports styling and a semi-automatic gearbox. The 1.2 or 1.4-litre petrol engines are a great choice if you’re after a city runabout. The diesel range comprises of a capable 1.4 TDI, a 1.9 SDI or the smooth 1.9 TDI all of which perform well on the motorway. For a greener, more efficient option take a look at the Bluemotion model, which emits an astoundingly low 99g/km of CO2, meaning your road tax is free. Not only that, economy is excellent, returning 74mpg. Depending on the model you choose, insurance groups range from 3 – 10 so the Polo is definitely a good option for new drivers.
