The Volkswagen Polo is a familiar small car on the roads and it has been around since 1994. Major updates that were made in 2000, 2002 and 2009 have kept this car up to date. It is available as a saloon, a hatchback, an estate, and a ruggedised version called the Dune.
This car is above all else a Volkswagen and so you get what it sways on the tin. It is a very well built small car that will give you many, many miles of very reliable driving and whilst not breaking any records for performance it is still quite nippy and handles well.
There are a number of diesel and petrol engines to choose from depending on the year of manufacture and the later models have quite high levels of refinement. Although somewhat smaller than the legendary Volkswagen Golf, it is not cramped and there is an adequate boot space too.
If economy is important to you, then look for the Polo BlueMotion model. This has been restyled with improved aerodynamics and the engine has been modified to minimise CO2 emissions. The latest version is a three cylinder unit with stop start technology. It has a fuel economy of 81 mpg and is free of road tax.
