Volkswagen Polo SE
The Volkswagen Polo SE is a lower end trim on this hugely likable little motor that offers exceptional value for money, plenty of equipment, a good on road experience and very friendly attitude. What you get is a good all rounder that really appeals to the likes of families or urban dwellers, and always wants to go the extra mile to perform. It’s safe, secure and reliable and you really do get a solid amount of car for your cash. Under the bonnet you’ll find engines that range from 1.2 to 1.4 litre petrols and 1.2 to 1.6 litre diesels.
A good looking car in all regards, the SE is curvy, sumptuous and actually quite sleek at the front end. The interior is seriously well designed, versatile and functional. There’s 280 litres of boot space, so everyday use isn’t an issue, and it’s well put together so can stand up to wear and tear. In terms of gear and gadgetry, this car has air conditioning, alloy wheels, body coloured bumbers, driver assists, electric windows, airbags, CD stereo, media connections, remote locking, service indicator, driver assists and cloth seats. It’s perky and full of life out on the road, and the sharp steering keeps things exciting, especially around town. Pay £9,000 used.
