Volkswagen Polo SEL
The Volkswagen Polo SEL is positioned towards the higher end of trims and is a hugely popular choice for those people who want something small but very well formed. It’s quite premium and sporty in setup and really does come with a good kit list, as well as a hugely positive driving experience. Nothing but reliable and safe, what you get is a good all rounder that is particularly good for small families and commuters. Under the hood are a range of engines that span 1.2 to 1.4 litre petrols, as well as 1.6 litre diesels.
The Volkswagen Polo SEL is a very good looking car that’s sleek and seriously stylish from all angles, especially the front end. The cabin is comfortable, roomy, well finished and nothing but functional and robustly put together. Equipment wise, you’ll spot the likes of air conditioning, alloy wheels, cloth seats, CD stereo, media connections, driver assists, body coloured bumpers, remote locking, a spare wheel and even a telephone. Positive and perky out on the tarmac, it’s responsive in terms of steering and always wants to perform. With a nice sporty setup and attitude, it’s a real bargain for £11,000 used.
