Thinking of buying a used Volkswagen Polo?

Why buy the Volkswagen Polo?

Key to the Volkswagen Polo’s appeal is its ‘big car’ feel. Although it’s a small hatchback (or supermini), the Polo gives you the kind of quiet, comfortable driving experience more often associated with bigger cars such as the Volkswagen Golf. It’s a very reassuring feeling, especially on motorways. The Polo also has a high-quality, user-friendly interior. There are a lot of models to choose from, so there may be one that fits the bill for you.

Volkswagen Polo range and updates

The latest version of the Polo has been sold new since 2018, replacing one sold new from 2009 to 2018. The newest version is a bit bigger and more spacious and features VW’s latest tech. It’s available only as a five-door hatchback, whereas the older model has either three or five doors.

Both versions are available with petrol and diesel engines. In both cases, the lower-powered engines are best suited to town driving. The more powerful options are better for long journeys or if you regularly carry a carload of passengers. The high-performance GTi hot hatchback is quick. Manual and automatic gearboxes are available.

You can choose from many trim/equipment packages – the most popular are the SE, SEL and Match. R Line models have a sportier look with a bodykit and big wheels, while Beats models are named after the maker of their powerful stereos.  

Volkswagen Polo tech and features

Several Polo trims are available, separated by relatively small increases in equipment levels. Every model of the older Polo has DAB radio, a CD player and front electric windows. The latest Polo also has a touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone connectivity and air con. Higher-spec models gain parking sensors and sat nav. 

Volkswagen Polo running costs and value

The older version of the Polo gives excellent fuel economy. Most models can give at least 50mpg, according to official figures, and the most efficient diesels can give more than 80mpg. Figures for the latest version are equally impressive. The 1.0-litre ‘TSI’ petrol engines can give around 50mpg and the (much) more powerful 2.0-litre GTi can give 41mpg. The ‘TDI’ diesel can give up to 76mpg.

The 1.0-litre engine falls into insurance group 1 keeping your car insurance premiums affordable.

Volkswagen Polo vs rivals

There are many other superminis like the Polo, including the Ford Fiesta, Renault Clio and Vauxhall Corsa. The Polo costs a bit more and isn’t the sharpest to drive, but its high-quality interior, desirable brand and ‘big car’ feel hold huge appeal. The latest version is notably spacious, as well.
