Volkswagen Polo

The Volkswagen Polo has received a mid-life face-lift for 2014. All the changes make the Polo look even more like a smaller Golf and include upgrades to the exterior styling and the interior.

The fifth-generation Polo has been on sale since 2009 and you can now find plenty on the used market. Here's the best examples of the classy small hatchback that we've found in the What Car? Approved Used classifieds:

Volkswagen Polo 1.2 S 3dr

The 1.2 S 3dr is the entry-level model to the Polo range. The 59bhp petrol engine is not the most refined but it returns 51.4mpg. We've found this low-mileage 2010 version on sale for £5990. For that, you get a smart little hatchback with a quality interior that's covered just under 12,000 miles.

Volkswagen Polo 1.4 SE DSG 5dr

SE trim is our favourite in the range. You get air-conditioning, alloy wheels and electric rear windows. This 1.4-litre petrol model also comes with the optional DSG automatic gearbox, making the Polo even easier to drive around town. It's a 2010 car with 15,000 miles on the clock and it can be yours for £8490.

Volkswagen Polo 1.6 TDI SE 5dr

Another SE trim model but this time with the 1.6-litre diesel engine. It's got the same spec as the petrol variant but averages 67.3mpg and emits just 109g/km of CO2. This 2010 version has covered a reasonable 36,000 miles and is being marketed at £8490.

Volkswagen Polo 1.2 TSI SEL 5dr

Compared with the entry-level 1.2-litre petrol, the 1.2 TSI is refined and powerful. It produces 103bhp and gets to 60mph in less than 10 seconds. It's also surprisingly fuel efficient averaging 53.3mpg. SEL trim is the top-of-the-range spec and comes with air-conditioning, alloy wheels and an upgraded infotainment system. This 2011 car has done 27,500 miles and costs £9790.

Volkswagen Polo 1.2 TDI Bluemotion 3dr
