It’s no surprise that so many people buy the VW Polo. It leads the class in just about every category – superb interior quality, good space inside and the sort of ride you’d expect from an executive car. If we had to nitpick, it’s a tad on the pricey side.

Trim: SE

SE trim gets you alloys, electric rear windows and a leather-trimmed steering wheel, as well as Apple Carplay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring. It's our pick of the range.

Engine: 1.0 EVO 80

The cheapest engine in the Polo range. However, this engine doesn't benefit from turbocharging, so needs working hard to get the best from it – and even then acceleration is far more pedestrian than in the TSI versions. It's only worth considering if you mostly drive in town.
