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: R Line

R-line trim adds bigger alloy wheels and a sportier bodykit. Unless you love the looks, we’d stick with SE.

Engine: 1.0 TSI 115

This engine offers a bit more performance than the 1.0 TSI 95, picking up willingly from low revs and easily coping with motorway journeys. If you do go for this engine, you won't be disappointed, but the extra financial outlay it requires means we'd still recommend the 1.0 TSI 95, which still offers flexible performance. The 1.0 TSI 115 is only available in more expensive trim levels, so you can't get it in our favourite SE trim.
