Review

The Polo is a huge seller and it isn't hard to see why. It's a great all-rounder – smart and roomy inside, comfortable to sit in and good to drive. And while it’s pricier to buy outright than some of its rivals, that’s largely offset by competitive monthly finance rates and strong resale values. However, hybrid rivals offer better fuel economy and you need to pay extra for some of the modern safety kit rivals come with as standard.

get the best price

Match is our favourite trim because it's reasonably priced and comes with a decent amount of standard kit. That includes privacy glass, 15in alloy wheels, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, front and rear parking sensors, lumbar adjustment on the front seats, and an 8.0in infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

It might only have three cylinders and 94bhp, but this engine has the best combination of performance, fuel economy and CO2 emissions. It feels easily strong enough in town and holds its own on the motorway, too.
