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

Sporty R-line trim adds bigger alloy wheels and a more aggressive bodykit. Unless you really love the looks, save yourself some money.

Engine: 1.0 TSI 95

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.
