How much does it cost to run a Volkswagen Polo hatchback?
Thanks to small engines, the Polo shouldn’t cost you much to run. The least powerful 64bhp 1.0 petrol has an average of 58.9mpg, while the 74bhp version of that engine is a little better at 60.1mpg.
The turbocharged 1.0 units are better still, with the 94bhp variant getting 62.8mpg (the 114bhp version manages 60.1mpg). At the other end of the scale is the 47.9mpg of the 197bhp 2.0 unit found in the GTI. If you’re interested in the diesel, the 1.6 TDI has an economy figure of 76.3mpg.
All Polos will be charged under the current flat-rate fee of £140 for a year's road tax.
Servicing costs, meanwhile, tend to be slightly lower than what you’ll pay for a Ford Fiesta or Vauxhall Corsa, and insurance groups for all models aside from the GTI are relatively low, thanks to standard automatic emergency braking.
