Our recommendations

Which used Volkswagen Polo hatchback should I buy?

Our choice is the mid-trim S model with the 65bhp 1.2 engine, but don't bother with the 55bhp 1.2 because that's a bit slow. The more powerful model is most commonly teamed with the entry E trim, which has only central locking and a CD player.

Instead, track down a car with S trim, which adds air-con, electric windows and door mirrors. Or, for more go, move up to the 1.4 petrols (standard and FSI, bearing in mind the latter engine's appetite for super-unleaded).
