Volkswagen Polo 1.0 SE – cheapest cars to insure

The new VW Polo is bigger than ever before, and brings a touch of class to the small car segment

Volkswagen Polo - best superminis

The new Volkswagen Polo weighs in at insurance group 1 in both S and SE trim, the latter being our trim of choice from the Polo range. Both spec levels are available with the 1.0-litre petrol MPI engine, however, the S can be spec’d in either 64 or 74bhp guise, while the SE is only available with the higher power output.  

Behind the wheel, motorists will enjoy a host of on-board tech, including the brilliant Active Info Display. The Active Info Display (which is an option) replaces traditional dials with an 11.7-inch screen, which can show speed, sat-nav and other vital driving information.

Volkswagen Polo review

The new Polo is based on the MQB platform, but it is longer, lower and importantly lighter than the previous model. The swelling of the proportions also means there is extra space in the boot and more legroom.

Finally, cars can be specified with ‘Sport Select’ which uses adjustable dampers to change the driving characteristics of the car when in the various modes.
