The newest version of the VW Polo continued the success of the old model when it was launched in 2017, and it has also pushed the supermini into the top 10 cheapest cars to run in the UK, which not everyone would expect of the German hatchback.

This Polofeels more grown up that the car that went before, with excellent interior quality, technology, refinement and ride comfort. Some may argue that the Ford Fiesta is a better driving experience, but equally there are motorists who prefer the grown-up feel of the Polo.
