shops. And like be­fore, the Polo does ex­actly that. What jus­ti­fies the ‘new’ tag here is a hand­ful of en­gines to keep the Polo com­pet­i­tive in the low CO2 and fuel con­sump­tion game. City types will warm to the petrol triples, while diesel units have the legs to make light work of a mo­tor­way slog. Value for money With an en­try price a whisker above five fig­ures, the Polo is sur­pris­ingly af­ford­able. Granted, you’ll be wise to spend a lit­tle more if you want a few ex­tra com­forts, but fac­tor in the car’s po­ten­tial to de­liver 60mpg econ­omy in 1.0-litre guise and it’s easy to see its ap­peal. Any­one down­siz­ing from a larger car won’t feel cheated when they step into the Polo.

Price: £13,065 En­gine: 1.0-litre petrol unit pro­duc­ing 59bhp and 70lb/ft of torque Trans­mis­sion: Five-speed man­ual driv­ing the front wheels Per­for­mance: Top speed 100mph, 0-62mph in 15.5 sec­onds Econ­omy: 60.1mpg com­bined Emis­sions: 106g/km of CO2
