Volkswagen Polo

The 2018 Volkswagen Polo is a 5 door hatchback, for the first time there is no 3 door Polo being produced, If you like cut of the VW Golf but wanted something a little smaller and easier to park, the new Polo is the car for you.

There is so much to like about the new Polo, the build quality in particular stands out as does the size, the boot at 351 litres makes it a match for the Ford Focus let alone the Ford Fiesta. The only complaint that can be levied at the Polo is that its sister car, the Seat Ibiza has a little more kerbside va va voom and to Mobility customers a wider choice of trim lines and engines.


To Mobility Customers three trim lines are available; ‘S’, ‘SE’ and ‘beats’, The entry level car is well equipped with an 8 inch touchscreen, DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning, automatic headlights, and Front assist with pedestrian monitoring and automatic Post-Collision Braking System. The SE, which is the pick, adds 15 inch alloy wheels, electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors, leather trimmed multifunction steering wheel and Carplay/Android Auto. The funked up ‘beats’ has a 300 watt sound system, front fog lights, sports seats, 16 inch Alloy wheels, rear tinted glass and ‘Herbie’ style stripes that run the length of the car. Sadly certain items that should be included are now on the extras list, cruise control £285, parking sensors £315 and climate control £415.


The engine range is limited for Mobility customers this quarter, the only engine avaialble is a 1.0 litre three-cylinder petrol with either 64bhp or 94bhp, we would recommend the turbocharged 94bhp version over the limp non turbo offering as the extra grunt will help you achieve a better miles per gallon as you will not have to work the engine so hard, the official economy for the 94bhp car is 64.2 mpg. The same engine can hit 62 miles per hour in very respectable 10.8 seconds as a five speed manual or seven speed DSG automatic, which is super smooth but prices start at an un-competitive £799 Advance Payment, the Seat Ibiza is on offer at Nil Advance payment as an Automatic car this quarter.
