Cleverer, cleaner and classier, this improved fifth generation Volkswagen Polo supermini remains a quality used car choice.
As ever, it's easy to find a perfect driving position thanks to a height-adjustable seat and a reach as well as a height-adjustable steering wheel. And, as expected, there remains a reassuring solidity to everything you touch - and plenty of soft touch plastic to remind you just how far small cars have come in recent years.
This is an excellent example of these impeccably built Compact Hatchbacks from VW and is powered by what is one of the best all round engines available today in this size car.
It looks absolutely stunning finished in Pure White with complimenting side decals and a contrasting Titan Black Rail Cloth Upholstery.
This "SE" model costs just £20 Per Year to tax and additional features include * Daytime Running Lights, * Front Side Airbags (Head & Thorax), * 15" Lyon Alloy Wheels, * Multifunction Computer, * Composition Media System with Radio, Glovebox Mounted CD, Colour Touch Screen, SD Card, Aux-in, USB & Multimedia Interface, * Driver Seat Height Adjust, * Multifunction Leather Steering Wheel with Leather Gear Knob/Handbrake Grip, * ESP with EDL & ASR, * Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.
Power comes courtesy of the fantastic 90 BHP, 1.2 Litre Turbo Petrol engine mated to the 5 Speed Manual Transmission which provides plenty of performance with an excellent 60.1 MPG (ECC) achievable.
At the end of the day, there's much to be said for an extra touch of quality and class. Seek those as your priorities and you'll find the improved MK5 version of this little supermini more than happy to oblige.
