The Polo has had a smart face-lift for 2016 with a more aerodynamic exterior, subtle but practical cabin changes and a new generation of efficient and clever engines.
Leading the way is the Polo diesel housing a 1.4 TDI Bluemotion engine with manual transmission. Bluemotion technology has been exclusively developed by VW and boasts numerous enhancements including a regenerative braking system and stop-start technology which automatically disengages the engine when idling. Aerodynamic shaping and advanced tyre design further improve performance to create a vehicle with outstandingly low running costs.
For the Polo 1.4 diesel, this translates to 88g per km in CO2 emissions for both the 75PS and 90PS versions, exempting the vehicle from road tax. The 1.4 engine also returns 59 mpg in average road conditions, making it exceptionally economical to run. Accordingly, sell-on values for the 1.4L TDI will be strong.
The entry S model is not available with a TDI engine and diesel prices therefore start at £11.8K for the 1.4L TDI SE with 75PS and 3 doors. 5-door models add around £650 to the list price and are available across the range. The 2016 SE trim includes lightning to 30-pin adaptor, air conditioning, central locking, alarm and alloy wheels.
The improved SE Design trim costs 15,750 for the 5-door and adds unique refinement, fog lights and tinted windows. For a modest additional premium, the 5-door SEL trim includes cabin enhancements, bespoke alloy wheels, parking sensors and sophisticated computer functions. The SEL also pairs with the more powerful 90PS engine which increases performance but slightly reduces economy.
