With over 40 years on the clock, the Polo has certainly stood the test of time but there’s nothing dated about the latest models which boast fresh, stylish looks and amazing fuel efficiency.
If you’re looking for a smart supermini that is roomy, reliable and clever then this could be a smart choice. Best of all you can pick up a new VW Polo with a low deposit and free insurance, discounted insurance or cashback.
There’s no denying that the Polo is a classy little motor, and where its predecessors were more quietly stylish, the latest model proudly boasts a gorgeous two-tone dashboard and sharp exterior lines. VW have made all new Polos 5-door, further boosting its practicality.
On the road, the Polo handles well making light work of traffic in town. It stands up confidently to longer motorway journeys too, and it corners with confidence.
You’ll be impressed by how roomy this car feels up front, and it’s got a decent amount of space in the back to comfortably seat three of your mates without things getting overly intimate. The boot doesn’t disappoint either with a bigger-than-before 351 litre capacity that beats most of its rivals.
There’s also some crafty integrated storage areas including a decent sized glove box, a variety of cubby holes, cup holders and pockets. There’s plenty of places to store your belongings and keep the cabin looking tidy enough to make your mum proud!
With combined functionality of Apple 'CarPlay', Google 'Android Auto', and 'MirrorLink' available, you can mirror your smartphone display on the infotainment touch-screen via USB connection.
Start/Stop, Hill Hold Control, airbags, Forward Collision Detection – all of this and more come as standard, with loads of extras available if you fancy things like parking sensors or cruise control.
The Polo’s running costs are low thanks to impressively efficient engines and affordable insurance ratings. Across the range competitive MPGs and low CO2 emission scores are great for both your wallet and the environment.
The new Polo is very competitively priced when compared to rival superminis, and being part of the popular and trusted VW group means it does well in terms of residual value.
What is a guarantor?
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments. Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.
How does the insurance work?
We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Highway Insurance (part of the Liverpool Victoria Group)
How long until I get my new car?
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
What happens after the first year?
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
