The main improvements come under the bonnet, with a new full range of EU6 compliant engines. The diesel Bluemotion model has been replaced, this time with a new three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engined model. It’s the cleanest Polo ever, producing just 94g/km of CO2. An updated Polo GTI with more power is also on the way, however not until next year.

A new safety system, called ‘Automatic Post-Collision Braking System’, will be fitted as standard to all new Polos, automatically activating the car’s brakes following a collision, helping to minimise the chances of a secondary accident.
