AA Cars works closely with thousands of UK used car dealers to bring you one of the largest selections of Volkswagen Polo cars on the market. You can also browse Volkswagen dealers to find a second hand car close to you today. All used Volkswagen Polo on the AA Cars website come with free 12 months breakdown cover.
Another Volkswagen mainstay, five generations of Polo have been mint additions to the UK market since 1975. Internally, there's little to choose between the Polo and Golf. Where the two differ is in size: it’s best to think of the Polo as a younger brother of its famous counterpart, younger AND cheaper. The Polo is cheaper to buy and run and sometimes a little nippier than the Golf, but no less able on long journeys. In fact, consider the Polo Bluemotion, free to tax and, incredibly, able to run at over 80mpg! The MKV Polo features VW’s lovely ergonomic styling and excellent build quality. Keenest eyes should look out for the interesting CrossPolo.

Volkswagen Polo Back to top
Nearly 40 years since it was first manufactured, the Polo is as popular as it's ever been. A mix of class, comfort and affordability, it's easy to see why it still captures the public's imagination.
A picture of automotive reliability since its launch in 1975, the Polo is one of the leading superminis on the market - as its persistent popularity can attest to. Boasting one of the sleekest interiors of any similar model available, the secure handling and comfortable ride make Polos one of the best all-rounder cars on offer today.
Why buy a Polo? Back to top
The Volkswagen Polo range is safe, reliable and practical.
Widely thought of as being one of the best built superminis on the market, the Polo has a reliable reputation, efficient engines and an elegant interior which make it one of Volkswagen's most consistently popular cars.
With models ranging from 35mpg to 80.7mpg, the Polo is efficient to run; particularly the 1.2 and 1.6-litre diesels, while the petrol Blue GT offers similar fuel economy using an inventive cylinder shut-off technology which keeps CO2 emissions down. As typical with other VW models, reliability is a plus point, and so maintenance and repair costs are also generally very affordable, making Polos particularly economic to own and run.
Having achieved the highest possible rating - five-stars - in Euro NCAP crash tests, the Polo is one of the safest cars in its class and boasts four airbags, ABS and ESP as standard. Along with being affordable to run and maintain, their initial cost is well placed under that of its competitors, making it one of the most economic cars on the market.
Being a popular model, there are a number of different engine sizes available, catering to all drivers looking for a reliable supermini. A 1.4-litre model offers the best option to someone looking for an all-rounder, while the 1.2-litre TSI turbo petrol offers a bit more excitement in terms of its drive.
Time has clearly been spent designing a sophisticated and spacious interior and as a result the Polo is widely regarded to have some of the best design in the supermini market. With a keen attention to detail and an emphasis on quality materials, there is a decidedly mature and simple layout to the car, which makes it both easy to use and cultured.
Polos are reliable, competent cars and, coming with a variety of engine sizes and models, can offer just as much to the family looking for simple run around car as it can to the weekend thrill seeker.
