If you’re in the market for a small car there’s a good chance the Volkswagen Polo is on your shortlist. After all, alongside the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa it is a regular fixture in the list of the UK’s best selling cars, with a mixture of practicality, affordability and build quality that buyers find hard to resist.
In this latest CarGurus Used Car Video Review we are focusing on the fifth generation of Volkswagen Polo, sold between 2009 and 2017. With hundreds of used examples to choose from on CarGurus it can be difficult to know where to start, which is where our unique shopping tools come into play. Our Instant Market Value technology, for example, looks for other cars of the same make, model, age, mileage and specification being offered in your search area, and then ranks results according to what cars represent the best deals, rather than simply showing you the cheapest examples first.
Our rankings also factor in dealer ratings from real car shoppers, giving you a guide as to where you’ll find the best customer service, while by showing you how long a dealer has been advertising a particular car and whether the price has been dropped we can help you to understand when it might be worth haggling to get the best price.
It is this level of transparency that is at the core of what CarGurus does, and is also why we are putting together our used car reviews so you can hit the forecourts armed with information about your potential purchase. In the case of the Polo we detail the different body styles, gearboxes and engines on offer, demonstrate how it fares for passenger space and boot capacity, explain why the interior is as classy as you’d expect of a VW, and address what potential problem areas to be aware of.
All that’s left to do then is to head to the CarGurus UK website and start the search for your perfect Polo.
With thanks to Fords of Winsford for providing the Volkswagen Polo in our video. See their full stock on the CarGurus UK website.
