WITH THE NEW ‘ 60 REGISTRATION PLATE change of September almost upon us, motoring costs are still on the agenda for the UK ‘ s new car buyers. on cue comes VW ‘ s Polo The three-door hatch costs the five-door option carries a premium. While on the subject of the 1.2-litre, TDI three-cylinder, 12-valve turbodiesel engine develops and 133lb ft of torque for a top speed of with zero to 62mph 13.9 seconds.

The Polo is second best-selling model in the UK, after the family-size sector Prices for the Polo range at Ј9,790 for the 1.2-litre petrol S rising to Ј18,875 for the new 1.4-litre GTI a 7-speed DSG twin-clutch auto and a five-door body style.

The fifth-generation Polo is the largest and also the most technically In fact, the new Polo is just a smaller Golf: solid, built and with exemplary and balance. It is a real chip of the old because it looks like a encouraging cash-conscious owners to without moving to a lesser Talking of downsizing, the three-door offers 350-1,305 litres of space; the three-door Polo litres.

If these do not bring in more sales the BlueMotion cost of motoring surely will for ‘eco’ and drivers. As countless automotive point out, modern petrol and diesel engines are fuel and CO2 friendly and cheaper in motoring conditions than electric plug-ins or future models.

Yes alternative powered will have a place in the for some users but the mainstream will remain petrol or power for many years to and each year the improvements arriving. There are fewer to be made driving a fuel-efficient or petrol fuelled car; a Hybrid or electric powered there are significant drawbacks as need care to achieve and CO2 savings and, of course, cost significantly more to

Talking of real-life conditions my test Polo 1.2 TDI BlueMotion hatch achieved an average during my week’s motoring. driving included lots of runs into town and a motorway journey carrying a and luggage. On the motorway, cruising at the Polo BlueMotion returned and the worst figure I saw on the on-board was 61mpg for an early morning journey in traffic.

So it’s not the official figure claimed by VW but for the 72mpg+ is better than any I’ve driven on similar and the car is considerably cheaper to buy in the first As I say, driving with no
