With CO2 emissions of only 87g/co2 Volkswagen is promising its Polo Bluemotion model will be the cleanest supermini money can buy when it goes on sale in the UK next year.
I must admit, I was never really a fan of the Polos. I had the old tiny Lupo, and one accident in that, and I changed into my present Clio with its 5 Star safety. We also have a Fiat 500, and we all thought that the Fox looked far too drab. But the rear lights on the new Polo, even though they look like a Toyota, still look better than the circular ones. And that emission figure is great. Something good is coming out of the oil price rise we have had.
