THE Volkswagen Polo has become an everyday feature of life on the road and the latest model is the best yet.

The sixth generation Polo has just been given a shot in the arm with the introduction of Match models which come loaded with kit.

The Match replaces the Polo SE and is available in three and five-door bodystyles priced from £12,960.

Standard equipment includes cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, front fog lights with static cornering function, tinted rear windows and 15-inch alloy wheels.

Volkswagen says there is some £900 worth of additional equipment fitted to the Polo Match compared to the SE.

The Polo Match is available with Volkswagen's 1.0 and 1.2-litre petrol engines and the company's economical 1.4-litre diesel which has a claimed fuel return of 78.5mpg and tax free emissions of 93g/km.

The diesels are priced from £15,170 for the three-door model and £15,800 for the five door.

The 1.2-litre turbo petrol versions of the Polo Match are also available with seven speed DSG automatic gearboxes instead of a five-speed manual box.

The DSG models cost from £15,480 and with emissions of 109g/km are rated at 60.1mpg but are the quickest of the Match models with a 0 to 60 acceleration of 10.8 seconds and a top speed of 114mph.

All versions of the Polo match come with air conditioning, a 6.5-inch touchscreen and the onboard software includes Volkswagen's ‘Think Blue Trainer' which analyses driving styles and gives tips for achieving optimum economy.
