Polo awarded top spot, for safety.

30 April 2018

The Polo has been named ‘Safe Car of the Year’ at the inaugural FirstCar Awards, held this week at the renowned Royal Automobile Club, Pall Mall. It is not the first significant accolade to be presented to Volkswagen’s perennially popular supermini since the latest generation went on UK sale last October.

“The Volkswagen Polo brings big-car safety standards to the supermini market,” said David Motton, editor of FirstCar.

“It has earned a five-star rating from the safety experts at Euro NCAP, achieving the highest score for any car in its class. We're delighted that so much safety equipment and driver assistance technologies are included as standard, including City Emergency Braking (Volkswagen's autonomous emergency braking system) which is a standard fit across all Polo models.

“Good all-round visibility also helps make the Polo an extremely safe choice for new drivers.”

As part of its latest round of comprehensive crash tests, industry safety body Euro NCAP (European New Car Assessment Programme) rated the Polo the best performing in the supermini class with a five-star rating and an overall score of 96%. In the same set of tests, the T-Roc and Arteon also scored the best results in their respective classes, with identical scores of 96% overall.

The main focus of the new sixth-generation Polo is a major increase in cabin and luggage space within larger external dimensions alongside the debut of new engines, sharper design, new ‘big car’ assistance systems, the application of a new generation of infotainment systems, and the global debut of the second generation of Volkswagen’s Active Info Display.

The developments in Polo – which has found a home with more than 1.4 million drivers in the UK over the last 42 years – also reflect a new level for assistance systems in the supermini segment. Technologies such as City Emergency Braking with new Pedestrian Monitoring function, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Blind Spot Detection significantly improve safety.

The New Generation polo is available from £13,860.00 with a £500 deposit contribution* and one-year free insurance** for over 18’s.

Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited are Appointed Representatives of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 571076). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of finance providers and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time.
