Small is not really a word that you’d associate with the latest Volkswagen Polo.

Even though it’s one of the most compact new Volkswagens that you can buy, the boot will take three large suitcases and the back of the Polo will accommodate two adults under 6ft (three is a squeeze).

It looks and feels like a bigger car too, with a conservative exterior design; solid and clearly laid-out interior; and a comfortable, stable ride over poorly-maintained British roads.

If you were considering a Volkswagen Golf or similar family hatchback, then the odds are the the Polo will suit you just as well - for a lower price.

Brand new models start at more than £14,000 before discounts, but you will save with a nearly-new car. prices for 2018 Polos start at £10,990 on BuyaCar and the Volkswagen's strong used values help to keep the cost of finance under control: monthly instalments start at £158. A cheaper option is the previous-generation Polo, which ended production in 2017. This has similarly grown-up design and performance, but has less space in the back and boot. Prices for these cars start at £5,995.

The problem with the latest Polo’s spaciousness is that it’s no longer a small and nippy runaround. It’s now more than four metres long and approaching 1.8 metres wide, which makes it less manoeuvrable in tight spots.

The approach has also been followed by the newest of its rivals: the Ford Fiesta and Seat Ibiza, which offer similar dimensions and interior space, although the Polo’s 351-litre boot is larger than the 311 litres in the Fiesta.

For truly pint-size motoring, the Volkswagen up!, Hyundai i10 and Renault Twingo will give you much more chance of squeezing into a tight parking space.
