The VW Polo that's one equipment grade up from the base S now comes with more equipment and a new name, as the SE is replaced by the Match.
The Polo Match has a P11D of £16,315 when specified with the 80hp 1.0-litre engine, or £17,030 for the 95hp version with a manual gearbox. The DSG automatic gearbox adds a further £1350 to the price.
Those prices are £200 up on those for the old SE, but in return, the Match gets 15in alloy wheels, front fog lights, rear tinted windows, and front and rear parking sensors. Those options previously would have added £980 to the price.
Further standard equipment includes an 8in infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, as well as adjustable lumbar support for the seats.
CO2 outputs range from 106-108g/km on the NEDC cycle, or 125-139g/km on the WLTP. The gap between the manual and automatic 95hp unit is the biggest, with the manual version only emitting 127g/km of CO2.
