Brief History of the Volkswagen Polo

The Volkswagen Polo is a compact car that has been manufactured since the late 70s. The first generation was produced from 1975 to 1981, the second generation from 1981 to 1994, the third generation from 1994 to 2002 and the fourth generation from 2002 to 2012. Volkswagen released a facelifted version of the fifth-generation model in 2017 adding a range of new features including Beats speakers and Front Assist technology. A new version is expected to be released in 2022.

Volkswagen Polos are popular among customers for a number of reasons. For starters, the car is designed to be fuel-efficient and easy to drive as the engine is smaller than other models. That said, it still has enough power and cargo space to make it both a car enthusiast’s dream and a practical option too.

When you’re looking at financing a Volkswagen Polo, it’s important to consider the depreciation of the car and its age. For example, a new Volkswagen Polo will lose value much quicker than an older model as the new car has more technology packed into it.

If you’re looking to lease a Volkswagen Polo, can help you even if you’ve been denied credit in the past.

The most common method is personal contract purchase (PCP). This is similar to renting, with a small per cent of the value of the car paid at the end of each term, plus interest. You’ll have no equity in your vehicle at the end of your contract and will need to return it.

If you want more flexibility, you could look into hire purchase (HP). HP is like PCP but with one important difference—you have an option to buy at the end of your term.

Finally, there’s leasing. Leasing can be a good option if you’re looking for something temporary and don’t want to worry about vehicle maintenance or repairs.
