If you’ve been gunning for a reasonably spec’d VW Polo in the UK, then you might be in luck. The second-tier SE trim level is making way for the so-called ‘Match’ spec, featuring additional kit for the starting price of £16,465 ($21,509).
The Match adds 15-inch ‘Seyene’ alloys, front fog lights, tinted rear windows, plus front and rear parking sensors. All that would have cost an extra £980 ($1,280) on the Polo SE.
Buyers can opt for either the 1.0-liter 80 PS 5-speed manual model, which is the entry-level one, or the 1.0-liter TSI 95 PS, which can be had either with a 5-speed manual (£17,180 / $22,444) or a 7-speed DSG (£18,530 / $24,200).
“This new Match trim replaces SE with a considerable bundle of additional equipment, and makes the Polo even better value for money,” said VW UK Polo product manager, Lisa Hartley.
The 2020 VW Polo range costs upwards of £15,390 ($20,105) in the UK, but it can set you back as much as £23,520 ($30,725) if you opt for the GTI Plus version.
