Free insurance offer on new Volkswagen Polo

With prices starting from £13,855, the new Volkswagen Polo is now open for ordering, ahead of deliveries starting in early 2018. Impressively, the firm’s rolling it out with some added incentives, too: free insurance, a finance deposit contribution, and eligibility for the firm’s scrappage scheme.

Those aged 18 to 80 can enjoy a year’s free car insurance cover when they buy a new Polo – and if they choose to buy via a 5.9 percent Solutions PCP, they’ll get a £500 deposit contribution thrown in too.

There is some small print: buyers of the GTI have to be aged 25 or over, and those aged 18-24 buying a regular Polo must have a telematics device fitted in order to qualify. Cars must also be registered by 31 March 2018.

That’s not the only offer VW’s running, either. If they have a pre-2010 Euro 5 diesel vehicle, they can get £2,000 for it as part of the Volkswagen Scrappage Upgrade scheme. They need to have owned the car for at least six months, and must order their new car by 31 December 2017.

Buyers of the new Polo get some other added extras for free, says VW: boot space is boosted 25 percent over the old model, to 351 litres, while a 94mm longer wheelbase gives more interior space. LED running lights are standard across the range and every model, including the base S, gets an eight-inch colour touchscreen.

Motoring Research has already driven the new 2018 Volkswagen Polo. Our Peter Burgess declared it a fine new supermini that offers so much more than the car it replaces: “You could buy the Polo instead of a Golf and really not lose out very much, either in looks, practicality or the driving experience.”
