Car finance customers looking for a new supermini might consider Volkswagen's (VW) revamped Polo.
According to Auto Express, VW has "freshened up" the small car in a bid to take on a number of recently improved rivals such as Ford's new Fiesta and the Honda Jazz.
It is reported that the new model, which could be made more affordable with approved car finance, will be "chunkier than the current model with a more distinctive front end" and come with a number of new features such as sporty headlights and electric power-steering.
The new Polo will be available in a number of engine sizes including a 1.2-litre three-cylinder unit, a 1.4 four-cylinder model and 1.2-litre super-turbo capable of 105bhp.
It is also expected that the range will feature 1.4 and 1.6-litre TDI diesel options that will offer between 75 and 105bhp as well as meeting all European emissions regulations.
In 2004 the car became the subject of controversy when a video advertisement leaked on to the internet showing a suicide bomber using the vehicle to detonate a bomb - leaving the "Small but tough" Polo intact.
