Fleet News Awards 2010: Best Supermini

The Volkswagen Polo has been named the Best Supermini in the 2010 Fleet News Awards.

The fifth-generation Polo launched in 2009 illustrates that a small Volkswagen can have exactly the same feeling of quality as a large Volkswagen.

The Polo sits at the top of the class for residual values, and is stylish, spacious, comfortable, refined and safe with all models featuring electronic stability control and at least four airbags. Although larger than the model it replaced, the Polo is also lighter, making it well prepared to exploit its range of fuel-efficient petrol and diesel engines.
If fleets had to choose one small car to offer drivers, the Polo’s great all-round strengths make it an obvious selection while its image also has strong appeal for staff.

Judges’ comments
The Polo has excellent resale values, strong wholelife costs and outstanding build quality with the prestige of the Volkswagen badge. It has a wide choice of body styles and engines with low benefit-in-kind costs. The Polo is perfect for the fleet manager and driver.
