An actual-size ice model of a VW Polo was displayed in London last week as part of a new advertising campaign for the car. Commissioned by an agency, and on show outside the Saatchi Gallery on the south bank, it was made from long lasting ice engineered not to melt, and imported from Canada for the stunt.

The adverts promote the inclusion of of standard air conditioning on the new Volkswagen Polo Twist special edition, hence the blocks of ice. Genius. It's a good job that motorhomes sold with portable toilets aren't marketed using the same lateral thinking.

    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided
  • Kia Stonic
    First Drive
    18 October 2017
    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
