Volkswagen's new five-door Polo will cost from £10,035.
The fifth-generation Polo is available with a choice of three petrol and two diesel engines. Two 1.2-litre petrol units are on offer, producing 59bhp and 69bhp and a 1.4-litre petrol unit, which produces 84bhp.
Completing the range are two 1.6-litre common rail TDI units, which produce 74bhp and 89bhp. A new 1.2-litre turbocharged TSI petrol engine, which produces 104bhp, will be available from early next year.
VW is offering four trim levels for the new Polo – S, Moda, SE and SEL – and GTI and Bluemotion models will appear in 2010. Every model gets four airbags, ESP and ABS, while higher spec models are equipped with features including sat-nav, DAB digital radio and electronic climate control.
VW is predicting sales of around 7000 units this year, rising to around 37,000 units in 2010. Deliveries will commence on 16 October.
