The Volkswagen Polo BlueMotion has gone on sale, with official CO2 emissions rated at 91g/km.

Powered by a 75bhp 1.2 litre turbo diesel engine, with 133lb ft of torque, it achieves its official average of 80.7mpg thanks to longer gearing on the Polo’s five speed gear box, regenerative braking and an automatic start-stop system.

Its emissions rating means the car is free to tax and puts it in the lowest company car tax band of 13 per cent.

It travels from 0-62mph in 13.9sec and has a top speed of 107mph.

Prices start from £14,445.

Of all the conventionally engined cars on sale in the UK at the moment only the Smart Fortwo diesel is rated as emitting less CO2.

The fifth-generation Volkswagen Polo has junior Golf looks, but is that enough?

Yes, they will...I wonder if they'll take the stop-start off all the models in time. It would be interesting to hear BMW's reasoning for deleting this feature, after all, I think they were one of the first manufacturers to go for it in a big way.

Also went for Nimbus Grey metallic paint but if it was just my choice it would have been white every time! But I agree on wanting the 1.2 TSi 105. That's if they do actually exist, my dealer has yet to get delivery dates for his orders.

Seems only Skoda are able to get hold of the 1.2 TSi at the moment. The Polo and Golf are available to order with it, but I've yet to see a single one, and in the Golfs case it hasn't even been road-tested yet.
