The Volkswagen Polo range has sold over 14 million cars since its launch, so it's important that the next generation builds on the success. Looking at pictures of the new Polo which will arrive in January 2018, we expect that this model will be a roaring success.

'When I started Powerlifting as a sport 2 years ago, I never dreamt in a million years that I would ever get to the level that I am now competing. In the meantime, having recently competed at Scottish Classics Championships, attaining 3 pBs, and 3 new Scottish Junior Records in my sport, I have been selected to attend the Commonwealth Championships in South Africa this September 2017. To travel across the world and represent my country is not only a great honour but an achievement and an opportunity that I do not want to pass up. I am beyond proud to go and represent my country, Team Scotland!!'

41 years after the unveiling of the original Golf GTI, there's a new VW junior hot hatch which seeks to be its spiritual successor.Introducing the Volkswagen Up! GTI.
Weighing less than 1 ton and boasting 115 PS, the Up! GTI will offer thrills by the dozen. With a top speed of 123 MPH and a mid 8 second sprint to 60 MPH, its performance is on par with the original Golf GTI.
It'll arrive in our showroom early next year in limited numbers, and we think demand will outstrip supply. We've already had an order from one of our service team, eager to get their hands on the first car to arrive.
Prices and specifications will be announced later this year. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and website for all the latest updates.
