Diesel Cars: Why are people concerned?

The recent Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal has everyone talking. Many are wondering what the big deal is and what all the fuss is about?

Well, the simple answer is – Pollution!

It is assumed by many that diesel engines produce less carbon dioxide (CO2) therefore they are better than their petrol counterparts – Better for the environment, better for us. But how bad is the problem?

2014 Volkswagen Polo first drive review

The VW Polo is becoming more economical, cleaner and safer. The facelift appears to be gentle, but with a striking difference.

Other than the LED lights and new bumpers, there’s not much change for the Polo. However, under the skin, the engineering department have been busy.

The engine now complies with Euro 6 emissions regulations and comes in offerings of 1.0-litre, 1.2-litre and 1.4-litre configurations. The latter two variations are turbo-charged too, you’ll be pleased to hear.
