Solid - Ascot grey
It might not be the flashiest colour around, but the sandy tones of Ascot Grey is one for those people for which body colour doesn’t matter too much. It’s a no-cost option as well, so that means if you’re trying to save money on your car, it’s an easy choice. It’s a lighter colour so grime will show up very easily though and it doesn’t show up as well in the sun like a pearl or metallic colour can.
Special solid - Pure white
White is a colour that has wide appeal with used car buyers, so you shouldn’t have problems selling a Polo in Pure white when you decide to upgrade to a new car. It helps, too, that the colour suits the car well, and lets the darker trim pieces stand out that little bit more. It’ll be a colour that’ll require frequent washes to keep looking spotless, though.
All the information you need on the Volkswagen Polo.
Special solid - Pure white with deep black pearl roof
The Pure White and Deep Black combination is for those who really like the split-tone contrasting roof. With the solid body colour and shiny roof, it’ll glint in the sunlight and is the cheapest split-tone combination you can get on the Polo. That being said, the roof panel itself isn’t the biggest, but it teams up with the rest of the black detailing well.
Metallic - Reef blue
Being an almost navy shade, Reef blue strikes a good balance between being a subdued and smart-looking paint that’s also less conventional than a black or dark grey. As Reef blue is also a metallic colour, it will also have a lovely deep sheen when bright lights are shone on it.
Metallic - Reflex silver
Another no-nonsense colour you can pick for your Polo is Reflex silver. Because greys and silvers have wide appeal, you shouldn’t have trouble finding a used buyer when it’s time to sell the car on, and this paint also benefits from a premium-feeling metallic sheen. Because it’s a light colour, though, it will be plain for other road users to see when you haven’t given your car a wash in a while.
Metallic - Smokey grey
This darker grey is one of the easier colours to live with in terms of dirt. It may not be the most vibrant, but it suits the Polo by being smart and reserved, much like the car itself. It also is a good colour for the used market, with second-hand buyers likely to favour Smokey Grey.
Metallic - Vibrant violet
The most unique colour for the Polo is the Vibrant Violet, with purple a rare colour on new cars nowadays. The Vibrant Violet will be one that certainly stands out from the crowd among the Polo paint options. But due to it being such a wacky colour, used buyers may not be as attracted to it as much as the more neutral colours available.
Pearl - Deep black
Deep Black is a smart-looking and inoffensive colour that won’t turn away used buyers when you decide to sell the car on. Making this paint option even more interesting is that it’s a pearlescent colour, which means it has a deeper and brighter sheen to it than an equivalent solid or metallic colour. This helps give the car a bit of an upmarket look – though you can easily spoil that by not cleaning it properly, as black paints show up swirl marks really easily.
Special metallic - Kings red
For standing out from the crowd, the Kings Red Metallic colour should be right up there. Something to bear in mind for when it comes to selling your Polo afterwards is that the bright red isn’t the best at attracting buyers, but the colour looks fabulous – especially in the sun. Dirt can also show up quite easily around the bottom edge though.
Metallic - Reef blue with deep black pearl roof
As the colours are very similar in tone, it’s very difficult to see the contrasting roof in most lights. Both shine a lot in the sunlight, and the darker body colour also helps with hiding some grime. The colour also helps with resale value, as it’s a good alternative to black, silver and grey. The additional cost is better spent elsewhere, like the full Reef Blue Metallic colour option without contrast roof.
Metallic - Reflex silver with deep black pearl roof
The Reflex SIlver and Deep Black is the best contrasting colour combination offered with the Polo. It’s great for resale value too, as second-hand buyers are more in favour of neutral colours. Dirt can show up a bit easier on the lighter silver, but it works the best with the black roof, while it also looks very smart with the Polo.
Special metallic - Kings red with deep black pearl roof
Although contrast roofs can look good, the Deep Black looks a bit lost with the metallic Kings Red paint here. This option is a mostly good match for the Polo, but it won’t be as attractive on the second hand market nor will it be the easiest to keep clean. It’s worth saving your money and going for another colour combination if you want a stand-out choice.
