Volkswagen Polo or similar (manual)
The VW Polo is an obvious choice for those seeking an all-round performance in a well-designed, compact package. This fuel-efficient little hatchback has great handling and for a couple on a budget with an itinerary of paved roads, the Polo come close to perfection. Blue Lagoon, the Golden Circle and more of Iceland’s most popular destinations are all within reach when driving the VW Polo.
The VW Polo has been a permanent fixture on roads worldwide since 1975 and now in its 5th generation, it is as popular as ever. Complete with features such as Bluetooth connectivity and a USB charger, the lovely little Polo – a regular laureate when it comes to handing out design awards – is a supermini of sorts.
Superior comfort on asphalt but not suitable for highland F-roads.
