VW POLO 1.0 6n2 as first car?

Hi there;

Been wondering what a VW POLO 6n2 with the 1.0 engine would be like as a first car. As I live in the U.K, I was wondering if it would be good insurance wise? Anyone willing to help, give any facts; statistics on them, (or straight hate on my stupidity,) I would really appreciate it!
