Volkswagen Polo GTI

The Polo GTI. Three letters that make a difference

These days, these three letters don’t need explaining to anyone. GTI means fun, pure and simple. And in this case, GTI means big car perfomance in a small car package. The Polo GTI.

The Polo GTI = style and performance in one

Iconic GTI design

Surround yourself in the feel of the GTI that continues in the vehicle interior, including decorative stitching on the steering wheel and floor mats, as well as the checked "Clark" seat covers.

After all, you want to see well and look good

Lighting the way, in more ways than one: the LED headlights with cornering lighting and the fog lights look good at the same time as increasing good visibility.

A multitude of features to keep you moving

Whether it's the range of safety and assistance programmes or the sports suspension with driving profile selections, the Polo GTI is sure to please.

The 200 most important reasons why you need a Polo GTI

With a huge 147 kW, the engine proudly hits the 200 HP mark. That’s enough to accelerate the compact athlete from 0 to 100 in 6.7 seconds. What's more, the TSI engine achieves an unprecedented level of tractive power, even at low engine speeds. Driving doesn’t get more fun than this – and we haven't even come to the XDS differential lock yet.

Do you love driving round corners? Your Polo GTI does, too

The standard XDS electronic differential lock reduces the vehicle's tendency to understeer. Now nothing gets in the way of a sporty approach to cornering.

Experience your steering response and even the gear-shift points adjust automatically. Whatever your mood, you set the tone with a range of driving styles.

Slow down on the spending

The start-stop system saves fuel by switching off the engine when the vehicle is stationary. Like when it’s at a red traffic light. All you have to do is take your foot off the clutch. When the lights go green, engage the clutch again and the engine will start back up. Just as simple and efficient: brake energy recuperation. This function uses an alternator to generate energy when you apply the brake or coast. This energy is then stored in the battery.

With a look to match its performance

You won’t need to tell anyone that you’re driving a Polo GTI. They’ll already know just from looking at its red trim strips, the hallmark honeycomb ventilation grille, red brake calipers and the striking sporty wheels.

And when they climb aboard they’ll know for sure thanks to the GTI-inspired interior design with un-mistakeable check-pattern seats.

A true highlight

Looking good with good visibility – even on corners.

The expressive LED headlights with a design that incorporates the hallmark red GTI line.

And anyone who sees the Polo GTI from behind (a scenario that is pretty likely) will love the standard dark red LED tail light clusters.

Dynamic, even when they aren’t moving

Striking and confident: the standard 17-inch “Milton Keynes” wheels.

Or perhaps you’d prefer the next size up? The sporty and bold design of the optional 18-inch “Brescia” alloy wheels leave plenty of space for a unique highlight: the red brake calipers.
