Volkswagen Polo GTI – “Sport Select” running gear

Three letters, inextricably associated with Volkswagen: GTI. Gran Turismo Injection. Now a new GTI is picking up speed with the next Volkswagen Polo GTI. Power output of 147 kW / 200 PS, 6-speed DSG fitted as standard and a top speed of 237 km/h. From 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.7 seconds. Fuel consumption of 5.9 litres per 100 km reflects the drive system’s efficiency. The new Polo GTI is another highpoint in the long GTI history. Climb in, adjust the sports seats, buckle up – an ergonomically made-to-measure connection between driver and machine. In the new Volkswagen Polo GTI the engine starter button becomes the trigger for a great driving experience, as the development team has created a style of dynamic handling that facilitates committed driving and yet integrates supreme safety and high levels of comfort. This alliance of dynamism, safety and comfort is the secret behind the success of the GTI concept and a core characteristic of the new Polo GTI. Key features: very agile drive system, low unladen weight (1,355 kg) and power-to-weight ratio (6.78 kg/PS), firm sports-oriented running gear that is also good for long-distance driving, assured front-wheel drive and an ergonomically ideal sitting position. This is all packaged in an expressive exterior and interior design. Topped off with classic GTI insignia such as the typical red stripe in the radiator grille, the GTI gear knob and the legendary ‘Clark’ plaid seat covers. Equipped with a connected and largely digitalised cockpit, the Polo GTI, always offered in four-door format, is thus ideal as the compact, affordable sports car of a new generation.
