The Polo GTI offers the complete package in terms of performance and style. Every bit the GTI – sporting classic red accents and honeycomb grille – the gripping traction control and more powerful turbocharged engine will not disappoint.

Exhilaration just turned a corner.

Another feather in the cap.

Awarded the best value performance car.
2016 Bang For Your Bucks Champion.

The legendary Polo GTI recently claimed yet another victory – this time in the 2016 Bang For Your Bucks Awards, where judges were blown away by the performance of this compact pocket rocket. Here’s what they had to say; ‘Power is nothing without control - there’s masses of low and mid-range muscle, yet it’s still happy to rev well beyond the 6000rpm redline.’

A powerful first impression.

The Iconic GTI
Me, myself and GTI

Made for the streets with performance at its heart, the Polo GTI has a ton of personality. Sharing the GTI bloodline with the world-famous Golf, the pulsating Polo is a hatch without a match. Experience the pure exhilaration of Volkswagen performance and get behind the wheel of the Polo GTI today.

Make a statement.

The dream body

The Polo GTI is immediately identifiable, with signature GTI honeycomb air intakes, red brake callipers and tartan seats. While stunning new Parabolica 17” alloy wheels and red headlight accents create a fresh new profile.

More than a pretty space

The inside of the Polo GTI also gets a pretty sweet makeover. Distinct GTI badging throughout comes together with Clark tartan seats and a red-stitched leather steering wheel to create a thing of beauty.

Optional Package
Off the charts luxury

The Polo GTI Luxury Package includes sharp LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof and comfort sport seats with Black Alcantara® inserts. The Driver Assistance Package; features satellite navigation, parking sensors and Driver Fatigue detection system.

Next level entertainment.

They say life’s about the journey, not the destination - a mantra the Polo GTI was built on. If you think a car’s merely a tool to get you from A to B, this one’s not for you. A beautiful beast, inside and out, it’s no wonder the infotainment system is as sophisticated as the rest of the car.

The apps from your phone in your car

Access your smartphone’s screen, selected apps, maps, and music through App-Connect on your car’s touchscreen and Voice Control. You can do this thanks to three innovative technologies: Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink® interfaces.

Composition Media
Dial up the entertainment

Enjoy crystal clear audio every time you drive. The 6.5-inch Composition Media audio system brings epic entertainment to your fingertips.

More tech than you can poke a selfie stick at.

The Polo GTI sports a range of driver assistance features, as well as a comprehensive alarm system, intuitive climate control, automatic headlight function and rain-sensing wipers.

Driver Fatigue detection
A welcome wake-up call

This potentially life-saving system continually evaluates steering movements and other independent signals. If fatigue is detected, warns the driver with an alarm, and on the Multi-Function Display recommends the driver takes a break.

Extended Electronic Differential Lock (XDL)
Turn a corner on traction

When cornering, this valuable safety system responds to the load relief at the front wheel on the inside of a corner, which improves traction and reduces the tendency to understeer.

Rear View Camera
See what’s behind you, in front of you

Whether reversing out of a busy parking lot or trying to squeeze into a tricky spot, an extra set of eyes is always handy. The Rear View Camera, installed at the back of the car, displays a live picture on your screen that shows what’s behind you, making reversing safer and easier.

Sport Select suspension
The suspense will thrill you

Using clever electronically adjustable dampers, the Sport Select suspension helps stiffen the vehicle’s suspension. It also alters the steering weight, accelerator response and sound actuator to produce a driving experience nothing short of enthralling.

Safety without compromise.

Featuring an array of safety features that would satisfy the most conservative driver, it should come as no surprise that the Polo GTI has been awarded a maximum 5-star ANCAP safety rating.

Multi-collision brake
Prevent follow-on collisions

When the airbag sensors detect a collision, this state-of-the-art system applies the brakes to slow down the vehicle so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are illuminated and remain activated. The driver can take over at any time.

Traction control
A good steer on safety

Traction control helps you maintain directional stability in critical situations. It improves grip, manages wheel spin and adjusts engine power in slippery conditions. Braking control intervenes, when needed, with Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution and Brake Assist.

The best possible protection

Feel safe with a grand total of six airbags: twin front, side and curtain. Should a collision occur, the airbags combine with the seatbelts to help reduce the risk of severe head and chest injuries. So if something does go wrong, you’ll be pleased you’re in a Polo GTI.

5-star ANCAP Safety Rating
Safety comes as standard

With the 5-star safety rating you can feel at ease on any journey knowing the extensive safety equipment in every Polo GTI will minimise the risk of harm.
