Compact hatches don’t come any hotter than the Polo GTI. Boasting the iconic GTI body styling, chrome exhaust pipes, 17” Milton Keynes alloy wheels and a 2.0 litre turbocharged TSI engine, the Polo GTI is what fun on four wheels looks like.
Since 1976, the original hot hatch has carried a distinct visual look that has famously become its identity amongst the hot hatches. Outside, the red grille strip and GTI badging let you know this is no ordinary Polo. Step inside and you’ll feel the ‘Clark’ tartan upholstered sports seats hold you in position, preparing you for the burst of power the moment you plant your foot.
From handling the everyday drive to the times you may want to liven things up even more. With Sport Select Suspension, you can alter the tuning to a firmer ride, as the dampers take on the characteristics of true sports suspension. This is all done through the Driving Profile Selection, where the driver can choose from Normal, Sport, Eco and also Individual for a truly personal feel.
The Polo GTI is packed with modern technology that offers as much ‘info’ as it does ‘entertainment’ so you stay connected and feel at home when you’re on the road.
Whether you’re after a better route to dodge the traffic, or just want to listen to your own music, the Polo GTI has you covered. The Infotainment system gives you access to all these features and more, with a brilliant 8” high resolution touchscreen display.
The Active Info display lets you customize 3 different personalised dash views to suit your driving preference. The high-resolution screen sits behind the steering wheel, keeping tabs on your Polo GTI’s performance and efficiency. You can choose a configuration of gauges, or even display full screen navigation and maps.
Access your smartphone’s screen, selected apps, maps, and music through App-Connect on your car’s touchscreen and Voice Activation. This is possible thanks to three innovative technologies: Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink® interfaces. There’s also an additional 2x USB ports for extra power to accessories.
The days of clicking the button on your key fob to get into your Volkswagen are over. Simply approach your Polo GTI with your key fob and the car will unlock automatically when you reach to open the door. Once inside, fire up this turbocharged beast with a simple push of a button.
The Polo GTI is loaded with intelligent driver assistance systems to keep you safe by helping you deal with critical situations, or even avoid them. Even if you don’t always notice this technology, it feels good to know that they’re there.
A radar sensor detects when a vehicle or pedestrian suddenly enters your path without warning and automatically applies the brakes to reduce the likelihood of a collision.
Whether reversing out of a busy parking lot or trying to squeeze into a tricky spot, an extra set of eyes are always handy.
When cornering, it responds to the load relief at the front wheel on the inside of a corner. This improves traction and reduces the tendency to understeer.
The GTI comes equipped with state-of-the-art safety technology. However, you can enhance your driving environment further with our optional Driver Assistance Package.
The cruise control system with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), available with the optional Driver Assistance package, lets you set the speed you want to travel and the gap you want to allow between you and the car in front. Using a radar sensor, the car then maintains your speed and your distance.
The Blind Spot Monitor, available with the optional Driver Assistance package, uses an LED display in the exterior mirror to alert you to potential dangers in your blind spot. It works in conjunction with the Rear Traffic Alert system, which monitors traffic passing at the rear of the vehicle. If your car comes too close to another vehicle, you will be alerted by audible and visual warnings.
The Park Assist system, available with the optional Driver Assistance package, in the new Polo lets you park like a machine. When parking, it scans the side of the road for the perfect spot, and once engaged, it automatically steers itself into parallel parking spaces or parking bays and even out of parallel spaces again.
The proactive occupant protection system, available with the optional Driver Assistance package, detects dangerous situations and automatically takes precautionary actions. The windows and the sunroof are closed to a small gap to optimise the effect of the head and side airbags, and the front seat belts are tensioned. Once the danger passes, the belts are loosened and the side windows and sunroof can be opened again.
The Polo GTI’s 2.0 litre turbocharged TSI engine really packs a punch, pumping out 147kW of power and 320Nm of torque. And all that performance doesn’t come at the cost of fuel efficiency, with the Polo GTI consuming a modest 6.1L/100km
