All the style, safety features and technology of the Polo you love, with GTI performance under the hood. The Polo GTI has both manners and muscles, sophisticated when observed and impressive when driven. A high-tech, mature, pocket-rocket of a hatch that is crammed full of features, and is as stylish as it is athletic.
The Polo GTI’s 2.0L turbocharged TSI engine hits breakneck speed in a matter of seconds. The best part is it's also a fuel efficient car, consuming a modest 6.1L per 100km.
Fitted as standard, the extended electronic diff lock controls the brake pressure to prevent the wheels from spinning or skidding around corners. You’ll stick to the road like glue as you tackle corners, twisting and turning with precision and confidence.
From handling the everyday drive, to the times you may want to liven things up a bit, the Driving Profile Selection allows you to alter the tuning of the Sport Select Suspension to a firmer ride, allowing the dampers to take on the characteristics of a true performance car.
DSG, the automatic gearbox, is the combination of convenience with manual car precision, delivering swift, seamless shifting. Featuring 2 separate gear sets operated by 2 clutches, DSG delivers lightning-fast and silky-smooth gear changes with no interruption to power, traction or acceleration.
The Polo GTI can be spotted from a mile off thanks to its iconic GTI design and red trim strip. With a honeycomb-shaped grille, red brake callipers, GTI badge, unique bumpers and spoilers, and dynamic alloys, its features are a thing of sporty splendour that let’s onlookers know – this is no ordinary Polo.
As a seamless continuation of the exterior, the Polo GTI's interior dons 'Clark' tartan upholstered sports seats, holding you in position for when you put the pedal to the metal. The steering wheel and gear stick are adorned with leather and red stitching, creating a sleek and sporty feeling throughout. It's certainly looking the part.
Immerse your passengers in sweeping panoramic views with the optional sliding and tilting sunroof4 of the Polo GTI. The large pane of glass extends of the entire width across the roof with a large opening width, so you can enjoy the breeze while your passengers watch the clouds float – or flash – by.
Don’t just own the road: illuminate it. The red GTI line bleeds into the optional LED headlights to create an iconic look, and the lights illuminate around corners to help you tackle bends.
Swap your conventional instrument cluster for an optional Digital Cockpit5. The high-resolution screen provides you with a whole host of data, such as rev counter, speedometer and mileage recorder. You can switch to 3 different personalised dash views to suit your driving preference, from driving data to song titles to navigation maps. You can even save multiple profiles depending on who’s driving or what type of journey you’re taking.
The brilliant 8” infotainment system features App-Connect7 that allows you to seamlessly connect compatible apps from your smartphone to your Polo GTI with Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™. This makes calling friends, pumping your favourite tunes and accessing maps a lot easier on the road.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, it does. Lose the cords and enjoy freedom with the optional Sound and Vision Package that includes Wireless App-Connect.
