Volkswagen Australia has released its new Polo GTI.
Boasting new, more aggressive styling and a new 1.8-litre TSI engine producing 141kW, the new Polo GTI returns to the
local market with the flair expected of a GTI nameplate.
The new Polo GTI’s 1.8-litre powerplant can be sampled for the first time in either a 6-speed manual or optional
7-speed DSG transmissions. In either form, the turbocharged TSI engine propels the Polo GTI from 0 to 100km/h in 6.7
seconds. Because of the tuning parameters of the dual transmissions available, the engine matched to a 6-speed manual
offers 320Nm of torque, while the 7-speed DSG offers 250Nm. Despite the different torque values, both transmission
combinations deliver the same overall performance, with the DSG offering the better fuel efficiency.
The exterior design of the Polo GTI has been updated to enhance the sportiness of the vehicle. A newly designed front
bumper, featuring fog lights with static cornering function mounted in the lower bumper, incorporates the iconic red
grille which continues into the headlight housing. Sitting on 17-inch ‘Parabolica’ alloy wheels highlighted by red brake
callipers, the side profile of the Polo GTI is also highlighted by unique ‘GTI’ badging and unique side sills; while the
rear of the vehicle maintains its functional, sporting appearance with a rear spoiler and diffuser.
