Fast, clean and sharper than ever: The Polo GTI
The new Polo GTI has been on the road for a little while now, and it’s still packing a punch. It’s the fastest, most focussed and cleanest performance Polo yet produced.
At its heart is an advanced 1.4-litre TSI engine that uses a supercharger from idle through to 3,000 rpm at which point the turbocharger cuts in to provide boost. The result is an output of 180 PS at 6,200 rpm and 184 lbs ft of torque from 2,000 rpm which, when aligned with a 1,184 kg kerbweight, allows the Polo GTI to accelerate from rest to 62 mph in 6.9 seconds before reaching a top speed of 142 mph.
Despite a keen focus on performance, the new Polo GTI is capable of delivering
47 mpg on the combined cycle while emitting just 139 g/km of CO2.
Like its Golf GTI sibling, the Polo GTI features significant aesthetic changes including new headlight units complete with the option of LED running lights which lend the Polo GTI an imposing new look.
The new Polo GTI is due to arrive in the UK in the summer at which point pricing and specification will be announced. For further details and to register your interest, simply contact your nearest Listers Volkswagen Retailer below.
