Underestimate the Polo GTI at your peril. The latest Polo GTI may be small in stature, but it looms large by any other measure. Bold styling, race-bred performance and an outstanding array of innovative tech make the Polo GTI a force to be reckoned with. Let’s not forget all the design features that make this, pure and simple, a GTI. Why settle for less when you can demand great? Why drive anything other than a Polo GTI?
You won’t believe the exhilarating acceleration, ride and handling of the Polo GTI until you have the steering wheel in your hands and eyes set on the road ahead.
Bland is for everyone else. Showcase your style with a car that wears sporty GTI style on its sleeve and demands to be noticed.
If you want cutting-edge technology that will help you drive, keep you safe and make every journey an adventure, it’s all here in the Polo GTI.
GTI body styling is given full expression in this latest Polo GTI, which combines aggressive body contours and exciting new design features in one unique package.
The Polo GTI advertises its exclusivity and passion with low-profile tyres and angular 18-inch ‘Faro’ wheels. The wheels leave you in no doubt of the Polo GTI’s understated style and sporty prowess.
The Polo GTI bears all the signature details you would expect of the fabled GTI badge. Sport front seats with ‘Clark’ sport cloth upholstery provide ample support during hard cornering, while Kings Red dashboard inlays (or optional Deep Iron Grey inlays), black headlining and stainless steel finish pedals give the cabin a racing car cockpit feel. Grip the leather sports steering wheel with its gearshift paddles and it’s easy to feel at one with the car.

It’s the attention to detail that marks this Polo GTI out as the most stylish yet. Powerful Matrix LED headlights sit either side of an illuminated LED grille strip and a new lower LED light module. They help highlight the Polo GTI’s signature red strip and honeycomb lower intake. To the rear, premium LED tail lights with dynamic indicators, a distinctive GTI rear diffuser and exposed dual chrome exhaust tailpipes reveal the best of GTI styling.
Showcase your passion for performance with turbocharged engine power, race-tuned sports suspension and precise road-handling.
With its steady burble at idle and roar under heavy acceleration, the 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged TSI petrol engine in the Polo GTI is a performance powerhouse. An impressive 147kW of power and 320Nm of torque from just 1450rpm is transferred to the road via a 6-speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) drivetrain, with extended electronic differential lock (XDL) providing supreme traction and handling. You might expect electrifying performance like this to come at a significant efficiency cost, but the Polo GTI’s combined fuel consumption figure is only 6.5L/100km.
Driving with intent requires firmer suspension, greater road feel, sportier steering and faster accelerator response. That’s exactly what you get when you choose Sport Select Suspension from the Polo GTI’s Driving Profile Selection. Alternatively, choose ‘Normal’ for softer, more compliant suspension, ‘Eco’ for economical driving or ‘Individual’ for a tailored driving experience.
There’s no end to the innovative technology contained in every Polo GTI. With so many fun features available, you won’t want your drive to end.
The 10.25-inch Digital Cockpit Pro instrument cluster in the Polo GTI doesn’t just present key driving information in vivid colour and detail, it’s fully customisable. That means you can arrange navigation map information, vehicle speed and other performance settings exactly as you want them to be.
Dual zone climate control air-conditioning means you easily and independently regulate the air temperature in the cabin. Temperature control, airflow rate and other functions such as windscreen defrost and rear window heating can all be adjusted with simple-to-use touch surfaces and tactile sliders.
Unlock all the favourite features of your smartphone when you wirelessly connect your phone to the Polo GTI's entertainment system. Take advantage of Bluetooth connectivity and App-Connect3 for smartphone mirroring via Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™, and do away with annoying charging cables when you use wireless phone charging. You can even access DAB+ digital radio to enjoy a multitude of radio stations offering outstanding audio quality.
Illuminate the road ahead with IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights that comprise multiple LEDs per headlight module. Each module can activate different, partially interactive light functions, which means you can use permanent high beam (Dynamic Light Assist) without dazzling other road users. Unique to the Polo GTI is an additional LED light module that is activated when the low beam headlight is turned on.
Your Polo GTI may be perfect just the way it is. But with a range of fantastic optional packages available, you can make it better still.
Make every drive a pleasure with the Polo GTI's Sound & Tech Package. A 9.2-inch Discover Pro navigation system acts as a centrepiece for your in-car infotainment, which is brought vividly to life with a Beats premium audio system with six speakers, 8-channel amplifier and subwoofer. Other features, such as Voice Control, Wireless App-Connect and Keyless Access, are the epitome of convenience.
