There’s more to GTI than just power. Thanks to the modern technology that assists you when driving, the excitement of driving a Polo GTI has never been greater.
We compare the engine of the Polo GTI to that of an athlete at its peak. Quick off the mark with an acceleration of 0-62mph in 6.7 seconds, and its low fuel consumption means it barely breaks into a sweat. With the Polo GTI, you pick a car that delivers on both excitement and efficiency.
time to own every twist and turn of the road with the electronic differential
lock. Fitted as standard, it controls the brake pressure to prevent you from
spinning out and skidding around corners. You can tackle bends head on with
precision and fearless confidence… at least within the realms of physics. Now
nothing stands in the way of you and that winding road.
Sporty, progressive styling matches some serious power under the bonnet.
The GTI insignia represents a tradition of modern, state-of-the-art design and advanced technology, so there’s always one thing to be sure of with the Polo GTI – it doesn’t just act the part, it looks it too.
A Volkswagen GTI can be spotted from a mile off thanks to its iconic design and red trim strip, and the Polo GTI is no different. With a honeycomb-shaped grille, red brake caliper, GTI lettering, unique bumpers and spoilers, and dynamic alloys, its features are a thing of sporty splendour that won’t go unnoticed.
The interior looks the part too, with Titanium Black Jacara upholstery contrasted with red stripes nodding to the GTI signature heritage. The steering wheel, gear stick and floor mats are adorned with leather and red stitching, to create a sleek and sporty rally-ready feeling throughout.
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.
The Polo GTI’s 17-inch ‘Parker’ wheels are reminiscent of razor-sharp scythes or angled paddle wheels. Their burnished finish and black interior complete the masterpiece that is the GTI exterior.
The front seats provide side support that keep both the driver and passenger snugly in place at every turn. Lumbar support keeps your lower spine comfortable as your posture is protected from the bumps of the road.
For those that really want to make an impression, the optional 18-inch ‘Brescia’ alloys feature a geometric structure that shows off the red brake calipers from every angle. It’s a little pop that makes a big difference.
Passengers will love the panoramic sliding and tilting roof of the Polo GTI. Its impressively large pane of glass extends over the entire width of the roof, so you can enjoy the sunshine while your passengers watch the clouds go by. Thanks to its larger opening width you can also enjoy a refreshing breeze that circulates throughout the entire car, so now journeys don’t just look good, they feel good too.
Life moves quickly. That’s why the Polo GTI has all the technology you need to keep up with a fast-paced modern lifestyle.
Swap your conventional instrument cluster for an Active Info Display. The high-resolution screen provides you with a whole host of data, such as rev counter, speedometer and mileage recorder. Expect GTI statement features and a completely personalised screen; from driving data to song titles and navigation maps. You can even save multiple profiles depending on who’s driving or what type of journey you’re taking.
You’ll want to use the Discover Media navigation system even if you already know the route. It uses the latest online data to warn you of early stage traffic jams and diversions so you’re never standing still for longer than you’d like. You can also discover new cafes, restaurants and local attractions with the online point of interest (POI) search.
The optional Comfort phone interface makes communication while on the road more convenient than ever. With a hands-free system, USB data and charging port you can make calls and access your contacts wherever you are. Not only that, but if you forget your charging cable, the Polo GTI’s got you covered with a state-of-the-art inductive charging system. All you have to do is place your compatible phone in the front storage compartment and watch your battery life increase.
With Car-Net Guide & Inform*, your Polo is on the information highway and anything you need is just a tap away. No one likes being stuck in traffic, which is why the Guide & Inform feature uses live traffic data to plan – and re-plan – the quickest route. * Included with the Discover Navigation display.
Don’t let being on the road stop you from being connected to the outside world. With Car-Net App Connect, you can view and use all of the compatible apps on your phone via the Composition Media or Discover Media display in your car.
With this much power at your disposal, it’s a relief to know that the Polo GTI comes equipped with advanced driver assistance systems to make sure you’re safe and sound while you’re out and about.
It can be difficult to react to erratic drivers and unpredictable situations, especially if you’re driving in busy traffic. Front Assist with the optional Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is here to help. It lets you set your speed and distance from the car in front, then uses sensors to monitor this. If it detects that you’re getting too close, it will automatic apply pressure to the brakes to slow you down and help prevent an accident.
It can be impossible to predict when a pedestrian is going to step out in front of you. That’s why we developed Pedestrian Detection, a feature that comes as standard with the Polo GTI. As soon as a pedestrian steps out, an audio and visual signal warns you of the danger.1 If you fail to apply the brakes, the system will do it for you to help prevent a collision.
1 Within the system’s limits.
The Polo GTI’s got your back with the optional Blind Spot Sensor with Rear Traffic Alert. It warns you if anything’s approaching your blind spot and monitors the areas to the rear and side of your car as you reverse out of parking spaces.
Long drives and late nights can make you tired behind the wheel. The Driver Alert System monitors your driving style, and if it detects you might be tired it will alert you to take a break.
