Put more in. Get more out.

The Polo GTI is here with a 2.0 GTI 147kW DSG® engine, “Art Velour” Titanium black seat finishes, 17" Milton Keynes alloy wheels, twin tail pipes, front and rear spoilers along with the classic GTI insignia. The performance-driven design allows drivers to shift into a new mode of boldness with the leather-wrapped multi-function sports steering wheel. It is also equipped with optional features like IQ.DRIVE and Beats sound system which makes the Polo GTI, the ideal compact performance car of a new generation.

Level up your drive with more power 

With an impressive 147 kW under the bonnet, the new Polo GTI delivers the sporty performance drivers expect. With acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds, you’ll notice it every time you start the engine and whenever you look in your rear view mirror. Plus with a DSG dual-clutch gearbox, the new Polo gives you uninterrupted driving performance by allowing for seamless gear changes and a more economical drive. 


Keeps you to your lane, and keeps others at a distance.

The new Polo includes a capacitive steering wheel when you opt for Travel Assist1: thanks to a touch-sensitive surface, it can detect whether you physically have your hands on the wheel. Travel Assist puts the comfort into driving by providing assistance in monotonous and tiring situations2. Travel Assist also helps keep you in lane and maintain your speed while taking into account the distance from vehicles in front, especially on motorways and major roads2.
