TSI Engine

A finely tuned athlete

The Polo GTI’s 2.0L turbocharged TSI engine hits breakneck speed in a matter of seconds. The best part is it's also a fuel efficient car, consuming a modest 6.1L per 100km.2

2. Fuel consumption figures according to Australia Design Rule (ADR) 81/02 derived from laboratory testing. Factors including but not limited to driving style, road and traffic conditions, environmental influences, vehicle condition and accessories fitted, will in practice in the real world lead to figures which generally differ from those advertised. Advertised figures are meant for comparison amongst vehicles only.

Differential Lock

Stick to the road

Fitted as standard, the extended electronic diff lock controls the brake pressure to prevent the wheels from spinning or skidding around corners. You’ll stick to the road like glue as you tackle corners, twisting and turning with precision and confidence.

GTI Suspension

Calm cruising to dynamic driving

From handling the everyday drive, to the times you may want to liven things up a bit, the Driving Profile Selection allows you to alter the tuning of the Sport Select Suspension to a firmer ride, allowing the dampers to take on the characteristics of a true performance car.

DSG Performance

Power without the intermissions

DSG, the automatic gearbox, is the combination of convenience with manual car precision, delivering swift, seamless shifting. Featuring 2 separate gear sets operated by 2 clutches, DSG delivers lightning-fast and silky-smooth gear changes with no interruption to power, traction or acceleration.

Great from afar. Even better up close.

The Polo GTI can be spotted from a mile off thanks to its iconic GTI design and red trim strip. With a honeycomb-shaped grille, red brake callipers, GTI badge, unique bumpers and spoilers, and dynamic alloys, its features are a thing of sporty splendour that let’s onlookers know – this is no ordinary Polo.

Looks the part

As a seamless continuation of the exterior, the Polo GTI's interior dons 'Clark' tartan upholstered sports seats, holding you in position for when you put the pedal to the metal. The steering wheel and gear stick are adorned with leather and red stitching, creating a sleek and sporty feeling throughout. It's certainly looking the part.

Wind in your hair

Immerse your passengers in sweeping panoramic views with the optional sliding and tilting sunroof3 of the Polo GTI. The large pane of glass extends of the entire width across the roof with a large opening width, so you can enjoy the breeze while your passengers watch the clouds float – or flash – by.

LED Headlights

Cast light on the road

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.
