Three little letters. One big difference.
All the style, safety features and technology of the Polo you love, with GTI performance under the hood.

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.
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.2Overseas model shown

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.

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.
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.Overseas model shown.
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.Overseas model shown.
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 new Polo GTI – it doesn’t just act the part, it looks it too.
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.Overseas model shown.
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.Overseas model shown.
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.Overseas model shown.
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.
Technology and safety
Life moves quickly. That’s why the Polo GTI has all the technology you need to keep up with a fast-paced modern lifestyle.
