Build your Polo GTI

Wear the GTI badge with pride

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.

Bold design at its best

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.

Experience extraordinary performance

Showcase your passion for performance with turbocharged engine power, race-tuned sports suspension and precise road-handling.

Engine packs a power punch 

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.

Customisable suspension

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.

Technology that makes anything possible

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. 

Cutting-edge digital display

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.

IQ.DRIVE – drive with confidence

You never know when you might need the safety systems in your car until you really do need them. With the IQ.DRIVE suite of safety systems, you can depend on your Polo GTI to safeguard what matters most – you and your passengers4.

Clever technology has you covered

Travel Assist allows for partially automated driving at highway and inner city speeds, while Front Assist can help you avoid striking a pedestrian or other object in front of the vehicle4.

Protection if things go wrong
