VW Polo GTI 3-4 Front

The Polo GTI.

Three letters for which words fail you.

The letters GTI have always been synonymous with exceptional performance and genuine driving thrills. The new Polo GTI carries on this tradition, attracting admiring glances with its dynamic appearance.


Both famous and infamous, “GTI power” has been synonymous with driving enjoyment for over 40 years. Prepare to be inspired by the performance data, as well as by the modern technology that assists you when driving.

Design & Equipment.

The dynamic look immediately conveys what’s hidden under the bonnet. Internally as well as externally, GTI insignias uphold a long tradition of modern design and advanced technology.

  • Exterior

    Show off!

    A GTI can be recognised from afar – thanks to its characteristic GTI features, combined with its progressive design. The latter includes the red trim strip, honeycomb-shaped ventilation grille, red brake callipers and dynamic alloy wheels.
