Volkswagen unveiled the revised Polo GTI at the Paris Motor Show, a model which received some cosmetic tweaks as well as a new engine.
The well-known 1.4-liter TSI is now replaced by a 1.8-liter TSI producing 192 horses and 320 Nm of torque. Paired with a standard six-speed manual transmission, the 0-100 km/h sprint is possible in 6,7 seconds with a top speed of 236 km/h.
There’s also a seven-speed DSG transmission which provides the same figures but somehow affects the torque, namely it has 250 Nm, while the horsepower amount is the same.
In terms of styling, the 2015 VW Polo GTI comes with revised bumpers, LED daytime running lights, 17-inch alloy wheels, a revised grille with honeycomb mesh inserts and dual-pipe exhaust system.
The sports suspension also comes handy while inside, buyers get sport seats with plaid upholstery and a flat-bottom sporty steering wheel. Faux aluminum pedal caps, new red stitching and gloss black accents are also other notable features.
