With the recent unveil of the facelifted Polo, which aspires to deviate from the traditional design elements that have been preserved in its 45 years of existence and incorporate new features that will further help to distinguish it, Volkswagen have also provided a preview image of the Polo GTI that will be officially revealed in June. It is likely that without the threat of a global pandemic, the image would have been shown at the company’s GTI weekend at Lake Worthersee in Austria, which would have lasted from the 12th to the 15th of May, although this had to be cancelled.
The GTI insignia connotes enhanced performance and the new Polo GTI’s design has clearly been refined and conditioned with the explicit purpose of achieving this as a result of its generally sharper and more aggressive appearance. However, the image revealed was only a sketch and may not be identical to the final product, though Volkswagen claims that the vehicle will boast “exceptional driving dynamics in combination with everyday usability”, which implies that, aside from being oriented around performance, the Polo GTI will also espouse more pragmatic characteristics.

Moreover, the Polo GTI will be available as standard with headlights utilising LED matrix technology (which Volkswagen refers to as IQ), as well as level 2 semi-autonomous capabilities that amalgamate lane-keeping assistance and adaptive cruise control, and Travel Assist, whereas, only the more expensive variants of the new Golf will come equipped with these. Elements from the Volkswagen Golf will also be transferred to the Polo GTI, which includes sliders that are used to regulate climate control and are touch sensitive, and an MIB3 infotainment touchscreen.

Specifications regarding the powertrain, fuel economy, top speed, horsepower, and acceleration will be divulged in June when the vehicle is unveiled to the public, even though it is possible to estimate roughly what the capabilities of the new Polo GTI will be considering that its predecessor possessed a 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine that produced a total of 200 brake horsepower and came with a dual-clutch automatic gearbox. It is likely that the first models will arrive in the UK by the end of the year and bear a price tag slightly exceeding the £24,005 that the standard Polo will cost.
