In terms of technology, performance, and sportiness, the compact car with the legendary acronym is speeding through the Polo segment and setting new benchmarks in its class. A powerful TSI engine and sport modified chassis specifically tailored for the Polo GTI pushes pure power at the press of the pedal. Volkswagen’s best-selling compact car has just gotten better. 

The 2022 Polo GTI  has always been the heart of the Volkswagen brand with sportiness, partnered with moderate fuel consumption and efficiency. The new Polo GTI is also Front-wheel drive like all its predecessors, with a turbo-charged, direct petrol injector swaps gear via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. A dual-injection system, direct intake-manifold fuel injection, an electronic valve-lift system on the inlet side, and an engine control unit with four core processors are highlight features of the turbo engine under the hood of the 2022 Polo GTI. The engine is known for its moderate fuel consumption levels, despite the high output. The specially tailored sports chassis for the Polo GTI has been lowered 15 millimeters and assures a high degree of driving comfort and safe neutrality.

The new IQ light-LED matrix headlights and illuminated radiator grille add a unique enhancement to the daytime running light. Volkswagen’s next generation vehicles will also come with a striking LED light strip that comes standard on all Volkswagen ID.Family models. The newly-designed rear LED lights with integrated dynamic indicators and animated brake lights, indicate a change in direction with flowing light movements. The compact sports car even has a broader and more commanding visual presence on the road thanks to the specific bumper design for GTI. An Adaptive Front Lightning System controlled by the main headlights and integrated on the side of the bumpers, has been remodified to give an even more concise lighting effect. The GTI insignia at the front of the car has a continuous red trim strip above the LED daytime running light strip, honeycomb-shaped ventilation grille, and a classic striking red GTI logo placed on the side.

Semi-automated driving will be available as an add-on for the first time on the 2022 Polo GTI. The IQ DRIVE Travel assist enables semi-automated driving by controlling the steering, braking, and acceleration. Drivers can activate the system with the Travel Assist button in the remodified, leather, multifunctional, sport steering wheel. The driver must maintain their hands on the steering wheel at all times  while using the system. Various new infotainment systems are connected to many services online to ensure state-of-the-art connectivity in the new Polo GTI.

Volkswagen has ensured to make outstanding driving pleasure in the compact segment a synonymous code, since the original GTI in 1976. The Polo has received the acronym GTI since 1998. The latest generation seamlessly continues to set new benchmarks for compact cars and continues the GTI Tradition.
