GTI 1.4-litre

Quick little Volkswagen GTI good without going the top in style.

Ewan Kennedy tests and reviews the Volswagen GTI with specs, fuel and verdict.

Volkswagen Polo GTI strong performance for a pretty price, carrying a recommended of just $27,790. On road have to be factored in, but even so, the GTI won’t be a lot over the 30 grand before it’s yours.

As is the way many new European cars, has fitted a smaller engine in the superseded Polo GTI. model had a 1.8-litre turbocharged the new model has a 1.4-litre ‘twincharger’ It has both a turbo and a supercharger.

The supercharger pumps extra into the engine at low revs, the at higher engine speeds.

some overlap between the two air to give strong torque a wide band, with the being de-clutched at 3500 when the turbocharger takes completely. Maximum power the Polo’s twincharger engine is 132 This clever engine a strong 250 Newton metres all the way 2000 to 4500 revs.

In driving you will have the sitting at peak torque all the time.

Sadly Volkswagen Australia sell you a six-speed manual of the hot Polo as it has opted to import the seven-speed DSG automated manual. we are aware the DSG equipped Polo is than the six-speed manual, we there are enough ‘real’ out there to justify bringing in manuals as well. Here’s the decision is reversed some soon.

Polo GTI is lifted in from the rest of the Polo by having blacked out honeycomb grilles, as well as black to the headlamp surrounds. There are red above and below the main A bolder front bumper in with the extended door and complements the 15 mm lower suspension.

At the rear are chromed exhaust and a diffuser look to the back Over the rear window a neatly shaped wing. The little Volkswagen GTI looks without going over the top in

This little Volkswagen rocket takes only 6.9 to get to 100 km/h from a standing The six-speed manual would increase this to the low sevens, but still excellent performance. All the so when you consider the bargain

There’s a lot more than drag racing to 100 km/h to driving enjoyable. We love the instantaneous reaction from the and the way it just keeps on producing of grunt. Overtaking is ridiculously simply click down a or two, give the right the message, and the Polo GTI leaps slower traffic is a short and distance.

Another advantage of a smaller engine is that the components are lighter, so the engine is too happy to rev harder the moment you ask it to do so.

You don’t buy a high-performance car to save but VW’s latest technology consumption and emissions. Open driving will see the Polo fuel at the rate of seven to litres per hundred kilometres. unlikely to use more than ten per hundred in normal driving.

is nicely balanced and the use of an electronic differential means the Polo can be controlled on the throttle. It turns in holds its line well and is enough to be able to use a lot of its own side of the while still taking the line through bends.

Ride comfort in the VW Polo is for a sports model riding on wheels, though some may find it too firm on rough

High-performance cars aren’t to come with low price Yet Volkswagen Polo GTI gives you the excitement for a very modest
