VW Polo GTI: Floor impressions from Geneva Motor Show


Great floor impressions here of the VW Polo GTI from the Geneva Motor Show.

Drawing a clearer line to the GTI’s of yore than it’s biggie-sized brother, the Polo GTI embodies everything we loved about the Mk1: a small footprint, supreme usability and a miserly mill packing a potent punch. In this newest iteration, said punch is provided by a 178-horsepower turbo- and supercharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder putting out an incredibly healthy 184 pound-feet of torque. Those figures aren’t too far away from what our beloved GTI produces, and the Polo comes in a few hundred pounds lighter and doesn’t skimp on the good bits (top notch interior and the XDS differential).
