200 HP

The 200 most important reasons why you need a Polo GTI  

With a huge 147 kW, the engine proudly hits the 200 HP mark. That’s enough to accelerate the compact athlete from 0 to 100 in 6.7 seconds. What's more, the TSI engine achieves an unprecedented level of tractive power, even at low engine speeds. Driving doesn’t get more fun than this – and we haven't even come to the XDS differential lock yet.

A GTI can be recognised from afar - thanks to its characteristic GTI features, combined with its progressive design. The latter includes the red trim, honeycomb-shaped ventilation grille, red brake calipers and dynamic alloy wheels
