2011 VW Polo GTI Car Review & Road Test Video-NRMA
One of the most awarded small cars in 2010, the Volkswagen Polo, gains
another sibling, the Polo GTI.
Consistent with current Volkswagen form, the new Polo GTI is more powerful
than its predecessor, more fuel efficient, and yet these gains are achieved
with a smaller capacity engine than that in the old model Polo GTI.
Under the bonnet of this latest Polo GTI (instead of a 1.8-litre turbo engine) resides Volkswagen's latest
generation 1.4-litre twin charge powerplant.
Twin charging the engine means supercharging and turbocharging. This maximises the potential to
wring the most power and torque. Co-incidentally it's the same size engine
used in the current Golf range but with more power.
This latest GTI has more power (132kW) and torque (250Nm) -- up 22kW and
30Nm compared with its predecessor. Importantly, it achieves this but uses
24 per cent less fuel than the old GTI at 6.1 litres per 100km.
The Polo GTI feels as though it's inherited much of the Golf GTI DNA, right
down to the 17-inch 'cookie cutter' or Denver style alloys -- the same size
as the Golf GTI.
From the front the GTI badge sits on the trademark GTI honeycomb grille
with larger air intakes incorporated in the front apron.
The Polo GTI sits 15mm lower compared with the rest of the range and a
subtle colour-keyed roof spoiler and dual chrome Exhausts set the Polo GTI apart from the rest of
the Polo models.
You can choose either a three or five- door body style. Price start from
$27,790 for the three-door version.
You can't choose different transmissions though as interestingly no manual
transmission is available. The all new Polo GTI's only gearbox choice is a
seven--speed direct shift gearbox.
Slip inside the new Polo GTI and anyone familiar with Volkswagens will feel
right at home. Surprise, surprise, it feels a lot like the Golf GTI right
down to the funky tartan pattern fabric covering the sports seats.
All major controls are well laid out and the Polo GTI gains paddle shifts
to maximise the performance potential from the seven-speed DSG.
There are detail trim changes compared with regular Polo models. The gloss
black highlights on the centre console are contrasted with brushed
aluminium air vent surrounds and internal door handles.
The contrast red stitching on the leather-wrapped steering wheel,
gear-shift lever and handbrake elevate the GTI from the standard Polo
models. And, like the rest of the range, you can't question the quality
look and feel inside with features like the audio system coming from the
Golf and Passat range.
The sports seats have extra bolstering on the seat base, and backrest, and
during our time behind the wheel (including a dash up Adelaide's
Collingrove Hillclimb circuit) they proved to be exceptionally comfortable
The key strength for any performance car is the engine and the Volkswagen
group has one of the best ranges of high tech engines - both petrol and
diesel - at its disposal. Engineers can seemingly mix and match a myriad of
combinations. Under the hood of the Polo GTI is a 1.4-litre four cylinder
twin charged engine pushing out 132kW of power with the aid of a Supercharger and turbocharger. The advantage of this combo is that
the Supercharger builds power from low
engine revs then once the engine revs reach 3200, the turbo kicks in to build power up to max revs. It
may sound complicated but in reality it works seamlessly.
Accelerating hard up the ribbon of pavement at Collingrove Hillclimb and
the diminutive engine spins up and comes on song immediately. The paddle
shifts provide lightening quick upshifts.
Apart from overcooking it into a sharp right hander I managed a respectable
The Polo has grown in size and the GTI weighs in at 1189 kilos but the
extra bulk hasn't hurt performance. The Polo GTI is 171 kilos lighter than
big brother, the Golf GTI, and interestingly achieves the same 0-100kmh
time of 6.9 seconds as the 2.0-litre GTI with less power.

2010 Volkswagen Polo TSI Start-Up and Full Vehicle Tour
Got the chance to film this Polo TSI at the VW showroom in Penang the other
day. It's a pretty nice car, very good power, the brakes are pretty strong
as well. This variant of the Polo was only recently introduced in Malaysia
in the last couple of months. It retails for RM108,888. This Polo, bearing
the name TSI like the Golf, however only makes do with a turbocharged engine, rather than both turbo and supercharged like the Golf.
P.S., Sorry if I went a little too fast in the video, it was slightly
drizzling and I didn't want to keep the salesperson waiting for too long as
I didn't know them that well yet.
