The German house presented the restyling of the small compact in an ultra bad version. Aesthetic and non-aesthetic updates for the B segment car. Let's find out all the details together.
The Polo also receives the restyling update for the ultra sports version.
GTI , three letters that have always been associated with aspects of extreme sportiness of the German car manufacturer.
The new restyling has a decidedly marked look, as well as new assistance systems for assisted driving.
The headlights are connected by a light strip and the bumper area has also been designed. In the rear part, however, the LEDs play the main role and outline the entire rear light group.
The alloy wheels are wide by 17 or 18 inches and this dimension is perfect to convey a sense of sportiness in a volume like that of Polo.
Climbing into the car, we immediately notice the changes made to the steering wheel. It has been updated with a multifunction version that sits a few centimeters below the Digital cockpit. With a cross-sectional dimension of 10.25 inches, it manages to perfectly give all the necessary information to the driver.
An important novelty is definitely the infotainment with virtual sim that allows you to have a whole series of additional services. We are talking about the We Connect and We Connect Plus services, as well as voice commands and Volkswagen customized settings.
Of course, the wireless compatibility of Android auto and Apple carplay is not missing.
As for the engines, we are talking about a substantial continuation of what was previously implemented. It should be, according to what we learn, only a front-wheel drive and a 2.0 TSI engine with the DSG automatic transmission.
No information is released about the application of a manual gearbox, but all in all the DSG gearbox is definitely one of the best automatic gearboxes around. In terms of power, there should be no changes and should therefore remain at the 200 horsepower and 320 Newtonmeter of torque. The 0-100 km / h acceleration is just 6.7 seconds with a top speed of 237 km / h.
To allow this, even the sporty appearance lowered by 15 millimeters.
The car is available in 5 colors namely black, gray, red, white and blue.
Volkswagen wanted to give that extra something even in the adas driving assistants. For the first time, the Adas IQ Drive Travel assist package is available. In this way it is possible to have the adaptive cruise control and the lane maintenance system active from 0 up to 210 km / h.
Here is how Volkswagen therefore proposes something ultra classic with a decidedly very sporty declination. Presented with the white color, it knows perfectly well to be right without overdoing it.
Now with the taut lines present in practically every single car, this new Polo GTI almost becomes homogeneous compared to many other cars. However, the extreme power inside the bonnet is something truly unique and typical of the Volkswagen GTIs.
