With the new Polo GTI the development team was able to reduce combined fuel consumption to 5.9 l/100 km. That is equivalent to CO2 emissions of just 139 g/km. By comparison: Its direct predecessor consumed 7.9 litres per 100 kilometres (equivalent to 188 g/km CO2). This means that the new car is 25 percent more fuel efficient.
The new Volkswagen accelerates to 100 km/h in just 6.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 229 km/h. The Polo GTI also comes equipped with the standard ESP electronic stabilisation programme including Hill Climb Assist, electro-hydraulic power steering, bi-xenon headlights with cornering lights, LED daytime running lights and corner marker lights as well as a panoramic tilt/slide sunroof and 17-inch alloy wheels in “Denver” design.
