2015 VW Polo GTI will ditch the 1.4 engine in favor of a 1.8-liter TSI

Two days ago, Volkswagen introduced the 2014 Polo Facelift and announced that the new GTI version will be revealed next year. As you may know already, the current Polo GTI is powered by a 1.4-liter TSI engine that generates 180 hp. The current Polo GTI also ditched the 1.8-liter petrol engine in favor of a smaller 1.4-liter that has a combined fuel consumption of 5.9 liters per 100 kilometers, equivalent to CO2 emissions of only 139 g/km.

Although the small engines are a trend now, it appears that the 2015 Vw Polo GTI will return to the 1.8-liter petrol engine as the German manufacturer wants higher torque and power.

The 1.8 TSI engine is already used by the Golf or the Audi A3 or the Seat Leon. According to Volkswagen, the new 2015 Polo GTI will get 12 hp more than its predecessor. The engine will be offered as standard with a six-speed transmission, while the 7-speed dual clutch DSG is offered as an option.
