New Vw Polo GTI coming with a 200 hp turbocharged 4-cylinder engine

Article by Christian A., on August 25, 2010

Volkswagen is planning to reveal its new Polo GTI by next spring after several testing driven at the Nurburgring circuit. The new model, which will probably get also a five door sister, is powered by a 1.4-liter supercharged and turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, capable of 200 hp. The 3-door GTI will be available in two versions at choice, either with a 6-speed stick-shift or with a 7-speed DSG gearbox.

The company's officials claim that they have put it all in order to keep traction in a small but very powerful front-drive car. For this they developed an electronically controlled "limited slip differential" system, which lightens the wheel spin due to the use of special applications of the front brakes.

In terms of exterior design the new GTI will be upgraded, visible modifications will be seen at the front grille and spoilers.

In this range VW intends to launch other new Polo models, among which we can confirm the mini SUV named Cross Polo, an estate and a convertible one. In performance terms, VW engineers have worked hard to extract up to 280 hp from the Polo's diminutive 1.4-liter twin-charge engine.

The final plans for these other versions, beside the steering and traction touches, are to insert them in a free-frills, low-volume 150 hp Polo Cup.
