2009 Vw Polo GTI: first details revealed

Volkswagen has a brand new Polo coming this year, and is preparing the wildest, quickest and most athletic model ever to top the lineup. Following the MkV Golf GTI, which demonstrated VW could still create astounding performance vehicles when it opened in 2004, the Polo GTI appears ready to be a popular sales hit.

The lead vehicle will come with a host of visual belligerence. It includes all the classic GTI design cues, from the ebony black grill accented in red to the GTI emblem and deep air vents. Trim dashes incorporate tough flared curves, filled by stunning alloy rims. The appearance is rounded off by a fine roof spoiler and bodykit, and the consequence is the most characteristic Polo ever produced so far.

On the inside, the passenger compartment will experience some remarkable boosts in excellence, with the same soft-touch plastics with those in the most current MkVI Golf. However, what will truly make the new vehicle distinguish itself will be its detailing, which consists of figure-hugging sports seats, red piping and pedals in racy aluminum.

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

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.
