2015 Volkswagen Polo GTI now ready to order in the UK

Article by Christian A., on January 5, 2015

Interested customers for the latest generation Volkswagen Polo GTI can now order their own units from retailers across the United Kingdom at just £18,850 RRP OTR for the three-door manual version. To avail of the five-door version, a customer just needs to add £630 premium and another £1,245 to avail of the DSG gearbox.

It is powered by a 1.8-liter (1,798 cc) turbocharged petrol engine that provides up to 192 PS between 4,200 and 6,200 rpm (5,400-6,200 DSG). The engine can be paired with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox. When fitted with the manual gearbox, the Polo provides torque of up to 320 Nm (236 lbs ft) available between 1,450 and 4,200 rpm.

When equipped with the DSG, the Polo provides torque of up to 250 Nm (184 lbs ft) between 1,250 and 5,300 rpm. The Polo GTI could accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 6.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 146 mph. Despite this performance, it still ekes a combined fuel consumption figure of 50.4 mpg and carbon dioxide emissions of 129 g/km for the DSG (47.1 mpg and 139 g/km for the manual).

Taking on the styling cues of the Golf GTI, the Polo GTI dons new bumpers, GTI insignia, distinctive 17-inch ‘Parabolica’ alloy wheels and red radiator grille strips and honeycomb grille. It also dons a standard sports suspension, which is lowered by 10mm at the front and 15 mm at the rear.

The GTI now sports LED lights as standard at the front and a GTI roof spoiler, taillight clusters in Dark Red, the black grained diffuser and chrome dual exhaust pipes at the rear. Moving into the cabin, one can find a leather sports steering wheel with logo and red stitching harking back to the Golf GTI.

Similar touch is also applied for the the gear and handbrake levers and floor mats with red beading. Drivers and passengers can also find check design ‘Clark’ cloth seats with black bolsters. Customers can expect to have their units delivered as early as March 2015.
