Nurburgring, 14. May 2010 – The GTI logo has also lost nothing about 30 years after starting for many fans of sporty cars. With its 1194 kg, the new Polo GTI is scarce 400 kg heavier than the first Golf GTI, but has also added 70 hp to performance. In the driving report, the little Wolfsburger should show his sporting genes.
Sport seats with karo pattern
The most obvious changes of the Polo GTI to the frosted model are a red-rimmed killer grill, light metal roller in classic funf-hole design and a defensive tailgate with diffuser optics. There are air intake with honeycomb structure, side skirts, roof spoilers and a chromed double tailpipe. For a striking appearance, the LED daytime running lights, which are only available in combination with the optional xenon headlights. The interior has refined VW with details such as the steering wheel flattened below, pedals made of aluminum. The sports seat with karo patterns offer good side stop. Red contrast seam and trim in chromoptics and black glossy veneering on the dashboard should increase the interior additionally.
Compressor and turbocharger
The process brought it to 150 hp, in the "Cup Edition" was the old Polo GTI already with 180 hp. But during a 1.8-liter turbomotor under the hood SAB, must now take 1.4 liter displacement with charging. A compressor ensures low speeds for printing, from 3500 revolutions, this task takes over a turbocharger. The maximum torque of the TSI engine is between 2000 and 4500 rpm at 250 nm. That makes the small machine tremendously strong.
