With the Volkswagen Golf V GTI setting such a high performance benchmark, VW has decided to take no prisoners with the development of their new Polo GTI destined for release in 2010. Looking a lot like the the new Golf VI, the quickest Polo in history has all the classical GTI design cues to make it an instant hit with the Wolfberg faithful. Rippling wheel arches, ribbons of red piping and a menacing black grille give it oodles of street presence, while a powerful 1.4TSI engine ensures both snappy and economical performance. Turbo and supercharged this 133 kW lump is good for 0-100 in seven seconds and produces a mere 150g/km in the emissions department. Utilising the capable chassis found on the current SEAT Ibiza, the new Polo GTI also promises dynamic handling thanks to beefed-up anti-roll bars, stiffer springs and an advanced traction control system. Let’s hope it’s as good as it sounds because this baby VW will face some serious competition from the new Ford Fiesta ST. Let the battle commence…

Hi Sereti. Yes, indeed, the old Polo will and is in the process of being phased out.
old polo will not be phased out, it will be on the market
I’m not a Polo Fan, but this one – is beautifulO!!!!!!!! And I just love it.
mmmmmm,yaammm,Am inLove with this Car…
This looks more like a concept. These photos were around since the models that were deemed to be the 2010 Polo’s were published, of which the released ones were a bit different.
Hi TeeZeR. Yes, these are concept pics but going on what the new Polo looks like, they’re probably quite an accurate representation of what the actual GTI will look like.
Cool Thomas. I’ve just bought my woman a Polo 1.4 comfortline, nice car indeed, i really love the interior. Amazingly enough, it has almost all the features that the 1.6 has, and it’s worth mentioning that these are standard. Never liked Polos, but that one stole my heart. I had an option to go for a fiesta, clio, mazda 2 and corsa. I dunno…we just loved it. Nice!
yeses this one is hoohoohot!!! i love it.gone for test drive
Is it going to be 3 doors, when is the realease date

How much a person is supposed to earn in order to buy a new polo GTI. Im planning to buy a car June next year please advise.
The polo GTI its wow in terms of performance and its exterior look. For me to get is not the matter of how much must you earn, if you want it, go for it.
The new Polo Gti is worth waiting for… I wanted to buy Cross Polo but since seeing this GTI, makes me change my mind…
anyones know the exact lauch date yet?
What a very good car. I hope its performance doesn’t disappoint me. I’ll add to my list of “my cars to be”. Its a good choice.
When is the launch date?
Not sure if I like it or not, maybe it will grow on me, performance looks good tho.
Anyone who knows the exact lauch date yet?
I had a 2006 Polo GTI, loved the car but sadly it just caught fire last weekend…will not mind getting the new Polo GTI.
I TRIED EVERY DEALERSHIP IN GAUTENG & NOBODY CAN TELL ME WHEN IS THE GTI COMING TO SA THAT IS SO FRUSTRATING
When the new Polo GTI came out in 2010, I was so glad that our local bank had a promotion on certain type of loans, which includes car loans. I managed to secure a car loan that has a good interest rate, and the bank approved it quite fast. I have been driving Polo GTI since then, and I am so glad that I purchased it.
