For the most powerful and sporty version of the range, Volkswagen has decided to withdraw the 1.8 TSI engine of the past generation, and for the new Volkswagen Polo GTI bets on a 2.0 TSI engine capable of generating a power of 200 hp, far exceeding the 192 CV of the previous engine. Although the actual performance of this new 2.0 TSI engine is not yet known, it is logical to think that it will exceed 1.8 TSI, which will improve the 6.7 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km / h and the maximum speed of 236 km / H.

Although the majority of brands seem to have decided to eliminate the manual transmission of sports cars, the new Volkswagen Polo GTI makes available the option of equipping a manual gearbox or the DSG 7-speed automatic transmission.

Articulated on the new platform MQB A0, the car has the so-called “Sports Select chassis” that equips a lowered suspension in 15 mm with respect to the conventional Polo.  Presumably, this suspension will be accompanied by better brakes, a reinforced chassis and a new taring for the steering that increase its rigidity, improve the turn by the curve and make the direction more direct and immersive.
