“What the Press Say”
It’s based on the new MQB A0 platform, like the Seat Ibiza, the new Polo is a chunky 7cm longer, 7cm wider and 2cm taller than the old one. Its proportions, stance and aesthetic scream Golf. And so does the engine. It’s the entirely familiar 2.0-litre turbo from the Golf GTI and Golf R et al. Here it makes a nice, round 200 PS (197bhp in old money) and 236lb ft of torque, which is enough for 0-62mph in 6.7 seconds and 147mph.
Its recorded 0-60mph time of 6.7sec is a mere 0.2sec adrift of the 242bhp Performance Pack-equipped Golf GTI we’ve previously tested, and by 100mph the deficit has grown only to a solitary second.
It has different front suspension knuckles to the regular Polo, that the steering is totally different and that the anti-roll bar bushes are 350 (!) per cent stiffer. Front lateral stiffness is up by 55 per cent over the old GTI, he says, and the bespoke twist-beam rear-axle is 60 per cent stiffer. Roll angles are down 10 per cent from its predecessor, the latest Polo GTI is the most overtly sporty yet, thanks in part to its miniature Golf GTI styling. It has a raft of bespoke decor, including a red strip across its nose, a subtle but reassuringly athletic bodykit and eye-catching tartan seats.
A key feather in the new Polo GTI’s cap is its standard Sport Select suspension. It allows you, at the touch of a button, to firm up the car’s adaptive dampers to make them better suited to spirited driving. In this mode, the Polo GTI retains a reasonably comfortable ride but becomes more composed through corners and hugs the road better, especially over dips and crests.
In its latest, most convincing iteration, the Polo GTI no longer exists as a warmed-up, glorified trim level and makes a strong case for itself as a bona fide sports car. A level of performance granted by an engine shared with its illustrious Golf GTI sibling sets it on the right path, but there’s now a depth of engineering that simply wasn’t there before.
