Volkswagen Polo GTI Design

The Polo has been a smart looking hatchback and the GT TSI version looks the same save for some minor changes. There is a prominent GT badge on the front grille, GT TSI sticker work on the C pillar and GT and TSI badge on the rear on either side. The alloy wheel design is slightly different though we would have loved to see this hot baby with the SR kit that the Polo SR comes with and/or a different contrast color for the roof for that sporty touch! It comes in three colour choices candy white, flash Red and deep black.

It has a sedan like ride quality and gives you a feeling of a luxury car and ride quality is that of a sedan from a higher price range. It absorbs all the bumps, potholes and remains steady and comfortable for everyone in the car.The retuned suspension system comes to rescue of the Polo GTI, as far as the handling is concerned. However, the steering could have been made a bit more responsive. It performs amazingly with brisk acceleration

Volkswagen Polo GTI Conclusion

Considering the Volkswagen Polo GTI price in India, it is purely made for hardcore high-adrenaline junkies and it has very less to do with a common car buyer. The 3-door high-performance hatch is sold as limited edition in India with just 99 units on sale, and to be honest, this strategy could work wonders for the company and soon the whole stock might be sold out.
