The new 2018 Volkswagen Polo GTI is great refreshment from the last model made in 2009 and shown at Geneva Auto Show that year. It is not only about the boring design which everybody used to see, it is continued the old model’s replacements with new ones, where Polo had waited to the last minute. As we saw on spy photos, new Polo has a new design, many modernized details, chrome, and aluminum on wheels and bumpers, but that is not all. The new Polo is three-row SUV now, meaning longer wheelbase and changed platform.
Spy photos have not shown much but have shown enough for the conclusion that 2018 Volkswagen Polo GTI is much longer and wider car than before. That is pretty much thanks to the new MQB platform, currently used on new Golf, too. It also includes a third row inside of the car and bigger ends and bumpers. Looking the spy photos we could see the same rounded front end, but longer than on other Volkswagen new cars, lower and wider bumpers and sunroof. The rear end has similar design and shape as on last models, meaning slightly rounded rear end, flat truck door and maybe too high truck door compared to the predecessor. Sporty interested viewers will notice double chrome exhaust and almost flat sides of the car.
Except the fact that 2018 Volkswagen Polo GTI could be a three-row SUV, we cannot say much else about the interior design and comfort. It is known that Polo has always been in the line with the cars with enough space for grown passengers, but not much space for larger families and other passengers. That is why we should not expect much more in new Polo; even the first purpose is changed. One thing is sure, however, and that is very rich equipment and technology.
The base model of 2018 Volkswagen Polo GTI should have a 1.0-liter 3-inline turbocharged engine, but that is not the only option for this car. It is more likely that Polo will represent to the market with the 189 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque, made in the already used 1.8-liter 4-inline engine. The market will be pleased also with the completely new electric engine which does not produce harmful gas.
