Sixth generation of Polo: Along comes the GTI

The new Polo GTI: A modern sports car in the best tradition

In April Volkswagen presented the latest sixth generation of Polo, and along comes the sportiest version - the new Polo GTI.

The first VW Polo GTI arrived in 1998 after the Golf and Scirocco, and this latest incorporation continues the GTI tradition setting a new benchmark for compact cars. The powerful TSI engine brings a unique sports chassis specific to the Polo GTI, and also allows semi-automated driving as an option for the first time. 

The semi-automated driving option is known as IQ.DRIVE Travel Assist, which can take over the steering, braking, and accelerating of the new Polo GTI. It can also call upon Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Assist which can be activated by the Travel Assist button in the multifunctional, leather sports steering wheel. The driver's hands must remain on the steering wheel whilst using the system.

An Online Connectivity Unit with an integrated eSIM makes it possible to use online services from We Connect (prepared for a limited time) and We Connect Plus (prepared for free use in Europe for 1 or 3 years). The Polo GTI brings features including App-Connect Wireless for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto wireless, as well as the Digital Cockpit Pro with a screen measuring 10.25 inches.

Sportiness alongside efficiency and moderate consumption
The new Polo GTI is a front-wheel drive, turbo-charged with gear changes via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (DSG) as standard. It also comes with the new IQ.Light as standard, which includes LED matrix headlights and an illuminated radiator grille bar to distinctively enhance the daytime running light.
Newly-designed LED rear lights with animated brake lights and integrated dynamic indicators are a few of the visual changes of the new Polo GTI, as well as a new GTI-specific bumper giving the sports car an even more visual presence on the roads.
The 2021 Polo GTI is available in five colours: Deep Black Pearl Effect, Smoke Grey Metallic, Kings Red Metallic, Pure White Uni, and Reef Blue Metallic. The Roof Pack is also an available option to combine with the last three colours listed above. It comes with 17-inch alloy wheels as standard with an optional upgrade of 18-inch alloys.
We're hoping to see the new Polo GTI at the end of this year! Stay in touch for the latest news and model arrivals on our social channels:

Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited are Appointed Representatives of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 571076). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of finance providers and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time.
