  • Joshua Dowling road tests and reviews the new Volkswagen Polo GTI at its Australian launch.

    Latest VW Polo GTI hits UK roads - can it beat the Ford Fiesta ST in the hot supermini class?.

    Dave heads to Spain to drive the new Volkswagen Polo GTI on road and on track.

    Further adjustability is available through the electronic stability control ESC system. Sport Select is not planned to be available — even as an option — for Australian buyers from launch. It also adds extra weight to the steering and sharpens up the throttle response, improving the noise the car makes at the same time. Impressive technology on its own, the system also proves legitimately beneficial to both vehicle dynamics and manners, whether on road or track. It entertainingly combines light-footed agility with unimpeded steering feel and one of the most neutral front-wheel-drive chassis I have ever driven.

    Volkswagen Polo GTI Review | CarAdvice

    I have since the very first time I hustled it through a favourite piece of winding road at speeds far beyond the sign-posted recommendations. It entertainingly combines light-footed agility with unimpeded steering feel and one of the most neutral front-wheel-drive chassis I have ever driven. Here for a good time not a long time, we only have around three laps to party with the Volkswagen Polo GTI and its new kW turbocharged 1.

    Rolling out of pit lane, our first taste of the heavily Golf-influenced Polo GTI is in a seven-speed dual-clutch-equipped three-door. My personal body style preference, local buyers will continue to be restricted to the five-door only once the baby hot-hatch arrives in the second quarter next year. Speaking of being restricted, while much excitement followed confirmation that, after nine years, a manual gearbox would return as the standard transmission on the Polo GTI, all is not quite as it seems….

    The first Polo GTI to be offered with two transmissions, the new fourth-generation — based on the freshly updated Mk5 Polo platform — sees significant variations between the pair. With Nm on tap between rpm, the manual also gets a 70Nm peak torque boost over both its predecessor and its new DSG equivalent.

    Regardless of transmission though, the kg kg auto GTI claims a 6. Impressive technology on its own, the system also proves legitimately beneficial to both vehicle dynamics and manners, whether on road or track.

    Sport Select is not planned to be available — even as an option — for Australian buyers from launch. Intended to further enhance handling performance, it also features a thicker up 1mm to 19mm front anti-roll bar than the outgoing GTI and revised front anti-roll bar linkages and torsion-beam bushings. Trading the track for a dash along some public Spanish roads, we get the keys to a manual GTI and scarper.

    Knowing the heavily reworked — and 5. When I say heavily reworked, we mean it. Key engine revisions comprise the addition of dual injection a combination of direct and manifold injection , a water-cooled integrated exhaust manifold, a thin-walled crankcase down from 3.

    Mixing highway with tight and twisty rural back roads, our circakm run reveals several important factors. The trip computer on the new-look read: Golf GTI-style instrument cluster also ends the drive loop displaying an average fuel figure of 9. Albeit brief, our concluding stint in the GTI in question — the only car we drove not fitted with adjustable dampers — exposes the crux of the story.

    Intended to be a balance between ride comfort and dynamic sporting ability, the standard suspension is strongly skewed towards the latter. Stiff and busy enough to make you aware of every bump, divot or minor imperfection beneath you, an agitated and almost constantly bobbing body suggests the firm setup is an imperfect match of tight damping with a too-soft spring. How the standard sports suspension handles Australian roads will be a key factor once it arrives, along with final pricing and equipment specification — the latter expected to include an upgraded touchscreen infotainment unit with satellite navigation as well as parking sensors, a rear-view camera, LED headlights and a range of safety technologies.

    And, perhaps more importantly, how Volkswagen Australia handles the public when, or if, they arise…. Visit our Volkswagen Showroom. Volkswagen Polo GTI manual confirmed …. Owner Review 25th Aug In The News News 17th Sep Also In The Range. Review 30th Apr Owner Review 25th Sep
