New Volkswagen Polo GTI packs a punch

The new contract hire Volkswagen Polo GTI has arrived, and it is packed with sporty performance and technology.

This is the sixth generation of the VW Polo GTI but it's also the sportiest creation yet.

There's a sport chassis and a powerful TSI engine - both of which have been tailored specifically for the Polo GTI.

VW says this will help transform what has been a best-selling compact car into a four-door dynamic sports car.

Volkswagen Polo GTI car lease

The Volkswagen Polo GTI car lease range has a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine producing 204bhp and torque of 320Nm.

The GTI features a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and will sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 6.5 seconds - using the car's launch control feature.

The top speed for the new Polo is 149mph with the agility being delivered by the firm's XDS electronic differential lock.

The new Polo GTI takes on the likes of the excellent Ford Fiesta ST and the Hyundai i20 N with the Polo also adding torque vectoring.

Equipment for the VW Polo GTI

Standard equipment for the VW Polo GTI includes semi-automated driving so the car will take over the acceleration, braking and steering as part of its 'travel assist' system.

The system also uses adaptive cruise control and lane assist, though the driver must keep their hands on the steering wheel when the system is being used.

Volkswagen has also added a new infotainment setup which has online connectivity and access to various online services.

The infotainment system is also smartphone compatible and there's a digital instrument cluster with a 10.25-inch HD screen.

Polo offers excellent levels of handling

As with all GTIs, the new Polo offers excellent levels of handling and front wheel drive.

The chassis has been lowered by 15mm to offer better driving dynamics and improved driving comfort.

Drivers also get 17-inch alloy wheels and there's an option for 18-inch alloys.

The new Polo GTI comes in five colours with some models having the option of a contrasting black roof.

The boot size is 351 litres with the interior design featuring a titanium black trim colour and red contrast stitching - a GTI characteristic.

For many hot hatch lovers, the contract hire Volkswagen Polo GTI offers an impressive small car with lots of speed and great handling and enjoyable levels of agility - it's one of the best cars in its segment.
