2021 Volkswagen Polo GTI facelift: Improved looks, same 2L turbo

The Volkswagen Polo GTI has been given the same facelift as the rest of the city hatch range, and has a carry over engine.

Like other Polos, the GTI has funkier headlamps and taillights, and a generally sportier design. Unique features include a red strip for the headlights and grille, and 15mm (0.6″) lower suspension.

The interior is improved with new steering wheel, bigger touchscreens and revised trim.

Under the hood, the Polo GTI still has a 2L turbo I4 from the Mark VII Golf with 147kW (197hp), DSG, and a 0-100km/h in 6.7s.
