The company Volkswagen manufactures the European supermini Polo GTI. Volkswagen is best known for the VW Beetle. However, they now produce many different models. The Polo GTI was born in Germany after the Volkswagen Company began to combine their Polo model with the Golf GTI in 1975.
Discontinuation and Re-introduction of the Polo GTI
Manufacture of the Polo GTI was halted shortly after production as they found it hard to make them cheap enough for the market. From 2000 to 2002, Volkswagen re-introduced the Polo GTI under the name Mk3 Facelift Polo (6N2) GTI. This Polo GTI was available in a three or five door hatchback body style with colour options of red, silver, and black. After 2002, the company switched back to producing the VW Polo, and the production of the Polo GTI stopped once again until 2005.
Modern Day Polo GTI
The modern day Polo GTI is available in two editions: the Driver's Edition and the Wolfsburg Edition. Each is complete with a 2.0L Turbo engine delivering 200 horsepower. The Wolfsburg Edition features Laguna alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, and a golf ball shift knob. The Driver's Edition features Bi-Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, top sport seats with leather seating surfaces, and a touch screen navigation system.
