2019 VW Polo GTI
2019 VW Polo GTI welcome to vwsuvmodels.com now you can find expert reviews for the latest models Volkswagen SUVs from U.S. in our site. Volkswagen has announced price and technical specifications for the 2018 Polo GTI, and the double-clutch Heißluke starts at $ 30,990 before the travel costs in August. The hot polo performance comes with a turbo charged 2.0-liter petrol engine with 147 kW on the front wheels and a difficult electronic front differential to 320 nm. This is not just the same amount of power as the Mark 5 Golf GTI, but 40nm more torque. Delicious.
There will be no handbooks as we confirmed last week. Instead, the receivers receive a six-speed double-clutch transmission as the only option. Standard equipment includes adaptive sports suspension, automatic emergency braking and pedestrian monitoring at city speed, tire pressure warning, reverse cam, keyless entry, key operation, automatic headlamp and rain detection.
Rather. But in a particularly German, very Volkswagen style – that is, if you are hoping for a touch of machine that resembles the old Fiesta St, then you may be a bit disappointed. (…))
The emphasis here seems to be on precision. There is a complete nerd-out to the specifics below, but basically there are a lot of very detailed technical changes, combined with a fundamentally sized base platform and a wobble great (according to modern standards) 2.0- Liter turbo gasoline that results in a GTI that keeps the maturity and comfort level of the new polo while almost the entire gap is removed.
The steering would never be described as alive in the hands, but there is an immediate reaction with none of the dead meanness, which one often gets with electrical help, which helps to make direction changes crisp and punk. This transition into piles of smoothly predictable grip in fast-curving curves – although they keep the xds busy in tighter corners when they are too heavy footed – and a clear impression that this is a chassis that works as one, not a Separate front and stern forced into the rumbling of cooperation.
Inside, while the ‘Clark’ sits on sports seats trimmed in tartan trim, the driver also supports a heavily cut steering wheel equipped with paddle shifters.
The 8.0-inch “Composition Media” infotainment system is standard with two USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity, a smartphone mirror and a six-speaker stereo. There are several options starting with the $ 1400 driver help package. Adaptive cruise control adds blind spot monitoring, rear-shot traffic alerts, parking assistant and Volkswagen’s proactive passenger protection system.
Sound & Vision Pack $ 1900 offers an active information display for the driver, a higher-end Discover-Media navigation system and a 300-watt sound system. At the end of the $ 3900 luxury package, it offers ‘art steps’ flooring, heated front seats, LED headlamps and daytime running lights, 18-inch ‘Brescia’ light alloy wheels (17-inch standard), panoramic sunshades and colorful reverse paint. The mother of metallic or pearl color is a $ 500 option in the whole product range.
The engine inserts a large heart into the equation, the full 236lb ft, which is available from 1500U/min and hangs around until it passes to the 197bhp of the Polo GTI at 4400u/min – which then goes on until 6000U/min. The DSG transmission will automatically glue you to the next gear immediately thereafter, no matter which setting you use, so that the 6.7 sec 0-62mph time is easily repeatable as long as you have enough tires and surface traction to keep all of that muscle at bay.
See above point about tight turns, and be prepared to be patient when you drive the GTI in moisture. The 2.0 engine could sound more exciting, but we suspect that inoffensive Parpy is better for most buyers in 2018 than loud.
Tested with the optional sport-select suspension, which offers fixed comfort and sport settings with double valve dampers (like, but not as extreme as the Ford Focus RS), the Polo GTI will be happy to be supple to the extent that long distances are not afraid. But press the button to engage the firmer sport mode, and immediately everything comes into a sharper focus. It is judged very nicely.
