2018 Volkswagen Polo GTI: Redesign Details

As for the exterior changes, well, we must say that despite the camouflage hides the tiniest details, we can still see what the carmaker tries to build. The supermini will definitely feature more aggressive bodywork, which is so evident due front-end styling, as well as the shorter overhangs at the front and rear that make it more dynamic. Also, we can notice that the front appears to be widened and additionally lowered, while the short C-pillar gives the car more sporty spirit. In addition to the appealing bodywork, the 2018 Polo GTI sports really huge18-inch alloy wheels, which really stand out from the overall design. Around back, the hot hatch is showing a new chrome dual exhaust tip setup and a bold rear bumper.

The 2018 VW Polo GTI will have shorter front and rear overhangs, but it will get a longer wheelbase, so the interior space should be notably larger. The cabin will also feature a top-notch styling with sports seats and a really huge touchscreen display.

Engine and Platform Changes

The amazing hatchback will ride on the flexible MQB platform, which will shave some serious weight. It will adopt the same 1.8-liter inline-4 engine as the current model, but in place of today’s 189 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque, the next-gen Polo GTI will deliver around 200 horses. You will be able to choose between the manual and automatic gearbox, yet you won’t find any three-door model, because the carmaker decided to introduce just the five-door layout this time. As for the regular 2018 Volkseagen Polo, it will offer a new 1.0-liter three-cylinder and 1.4- four-pot mills.
