2019 Volkswagen Polo GTI. Judging by the spy shots we got from our correspondents, the 2019 Volkswagen Polo GTI is going to go be longer and wider that the current version. Since it is not some old production line, it is fairly simple to change the vehicle as you go. The interior is rumored to go through the most of the changes, just like the drivetrain. The new Polo GTI will not be something to make you cry because of its beauty or the engine power. But it will be a vehicle to call your own and be proud of it if you like that kind of sports hatchback. The new 2019 Volkswagen Polo has officially been revealed – it’s the latest generation of Volkswagen’s popular small car that has sold over 14 million units globally. The car is set to go on sale in 2018, costing from £14,000.
The new 2019 Volkswagen Polo GTI. keeps the old model’s upmarket looks but looks way more up to date. Starting from the front, there are new headlights with LED daytime running lights and a chrome strip running through the middle of the grille in line with Volkswagen’s new corportate look. The strong crease running along the side helps make the car look sleeker than the slightly bulbous outgoing model. The new Polo is wider and longer than before, looking squatter as a result. Round the back, the brake lights have a ‘P’ light signature, a pronounced roof spoiler and, on high-spec models, fake exhaust tips in the bumpers. Volkswagen’s second-generation Active Info display is optional in the new 2019 Volkswagen Polo GTI., it’s the first Volkswagen to get the latest system and also the first car in the class available with a digital instrument binnacle.
It promises more intuitive operation and better graphics. Next to the virtual cockpit, is the infotainment screen that ranges from 6.5-8.0 inches in size and is encased in glass – expect the larger system to be one of the best in the class. Volkswagen’s App Connect is also available bringing MirrorLink, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. Wireless charging of your smart phone is optional via the dedicated cubby under the climate controls. The wheels of the new 2019 Volkswagen Polo GTI. have been pushed as close to the ends of the car as possible to lengthen the wheelbase and maximise space. You can expect back-seat room to be extremely impressive with space enough for two tall adults to feel comfortable. In terms of luggage room, the boot has grown from 280 litres to 351 litres without losing its practical square shape and decent amount of standard tethering points.
There is no official news about the 2019 Volkswagen Polo GTI engine. Since it is a sports variant, they could consider two different options. The first one is going to be 1.8 liters four-cylinder with 189hp and 236 pound – feet of torque. But, since this is a new platform, capable of all sorts of engines. We can expect some updates in that field. The one idea coming to the mind almost immediately is the 2.0-liter turbo four which we already got in the Golf GTI. Hell, because of the platform, we can even expect some hybrid model, why not? Sports versions, like this one, are either way going to get an engine with a good acceleration time. Some norm is 0-60 in 6.5 seconds. That demands the 2019 Volkswagen Polo GTI engine to have at least 200hp. That and the advancements of its rivals will certainly make engineers put something capable of going over that number of horses. New Fiesta has a rumored strength of 212hp under the hood, so this is neither a time nor a place to be cheap.
All the important details will be known as soon as we see the base version sometime during the next year. With all the thing we are not sure about, the 2019 Volkswagen Polo GTI release date and price is something we can’t miss. The new Polo GTI will be released in the first quarter of 2019 after the release of the standard Polo. The 2019 Volkswagen Polo GTI price range is going to start from $24,561 MSRP for the basic version. That is the estimated price, but it could oscillate, due to the euro-dollar ratio.
