If you're looking for a quick and discreet supermini that brings with it the trappings of big car quality, this Volkswagen Polo GTI is well worth a look. It's finally the fun steer it always should have been.
Students of automotive history will know many of them. You know, the cars that would have been remembered far more fondly had they not been overshadowed by a far more illustrious stablemate? In the Eighties, the Audi S2 coupe had no chance whatsoever following in the footsteps of the brand's iconic Quattro coupe and the Peugeot 309 GTI might actually have been a better drive than the legend that was the 205 GTI. If you want the undisputed champ of neglected sibling syndrome though, look no further than the Volkswagen Polo GTI, apparently forever condemned to be the car people walk past in showrooms to moon over the Golf GTI. Volkswagen seems rather fed up with this state of affairs and, after many years of building warmish Polos that left British buyers somewhat underwhelmed, the gloves have finally come off. Game on.
As well as playing second fiddle to the Golf, the Polo GTI has traditionally had to give best to the Ford Fiesta ST in the supermini hot hatch class. The latest Polo GTI sets out to rectify that issue, the old 190PS 1.8-litre turbo engine being ditched in favour of a far heavier duty 200PS 2.0-litre TSI unit, a de-tuned version of the powerplant used in the Golf GTI. From there, power is delivered to the front wheels via a six-speed manual or a six-speed dual clutch DSG transmission, both options resulting in an identical sub-7.0sec sprint to 62mph. Why's that? It's because Volkswagen lets the engine deliver more torque when it's paired with the manual 'box, offsetting the slower shift times. The mechanical spec delivers lowered, stiffened suspension springs, uprated anti-roll bars and upgraded passive dampers as standard, though you can order switchable 'sport select' adaptive suspension as an option. Changes over the standard Polo include different front suspension knuckles, a stiffer torsion beam at the rear, revised suspension bushings and different axle geometries and roll centres. It all delivers a much more focused hot hatch. Those who prefer a more playful chassis and more communicative steering might still prefer the livewire Ford, but there's clearly been a lot of thought - and budget - poured into the Polo's dynamics.
The Polo GTI doesn't really go too large on extrovert styling, with much the same low-key, high quality aesthetics as the Golf. Viewed on a spec sheet, there's a lot of changes to the standard car, but the net effect in the metal is muted, discreet and classy. There's a more aggressive 'GTI Styling Pack' with uniquely-shaped front and rear bumpers and a black honeycomb front air intake. Plus some tidy 17-inch 'Parker' alloy wheels specially developed for this model. It also rides 15mm lower on its sports suspension. Drop inside and you'll find special 'Jacara cloth' seating, which is almost certainly the most extrovert aspect of the Polo GTI's entire attire. You'll notice the latest shape instrument panel that has been redesigned and your hands grip a chunkier red-stitched wheel rim. The centre console has also been given a makeover with heating and ventilation controls now easier to operate. Soft touch plastics and subtle aluminium detailing are the order of the day but the cabin is notably less austere than before. Aluminium-look pedals, black gloss instrument surrounds, red-stitched carpet mats and 'Velvet Red' decorative fascia inserts all add a more extrovert feel. There's a much bigger 355-litre boot that increases to 1,125-litres when the rear seats are folded down.
The list price of over £20,000 might seem a bit steep for a Polo but you do get a lot o equipment included. Many will want the DSG auto gearbox and with that, your Polo GTI will cost just over £21,000. There's a 'GTI+' version for another £1,500. Equipment for the standard Polo GTI runs to 17-inch wheels featuring red brake callipers, lowered sports suspension, a 'GTI' body styling pack, an XDS electronic differential lock and a 'Driving profile selection' driving modes system. A top 'GTI+' trim level further adds LED headlights, auto headlamps, rear tinted glass, keyless entry, power-folding mirrors, 'ACC' 'Adaptive Cruise Control' and the 'Active Info' instrument binnacle display. On to safety, an area where Volkswagen now claims class leadership with this model. Standard now on all Polos is a 'Front Assist' system that on the open road, scans the road ahead as you drive for potential accident hazards, warning you if one is detected and automatically braking if necessary. You get that same kind of functionality at urban speeds too, as part of a 'City Emergency Braking' system included as part of the 'Front Assist' package. This set-up also includes 'Predictive Pedestrian Protection' that specifically searches for pedestrians who might be about to step out in front of you and, if necessary, can initiate braking to avoid them.
This being Volkswagen, you'd probably be shocked were this car not challenging amongst the class best in terms of efficiency. Sure enough, even with DSG auto transmission fitted - in this case a 6-speed unit - this GTI variant manages 47.9mpg and 134g/km of CO2. A lot of that's thanks to the lighter weight of the MQB A0 platform that now underpins the latest generation version of this car. If you want to get close to the quoted figures on a egular basis, you'll need to make use of the provided 'Eco' option in the standard 'Driving profile selection', that mode able to focus all of the car's systems on maximum frugality. Plus if you've downloaded the free 'Volkswagen Connect' app that comes with this car, you'll find it includes a 'Challenges' section that sets efficiency driving targets, encouraging you to collect points and trophies, with bonus challenges to improve your scores. Start getting a bit keen with the options and you'll see those famously resilient Volkswagen residuals crumble somewhat too. Just about the only options that used buyers will pay extra for are satellite navigation and the DSG transmission, but straight away these features will add nearly £2,000 to the used car asking price.

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.
Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.
This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.
One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.
Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for
private individuals. This
is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
