    • Blistering performance and a lightning-quick DSG gearbox
    • Loaded with features to its gills
    • Sleeper car looks
    View Images
  • Could be Better

    • Expensive at Rs 24 lakhs OTR
    • Looks too similar to the VW Polo
    • Design & interiors aren’t as exquisite as Mini Cooper S

GTI [2016-2019] Verdict

The Volkswagen GTI is a proper sleeper car that offers scorching performance. It comes with a stonker of an engine and the seven-speed DSG box offers lightning-quick gear-shifts. It has direct steering and the handling is superb for a hot hatch. Despite having a stiffer suspension, the setup is forgiving when it comes to road imperfections. That said, the Volkswagen GTI is expensive at around Rs 23.77 lakhs OTR and lacks the snob value that a Mini Cooper S offers. Further, the car looks too similar to the Volkswagen Polo.

GTI [2016-2019] Review

The GTI has finally graced the Indian shores. The first GTI to be brought here is the Volkswagen GTI, a souped-up 3-door version of the Volkswagen Polo. We all know that when a Volkswagen gets the GTI badge, it is focussed and fast. Now that the famed GTI badge is officially here after 40 years since its inception, the hot hatch enthusiasts will be grinning ear to ear.

The GTI has finally graced the Indian shores. The first GTI to be brought here is the Volkswagen GTI, a souped-up 3-door version of the Volkswagen Polo. We all know that when a Volkswagen gets the GTI badge, it is focussed and fast. Now that the famed GTI badge is officially here after 40 years since its inception, the hot hatch enthusiasts will be grinning ear to ear.

It is the Polo GTI which is being imported as a CBU. The headlamp shape remains the same but get integrated LED DRLs. It gets the signature GTI mesh grille and gets a new sharper bumper that sports a wide mesh air-dam with integrated fog lamps. While the profile remains same, the front doors are longer as the rear doors have been ditched. The tail is the same except for the twin pod tail pipe that stands out.

The GTI will be based on the top-spec Highline variant of the Polo. It gets manual height adjustable driver seat, electrically adjustable and folding mirrors and cruise control. The 2-DIN music system has USB, AUX and Bluetooth compatibility. The interiors are in black with a flat bottom sporty steering wheel with steering mounted audio controls. It gets a driver armrest as well as a pull-out armrest for the rear passengers. The rear seats are foldable to increase the stowage capability of the hatchback.

Well, this is the most exciting part for the enthusiasts. It gets a 1.8-litre turbocharged petrol engine from the Octavia churning out 189bhp of power and 250Nm of torque. While it gets the expected DSG automatic gearbox, enthusiasts would have loved the six-speed manual option. The Polo GTI hits the ton from standstill in just over seven seconds on the way to a top whack of over 200kmph.

The Polo GTI matches the Mini Cooper S as the most powerful hatchback and is way ahead of the 160bhp Abarth 595 Competizione. It is the only one in the reckoning to get a dual-clutch gearbox as the Mini gets a torque converter and the Abarth sports a sluggish AMT.
