Any small car that can do 60 in under 7 seconds is quick, and considering how affordable they all are, it's a good time to be a speedfreak

This is Volkswagen's subcompact hatchback, not sold in U.S., the smallest VWs we get over here are the Golf, Beetle, and Eos.

I have the 1.4 TSI Polo GTI and a mark VI Golf 1.4 Tsi with sports pack. The polo is much faster accelerating, more responsive in the mis range and the engine is about 5 times as loud. The Golf feels more stable and assured- you notice the golf's extra width. The polo feels a bit jumpy by comparison - assisted by rock hard suspension which translates everything (which I like). I love the Polo gti. Its every bit the hot hatch/go cart I ever wanted.

i own a polo(7 DSG-180hp) gti and an opel corsa opc(192hp)..after a lot of testing here are the results:
polo gti: 0-100 -> 7,0 sec
0-200 -> 32,1sec
corsa opc:0-100 -> 7,05 sec
0-200 -> 33,4 sec
corsa opc wants 2,5 more sec for the 80-120.. my opinion is that polo is better not only because is faster but it is more safe and economic..

I don\'t know why they leave steering wheel in that Polo GTI. They put ESP that you can\'t turn OFF, they put DSG gearbox in it, they take all joy of driving hothatch. So if you feel like co-driver when driving, they can also take steering wheel and then you can sleep while driving.

@inline6rules it does..example cars with RWD and engine in the back have better start than RWD cars with engine located in the front.EXAMPLE:PORSCHE 911 vs Corvette Z06

@1.4TSI But not in Polo GTi, Ibiza Cupra and Fabia RS. Get YOUR facts right. ;)

@vtxracer, 7sp DSG does have launch control, so get your facts right.

@golf3diesel
6.8 s is tested. Why it can\'t be true? It has a DSG transmission so the gearchanges are very fast. The Corrado VR6 ( http://www.fastestlaps.com/car_VW_Corrado_VR6.html ) which has 190 PS (not 194) has a 5 speed manual. The Corrado VR6 is a 1992 car, this is a 2010 car. During nearly 20 years a lot of thing improved (e.g. tyres) which also count. The Polo has twincharger so the torque curve is also better. 6.8 s 0-100 km/h is true.

Since when heavy engine in the front mean better traction?

golf3diesel  7 years ago  

6.8 is to great to be true..remember what\'s on the speedo is not real speed...official :7.2(6.9 in other sources) 0-100 Corrado VR6 which has 40 kgs more and has 194 hp...and better traction do to the heavy engine in the front...

the polo gti will do subseven seconds given the fact that its lighter and features a 7 speed dsg with launch control and double clutch on top of the range gti limited editions. so expect to be amazed


User avatar

vtxracer  7 years ago  

I agree with Georg. There are videos on youtube showing FRs doing 0-100 in 6,9 and cupras in 6,6-6,7. Even my fr can do 0-100 in about 7 sec (thanks to dsg). So the new polo which is even sportier will be able to do 0-100 way under 7 (even if it does not have LC)

The debate here concerns straight-line speed, right? One would have thought the real-life concern is whether the front-drive Polo can put down all that power over wet/dry twisties - stability-control not withstanding - as well as the 4WD Golf R.

Georg  7 years ago  

for all the self calling experts claming the Polo can´t do under 7sec.. the Seat Ibiza Cupra 1.4TSI with exactly the same chassie, same engine, same hp and torque and same 7speed DSG tranny same topspeed did in the first car magazine test a 6.7s 0-100km/h ... 6.9s is a carefull typicall VW factory claim .. most likely in good conditions the car will be quicker 0-100km/h.

hey guys...why bother with a polo gti??? why buy the opel corsa sport?the 1600 turbo,sure the power is less but i feel that the corsa sport is a better buy! just upgraded from the current polo gti and i could not have made a better choice.

I just drove a demo car (i work for vw)in germany. It behaves very similar to a gold GTI and very fun to drive. From what i can remember it did not have launch control (we tested on 1/4 mile drag) but the car was not yet completed. (will install other ECU) Possibly it will have Launch control.
P.S. Don't be expecting the car before 05/2010. (minor problems)
