New Polo GTI to be unveiled at Tokyo Motor Show

Volkswagen is to unveil its new Polo GTI at the 39th Tokyo Motor Show which begins on October 19.

The new Polo will be powered by the 1.8-litre 148bhp turbo-charged petrol engine already seen in other Volkswagen cars. It powers a 0-62mph time of 8.2-seconds and a top speed of 134mph.

Exterior specification includes 16-inch alloy wheels, bright red brake calipers, visible polished exhaust tail pipes, rear spoiler, a 15mm lower stance on sports suspension and the GTI logo on a honeycomb style-grille.

On the inside, sports seats and aluminium detailing sit alongside black and red stitched seat belts and a three-spoke leather covered steering wheel.

Pricing, performance and detailed UK specification will be announced closer to its January 2006 launch.
