Though it looks like someone left the Golf in the dryer too long, the GTI is the most powerful Polo ever with a turbo 1.8L motor producing 150-hp, 25 more than the last Polo GTI. That powerplant, says VW, should be good for reaching 62 mph in 8.2 seconds. The exterior and interior contain all the visual GTI cues we've come to expect. The price in Germany will be 18,950 Euro, or $22,992US. VW happens to be the number one automobile importer in Japan for the last five years, thus the Tokyo debut. Perhaps if U.S. consumer taste does head down the path of pint-sized vehicles we could see something like the Polo GTI here soon.
