VOLKSWAGEN claims the Polo GTi uses 6.5L/100km of Premium Unleaded Petrol in the combined city and highway cycle while putting out 150g of CO2. It has a 40L fuel tank, meaning it should be able to travel 615km per full tank.

The Polo GTi comes standard with 215/40 R18 front tyres and 215/40 R18 rear tyres. It requires a service every 12 months or 15,000 km, whichever comes first.

The 2022 Volkswagen Polo GTi has a 127mm ground clearance with a 1200kg braked and 690kg unbraked towing capacity.

The VIN number can be found on the Driver Side Inner Guard and the compliance plate is located on the RH Door Apert. on Lower B-Pill. An example VIN number would be similar to WVWZZZAWZ#*123456.

 2022 Volkswagen Polo GTI review

More tech, sharper looks, and a steeper price headline changes to the Polo GTI for 2022. Does it have what it takes to stand out alongside the i20 N and Fiesta ST?
