    The GTI story continues! Advance sales of the new Polo GTI started

    As an end-of-year highlight, Volkswagen is beginning advance sales of the new Polo GTI. Featuring output of 147 kW / 200 PS and details such as dual clutch gearbox (DSG), sports running gear, sports seats and 17-inch alloy wheels, the most powerful Polo in the range costs €23,950 (in Germany). The new compact sports car is a further high point in the legendary GTI story, for in this Polo the start button for the 320 Newton metre TSI engine becomes a quasi trigger for a fantastic driving experience. However this GTI too offers more than just pure dynamic handling. Performance is accompanied as ever by supreme safety and great comfort – the secret of the GTI concept's success.

    Golf Sportsvan – the update

    Perfected all-rounder The Golf Sportsvan is one of the most flexible and spacious cars in the compact class. With its elevated seating position and a rear seating system with longitudinal adjustment, the Sportsvan offers interior properties that are otherwise usually found only in a traditional van. As a result, this Golf will appeal to drivers who like to sit a little higher, who travel with children, who want flexibility for their leisure activities and who value a compact Volkswagen that offers a lot of stowage space. Now an update has sharpened the design and features of the all-rounder while, at the same time, Volkswagen has updated its drive, assistance and infotainment systems.
