As far as the first sketch is concerned, the Polo GTI will get an aggressive-looking front bumper which will wear a honeycomb pattern. Just above the horizontal LED daytime running lights is a red line that continues inside the headlight casing and the distinctive GTI logo on the grille, while at the rear there is a diffuser, a discreet spoiler and double round tailpipes.

Volkswagen promises the alloy wheels on the Polo GTI will be specially designed. The size of the alloy wheels are likely to be of 17 inches.

The sports version of the Polo is based on the newPolo hatchback and will become the premium version of the product line.It is likely to get high torque front-wheel drive and a dynamically adjusted sports chassis.In addition, it also promises better driving dynamics compared to the other Polo variants.

The interior of the Polo GTI will have some signature to make it stand apart from the regular Polo hatchback. The Polo GTI is likely to get a sporty leather steering wheel and gear selector.
