After the arrival of the Volkswagen Polo GTI, the range could be expanded to include Polo GT and Polo GTD models. The Polo GTI model is equipped with a 1.4-litre TSI engine with 180 hp, and the other possible models could get similar power increases and new engines designed to offer a broader and more attractive range.
The Polo GT could receive the 1.4 TSI engine with 150 hp and the Volkswagen DSG gearbox, in a move that would copy the Seat Ibiza line-up, which has both FR and Cupra offerings. The Polo GTD rather, could be equipped with a 1.6-litre engine with 130 hp. According to reports, the launch date could be sometime at the end of 2011, so it’s still early to say whether these models will happen, and if so exactly what their technical details will be.

After the debut of the Golf R at Frankfurt, the Volkswagen Polo range will soon expand to include the GTI, GTD and R versions. The Polo GTI will be the first to debut with a 1.4-litre TSI engine at 170 hp. It’s the same unit as that of the Seat Ibiza Cupra, although it won’t be as powerful.
The Polo R will appear on the market later and will also be equipped with the 1.4 TSI but with a powerstep to 190 hp. A Seat Ibiza twin version should also be produced, called the Cupra R, with 10 hp more.
Finally according to Autocar, a Polo GTD could be in the works, providing the sporty looks and performance of a GTI, but with the lower fuel consumption and emissions of a diesel model. At the moment it’s purely hypothetical as the success of the 1.6-litre TDI will be used as a benchmark for any future Polo GTD.
