The new Volkswagen Polo GTI 2010 - most people don't need more car than this
Volkswagen will present its brand new Volkswagen Polo GTI at the coming Geneva Auto Show. I have talked about the Polo before and summarized that it's so much better than the daily drivers we had in the past while consuming minimal amounts of gasoline. Now, the new GTI is different. It's really fast, going from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.9 secs and reaching a top speed of 229 km/h. And all of this with a fuel consumption of exactly 6 liters/100 km, pushing 139 gr CO2 into the atmosphere. Wow! This is the performance of good going sportscar in the 80ies while offering space for five people (with some compromises) and being almost a blessing for our earth. And it comes with all the goodies that you would expect and is as safe as you can get today.
