No engine is larger than 2.0 liters, and the natural gas engine only puts out about 89 horsepower.

Every single Polo is available with a manual transmission, and only five offer something else.

With 197 horsepower on tap, it's a proper hot hatch, albeit a tiny one.

As you'd expect, the Polo GTI carries a whole bunch of GTI badges, as well as the ubiquitous plaid cloth seats.

If you want one in the US, tough luck -- you'll have to wait 25 years until they're eligible for import.
