1. Volkswagen Polo GTI – 50% of the total votes

The Volkswagen Polo GTI’s popularity in South Africa is as clear as day and it received a whopping 50% of the total vote. (See main pic)

The new Polo GTI was introduced earlier this year with a 1.8-litre turbo engine that develops 141 kW and 250 Nm of torque through a DSG transmission. Volkswagen recently introduced the Polo GTI with a 6-speed manual transmission which has allowed for an increase in torque to 320Nm.

Performance for both derivatives has remained the same however, with a 0-100kph sprint time of 6.7 seconds and a top speed of 236kph.
