Volkswagen Tuning

Volkswagen Polo by ABT Sportsline

ABT Sportsline released a special tuning kit for the Volkswagen Polo.

This package brings both styling and performance tweaks and comes to celebrate 40 years of the model in the market. The exterior gets refreshed thanks to the new rear skirt, 18-inch alloy wheels with 215/35 R18 tires, a revised dual-pipe exhaust and a new roof-mounted spoiler.

These upgrades are offered on top of the standard features available on the VW Polo GTI, the model that ABT chose as a starting one. Under the hood sits a 1.8-liter TSI engine producing 230 horsepower and 360 Nm of torque, a decent boost from the stock 192 hp and 320 Nm.

You should expect the 0-100 km/h acceleration to be possible in under 6,7 seconds, the time that the standard model needs. We also guess that the stock 236 km/h top speed got improved but for now, ABT was scarce with these details.

Other upgrades of the Volkswagen Polo by ABT include new floor mats and a retuned suspension that bring the car closer to the ground. The front end sits now 25mm closer to the ground while the rear is even lower at 30mm. Pricing and availability details should be released soon.
