Gran Turismo Injection. For two decades now, the Polo GTI has been in the GTI range along with the Golf GTI. In 2018, Volkswagen has GTI models in the product ranges of three model series: up!, Polo and Golf. We got a chance to drive the Volkswagen GTI range in Malaga, Spain and here are the images from the drive.
