No doubt, ABT Sportsline is the worldwide largest tuner of Volkswagen branded vehicles, and no doubt, the new VW Polo is an impressive car. If we combine these two components the result is a small sports car that makes man's heart beat faster, of course ladies will also love it.

Exterior of the refined ABT Polo exudes character, the carbon rear spoiler, rear apron insert and the double-pipe exhaust system makes it even bolder and dominant. Titan-like type Z 8x18-inch ABT Sportsline wheels emphasize the already sporty vision of the Polo. In the area of the underside of the door decals with the ABT logo show that the Polo is a pure thoroughbred from the Allgaeu sports car family.

In the performace part, the ABT tuners are offering an extra kick to all turbo engines: The 1.6 TDI is available in different output levels – starting at the series standard engine. For example with ABT POWER, 75 HP (55 kW) is converted into 90 HP (66 kW), and after ABT treatment the 90 HP engine produces 110 HP (81 kW) and the 105 HP (77 kW) diesel engine is increased to a sporty 130 HP (96 kW). The extremely economical 1.2 TSI also provides 130 HP or 96 kW (series standard: 105 HP / 77 kW). The fuel consumption values – and thereby also the CO2 emissions – remain at the level of the series engine.

If you want to add an extra amount of dynamism, ABT also offers a lowering springs which improves the Polo road experience.
