When Volkswagen showed us the updated Polo, the German carmaker also promised us that a Polo GTI will follow in 2022. Well, folks, VW has now given us a glimpse of the said GTI ahead of its reveal in June later this year.

There aren’t a lot of photos to go by, but we do get to see the GTI’s slightly more aggressive-looking design compared to the standard Polo. The air intakes on the grille and the front bumper now feature a sportier pattern, and the fog lamps have been integrated seamlessly into the design as well.

The overall shape of the hatch has been retained, too, but the sketches show it sitting on massive wheels shod in very, very thin rubber.

No photos of the rear or of the interior were shown, nor were there any specs announced. What we can expect is that this will be the “sportiest model in the Polo series” with its high-torque front-wheel-drive layout and tuned sports chassis. Also, expect that this sketch might not be virtually identical to the actual hatch that will be revealed next month.

So, readers—excited for this, or would you rather stick the O.G. high-performance VW hatch, the Golf GTI?
