Is their something wrong with Polo GTI, yes it misses Electronic OVRMs, rear camera, Automatic headlamp and vipers, front arm rest, keyless entry, start-stop button, navigation. For the amount you are paying above features are must, said that this is a drivers car, do not buy this thinking it is a regular hatch, buy this if you really mean to drive it like a sports car.

My opinion this car will be bought only those few who really love to drive and love power the most, not by someone who is just looking for a regular hatch.
