Is it weird that I actually like the standard 2018 polo more than the GTI/R-Line/Beats models?
Also does anyone else think it actually looks typically French?

The difference between the normal Polo and the R-Line, at least up front, is'nt so big.
The first thing that came to me when viewing the rear was 'BMW 1-series'.
From the side it looks like a Golf on 90%

Here’s a couple of YouTube videos of the Polo GTI at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show; one in Flash Red and the other in Pure White.

All the press pictures of the GTI I’d seen up to now have been of a Flash Red model, so it’s good to see a Pure White one. Not keen on the red trim on the dash in the Pure White one though, I would choose the grey dash trim that’s in the Flash Red car.

Yes, I’m sure :lol:. IMO the grey dash panel looks quite tasteful, but the red one is a bit too much for me. Full marks to VW for being a bit more adventurous though, as they’re usually pretty conservative with their paint and trim colours.
