There's bad news for those who have been planning to purchase (or get onto the long waiting list) a Volkswagen Polo GTI (reviewed
Nov 2011). We recently heard that the latest shipments of VW's compact pocket rocket has been held up, pending a price review. With plenty of buzz online, many were hoping that this news was merely hearsay.
Unfortunately, it seems that the prices have indeed been updated on Volkswagen Malaysia's website. The new pricing for the Polo GTI is now RM166,888
(3-door) and RM169,888
(5-door); an almost RM34k increase. VGM has yet to release any official statements, but based on the revised prices on their website, a price hike seems imminent.
