While the Edition 25 has received some unique design elements, traditional GTI cues remain. Red brake calipers come as standard, alongside matching red exterior trim strips, red GTI badges on the wings, a honeycomb design front grille and twin chrome exhaust tips. 

Inside, there are heated, premium leather sports seats as standard, with gloss black trim, red GTI lettering, wireless phone charging and a rear-view camera also coming as part of the package – adaptive IQ.Light LED matrix headlights are also included at no extra cost. Buyers will be able to option the model in Pure White, Kings Red Metallic, Reef Blue Metallic and Smoke Grey Metallic, with Ascot Grey a new addition.

Performance of the Edition 25 remains untouched, with its 2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder producing the same 204bhp and 236lb ft as before. Power is sent to the front wheels via a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission, enabling it to reach 62mph from a standstill in 6.5sec.

Carrying a reasonable premium of just £2390 over the standard car, the Volkswagen Polo GTI Edition 25 is priced from £31,295 in the UK. Order books open on August 3, with just 350 of the 2500 examples destined for our shores.
