Geneva: Volkswagen Polo BlueGT presented image

The German based automaker Volkswagen has recently presented the Polo BlueGT at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

According to the car manufacturer, the VW Polo BlueGT is an extremely fuel-efficient and sporty vehicle, being also the first vehicle made by the company to come with the cylinder deactivation system, which, along with the battery regeneration and the stop/start system, along with the seven-speed dual clutch transmission (DSG), can achieve 4.5 liters of fuel burned every 100 km (62.8 mpg imp), while emitting just 105 g/km of CO2, a pretty impressive performance for a petrol engine.

Volkswagen says that the Polo BlueGT is powered by the company’s new 1.4 liter TSI engine, which is developing a total output of 140 horsepower, allowing the small compact to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph). The Volkswagen Polo BlueGT should close the gap between the Polo 1.2 TSI, with its 105 PS, and the Polo GTI, which is coming with 180 PS.

The VW Polo BlueGT is standing out from the crowd thanks to the GT badging, dual tailpipes, rear spoiler, rear bumper with diffuser, front bumper, daytime running lights, fog lights, black painted grille, R-line bumper vents, black side mirrors, underbody trim and 17-inch alloy wheels. The Polo BlueGT is expected to hit the showrooms in July.
