The Volkswagen Polo BlueGT unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show

The Volkswagen Polo BlueGT has been unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show

The Volkswagen Polo BlueGT has been unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. This model is powered by a 1.4 litre four cylinder engine returning approximately 60 mpg and emitting a forecasted 108g/km of co2 emissions. It is capable of 0-62mph in 7.9 seconds and has a top speed of 130mph.

The exterior of the VW Polo BlueGT is distinguished by various styling cues including multi-spoke 17-inch alloys and GT badges front and rear.  The suspension is lowered by around 15 mm.  Added to this are some features borrowed from the Polo GTI (the rear spoiler, rear bumper with diffuser, plus front bumper with LED daytime running lights) and some features borrowed from the Polo BlueMotion (side sills and front windscreen rain channels).  A black-painted front grille and black door mirror caps complete the look. 

The interior of the car is that of the Polo GTI, the roof lining is in black, while the instruments are also from the GTI.  Both driver and passenger sit on bespoke BlueGT sports seats, and there is a leather-trimmed steering wheel with BlueGT emblem.

The Volkswagen Polo BlueGT will go on sale in Europe in July; UK availability is not yet confirmed.
