Volkswagen Polo BlueGT

German carmaker Volkswagen revealed a new model, the BlueGT at the Motor Show in Geneva. This is actually the first VW model with cylinder deactivation. Under the hood it has a 1.4-liter TSI petrol engine that is capable of developing 140 horsepower. This enables the car to reach a top speed of 210 km/h and to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds. All output is being sent to the wheels through a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox. The carmaker equipped the model with 17-inch alloy wheels, GT badging and a lot of other features borrowed from the Polo GTI and Polo BlueMotion. For better aerodynamics, the model is lowered by 15 mm.
