As a result, the BlueGT is both capable of a 220 km/h top speed and average fuel consumption of only 4.8 liters per 100 kilometers (4.7 if fitted with the optional DSG gearbox). It's worth noting that adding DSG will increase the price of the car to €21,325, while the cool shade of Blue Silk Metallic is another €470. While you're at it, you might also consider the €800 five-door option if you plan on having rear seat passengers often. So yeah, it's not cheap.
If the economy and performance numbers don't impress you, think of it this way: a Suzuki Swift Sport retails for €19,000 in Germany and packs a 136 horsepower 1.6-liter engine with a manual gearbox. Despite being slower (top speed of 195 km/h), it consumers more fuel: 6.4 l/100km on the combined cycle. Suddenly, what Volkswagen is offering doesn't seem so overpriced!
BlueGT versions of the 2014 Polo will be easily recognized from features such as redesigned darkened taillights, 17-inch alloy wheels, a roof spoiler, modified bumpers (rear with diffuser), side skirts and suspension lowered by 15 mm. On top of that, the car also get the new interior feature we talked about in our first drive review of the 2014 Polo 1.2 TSI.
