When it comes to fuel economy and performance, it seems you just might be able to have your cake and eat it, too. Volkswagen’s Polo Blue GT, which debuts today at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, appears to pack a powerful punch without drinking conspicuous amounts of gasoline.
Apart from a different grille and a lack of fog lamps, the new Polo Blue GT looks quite a bit like its sibling, the range-topping Volkswagen Polo GTI. Where the two differ is underhood. The Polo GTI’s primary claim to fame is its turbo- and supercharged 1.4-liter I-4, which sends as much as 180 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels.
