Volkswagen launches Polo Blue GT in autumn, the first brand's automobile with ACT technology that disables two of the four-cylinder engine to save fuel, announced the German automaker.

Polo Blue GT's engine is a turbocharged 1.4-liter that develops 140 horsepower (hp). Cylinders 2 and 3 are turned off automatically when the car does not need power, through ACT - Active Cylinder Management technology.

Volkswagen is the first automaker to implement this technology on a four-cylinder engine. For larger engines, V8, this technology is found in Audi and Mercedes-Benz.

Polo Blue GT consumes on average 4.5 to 4.6 liters of petrol/100 km and emits 105-107 g CO2/km, depending on which gearbox is fitted (six-speed manual or 7-speed DSG, automated dual-clutch). From an Volkswagen engine without ACT technology, this new engine consumes up to a litre/100 km less in ideal conditions - at a speed of 50 km / h in third or fourth.

1.4 liter TSI with ACT delivers a maximum torque of 250 Newton-meter (Nm) between 1,500 and 3,500 revolutions per minute, being able to send Polo Blue GT in 7.9 seconds to 100 km / h and up to a top speed of 210 km / h.

Volkswagen Polo Blue GT has 17-inch wheels, rear diffuser and new bumpers, suspension lowered by 15 mm compared to a conventional Polo, sports seats, ESP, six airbags and power steering electro-hydraulic.

The car is priced around 20,000 euros including VAT.
