The Volkswagen Concept BlueSport which Volkswagen unveiled at the 2009 Detroit Motor Show was a stylish and well proportioned roadster concept which looked far more production ready than the Volkswagen EcoRacer concept from 2005.

When creating the Concept BlueSport Volkswagen's designers and engineers were tasked with designing a car which offered maximum driving fun and minimal fuel consumption. The powerplant choices underlines these design ideals. Behind the passenger compartment is a high-tech TDI or TSI engine that offers perfomance without the price of high fuel consumption. The Concept BlueSport displayed at the Detroit Motor Show was equipped with the 2.0 litre diesel unit. This engine develops 180 hp and 258 lb-ft (350Nm) of torque @ 1,750 rpm. Mated to a six-speed dual clutch transmission driving the rear wheels the Volkswagen Concept BlueSport is able to hit 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds. Top speed is 140 mph. Yet despite its performance potential the BlueSport can achieve up to 55 mpg in eco-mode and has a theoretical 710 mile range.

Helping the 1200 kg (2645 lb) Concept BlueSport achive this impressive mpg is a engine stop-start system. When the car stops at a red traffic light, for example, it automatically shuts off its engine. As soon as the light turns green again, just tapping on the accelerator is enough to start the engine in an instant. The system saves up to 0.2 liters of fuel per 60 miles in the city. Furthermore when the Concept BlueSport is braking, some of the energy is reclaimed by the alternator, which relieves the engine and further improves fuel economy.

The styling of the Volkswagen Concept BlueSport displays the new VW styling language which is being brought in across the model range. The front end and headlight arrangement is similar to the design of the new Scirocco and Golf. This overall design theme was developed by Walter de Silva (Director of Design for the Volkswagen Group), Flavio Manzoni (Director of Creative Design for Volkswagen AG) and Klaus Bischoff.

Thomas Ingenlath, lead project designer for the BlueSport concept car, sums up the Concept BlueSport this way: "The concept car looks into the viewer’s eyes with a powerful, masterful look; everything is clear and precise. Standing here is an agile athlete who has no need to display an aggressive attitude."

The interior of the Volkswagen Concept BlueSport is designed to be user friendly. Everything was positioned to be ideally situated to reach, operate, and control.

Klaus Bischoff: "The interior shows finesse in details and conveys a high level of technological fascination. The special flair of the interior expresses itself in the architectonic purity of its components."

Located in the centre console is a touch-screen interface through which all entertainment and and information is controlled. In front of the screen is an electronic dial which is used to operate the dual clutch transmission. Above the touchscreen are the three large control dials for the dual-zone automatic climate control system.
