If you wanted to go down that route, presumably you could get the Citigo wheel and replace the badge with an appropriately sized VW one. I would also imagine that the airbag would be the difficult bit.
Thanks. It's my wife's car so I'm not likely to fix it unless it annoys her too. I was just interested why the other brands of this car offer a proper steering wheel and VW chose the peculiar one.
I wonder if the EU whole vehicle type approval and Euro NCAP where done with the round steering wheel or the flat bottom wheel or both. That would be very naughty if VW have made a safety component substitution after obtaining ECWVTA simply for styling.
The different shaped steering wheel & airbag assembly shouldn't really affect the euro ncap results. The steering wheels in the Mii & Citigo might fractionally alter the leg trapping aspect of things, but now euro ncap demands a collapseable steering column joint to the steering rack to avoid such circumstances. As for the different airbag shapes, this would have no effect on the actual deployment, as the basic design would be the same.
