Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion Now on Sale

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

The second generation Golf BlueMotion is ready on the starting grid: with TDI, start-stop function and braking energy recovery, it is the top of its class.

It is already available to buy in Germany from € 21,650.

The new Golf BlueMotion now comes with an optional package of various hi-tech components and applications which allows it to reach extremely low levels of consumption and emissions.

With an average fuel consumption of 3.8 l / 100 km (61.9mpg
U.S.) and CO2 emissions of just 99 g/km, this is the most economical Golf of all time. The superbly efficient 1.6 TDI contributes greatly to this.

The new Common Rail engine delivers a power output of 77 kW / 105 PS yet is still even more efficient than the first generation Polo BlueMotion.

This comparison just goes to show how hard Volkswagen works to increase efficiency in all of its models. The engine's power is transmitted via a long-ratio five-speed manual gearbox. What's more there is a gear recommendation function so that the Golf BlueMotion is always driving in the gear best suited for optimum consumption.

Additional features in the Golf BlueMotion are a braking energy recovery function (regeneration), a start-stop system (automatic switch-off function for the engine while standing), tyres optimised for rolling resistance, exceptionally light and aerodynamic wheels, an aerodynamically refined body and a lowered running gear.
