The BlueMotion designation not only brings an efficient engine, but also various features that are designed to reduce fuel consumption, such as low rolling resistance tires. Speaking of the powerplant, we have to tell you that the car is powered by a 1.6-liter TDI oil burner that produces 105 hp.
“The Golf BlueMotion is equipped with an exceedingly innovative high-tech package yet is affordable for all drivers. This package includes an efficient common rail TDI engine developing 77kW of power and features several systems and modifications to optimise efficiency. These include a Start / Stop system, and a multifunction computer providing visual gear change recommendation for optimum fuel consumption. Low rolling resistance tyres are also fitted to reduce the drag of the vehicle,” a company statement reads.
The Golf BlueMotion offers a combined cycle fuel efficiency of 3.8 liters per 100 km and only emits 99 grams of CO2 per km, offering both eco and financial advantages.
“This is a competitively-priced vehicle that will match or beat hybrids currently available in the market while being conventional to drive, service and repair. Delivering on its promise to produce class-leading vehicles which are efficient, sustainable, practical, comfortable and competitively priced, the Golf BlueMotion boasts a surplus of prestigious awards to its list of accolades,” Volkswagen brags in a statement.
