Volkswagen Launches Golf Plus BlueMotion in the UK

We’ve already informed you about the more economical and ‘cleaner’ version of Volkswagen’s Golf, called the BlueMotion, which was introduced one month ago by the German carmaker. And since we got so used to Volkswagen releasing version after version of its new generation Golf, then you will not be surprised to hear that it has just announced the pricing and details of the latest BlueMotion model, the Golf Plus, for the UK market. There are two trim levels available, with prices starting at £17,570 ($29,050) RRP for the Golf Plus BlueMotion S, rising to £18,920 ($31,280) for the SE version, which is with £325 ($537) more than standard models.
The BlueMotion version of 1.6-litre common rail TDI 105 PS engine provides 65,7 mpg (3,58l/100km) combined cycle and emits 114g/km of CO2. That helps the fleet drivers to save up to £1,000 ($1,653) in Benefit in Kind tax over a three year period.

The modifications brought to the standard versions include revised gear ratios in third, fourth and fifth, the addition of low rolling resistance tires, a Start/Stop function and regenerative braking.

According to the manufacturer, a Golf Plus BlueMotion owner could take a trip from London to the Lake District, enjoy 200 miles-worth of day trips while there, and return to London before having to refuel. Moreover, if he covers under 8,000 miles a year, he will only need to fill up once every five weeks.

Just like with the standard versions, owners will benefit from ABS with ESP, six airbags, air conditioning, a CD player and multi-function computer – with the addition of gearchange recommendation on BlueMotion for maximum economy. SE adds Park Assist to ease parallel parking maneuvers, cruise control and alloy wheels. All Golf Plus diesel models have a standard Diesel Particulate Filter.
