VW Eos BlueMotion Introduced in the UK

German carmaker Volkswagen increased the BlueMotion range in the UK, with a new petrol engine version. According to the carmaker, the 1.4-liter TSI 122 hp BlueMotion Technology Eos model can be ordered, in both S and SE trims, for £20,695 and £21,795 RRP on the road, respectively.

This entry-level engine addition to the Eos is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox and is able to produce 122 hp and 147 lbs ft of torque. Just like the other models in the Volkswagen BlueMotion range, but fitted to a petrol engine for the first time, these additions include a number of features to maximise efficiency and improve fuel economy.

Regenerative braking, start/stop and hill hold systems alongside a visual gear change recommendation are all fitted as standard resulting in a combined figure of 45.6 mpg. Carbon dioxide emissions are also improved from 152 g/km to 144 g/km which saves drivers £25 a year.

The Eos BlueMotion Technology models accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 10.9 seconds and go on to a top speed of 121 mph. Furthermore, equipment levels on both BlueMotion Technology trim levels, S and SE include ESP, twin front and side impact airbags, Climatic air conditioning, fog lights, electric windows, electric heated and adjustable wing mirrors, radio/CD player, 16-inch alloy wheels, lockable load through provision and folding hard-top complete with sliding/tilt sunroof are all fitted standard.

For an additional cost of £1,100, the SE BlueMotion Technology adds further equipment including 17-inch alloy wheels, a leather steering wheel and front sports seats, parking sensors, automatic headlights and dusk and rain sensors.
