VW Launches Most Economical Golf Ever: New BlueMotion Model Returns 3.8lt/100km or 61.9mpg

At this year's Frankfurt Show, along with the world debut of the most powerful series-production Golf ever, the 270HP AWD Golf R, Volkswagen also celebrated the premiere of the most fuel efficient Golf of all time, the second-generation Golf BlueMotion that is now available to buy in Germany from € 21,650. The new BlueMotion model is motivated by a 1.6-liter TDI common-rail diesel engine that produces 105HP with power being transmitted to the front wheels via a long-ratio five-speed manual gearbox.

In addition to the new TDI engine, the Golf BlueMotion also benefits from aerodynamic changes, a braking energy recovery function, a start-stop system and lightweight alloy wheels shod in low rolling resistance tires.

All of these upgrades contribute to an impressive average fuel economy of 3.8 lt / 100km (61.9 mpg US or 74.3mpg UK) and CO2 emissions of just 99 g/km, making the second-generation BlueMotion the most economical Golf of all time.
