Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion will be in Frankfurt

Motoring at a cost level practically as pleasing as that of the Polo is the new Golf BlueMotion (77 kW / 105 PS). Thanks to its fuel consumption of just 3.8 litres diesel (99 g/km CO2), it is the world’s most fuel-efficient car in its class. Its theo­retical range is 1,447 kilometres (55 litre tank). Average annual fuel costs: just 439 Euros or about 37 Euros* per month

Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion will be in Frankfurt

The most fuel-efficient Golf of all times is powered by a new, quiet common rail turbo-diesel. Like all TDIs, this engine does not lack in power by any measure. Just the opposite is true: The 105 PS sixteen-valve, four-cylinder engine generates its maximum torque of 250 Newton-Meters at a low 2,000 rpm. Equipped with these key performance parameters, the engine accelerates the Golf BlueMotion to 100 km/h in just 11.3 seconds. Its top speed: 190 km/h. The new Golf BlueMotion will first arrive at European dealers in late fall of this year.

hmm. Well, I really don’t think that its figure performance is less powerful. Actually,i find it powerful for a diesel power car! This would be the best hatch ever!

I like the decent styling of this car. However, I really don’t like the diesel engine used in this car it makes the car less powerful as well as the speed performance.

Although its in VW brand, shocking to say that Golf was awarded to be the most affordable hatchback! And i agree that the performance of this car is incredible!

This car looks similar with Toyota Prius. However, I will not complained on the figure performance of this car for I believe that a daily used car doesn’t need too much power.

Do you have latest video on Golf Bluemotion in Frankfurt? I am so excited to see it! Maybe we should ask the editor of this website to check on YouTube and post it here!

It’ll be interesting to see if Europe shares your enthusiasm. The A2 wasn’t far from that number, managed 78mpg US and was sold 9 years ago and was deemed too costly them to be a real sales success. I share your enthusiasm but am not sure how well this will be received in the primary market VW intends to sell it.

You would likely want full HP on tap for merging or emergencies (just make a WOT map that ignores MPG). You’re not going to get diesel or hybrid numbers, but I’m pretty confident that you’d be able to get a 10% increase. All this with pretty much zero cost.
