GOLF BLUEMOTION

Volkswagen Australia has today announced that the Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion, part of the company's winning World Green Car Of The Year 2009 BlueMotion range, will make its local debut at next month's Australian International Motor Show.

The Golf BlueMotion ducks under the 4.0 l/100km mark (and also under fuel economy leaders in the small-car class like the Toyota Prius and MINI Cooper D), listing fuel consumption figures of 3.8 l/100km. Emissions are listed at just 99g/km.

Powered by Volkswagen's 77kW 1.6 litre turbodiesel four-cylinder, it's not too slow either: top speed is 190km/h, and the 0-100km/h sprint is covered in 11.3 seconds.

A generous 250Nm of torque improves driveability and its 55 litre fuel tank gives it a 'theoretical' maximum range of over 1500 kilometres.

Among the features helping the Golf BlueMotion to its excellent fuel economy is a modified engine management system and a lower idling speed, along with regenerative braking, a stop-start system, low-rolling-resistance tyres, lightweight wheels and lowered suspension.

As with certain other Golf Models, Golf BlueMotion drivers benefit from a gear-shift indicator integrated in the instrument cluster, displaying the most energy-efficienct gear for the current speed and driving conditions.

On the safety front, the Golf BlueMotion will share the same safety features of all Golf models, including ABS, ESP, Hill Start Assist, seven airbags, belt tensioners and belt force limiters plus seatbelt warning indicator and head restraints, along with three rear head restraints with three point seatbelts for all passengers.

Visually, the Golf BlueMotion is set apart from the regular Golf 77TDI by a number of interior styling tweaks, along with a chrome-striped grille with BlueMotion badges up front and at the rear.

 

Pricing and Availability

Pricing and availability for the Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion will be announced closer to its launch in 2011.
