The new 2013 Volkswagen Golf will continue the carmaker's trend of BlueMotion-branded misers, previewed by a new technology study at this week’s Paris Motor Show.

As with the recently leaked GTI 'concept', we expect this Bluemotion study to reach production largely unchanged.

Following in the footsteps of previous BlueMotion Golfs, this new model of the model is designed for maximum fuel efficiency: Volkswagen claims a European cycle combined figure of just 3.2 l/100km.

This marks a 0.6 l/100km improvement over the existing model, with a 85g/km emissions figure some 14g/km better to boot.

The improved figures come courtesy of the new Golf’s lighter MQB platform, along with a new 1.6 litre turbodiesel engine rated at 81kW and 250Nm.

Aerodynamics are once again optimised through a lower ride height and effective yet subtle body additions, delivering a drag coefficient figure of just 0.27.

Other BlueMotion efficiency measures include low rolling-resistance tyres, taller gear ratios, a stop/start system, and brake energy regeneration.

Unlike previous BlueMotion models, the production version will be available internationally in both Trendline and Comfortline spec levels.

European sales of the production Golf Bluemotion are set to commence in the second half of next year, with Australian deliveries likely to follow in 2014.

For now, Australian buyers can look to the existing Golf BlueMotion, offering 77kW and fuel consumption figures of 3.8 l/100km.
