VW adds Bluemotion to people carrier models

Volkswagen has expanded its range of Bluemotion vehicles with the addition of its Touran and Sharan people carriers.VW Touran BlueMotion

The Bluemotion badge represents the most efficient model in a particular range, with modifications to aero dynamics, engine and the addition of low resistance tyres.

Both the Touran and Sharan have a revised gearbox with lengthened ratios in third, fourth and fifth gears. The Touran comes with a 1.9-litre, four-cylinder 103bhp engine and the Touran comes with a 2.0-litre 138bhp TDI, putting out 144g/km and 159g/km of carbon dioxide respectively.

VW says the revisions to the models mean the Touran will do 52.3mpg and the Sharan will hit 47.1mpg.

Both vehicles are now on sale with prices starting at £16,725 for the Touran and £21,290 for the Sharan.VW Sharan Bluemotion
