VW Scirocco and Passat CC go Bluemotion

Volkswagen has developed Bluemotion versions of its Scirocco and Passat CC.

All entry-level Scirocco and GT trim models with the 2.0-litre 138bhp engine now feature BlueMotion Technology modifications including Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems.

The models, available with a six-speed manual or optional six-speed DSG gearbox feature increased fuel economy, improved from 55.4 mpg to 62.8 mpg on the combined cycle (51.4 to 57.6 DSG), and lower emissions, down from 134 g/km to 118 g/km (145 to 129 DSG) to allow all BlueMotion Sciroccos to drop two tax brackets over previous models.

Volkswagen has also announced revisions to the 2.0-litre TDI 168bhp engine fitted to the Scirocco GT, which result in fuel economy figures improving to 55.4 mpg from 53.3 mpg (50.4 to 51.4 DSG) and CO2 emissions reducing from 139 to 134 g/km (147 to 144 for DSG).

Revisions to the 2.0-litre TDI 138bhp Passat CC models achieve a combined 60.1 mpg, up from 50.4, and CO2 emissions are cut to 125 g/km, down from 146 g/km.

The more powerful 2.0-litre diesel engine in the range producing 170 PS also boasts improved figures with economy up to 57.6 mpg (51.4 DSG) and emissions down to 129 g/km (144 DSG).

The Scirocco and Passat CC Bluemotion models are available to order at Volkswagen dealers.
