Review

The main selling point for the BlueMotion is VW’s claim that it combines great economy with low emissions without sacrificing performance.

In other words, it mixes what your head wants and what your heart needs. At the heart is the 1.6-litre common rail TDI engine emitting 99g/km CO2 and delivering 74.3mpg. It is the most fuel-efficient production Golf ever. 

Combining the rock-solid pedigree of a motoring icon like the Golf to industry leading technology should prove a winner for VW dealers – imagine owning a hybrid without having to worry about how it drives, or servicing and repairs.
