The 2013 Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion is now available on order in UK from 20,335 GBP for the three-door version and from 20,990 GBP for the five-door model.

At its heart is a four-cylinder, 1.6-liter TDI common-rail EA288 engine producing 110 HP (81 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque from 1,500 rpm to 3,000 rpm. Thanks to a 50-liter fuel tank and a combined fuel consumption of 88.3 mpg UK (73.5 mpg US or 3.2 liters / 100 km), the new Golf BlueMotion provides a theoretical range of 970 miles (1,561 km) and has CO2 emissions of just 85 g/km.

It comes with a six-speed manual gearbox featuring longer gear ratios, along with low-rolling resistance tires with higher air pressure, stop/start and battery regeneration which all work together to lower fuel consumption.

Volkswagen has also made some aerodynamic tweaks like a masked front grille, roof spoiler, partially closed air inlet screens, lateral air guide elements on the rear window, C-pillar spoiler, special underfloor panels and optimized cooling system airflow.

More details are available in the attached press release.
