- Trade fair premiere at the Geneva Motor Show
- Fuel consumption of 3.6 l / 100 km best in class for a compact MPV
At Volkswagen the term BlueMotion has stood for excellent environmental compatibility and ecological credentials since 2006. Using this technology, Volkswagen continually supplements its range of extremely fuel-efficient models, extending its lines through the addition of progressive, reduced consumption, lower emission BlueMotion models. Despite all its efficiency, the new Golf Sportsvan TDI BlueMotion is also a multi-talented five-seater that transports its passengers safely, comfortably and nimbly and provides a spacious, flexible interior as well.
The good aerodynamics of the 81 kW / 110 PS Golf Sportsvan TDI BlueMotion contributes significantly to the low fuel consumption. Thanks to numerous modifications the new MPV achieves an impressive CD value of 0.27. Among the factors that have enhanced the aerodynamics are the lowered vehicle body (15 millimetres lower), a special roof edge spoiler, a radiator grille - with blue strip - partially closed to the outside, a partially sealed ventilation grille with radiator shutter behind it, optimised cooling airflow and special underfloor panels.
The Golf Sportsvan TDI BlueMotion is available in Trendline and Comfortline versions. The specific BlueMotion features also include 15-inch alloy wheels and tyres optimised for low roll resistance. The new BlueMotion model is additionally perfected by a Stop/Start system, regenerative braking mode, modifications within the TDI engine and a modified 6-speed manual gearbox. The new Golf Sportsvan TDI BlueMotion will be available in Germany from this summer.
