Volkswagen Golf news - What’s cleaner than clean? - 2009
Back in July, VW announced that its new BlueMotion Golf would emit just 107g/km of CO2, putting it firmly into the £35 road tax bracket.
But now VW has made the Golf even cleaner. The new iteration of the BlueMotion puts out a near-unbelievable 99g/km of CO2 and returns 74.3mpg, meaning a free road tax disc and approximately a quarter of a million miles between refuelling stops.
99g/km is an astonishing figure: just a year or two ago, we were impressed when the Polo BlueMotion broke the magical 100g/km barrier. But the Polo is a dinky city car, while the Golf is a proper family hatch. Impressive stuff.
There’s no magic behind the Golf’s stellar figures, just a refinement of VW’s tried-and-tested BlueMotion tricks: low rolling resistance tyres, longer gearing, improved aero and start-stop technology.
If you fancy giving a cheeky two-fingered salute to the road taxman, the cleaner-than-industrial-strength-bleach Golf BlueMotion is available to order now.
