Volkswagen Golf TDI BlueMotion German price

We will now tell you more on the most frugal Golf model in the history of the compact hatchback, the new VW Golf TDI BlueMotion, the 7th generation, which by the way is now available to order in Germany. This new generation model of the Golf TDI BlueMotion comes with a 15 improvement in fuel consumption in comparison to the previous model. Why are we saying this? Well, as it turns out, the model is rated at 3.2 liters / 100 km and the CO2 emission level reaches 85 g/km. Under the hood it hides a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder diesel engine capable of producing 110 PS and 250 Nm of torque.

The new model comes with different fuel-saving components like low rolling resistance tires with higher air pressure, a start-stop system, brake energy recovery and a consumption-optimized 6-speed manual transmission that comes with longer gear ratios. So that the car would be able to achieve a drag coefficient of 0.27, the body work has received aerodynamic modifications. To be more precise, we are talking about a 15 mm lower chassis, a special spoiler with black side aerodynamic elements and also a partially enclosed radiator grille, to complete the process.

The Germans have also tried to make the new Golf TDI BlueMotion capable of turning heads around when on the street more then with the other models in the range. To do so, they had to offer it with an optional exclusive exterior color called Clearwater Blue Metallic. In case you are interested in it, you should know it will cost you another EUR525. The specialists offer the model in two trim levels: Trendline and Comfortline. The starting price has been established to start at EUR21.000 in Germany. VW is preparing a BlueMotion version based on the Golf Variant, but that is only for the end of this year.
