Volkswagen Polo 1.0 TSI BlueMotion priced

Volkswagen is a top rated brand and this is already a fact. It is one of the most famous names in the auto industry and, as its name suggests, it is a car for everyone. Maybe this is possible to the great variety of vehicles it produces. Lately it has been a rather busy company, developing all kinds of new projects. Such a project is the new Volkswagen Polo 1.0 TSI BlueMotion, which has been priced from £14,730 in the U.K. The vehicle is available on order for now and deliveries will start in March.

The Volkswagen Polo 1.0 TSI BlueMotion is a premiere for the German company as it is the first time when a BlueMotion Polo receives a gasoline engine. And we are talking here about the 1.0-liter TSI unit outputting 95 HP (70 kW) between 5,000 and 5,500 rpm and 118 Nm (87 lb-ft) of torque in the 1,500 and 3,500 rpm range. This enables the facelift hatchback to get to 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in 10.5 seconds and to reach a maximum speed of 119 mph (191.5 km/h).

Volkswagen Polo 1.0 TSI BlueMotion is available as three or five door versions and for the last one the price can go up to £15,360. The small vehicle is equipped with a five-speed manual gearbox which allows both versions to return 68.9 mpg UK (57.3 mpg US or 4.1 liters / 100 km) with corresponding CO2 emissions of 94 g/km. We can also notice 15-inch Buenos Aires alloys shod in low-rolling resistance tires, an aerodynamic body kit, cruise control, front center armrest, alarm with remote central locking and a multi-function leather-covered steering wheel, as well as an infotainment system with a color touchscreen display and support for DAB radio, SD cards and USB and AUX connections.
