VW launches an updated eco-friendly version of the Golf Plus
12 August 2009

Volkswagen has launched a BlueMotion version of its new Golf Plus, with CO2 emissions of 114g/km and combined fuel economy of 65.7mpg.

The VW Golf Plus BlueMotion uses the same 104bhp 1.6-litre common-rail TDI engine as the regular Golf BlueMotion.

Its CO2 emissions and fuel economy figures are 10 per cent and 11 per cent better respectively over the outgoing 1.9-litre TDI-powered Golf Plus BlueMotion.

Eco modifications include revised gear ratios in third, fourth and fifth, the addition of low-resistance tyres, a stop-start system and regenerative braking.

The Golf Plus BlueMotion is available in two trim levels - S and SE - and its standard features are the same as on the regular models. These include ABS, ESP, six airbags, air conditioning, a CD player and a gearchange recommendation function to help improve economy.

Prices for the new Golf Plus BlueMotion start at £17,570 in S trim. It is available to order now and deliveries are due to start in October.

Volkswagen Golf Plus

The Volkswagen Golf Plus offers extra space but little in the way of added versatility. Is that enough?
