67MPG Volkswagen Polo BlueMotion - Web Exclusive

Feb 18, 2010

The new Polo BlueMotion is available to order from Europe’s Volkswagen dealers in either three- or five-door body styles. It adopts an all-new 1.2-liter TDI three-cylinder common-rail diesel engine developing 75hp and 133 lb-ft of torque available from just 2000rpm. This new engine, combined with longer gearing through the five-speed manual transmission, also uses regenerative braking and an automatic Start/Stop system. This helps the new Polo BlueMotion emit just 91g/km of CO2 while returning an impressive 80.7mpg (Imperial) on the combined cycle (67mpg US). This gives the Polo a theoretical range of over 800 miles on one tank of diesel.

These technological enhancements are accompanied by several cosmetic changes designed to maximize efficiency. Comprising bespoke bumpers, side skirts and an extended roof spoiler along with 15 ‘Greenland’ wheels fitted with low rolling resistance tires, they contribute to making the BlueMotion among the most efficient vehicles on the market.

The Polo BlueMotion accelerates 0-62mph in 13.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 107mph.

Comfort levels remain high with manual air conditioning, cruise control and a leather steering wheel fitted as standard. As with all models in the Polo range, a number of safety features are also fitted, including four airbags, ABS and ESP.
