According to the guys at autocar.co.uk, the future generation of the Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion will achieve 88 mpg from its 1.6 liter TDI diesel engine and it will emit just 85 g/km of CO2 once it will hit the market. Our source is also saying that standard version of the Golf, equipped with the same 1.6 TDI engine, will emit 99 g/km of CO2, but thanks to weight savings and improved drag co-efficient, the new Golf is expected to become the cleanest in its class.
Volkswagen said just a day ago that the future generation of the Golf will drop as much as 100 kg (220 pounds) from its weight thanks to the new MQB modular platform, which is already used on the new Audi A3, and which it will also underpin more models within the brand. The Golf 7 will get the 1.2 TSI and the 1.4 TSI with Active Cylinder Management system, along with the 1.6 TDI And the 2.0 TDI. A top of the line 2.0 TSI will also make its way under the hood of the model, in two outputs, one for the GTI and one for the R versions. The VW Golf 7 will debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show but before that, it will be presented in Berlin on the 4th of September.
