VW announced today the launch of the Volkswagen Golf Plus BlueMotion in the UK. The 1.6 litre common rail diesel engine in the Golf Plus BlueMotion – down from 1.9 litres in the old Golf Plus BlueMotion – manages 65.7 mpg and emissions of 114g/km, an improvement of 11% in economy and 10% in emissions.
The new VW Golf Plus Bluemotion is basically a Golf Plus with the standard BlueMotion tricks added to improve economy and emissions. These include low rolling resistance tyres, revised gear ratios, start-stop and regenerative braking – the usual box of tricks.
The Volkswagen Golf Plus BlueMotion price for the UK starts at £17,570 for the S trim level and goes up to £18,920 for the SE version.
