Wolfsburg, 8. September 2008 – with the Golf VI also goes the pump-Duse injection in retirement, the new golf is only offered with common rail diesel engines. Below the 2.0 TDI with 140 hp, it first becomes a slightly more weak variant with 110 hp and also 2.Add 0 liters of displacement, but it does not stay. Volkswagen now has the Golf BlueMotion with the 1.6-TDI engine presented, which promises significantly lower consumption compared to the 2.0-liter diesel.
As economical as a polo BlueMotion
VW presents the study of the Golf BlueMotion as "worldwide the most economical automobile of its class". The consumption should be at only 3.8 liters at 100 kilometers, the CO2 emissions at 99 grams per kilometer. Thus, the golf is as conspicuous as the most economical small cars. The most crucial cars with more than two seats in the Volkswagen Group are the still available old model of SEAT Ibiza in the ecomotive version as well as the Polo BlueMotion. Both need 3.8 liters like the new Golf Study. Minimally economical is the currently introduced Ford Fiesta Econetic with 90 hp and a consumption of 3.7 liters. Even less consumes only the diesel smart with 3.3 liters to 100 kilometers. Also at Toyota Prius, the Golf BlueMotion Locker moves past, because this takes 4.3 liters of gas to 100 kilometers and is also 104 g / km CO2 behind the Golf Study.
1.6 TDI with 105 diesel PS
The BlueMotion is powered by a new common rail turbodiesel. The four-valve four-cylinder provides 105 hp and develops its maximum torque of 250 Newton meters at 2000 revolutions. So he accelerates the Golf BlueMotion in 11.3 seconds to 100 km / h and allows a highest speed of 190 km / h. The Golf is erupted with a diesel particulate filter and fills the euro 5 emission standard – like all the motorizations of Golf VI. As with all BlueMotion models, the Golf Study also help for more long-range transmission recipients when saving – even here must have a rich. The use of roll-resistant tires and special aerodynamic maps are also known from the alter BlueMotion models.
