Source : 2015 Volkswagen Golf Bluemotion 1.0 TSI review
We try the turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol variation of the Golf Bluemotion. If you’re not doing mega miles, This kind of’s a better bet than the diesel Volkswagen’s first petrol-powered full-on Bluemotion product – not to be confused with those products carrying the Bluemotion Technology badge. Using the 1.0-litre engine fitted to the Up as a base, VW has added a turbocharger as well as intercooler to raise power to an Ecoboost-rivalling 113bhp at 5000-5500rpm.Furthermore, torque is actually up to a healthy 147Ib ft between 2000 as well as 3500rpm. Thanks to some cunning design as well as plenty of aluminium, the whole engine weighs just 89kg, which helps the product weigh under 1300kg even having a driver.Not only does the relative lack of mass help account for the 10.5 sec 0-62mph time nevertheless This kind of also helps economy. Claimed fuel consumption is actually just 65.7mpg as well as CO2 emissions are 99g/km.As with various other Bluemotion products, there are further alterations to achieve those figures. Up front, you get an active air shutter in which can close off the engine bay when cooling air isn’t required. There’s also a little rear spoiler, flat panels to cover the oily bits underneath as well as 15mm lower suspension. All of these modifications reduce drag, helping This kind of car slide through the air more cleanly than regular Golfs.
