BlueMotion version for the VW Golf VI

Smaller emission of CO2 are something which every car producer wants to brag about to attract eco-friendly customers, and the people car manufacturer, VW is no exception, having announced a special BlueMotion version of their highly anticipated sixth generation Golf. Target for a lot of attention, one of the most popular brand from VW, the Golf really has been a popular subject for the press’ attention, and the hype around it is going to keep on rising until it’s official debut at the Paris Motor Show.

This new BlueMotion version is sure to be a high point in VW’s presentation, fitted with a 1.6 litre TDI engine, capable of delivering 105 PS and a torque of 184 lbs-ft, it will achieve a pretty nice 74,3 mpg in a combined environment, and emitting only 99 g/km of CO2, a number which not a lot of manufacturers can compete with. These specs remind of the economy achived by the smaller Polo BlueMotion version, but this Golf is capable of going to 100 km/h or 62 mph from a standstill in only 11,3 seconds, who said economy equals power, and manages to get to a top speed of 117 mph.

Other features aimed to help improve the fuel economy are low resistance tires, an improved aerodynamics pack and a specially tuned gearbox ratios. This version is slated for a January release date in the UK and mid-2009 for other countries. Check out more photos after the jump.
