The 2015 Geneva Motor Show hosts the world premiere of the Volkswagen Golf TSI BlueMotion. This is Volkswagen’s answer to the Ford Focus 1.0-litre EcoBoost.

The first petrol-engined Golf BlueMotion is powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that produces 115 PS (114 hp) and 200 Nm of torque. In combination with a 6-speed manual gearbox, the direct injection EA211-series engine in the TSI BlueMotion version consumes 4.3 litres per 100 km, which converts to a fuel economy figure of 23.26 km/l.

The higher fuel efficiency was possible thanks to a number of modifications such as a lowered chassis (by 15 mm), a closed radiator grille, partly closed bumper air inlet, special underfloor panels, stop/start system, battery regeneration, modified gearbox and low rolling resistance tyres.

Its CO2 emissions figure is marked at 99 g/km which implies that in markets where there are tax benefits for low CO2 emitting vehicles, the Golf TSI Bluemotion will qualify for incentives and translate into a lower buying price and annual road tax for its customers.

Performance of the emission-minded Golf however is not fully compromised. With this compact but powerful engine, the Golf can achieve a top speed of 204 km/h. A 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox can also be opted for.
