Volkswagen is raising the benchmark for fuel economy in the UK with the introduction of the new Scirocco and Passat CC diesel range that benefit from the firm's BlueMotion Technology.

All entry-level and GT trim Scirocco models fitted with the 2.0-litre diesel engine now feature BlueMotion Technology modifications which include Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems, thus helping to create the cleanest and most fuel efficient Scirocco to date. When combined with the DSG transmission, fuel economy for the diesel powered 140 HP Scirocco 2.0 TDI is improved from 51.4 mpg to 57.6 mpg UK on the combined cycle. CO2 emissions drop down from 145 g/km to 129 g/km. In GT trim, fuel economy for the 170HP 2.0 TDI Scicocco improved from 50.4 mpg to 51.4 mpg UK while CO2 emissions is reduced from 147 g/km to 144 g/km.

The Passat CC line-up also sees BlueMotion Technology with regenerative braking and Start/Stop systems installed in existing diesel versions. The updates helped the 2.0-litre TDI 140HP Passat CC to achieve a combined 60.1 mpg UK (up from 50.4), while CO2 emissions are reduced to 125 g/km, down from 146 g/km. The more powerful 170HP version of the 2.0-litre diesel engine also boast improved figures with fuel economy hitting 51.4 mpg for the DSG equipped model and emissions down to 144 g/km.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
