BlueMotion

Vehicles bearing the BlueMotion label are the most economical Volkswagen models from each range and stand out for their extremely low fuel consumption figures. BlueMotion represents the intelligent interaction between engine, engine management, gearbox, aerodynamics and tyres – the fusion of efficient drive technology, technical innovations and selective aerodynamic measures. The individual fuel-saving measures include:

  • Adapted engine management with modified software
  • Reduced idle speed
  • Longer ratios for the higher gears
  • Recommendation on the most efficient gear to select
  • Optimised aerodynamics to minimise aerodynamic drag
    (cladding for parts in underbody area, radiator grille partly or fully enclosed (depending on vehicle))
  • Tyres with optimised rolling resistance
  • A lowered body
  • Energy regeneration

And a start-stop system.
