Volkswagen introduced its first Polo BlueMotion model featuring TSI technology. If the previous BlueMotion models used a fuel-efficient diesel engine, now the Polo BlueMotion arrives with a new 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that produces 95 hp (70 kW) and 160 Nm (118 lb-ft) of torque, while CO2 emissions are just 94 g/km.
Priced from 15,925 euros in Germany, the 2015 VW Polo TSI BlueMotion promises to offer a combined fuel consumption of 4.1 l/100 km (57 mpg), which is 0.2 liters less than the standard version of the 1.0 TSI engine.
Despite the impressive numbers, top speed achieved by this model is 190 km/g or 118 mph. According to Volkswagen, the 2015 Polo TSI BlueMotion arrives with plenty of features that improve fuel consumption such as improved aerodynamics over the radiator grille and underbody, as well as a lower ride height and reduced rolling tires.
Longer gear ratios in the upper transmission stages also help at improving fuel consumption just like the stop/start system, regenerative braking and gear-change indicator for the driver.
VW’s Polo TSI BlueMotion will be as safe as the other Polo models and arrives as standard with Automatic Post-Collision Braking System (which automatically initiates braking after a collision) and the optional Driver Alert System, Front Assist ambient traffic monitoring system with City Emergency Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).
