80.7 mpg VW Polo Really Turning Heads

Volkswagen has released its latest Polo BlueMotion, an 80.7 mpg fuel economy wonder. Combined cycle fuel consumption of 80.7 mph makes the new NW Polo Bluemotion amongst the most efficient vehicles on the market.

Prices start at £14,445 on the road, but the main news is the fuel economy and its subsequent low emissions.

The new Polo BlueMotion features a new 1.2-litre TDI three-cylinder common rail diesel engine offering 75 PS, and 133 lbs. ft. (180 Nm) of torque available from 2,000 rpm. The new engine, combined with longer gearing through the five-speed manual gearbox, regenerative braking and an automatic start/stop system, help the new Polo BlueMotion emit just 91 g/km of CO2 while returning an impressive 80.7 mpg on the combined cycle. This grants the new Polo BlueMotion a theoretical range of over 800 miles on one tank of diesel.

As good as the engine may be, can’t offer such low fuel consumption without the right tire/wheel package. That’s why the new Polo Blue motion comes fitted with 15-inch Greenland alloy wheels fitted with 185/60R15 low rolling resistance tires. VW didn’t give any further details about which company would be supplying these tires.

The new Polo goes from 0 to 62 mph in 13.9 seconds and has a top speed of 107 mph. (Tyres & Accessories)
