BlueMotion for Scirocco and Passat CC  25 | 11 | 2010

    VOLKSWAGEN HAS expanded its hugely successful BlueMotion technology into both the Scirocco and Passat CC models in its range. The new models are available to order across the VW dealership network in Scotland.

    As a result of the new technology, all entry-level Scirocco and GT trim models with the 2.0-litre 138bhp engine now feature BlueMotion modifications including Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems.

    Available with a six-speed manual or optional six-speed DSG gearbox the models feature increased fuel economy improved from 55.4 mpg to 62.8 mpg on the combined cycle (51.4 to 57.6 DSG), and lower emissions, down from 13 g/km to 118g/km (145 to 129 DSG). The reduction allows all BlueMotion Sciroccos to drop two tax brackets over previous models.

    In addition to the BlueMotion models, VW has also announced improvements to the 2.0-litre TDI 168bhp engine fitted to the Scirocco GT, resulting in improved fuel consumption from 53.3mpg to 55.4mpg (50.4 to 51.4 DSG) and CO2 emissions down from 139 to 134g/km (147 to 144 for DSG).

    Revisions to the 2.0TDI 138bhp Passat CC models achieve a combined 60.1mpg, up from 50.4, and CO2 emissions are cut to 125 g/km, down from 146g/km. The more powerful 2.0-litre diesel engine in the range producing 170PS also boasts improved figures with economy up to 57.6mpg (51.4 DSG) and emissions down to 129 g/km (144 DSG).
