A newly introduced 2017 VW Bluemotion Golf 1.5 TSI boasts a 129bhp 1.5-litre TSI powerplant and due to engine-off coasting returns a claimed 61.4mpg.
Launched this year, the fresh 2017 VW Bluemotion Golf 1.5 TSI appears to be a facelifted version of the seventh generation VW family hatchback, also known as the Golf Mk7.5. Well, with slight styling tweaks along with an equipment boost, it also derives huge benefits from fresh, cutting-edge motors under the bonnet, and it’s especially true for a new 1.5-litre turbocharged ‘TSI’ petrol motor.
Volkswagen has already unveiled fresh details about the economical and efficient Bluemotion version of the vehicle driven by the 1.5-litre power unit, already detuned to 129bhp.
The major cutting-edge feature is the introduction of promising engine-off coasting abilities. To put this another way, coasting at speeds up to 81mph will cause the motor to switch off. The given motor’s mated to a regular DSG gearbox. Another exclusive feature is a compact lithium-ion battery. It’s rather utilized not for propulsion, but to deliver power to the car’s systems, when the motor’s switched off.
