Volkswagen Polo TSI BlueMotion (3)

H Volkswagen ανακοίνωσε το Polo TSI BlueMotion. Για πρώτη φορά η VW τοποθετεί τα σήματα “BlueMotion” σε ένα μοντέλο με βενζινοκινητήρα. Πρόκειται για τον 1.000αρη τρικύλινδρο turbo κινητήρα 95 ίππων με 160 Nm ροπής. Στην έκδοση αυτή έχει μέση κατανάλωση 4,1 λίτρα/100 χλμ, εκπέμπει 94 γρ/χλμ CO2 και έχει τελική ταχύτητα 190 χλμ/ώρα.

Η BlueMotion έκδοση του 1.000αρη κινητήρα, καταναλώνει 0,2 λίτρα/100 χλμ λιγότερο καύσιμο και για να το επιτύχουν αυτό, οι Γερμανοί έχουν βελτιώσει την αεροδυναμική του, έχουν τοποθετήσει ελαστικά χαμηλής αντίστασης κύλισης, έχουν αλλάξει τη κλιμάκωση του κιβωτίου, έχουν μειώσει τη απόσταση από το έδαφος, ενώ έχουν τοποθετήσει σύστημα Start/Stop, σύστημα ειδοποίησης αλλαγής ταχυτήτων και σύστημα ανάκτησης ενέργειας κατά το φρενάρισμα. Στη Γερμανία, το Polo TSI BlueMotion ξεκινά από τις €15.925.

First Polo BlueMotion to have TSI technology

  • 4.1 l/100 km and best in class for fuel consumption and CO2 emissions
  • Polo TSI BlueMotion now available to order

In the Polo TSI BlueMotion Volkswagen is offering its fuel-saving technology for the first time in conjunction with a petrol engine.

With the Polo TSI BlueMotion1 Volkswagen has succeeded in optimising the already economical TSI engines even further: improvements to the engine management system have made it possible to reduce fuel consumption by a further 0.2 litres to 4.1 l/100 km and emissions to only 94 g/km CO2. As a result, the TSI BlueMotion is the first petrol-driven Polo to receive a class A label for energy efficiency and achieve top ratings for fuel consumption and CO2 emissions in its class. Like all Polo models it also complies with the strict EU6 emissions standard. This does not imply any loss of driving performance, however: the new three-cylinder engine with a displacement of one litre delivers 70 kW / 95 PS and can reach a top speed of over 190 km/h.

Apart from this first use of the highly efficient engine, the excellent fuel consumption figures were also the result of lowering the ride height and improving the aerodynamics over the radiator grille and the underbody. Furthermore, the Polo TSI BlueMotion also benefits from reduced rolling resistance tyres and longer gear ratios in the upper transmission stages. Other factors contributing to greater driving economy are the stop/start system, regenerative braking and a gear-change indicator for the driver.

Like all new Polo cars, the new Polo TSI BlueMotion offers a range of driving, convenience and safety technologies which is unique in this class. For example, a new electro-mechanical servo steering system improves steering properties. Assistance systems have also been introduced into the Polo programme such as the standard 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).

The infotainment options have also been re-conceptualised, with three radio/CD systems and one radio/CD/navigation system. Depending on the version, the devices offer functions such as Bluetooth audio streaming (including cover display and touchscreen control, depending on the smart phone used), a proximity sensor (other menu details are shown when hand approaches the screen), and interfacing of the mobile phone to the vehicle’s exterior antenna by inductive coupling.

The entry price for the new Polo TSI BlueMotion is €15,925.

1Fuel consumption figures for the Polo TSI BlueMotion in l/100 km: 5.0 (urban cycle) / 3.6 (extra-urban) / 4.1 (combined); CO2 emissions in g/km: 94 (combined); efficiency class: A
