Volkswagen previewed its most frugal iteration of the Golf 7 with its unveiling of the Golf BlueMotion concept at this year’s Paris Motor Show.

Volkswagen has confirmed that the Mk7 version of its fuel-sipping Golf BlueMotion will easily best the current model’s fuel consumption and CO2 figures.
When Volkswagen launched its Polo and Golf BlueMotion models in South Africa, a few eyebrows were raised when the claimed fuel consumption figures were announced. We have since tested the Polo BlueMotion (check out our March 2011 issue) and can attest to the fact that, although not quite as frugal as VW claims, the smallest BlueMotion model certainly does impress with its minimal thirst. We estimate a range of over 1 000 kilometers between visits to the fuel pumps.
