Volkswagen will begin taking orders for the first-ever petrol version of the Polo BlueMotion today, ahead of first UK deliveries in March, with prices starting from £14,730 (RRP OTR).
The greenest petrol engine in the range is powered by a 1.0-litre BlueMotion TSI petrol unit. It emits 94 g/km of CO2 and returns 68.9 mpg on the combined cycle.
Delivering 95 PS between 5,000 and 5,500 rpm the new three-cylinder engine is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The Polo BlueMotion has a maximum torque of 118 Nm (160 lbs ft) produced between 1,500 and 3,500 rpm.
Efficiency does not come at the expense of performance. The Polo BlueMotion will reach 62 mph from a standing start in 10.5 seconds and has a top speed of 119 mph.
This 1.0-litre BlueMotion TSI petrol 95 PS engine joins the three-cylinder diesel 1.4-litre TDI BlueMotion engine that produces 75 PS, returns 91.1 mpg and emits just 82 g/km of CO2.
The BlueMotion models are available to order now with first deliveries expected in March.
