Volkswagen Retailers in the UK will begin taking orders for the first-ever petrol version of the Polo BlueMotion, ahead of first UK deliveries in March, priced from £14,730.
The greenest petrol engine in the range is powered by a 1.0-litre BlueMotion TSI petrol unit. It emits 94g/km of CO2 and returns 68.9mpg on the combined cycle.
Based on the S trim, the BlueMotion models add equipment including a styling pack which includes uniquely shaped front and rear bumpers, radiator grille, side skirts and rear roof spoiler, body coloured door handles, body coloured door mirrors with integrated indicators, front fog lights and static cornering function and BlueMotion badging.
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 91.1mpg and emits 82g/km of CO2. The diesel model is priced from £15,795.
All Polo models come with a colour touchscreen, SD card reader, DAB radio and USB and AUX-in connections, as well as a height-adjustable driver’s seat.
