Volkswagen models, news & reviews

Nothing to do with four-wheel drive - or going fast. It’s Volkswagen’s ecological brand applied to the most efficient and economical models in each range, so probably should have been called Greenmotion. A Passat Bluemotion was unveiled at the Geneva show and other versions will follow.
According to Volkswagen, it will manage 72mpg, 9 mpg more than the next greenest Polo. Which means that even though the tank only holds a modest 45 litres of fuel, you could realistically expect to cover 700 miles between fills. And the 102g/km of CO2 it produces makes it even less harmful to the environment than the hybrid Toyota Prius. To ram the point home, VW flooded Geneva with 102 Polo Bluemotions during the recent motor show.

RE: VW Polo Bluemotion 1.4 TDi CAR review
Owning a 2006 Polo and driving it for the last 3 years, I can safely say it doesn't come close to its brand's reputation. Some of the plastics, like the B-Pillar or dashboard, rattles and comes apart. The Local dealer had to glue the B-pillar plastics back on! The engine broke down into the third year, after the two year warranty ended and one of the engine heads had to be replaced at an exorbitant cost. Except these serious ailments the car was fine.
To sum - stay away from this car.
