Volkswagen Scirocco and Passat CC BlueMotionNovember 24, 2010
Both the Volkswagen Scirocco and Passat CC are now available as BlueMotion Technology models.
All entry-level Scirocco and GT trim models with the 2.0-litre 140 PS TDI engine now feature BlueMotion Technology modifications including Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems to help to create the cleanest and most fuel efficient Scirocco to date.
The models, available with a six-speed manual or optional six-speed DSG gearbox, offer savings through increased fuel economy, improved from 55.4 mpg to 62.8 mpg on the combined cycle (51.4 to 57.6 with the DSG option), and lower emissions, down from 134 g/km to 118 g/km (145 to 129 with DSG) to allow all BlueMotion Technology Sciroccos to drop two tax brackets over previous models.
Volkswagen has also announced revisions to the 2.0-litre TDI 170 PS engine fitted to the Scirocco GT, which result in fuel economy figures improving to 55.4 mpg from 53.3 mpg (50.4 to 51.4 with the DSG) and CO2 emissions reducing from 139 to 134 g/km (147 to 144 for DSG).
The Passat CC line-up has also been updated and sees BlueMotion Technology models join the range in place of existing diesel versions. As with the Scirocco range, the new additions to the Passat CC range have been modified to optimise efficiency and economy, with regenerative braking and Start/Stop systems fitted to the four-door coupé for the first time.
These revisions help the 2.0-litre TDI 140 PS Passat CC models achieve a combined 60.1 mpg, up from 50.4, and CO2 emissions are cut to just 125 g/km, down from 146 g/km. The more powerful 2.0-litre diesel engine in the range producing 170 PS also boasts improved figures with economy up to 57.6 mpg (51.4 with DSG) and emissions down to 129 g/km (144 with DSG).
Prices start from £22,800 for the Scirocco and £24,895 for the Passat CC BlueMotion Technology models, and they’re available to order now.
