VW Scirocco to go 'green'

2009-08-14 10:59

Volkwagen is to introduce a BlueMotion version of its Scirocco coupe.

Over the next few years VW will be expanding its eco-brand to new models and the Scirocco will be its first "sportier" vehicle to get "green" credentials.

Such as Scirocco will come with a small diesel engine - possibly the same 1.6-litre TDI used the Golf BlueMotion - with the usual eco tweaks, including optimised aerodynamics, gear ratios and low rolling resistance tyres, to improve fuel economy and CO2 emissions.

It is also rumoured that the Tiguan and Passat CC will also have BlueMotion derivatives added to their ranges.
