New 130PS VW Golf 1.5 TSI Bluemotion Micro-Hybrid Offers Diesel-Like Efficiency

The engine itself also features a turbocharged with variable turbine technology (VTG) and runs on the Miller combustion process. VW’s optimized valvetrain control with early closure of the inlet valves combined with the higher compression and turbocharging allows it to return up to 10 percent better fuel efficiency when combined with a similarly powered petrol engine.

VW will offer the 1.5 TSI ACT Bluemotion powertrain to more models, as well as introduce further derivatives of the powertrain in global markets, including with fewer cylinders and smaller engine displacement. The new VW Golf 1.5 TSI ACT Bluemotion is available now in Europe, in both hatchback and Variant bodystyles.
