In order to reduce their average fuel consumption and emissions even further, VW is now offering a BlueMotion variant for the new 2011 Touran MPV. Powered by a 1.6 liter TDI engine, the Touran BlueMotion manages to average 4.6 litres per 100km which is astonishing for a car of this size and function.

Of course this being an economy-minded model you don’t expect it to deliver very good performance, and well, it doesn’t! This engine only generates 77 kW / 105 PS, but in return it only emits 121 g/km CO2.

VW also offers the new Touran with a 1.2-litre TSI turbocharged direct injection engine with the same 105 PS, but that averages 6.4 liter per 100 km and 149 g/km Co2.This engine, when equipped with BlueMotion Technology – together with the Start/Stop system and battery regeneration, does 5.9 l/100 km and 139 g/km.

Other powertrain options for the new Touran include a natural gas engine (TSI EcoFuel), three petrol ones (TSI) and four diesels (TDI), with performance ranging from 66 kW / 90 PS to 125 kW / 170 PS.
