The Volkswagen Scirocco and Passat CC are, without a shadow of doubt, the most interesting cars with VW badge! Now the Germans have added yet another great quality to the list of features for these models, and that’s superb efficiency. And this being Volkswagen means they get the BlueMotion technology for better fuel consumption with the least compromise on performance.

The Scirocco BlueMotion is based on the 2.0-litre 140 PS engine and comes with Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems to help to create the cleanest and most fuel efficient Scirocco to date.  It can be had with a six-speed manual or optional six-speed DSG gearbox.

The fuel economy for this model is significantly improved from 55.4 mpg to 62.8 mpg on the combined cycle (51.4 to 57.6 DSG), while the emissions are also reduced accordingly, down from 134 g/km to 118 g/km (145 to 129 DSG). The 2.0-litre TDI 170 PS engine fitted to the Scirocco GT is also tweaked recently to deliver 1 mpg better fuel economy!

The Passat CC also benefits from a BlueMotion engine, and that makes it one of the most interesting options for those looking for an exceedingly stylish four-door sedan with a super economical engine, lots of equipment and a fair price.

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 DSG) and emissions down to 129 g/km (144 DSG).
