The Golf BlueMotion is one of the most efficient and low CO2 emitting cars currently on sale in Europe. To test just how efficient, CAR Magazine recently embarked on a unique road trip, taking the Golf BlueMotion out of its normal environment. CAR Magazine's Assistant Editor and a photographer set out to cross America from Miami to Los Angeles driving entirely normally. The road trip lasted ten days, crossed seven states and took in a total of 3,144 miles on a mix of interstates and winding back roads as well as occasional jaunts into thick urban traffic. On arriving in Los Angeles, the Golf BlueMotion was found to have consumed just 120 of diesel in the course of the trip equating to driving from Edinburgh to Rome and back again.
