The Polo BlueMotion Mk V adopts an all-new highly advanced 1.2-litre TDI three-cylinder common rail diesel engine developing 75 PS, and 133lbs ft (180 Nm) of torque available from just 2,000rpm. This new engine, combined with longer gearing through the five-speed manual gearbox, regenerative braking and an automatic Start/Stop system, helps the Polo BlueMotion Mk V emit just 91g/km of CO2 while returning an impressive 80.7mpg on the combined cycle. This grants the Polo BlueMotion Mk V a theoretical range of over 800 miles on one tank of diesel. These technological enhancements are accompanied by several cosmetic changes designed to maximise efficiency. Comprising bespoke bumpers, side skirts and an extended roof spoiler along with 15-inch 'Greenland' alloy wheels fitted with low rolling resistance tyres, they contribute towards making the Polo BlueMotion Mk V among the most efficient vehicles currently available in the UK.
