Volkswagen’s BlueMotion line up of cars launched the addition of the Touran and Sharan. Both vehicles have a 7-seat configuration. That’s enough to carry your family on a weekend getaway.
BlueMotion is the most efficient model in each of Volkswagen’s passenger car range. It comes with a series of minor modifications to the car’s body, drivetrain, engine and even the tires received some improvements in order to reduce strain on the engine and, in turn, reduce emissions and to economize fuel consumption.
Regarded as Volkswagen’s efficient model in carrying people, it has been modified with small changes in its engine, exterior design and drivetrain. BlueMotion’s tires have also received some makeovers to reduce damage to the engines that may result to great fuel efficiency and reduce emission of harmful fumes in the environment
Air ducts have been redirected into another direction to allow smoother airflow in front of the vehicle. Both vehicles have been lowered in order to reduce air drag. Compound tires have been incorporated to decrease resistance in rolling.
The gearbox has been modified also. A PS engine built with a turbocharger to increase efficiency for Touran and a 2.0-litre 140 PS TDI in the Sharan. A Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and oxidation catalyst are also added to reduce nitrogen and carbon units to near zero. This will result into a fuel economy of 52.3 mpg for BlueMotion’s Touran respectively. And 47.1 mpg for BlueMotion’s Sharan. Carbon dioxide emissions to the environment are decreased to 144 g/km for Touran model and 159 g/km for Sharan model. That makes these cars eco-friendly.
Touran and Sharan are also equipped with a CD stereo for audio entertainment and air conditioning. Also, safety is guaranteed and it is accompanied in the features with six airbags inside.
