Volkswagen’s super-frugal Golf BlueMotion model has picked up its second successive What Car? Green Car of the Year award. The ceremony was held at London’s Battersea Power Station – also the home of the current EcoVelocity low-carbon auto show.

The Golf BlueMotion features a braking energy recovery system, start/stop function, low-rolling-resistance tyres, a more aerodynamic body package. The 105 PS 1.6-litre TDI engine transmits its power via a special long-ratio manual gearbox, capable of returning 74.3 mpg and just 99 g/km of CO2.

“The Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion shows that it is still possible to be green by simply improving the technology that is already proven and available at the moment,” said What Car?’s Chas Hallett.
