Previewing the latest offerings from Volkswagen

Volkswagen can be ranked as one of the top major car makers around the world today, having gone from strength to strength since its humble beginnings way back in 1936.

The original Beetle saw the German manufacturer cement its place on the global motoring scene, with its legacy only growing with the subsequent launches of the well-loved Golf, Polo and Jetta ranges.

In the months ahead, Volkswagen's star is only set to get brighter when the firm releases new vehicles in each of the three vehicle ranges.


Get the best of both worlds with the Volkswagen Polo BlueGT

Anyone who has had to go through the dilemma of picking their next set of wheels will have had to make a difficult decision of opting for a petrol or diesel engine.

Opt for the Volkswagen Polo BlueGT, however, and motorists will never need to worry about making this choice again.

While the vehicle packs Volkswagen's new EA211 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine under its bonnet, the motor stands out for being able to deliver the economy of a diesel engine.

This is evident when drivers glimpse over the car's capabilities. The turbocharged, four-cylinder engine can produce a maximum of 140 PS of power and up to 185 lbs/ft of torque. At the same time, the motor returns a fuel-efficient 61.4mpg on a combined cycle and limits CO2 emissions to a frugal 107g/km.

More important to the person behind the wheel about to hit the road, the Polo BlueGT is able to go from 0-62mph in 7.9 seconds and keep on going to reach a top speed of 130mph.

All this in a beautiful-looking car that features a striking black-painted front grille and black door mirror caps, before being finished off with a unique 'Blue Silk' exterior paintjob.

Seventh heaven for the new Volkswagen Golf

There is only one month to go until the seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf launches onto UK roads, and looks set to be one of the most-anticipated vehicle releases of 2013.

Since the last Golf became available, the king of the compact family class has faced a mighty challenge to retain its crown, what with the introduction of the latest BMW 1 Series and Ford Focus models.

However, the newest version of the Volkswagen Golf has put the brash contenders to the throne in their place by being the biggest, fastest and most efficient car of the series yet.

On top of this, drivers will find that all models of the seventh-generation Golf come packed with ABS with ESP and a XDS electronic differential lock. A total of seven airbags and five three-point seatbelts ticks the box where safety is concerned too.

Plus, the vehicle's entry-level Composition Media system has to be given a mention. This is the go-to piece of technology for accessing the car's DAB digital radio, CD player, MDI interface, Bluetooth telephone preparation and audio streaming  options.

The king truly is back on his throne.

  

Unmatched efficiency guaranteed with the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid

The Volkswagen Jetta originally appeared onto the motoring scene back in 1980 as a sedan version of the Golf.

Fast forward to the current generation and the all-new Jetta is continuing to break away from the shadow of the Golf and cement its own legacy on the vehicle manufacturing world.

This is evident with the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, which treats motorists with an economically-friendly car that is powered through a combination of a 1.4-litre 150 PS turbocharged petrol engine and a 20 kW electric motor.

When these pieces of technology work in tandem under the Jetta Hybrid's bonnet, drivers will see the car's power output reach a maximum of 170PS, deliver up to 184 lbs/ft of torque and achieve a fuel-efficiency rating of between 42 and 48mpg.

Being efficient has never being so rewarding.
