Rating: 4/5

The Golf BlueMotion uses the Polo TDI engine and incorporates the tools of traditional hybrids without actually being one – it uses stop-start engine technology, low-resistance tyres, regenerative braking and windcheating aerodynamics.

All of which contribute to making it the most fuel-efficient in its class and the most fuel-efficient Golf so far without screaming ‘‘I’m green!’’

Good idea.
