The Volkswagen up! is like no other small car. Spirited, edgy and seriously fun, the up! has charisma and drive that knocks spots off of its competitors.
The small car status belies the big, bold character of the up! In every way, the up! exceeds expectations. For example, with its surprisingly spacious boots space. Big enough for luggage or a buggy, it’s extremely practical. Inside, USB connectivity and a smartphone navigation interface make every journey more pleasurable and the interior is in line with the quality you would expect from Volkswagen, which is superb. Everything is well assembled and stylish. Statement dashpads and high quality fabrics feature in every edition and with no less than six available, there is something to suit every personality. All come with alloy wheels, air conditioning and smartphone integration as standard. The ‘Beats’ edition adds a 6 speaker sound system with amplifier and subwoofer. The ‘White’ has flashes of modern white paintwork, 16” La Boca white alloy wheels and a white cube dash, or the ‘Black’ edition switches all those white features for black. The ‘R-Line’ features low sports suspension and heated seats, and ‘GTI’ adds 17” alloy wheels and ambient lighting to the mix. With 3 door options now available too, you can configure it to achieve your perfect city car.
The up! has the exceptional build you would expect from Volkswagen, with layers of technology and innovations building it up to supreme city car level. From the most economical petrol engine, the 1.0 S/S 60 PS with 5-speed gearbox, you can expect CO2 emissions of just 100 g/km2. For performance, the GTI 1.0 TSI 115 PS with 6-speed gearbox is surprisingly powerful and can achieve 0-62mph in just 8.8 seconds. There’s no doubt that the agility that comes from being a compact car mixed with that kind of power makes for an exciting drive! For eco-aware customers, the all electric e-up! is emissions free but happily retains all the power and fun of other models. Plus with a range of up to 162 miles and easy charging options, there’s plenty of reasons to consider it.
