The Volkswagen Up! is certainly the smallest car offered by the German manufacturer, yet its premium feel and sophisticated driving style mean this city slicker packs a real punch.
Whether you go for three or five doors, this affordable city car maintains a strong sense of style. The head-on appearance is enhanced by bold bumpers with integrated cornering lights, plus bright LED daytime running lights.
The Up! is more customisable than ever. Choose from 13 paint colours, nine exterior decals and three roof colours to suit your individual style. Upgrade to the High Up trim to get sleek alloys.
A classy dashboard sets the scene in the cabin – you can pick one of 10 designs. Glossy black inserts and stylish metallic detailing create a refined finish. Controls are logically arranged for each of use – including a removable touchscreen sat-nav in upgraded models. An ambient light option is available in higher trims.
There’s space for four in the cabin, with ample of head and legroom for all. The 251-litre boot is one of the largest in this class, with room for a suitcase or shopping. Flexible rear seats fold down in two pieces, so you can transport long loads with one back-seat passenger on board.
The Up! is good fun to drive and boasts excellent road-handing abilities. The option of larger wheels and sports suspension mean it’s just as comfortable zipping through the city streets as it is on the open road.
The main engine is a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol with 59bhp, 74bhp or the latest turbocharged 89bhp version. It’s economical, with all models returning at least 60mpg on the combined cycle. Road tax will cost you a maximum of £20.
The electrically powered e-Up is an alternative option. It’s the speediest Up! to drive and provides the lowest running costs of the lot.
A maximum five-star Euro NCAP rating gives you total confidence behind the wheel. It’s a rating that few class rivals can match. Every trim is fitted with a top-class stability control system, which helps you maintain control in tricky conditions. Front and side airbags as standard provide all-round protection.
The entry-level Take Up model comes with a CD player and DAB digital radio. The next-level Move Up adds electric front windows, air-con and central locking, while the High Up features heated front seats, Bluetooth connectivity and handy sat-nav.
