The up! is the latest, and smallest, model to be adorned with the famous GTI badge, giving drivers both young and not-so-young the chance to create (or recreate) great driving memories.
Following 42 years of GTI success, the up! GTI harks back to the 1976 Golf GTI Mk1 in both concept and power output. The up! GTI produces 115PS compared to the Mk1’s 110PS, and carefully judged dynamics see the new 1,070-kilogram up! GTI pay a modern day tribute to Volkswagen’s original hot hatch icon.
Starting from only £13750 and building on the already impressive base of the existing up!, the new GTI adds a 115PS 1-litre TSI three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, greater down force on the rear axle, sports running gear lowered by around 15mm compared to the standard car, and typical GTI insignia inside and out. The 999cc three cylinder 12v petrol engine offers up its 115PS power peak at 5,000 rpm – up to 5,500 rpm – while the punchy peak torque figure of 200 Nm arrives between 2,000 rpm and 3,500 rpm. The 8.8 second 0-62 mph time and top speed of 122 mph are firmly in-keeping with its iconic hot hatch predecessor.
Offered in three- or five-doors, and with a six-speed manual gearbox, the up! GTI promises engaging performance blended with the typically practical attributes of Volkswagen’s popular four-seat A00 city car.
