Small, smart and with bags of personality, the new Volkswagen up! has been described by AutoExpress as ‘one of the best city cars about’. And it’s not hard to see why. With responsive engines, unrivalled agility and style to spare, it’s a true performer in every respect.
The main highlight of the up! is its ability to suit all tastes. A huge array of personalisation options means you have up to 1,000 colour combinations to choose from, a set of ambient lighting choices, and a range of dash and pad designs to select. It can be tailored to reflect your individuality, fitting perfectly into your own world.
Options aside, the up! is effortlessly chic, with its compact dimensions providing an agile drive and its new lighting signature making it recognisable from afar. With a five-door body, it’s easy to access, giving you the freedom to invite friends or family along for the ride.
Hop into your customised cabin and you’ll feel instantly at home. The Volkswagen up! may be small on the outside, but there’s plenty of room to stretch out, and you’ll accommodate four with ease. Relax into the comfy seats and stay firmly in control – not just of the road but of your media – with the optional multi-function steering wheel.
When you’re out and about at night, you can adjust the manually dimmable rear view mirror to take the glare off headlights behind, and with move up! trim and above, there’s air conditioning to make every ride more comfy.
The wide selection of trim levels enables you to choose an up! with the perfect amount of equipment. If you’re looking to keep things simple with a radio and CD player, opt for the take up!, while move up! models add a 5.0-inch screen and Bluetooth connectivity, enabling you to make and take calls on the go.
Choose up! beats for a ‘beats’ audio system with eight-channel amplifier, or step up to high up! to add a smartphone navigation interface for easy navigation from A to B. This trim also includes heated door mirrors and front fog lights with static cornering function.
The Volkswagen up! is certainly a nippy model, providing up to 90PS, which propels you from 0-62mph in just 9.9 seconds. That’s not at the expense of economy, however: all engines feature Stop/Start technology to save fuel as you wait in traffic, and with emissions as low as 95g/km, you can enjoy a cleaner drive. For the ultimate in green motoring, choose the e-up! - an all-electric model with a range of up to 83 miles.
City streets demand a ride that can deal with bumps, and thanks to its supple suspension, the up! delivers. It’s controlled and comfy when the road gets rough and glides along the motorway with ease, putting rivals to shame. Meanwhile, precise steering makes light work of manoeuvres and twisting roads, and taut body control makes it fun to drive at higher speeds.
Whether you’re happy with the basics or want the latest kit, the up! has you covered. All variants come with stability control, airbags, a rear fog light and ISOFIX anchor points, while Automatic Emergency Braking is an affordable option on most models. Choose the e-up! and this comes as standard. If you want to add more to your model, you can opt for the Cruise and Park pack, which adds rear parking sensors and cruise control.
