Bigger Than You Might Expect

The surprisingly spacious up! makes room for four travellers. The driver’s seat adjusts for height and the steering wheel is rake-and-reach-adjustable, allowing him or her to quickly get comfortable. If you decide to go with a three-door model, the front seats conveniently slide forwards to make access for rear-row passengers much simpler. The vehicle is heated and ventilated, and features a four-speed fan as standard. It also possesses power-operated front windows, so establishing an agreeable cabin temperature should never be a problem. Moreover, a heated rear windscreen makes light work of condensation and frost (and rear washer-wipers are fitted too). The up! possesses a 251-litre boot space and with rear seats folded, luggage capacity expands to a very decent 951 litres.


Sounds Good

Entry-level up! models come with a two-speaker sound system that includes a CD player and an AM/FM tuner – and DAB digital radio, which produces crystal-clear sound quality. AUX and SD inputs are included too, which make it easy to hook up a portable media device and connect a flash memory card. Next-level Move up! trims add four more speakers and USB and Bluetooth® connectivity. The latter is certainly worth having if you intend to use your smartphone when driving, because it allows you to make and receive hands-free calls. It also enables you to play your favourite tunes in the car by streaming audio content from your mobile.

Five-Star Protection FIND OUT MORE

Five-Star Protection

Crash-test specialist Euro NCAP has awarded the up! with a maximum five-star safety rating. The vehicle is fitted with a wide range of driver aids, including Electronic Stability Control and Anti-lock Braking System, which help to significantly minimise skidding. Hill-hold Assist features too, which prevents the up! from rolling forwards or backwards whenever the engine is started on a slope. Passengers are further protected by a number of passive safety features, such as three-point seat belts that feature pre-tensioners and load-limiters. The former tightens to prevent passengers from being flung forward in the event of a collision. In the same circumstances, the latter will restrict the amount of force applied to the body by the belt.


Onwards and upwards – the Volkswagen up!

The Volkswagen Up! sits atop Auto Express’ Best City Cars for 2018 list. High praise indeed. In fact, this stylish little vehicle has met with widespread critical approval, not least because it is far more practical than you might anticipate. This is despite the car’s diminutive dimensions, which ensure that it is ideal for navigating busy urban environments. The up! can be selected in three- or five-door body styles – and comes in Take up!, Move up!, up! Beats and High up! trim levels. There’s even an all-electric version: the e-up!

New Volkswagen up! Front

Small but Perfectly Formed

If you typically transport two or three passengers, a five-door model is certainly worth considering since it makes access for rear-row travellers all the more easy. All Volkswagen up! trim levels come in three- and five-door options, allowing you to select your ideal model. The vehicle is available in a wide range of colours too, including a Tornado Red paint finish, which is applied at no extra charge. Optional hues include Pure White, Deep Black, Honey Yellow and Teal Blue. Entry-level Take up! grades come with colour-keyed fixtures, such as bumpers – and door mirror shells that are finished in black, providing a smart contrast to the main body.

Move up! trims feature minimum-size 15-inch alloy wheels and body-coloured door handles and door mirrors. The same grades are also fitted with tinted glass, which takes the glare and heat out of intense sunshine.

A Very Efficient Little Car

The Volkswagen up! is typically fitted with a 1.0-litre 60bhp petrol engine, which manages up to 64.2mpg, while producing CO2 emissions as low as 101g/km. The same engine this time, with a power output of 90bhp – delivers the aforementioned fuel-efficiency and emissions figures. However, this option allows the car to go from 0-60mph in approximately 9.7 seconds, making it the quickest choice available for the up! Naturally, the most eco-friendly model is the e-up! This all-electric vehicle produces no emissions whatsoever and can be charged via a domestic power source – or one of a huge range of charging points throughout the UK and Ireland.
