The supermini is an ever popular and ever growing segment of todays market. The little cars that bound around our cities often offer good value, great economy, and in many cases a good drive. Competition levels in this class are high but VW think that for their new car the only way is UP!
The VW Up!, yes the exclamation mark is part of its name, is the realization of several concept cars before it. Arriving in Europe in December the little car is powered by a 1.0 litre 3 cylinder engine producing either 59 or 74BHP dependent upon what variant you choose. Seating four, the Up! comes with a new collision avoidance system that will automatically stop the car before a collision under 18MPH. There are three trim levels available; the Take Up!, the Move Up! and the top spec High Up!
