The Volkswagen Up! is a funky and bold city car. It combines low running costs with a fun and enjoyable drive. Volkswagen’s designers have managed to break new ground in this segment of the car market, creating a compact, fuel efficient and environmentally friendly vehicle, that also offers style, space and comfort.
At a compact 3.54 meters long and 1.64 meters wide, the Up! will fit comfortably into even the smallest parking spaces. The cheeky headlamps, grille and front bumper give this city car a fun and distinctive character, which can be emphasised further by the wide selection of nine colour choices – including a sophisticated Silver Metallic, a sleek Blue Metallic, a fun Mayan Blue and a striking Sunset Orange.
The interior of the cabin is spacious enough to fit four fully-sized adults with adequate headroom and legroom. The car also features a cleverly designed boot space and split-folding rear seats, which fold one down so you can have room for one passenger and extra storage space. The boot floor has two different levels for maximum storage space or a level loading area. With the rear seats up the boot holds an impressive 251 litres; with the seats down completely there is 951 litres of space – an eyebrow-raising figure for such a compact vehicle.
The Up! comes with a choice of three 1.0 litre petrol engines. The entry-level 60PS version is accompanied by a BlueMotion engine which produces carbon emissions under 100 g/km and a more powerful 75PS; even the latter emits only 108 g/km of CO2 and delivers combined fuel economy of 60.1mpg. The largest number of road accidents take place on urban and suburban roads, and the (optional) City Emergency Braking system enables you to avoid low-speed crashes or to reduce their severity.
At speeds of up to 19mph, a sensor monitors an area of ten metres in front of the car and identifies vehicles that may present a threat of a collision. If an accident looks to be imminent the emergency brake is pressed automatically, bringing you to a halt in time to avoid harm to yourself or other road users. The Up! can also feature an Electronic Stability Control system that will help bring your vehicle back under control if you need it. There are also rear parking sensors to make parking quicker and easier.
For entertainment, there is the infotainment device that includes voice-activated navigation and Bluetooth telephone functions that is displayed on a 5" colour touchscreen. If you are interested in the Volkswagen up! then contact us today at JCT600 for more information or to arrange a test drive.
