With its usual name, the VW Up! is a small city car which offers great performance in an all-round winning package. It's also affordable and great fun to drive.
There's a choice of two petrol engines, both are 1.0 litre, for the Volkswagen Up! Though they have different power outputs. The more powerful option offers better performance, particularly at speed on a motorway for instance and is cheap to run by returning 60 mpg.
There's the option of buying a more economical engine with the BlueMotion, which should return 67 mpg though it costs slightly more to buy.
With its small dimensions, the Up! Is great fun to drive with responsive steering and lots of agility. It's comfortable to drive around town and the suspension makes long journeys in the car a pleasant place to be.
The interior has more room than many would believe, though the five door model would be a practical choice. The boot, as expected, isn't that big but it is one of the biggest available in the city car segment and the split folding rear seat allows drivers to create more space when necessary.
With three trim levels, and various special editions, the VW Up! has different levels of equipment which, depending on the model, includes air con, satnav, heated front seats and alloy wheels. Safety equipment includes anti-lock brakes, electronic stability and traction control, tyre pressure monitor and hill hold assist.
Essentially, the VW Up! Is an affordable city car and one of the best in this fiercely fought segment with an interior that is spacious and a drive that is comfortable thanks to its suspension.
