Volkswagen opens up the up! order book

Volkswagen UK has begun taking orders for the company’s new up! model. All versions are powered by a new 1.0 L three-cylinder petrol engine, with prices starting at £ 7,995 (€ 9,260) for the 60 PS Take up!. Standard specification includes body-coloured bumpers, daytime running lights, the new RCD 215 CD radio with aux-in, and 14-inch steel wheels.

For £ 8,970 (€ 10,390), the Move up! has the same 60 PS engine, but enjoys remote central locking, electric front windows, air conditioning and 60:40 split/fold rear seats. Externally, you’ll find body-coloured door handles and mirrors. An extra £360 gets you BlueMotion Technology, which includes a Stop/Start system, battery regeneration and low rolling resistance tyres, resulting in an expected 67.2 mpg (up from 62.7 mpg), and a reduced CO2 figure of 97 g/km (down from 105 g/km), allowing it to dodge road tax costs.

The 75 PS High up! will set you back £ 10,390 (€ 12,035). Very little money for a car that features heated front seats, electrically heated and adjustable mirrors, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel, gear lever and handbrake grip. The removable Maps & More personal infotainment device provides navigation, telephone duties, information and entertainment – all controlled via a touchscreen. Visually, the High up! is fitted with front fog lights and 15-inch alloy wheels.

Finally, two special editions, the up! black and up! white are finished in deep black pearl or pure white metallic paint, and feature chrome door mirror caps and door side strips and 16-inch alloy wheels. The centre of the wheels are painted to match the car’s exterior, as is the dashboard. The rest of the cabin includes exclusive ‘stripes’ upholstery and mats. These specials come in at £ 11,180 (€ 12,950).

If you’d rather put your own model together, Volkswagen offers a wide range of extras, including such items as remote central locking, electric front windows, chrome pack, 16-inch alloy wheels, sports suspension, parking sensors, cruise control, and the Driver’s assistance pack, which includes the City Emergency Braking. This system, which is active at speeds up to 18 mph, uses a laser sensor to detect potential collisions and can avoid crashes by applying the brakes automatically.
