TopGear awards the Volkswagen up!

TopGear magazine has announced the recipients of its 2011 Awards in its latest issue, and it’s good news for Volkswagen’s new up! model – even before it’s hit the showrooms.

The baby city car was handed the Small Car of the Year title, with the TopGear judges commenting: “It is the cleverest small car around today, the city car we know VW was capable of producing, the distilled essence of Volkswagen.”

Initially powered by a new three-cylinder 1.0 L petrol unit in either 44 kw/60 hp or 55 kw/75 hp guise, a 50 kW/68 hp natural gas model will follow soon, with an electric version also in the pipeline.

Volkswagen opened the up! order book last month, with prices starting at £7,995 (€ 9,309) for the 44 kw/60 hp Take up! model. Deliveries begin in March 2012.
