Volkswagen’s up! set a benchmark for the modern city-car; combining outstanding practicality with stylish looks, compact size and refined ride. At 3.5 metres long and 1.6 metres wide, the up! is modestly sized even for a small city car. The ingenious design, however, means that it is also exceptionally strong and spacious. There are 251 litres of storage space available, and this increases to a class-leading 951 litres with the rear seats folded.
The exciting new up! beats joins the city car family – an effortlessly stylish model which includes some stunning features. On the exterior, the car comes with 15-inch Radial alloy wheels, colour coded wing mirrors, side decals and ‘beats’ logo on the A-pillars. On the inside there is the specially designed dash-pad, again with the ‘beats’ logo, special beats upholstery, and a 300-watt ‘beats’ sound system created in conjunction with the Californian electronics company Beats Audio.
The new up! celebrates individuality. With more than a thousand potential combinations, the up! shines a spotlight on your personality. A choice of thirteen body colours; plus choices for the door mirrors, roof, alloy wheels and inside dashpad lets you create a look that is 100% you. Complimenting your personalised look, the new up! is enhanced by a sharp new design featuring new bumpers, wheels, LED daytime running lights and mirror housings with integrated indicators, not to mention a host of refinements and new equipment.
