The award-winning Volkswagen Up!

Driving in the Volkswagen up! is satisfying on a number of levels. Itís a chic and stylish car, with a funky design and a punchy engine, and itís small size allows it to fit into the tightest of spaces in the city.


The Volkswagen Up! has won a variety of awards over the years, including the prestigious What Car? Car of the Year 2012 prize and you when you see it for yourself in a showroom you will understand why.†

A brand new design language ensures that the up!ís bodylines are crisp and clean, and its roofline aerodynamic. Front fog lights improve visibility on higher spec models, and the alloy wheels are lightweight and durable. Drivers wonít miss the Volkswagen badge sitting proudly on the carís bonnet, and the individual appeal is emphasised by swept-back headlights.

The Volkswagen up! has a compact frame to allow for agile driving - yet the carís interior doesnít lack space. Motorists can adjust the steering column to their ideal driving position, and the rear seats are 60/40 split, allowing you to store more luggage if necessary. The carís in-car infotainment is similarly impressive, with manual air conditioning as standard, an optional Maps & More system for navigation and an RCD Radio/CD Player.

Another feature which has contributed to the up!ís popularity is its customisability. Drivers can choose from a variety of colour schemes and the following trim levels: Take up!, Move up!, High up!, Groove up! and Rock up!. The models all share one petrol engine, and itís a powerful 1.0-litre unit, capable of close to 75bhp. From a standing start you can reach 60mph in just 13.2 seconds, allowing you to pick up the kids in record time. The engine can be supplemented with BlueMotion technology, which makes combined fuel economy of 68.9mpg attainable, alongside CO2 emissions from just 95g/km.

With tax-busting emissions, cost-cutting fuel economy and a sharp turn of pace, the Volkswagen up! is an excellent urban all-rounder, and itís a particularly safe car too. Children are kept secure with ISOFIX child seat anchorage points, ABS is standard to offer more stopping power, and crumple zones are built into the carís frame. If a collision does occur, airbags are deployed - and off the road the up! is guarded by an electronic engine immobiliser.

The Volkswagen up! is a sought-after model, why not come and see why at Martins Volkswagen showrooms in Andover, Basingstoke, Camberley or Farnham and complete a test drive, and to take ownership of your own smart city car.
