Ideal for urban-based drivers, the Volkswagen Up! is a smart city-car with low running costs that contradict its premium feel and excellent ride quality. Motability Scheme members will benefit from the Up!’s compact proportions and nimble handling, while the interior is designed with comfort in mind.
The Volkswagen Up! is an ideal driving companion, with a distinctive look that exudes confidence. The striking rear design features a gleaming black tailgate complete with the iconic chrome insignia, and the front end’s slender bonnet and eye-catching spoiler enhances the futuristic aesthetic. Accessibility is excellent with the wide boot and this can be improved by adding swivel seats and a car boot hoist.
Settle into the well-built cabin and you’ll immediately benefit from the plush supportive seats and simple, streamlined layout. If you’re keen to accessorise your Up! as well as adapt it to suit your Motability needs, you can choose body-coloured panels to create a seamless effect. The glossy black steering wheel and dashboard are a stylish touch, while the ample space enhances the high quality feel throughout.
Combined with the car’s compact dimensions are big car features that add to the Up!’s usability. The boot offers 251-litres of load space, while the upper trim levels include split-folding rear seats to create nearly 1,000-litres of carrying capacity – which should give you plenty of room for mobility aids.
The refined three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engines come in a choice of 59bhp or 74bhp, with the larger-capacity unit offering more forceful acceleration while losing little in terms of economy. For outright pace, the High Up! model carries you from 0-62mph in just over ten seconds, while the 60PS Move trim level uses BlueMotion technology to return 68.9mpg combined and emits a money-saving 95g/km of CO2.
Perfectly-proportioned for navigating busy city streets, the Up! has limited body roll and its well-balanced frame makes for precise handling. A lightweight build compared to previous models also makes for an even more dynamic drive, with pin-sharp steering and soft suspension enhancing the superior ride quality. To help you have a safer and more comfortable driving experience you can add a variety of adaptations to the Up! including hand controls, electronic accelerators and steering aids.
This popular city-car reinforces Volkswagen’s reputation for building sturdy and durable vehicles that are well-equipped for keeping occupants safe. A five-star Euro NCAP safety rating marks the Up! as one of the safest small cars on the market, with a host of airbags giving you further peace of mind. All models arrive with ABS and child ISOFIX anchorages, while the optional emergency brake system scans the road for potential hazards.
