The Winner of Best City Car - The Volkswagen Up!

The Volkswagen Up! is known as a compact car and although some might prefer a larger vehicle this brilliant VW has now been voted he best city car. Starting off it’s journey as something many people thought of as a first car choice for learners has now become something more of a icon within the Volkswagen range. On city streets across the nation you are bound to find one of these fabulous cars pop up.

The Design

Compact and built to last these cars may seem quite the cute little accessory but with the German aesthetic still ingrained within everything they build so it is serious contender on the road. The angular shape of the exterior makes for a safe and streamlined silhouette, whilst the interior is practical, and accessible. Select your colour from a wide range of choices to make your Up! reflect your personality.

The Drive

The up! is brilliant fun to drive down a back road, while remaining comfortable on a cruise and absorbing all but the biggest bumps in town. The shape of the car lend itself to a perfect outer to brave those winter roads and Aberdeen’s notorious pot holes.

The Engine

All models are fitted with a 1.0-litre petrol engine as standard, which is paired with five-speed manual transmission. Volkswagen Take up!, Volkswagen Move up! and Volkswagen up! beats grades offer a power output of 59bhp. High up! trims, meanwhile, provide a choice of 74bhp and 89bhp units, which are also options with up! beats grades. GTI trims, on the other hand, are powered by a 113bhp engine, which is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. Variants installed with a 59bhp unit return as much as 64.2mpg and produce CO2 emissions as low as 101g/km. Optimal performance levels are provided by the up! GTI, which delivers 200Nm of torque and 0-60mph in roughly 8.6 seconds.
