Dinky, dynamic and desirable, the Volkswagen up! GTI is an automotive pocket rocket that has more strings to its bow than pace and agility.
The car’s compact dimensions ensure that it can easily thread through traffic and slot into the most bijou of parking spaces.
The VW up! GTI, however, is no mere city car. The GTI badge alone – found on the front grille and front wings, for example – marks this up! variant out as something special.
This racy automobile rides on black-diamond-tuned alloy wheels, and features a number of other grade-specific exterior features, such as a gloss-black tailgate spoiler and GTI bumpers and front air intakes.
Inside, front-row travellers are treated to tartan-upholstered sports seats that feature striking Jacara Red accents. The sporty theme continues with, for instance, a three-spoke leather steering wheel that is leather-trimmed and features the GTI emblem at its centre, complete with red contrast stitching.
Also included is a GTI gear knob, unique to this particular model, which is also embellished with crimson detailing.
A six-speaker audio system is installed, and ready to soundtrack your every journey, while a hands-free navigation system ensures that getting where you need to be is never an issue.
In addition to AUX, USB and SD inputs, the up! GTI features Bluetooth connectivity, which facilitates music streaming and hands-free telephone communication.
Thanks to a sports suspension that is 1.5 centimetres closer to the ground than is found with other up! trim levels, the GTI makes cornering at speed as effortless as can be.
Moreover, the car’s 1.0-litre 113bhp petrol engine provides plenty of poke: 200Nm of torque and 0-60mph in approximately nine seconds.
