Volkswagen Up! Review

Compact by design but not compromising on style, the Volkswagen Up Packs a lot of punch and certainly shouldn’t be discounted if you’re looking for your next car. Here is our review of the Volkswagen up! And why we think it makes the perfect city car.

Starting off with the aesthetic, the boxy shape of the car gives it a quirky character and of course makes parking a lot easier. Angular corners make up the motor and inside we see clean lines and a simple cabin setup. The Up has everything you need inside including an infotainment system, there are a few different options of upgrades for this depending on the model. In addition, the car is spacious with plenty of leg room and headspace.

The drive of the car is designed for city living. Available in 60bhp or 75bhp, both versions with a three-cylinder, one-litre engine, it offers a nippy ride. Easy to drive with light steering and controls, the Up handles motorway driving surprisingly well and decidedly better than other cars in its class.

Running costs are minimal and you can see emissions as low as 100g/KM on some models. Insurance and servicing on the Volkswagen Up are also low in cost while you will also benefit from an economical engine and low fuel consumption.

Overall, the Volkswagen Up is a great city car that can also handle the demands of weekend exploring. It is spacious, sleek and offers great value for money. With a safety rating of 5/5 according to Euro NCAP, you’ll have peace of mind when driving around in your Up.
