Vehicle Description

With a large assortment of awards to its name (including World Car of the Year), it is no surprise that the Volkswagen Up has a reputation as one of the best - if not the best - supermini on the road. Having been fortunate enough to spend a few days driving a similar car it is very easy to see why. I’ll start with the engine. This car has the 1 litre, three cylinder, 74 bhp petrol engine. It easily sees an average of around 60 mpg without even trying meaning that petrol stations will be a rare visit. With tax of just £20 a year and falling into the lowest insurance group, the Up is ideal for all drivers both new and old alike. Despite only having 74 horsepower, I was very pleasantly surprised at how perky it felt both in and out of town. It competently dealt with motorways and the fast, steep roads up on the moors without having to be overworked. The engine was also very quiet and smooth, offering big car refinement at a fraction of the cost. It was also very comfortable; lumps and bumps were absorbed with aplomb. To quote Whatcar “it rides in a much more sophisticated fashion than most of its city car rivals”. Don’t be fooled into thinking that it will be poor in the bends though. The direct steering inspires confidence and the excellent body control makes for a surprisingly fun drive. On the inside, the Up maintains its high levels of quality and refinement. As a Volkswagen, it feels premium and very well made without even trace of a rattle. There is a large boot for a car of this size meaning shopping bags are easily dealt with. There is also lots of space throughout the cabin, there is easily space for four fully grown adults. The grey and red cloth seats are comfortable and supportive, with plenty of adjustment in the drivers seat. Visibility is excellent, the large windows and slim pillars making manoeuvring a doddle with the square shape making placing the Up on the road easy too. On the outside, this Up is finished in a charming bright red. It looks modern and stylish, its angular design really making this little VW a handsome car. This particular top of the range car has a wide range of equipment including: bluetooth, air conditioning, remote central locking, a radio CD player with mp3 connectivity and much more. This 2 owner vehicle comes with service history, warranty and 12 months MOT, as well as coming fully serviced upon purchase. I cannot convey how impressed I am with this VW UP - it offers quality, fun, frugality and so much more all in one well priced package. To quote Whatcar once more “The VW Up is one of the best city cars around”. Any Inspection Welcome.
