New special editions for Volkswagen Up
- New Groove Up and Rock Up editions
- Premium sound system or bodykit on offer
- On sale now, with first deliveries in July
Two special-edition versions of the Volkswagen Up have been introduced. The Groove Up adds a premium sound system, while the Rock Up brings a full bodykit.
Both cars are based on High Up specification, so come with the 74bhp 1.0-litre engine. They use the five-speed manual gearbox and do average economy of 60.1mpg, with CO2 emissions of 108g/km.
Volkswagen's Maps and More sat-nav system is standard equipment, along with air-conditioning, heated front seats and remote central locking. Both cars have 16-inch alloys.
The main selling point for the Groove Up is the upmarket Fender sound system that comes with six speakers, a subwoofer and a 300-watt amplifier. It also has a leather-trimmed steering wheel, gearknob and handbrake with orange stitching, as well as unique black seats with orange edging. It is available in three- or five-door form.
The Rock Up gets a bodykit, which includes gloss black front and rear spoilers, sideskirts and rear diffuser. A thick anthracite strip runs along the middle of the bonnet, roof and tailgate, while the door mirrors are either gloss black or chrome depending on paint choice. In-car entertainment matches the Groove Up with the exception of the Fender sound system. The Rock Up is only available as a three-door model.
Optional equipment includes Volkswagen’ City Emergency Braking system, rear parking sensors, cruise control and – on the five-door Groove Up – a panoramic glass sunroof.
Starting prices are £11,640 for the three-door Groove Up, £12,015 for the five-door Groove Up, and £12,980 for the Rock Up. Both editions are available to order now, with the first deliveries expected in July.
