The VW Up is one of the best city cars on sale. It manages to offer a more spacious interior than most of its rivals, and stands out as the more premium option when compared with its sister models, the Seat Mii and Skoda Citigo.
There’s a three-door version for those more concerned about style, but, should you regularly carry rear passengers, you can also have it with rear doors.
True, the Up can’t quite match the practicality of the Hyundai i10, but it’s better to drive, and, while it costs more to buy than many other city cars – particularly if you go for the high-spec model that we recommend – it will hold its value better than them, too.
Read on for everything you should know about the Volkswagen Up before buying one, including which engine and trim to go for.
