Should I buy one?
There’s still more than a year to go until the Volkswagen Up GTI goes into production, but we’ve learnt enough from this prototype drive to be rather excited.
Of course, it isn’t eye-wateringly fast, but it has enough power to entertain on the straights and sharp enough handling to put a smile on your face through the corners.
The price – as yet unrevealed – will be key of course, and early indications suggest the Up will cost a bit more than the Suzuki Swift Sport. However, it should undercut more powerful rivals such as the Ford Fiesta ST by a sizeable margin.
