Volkswagen's Automated Sequential Gearbox (ASG) costs 595, and is available for three- and five-door versions of the Move Up and High Up, with the exception of Bluemotion Technology variants.
The ASG is an automated version of the manual five-speed 'box, where the gearbox chooses the optimum ratio for the current road conditions. Gearshifts can also be made manually, however, there's no steering wheel-mounted paddleshift option.
Compared with manual counterparts of the Up, the five-speed ASG models return lower CO2 emissions and improved average economy figures. For example, the Move Up three-door with ASG, extends average economy by 1.4mpg to 64.2, while CO2 emissions fall by 2g/km to 103g/km when compared with the manual version.
The new, efficient ASG gearbox is a 595 option for most VW Up Move Up and High Up models
