The Up Beats is all about enjoying your music. It's based on Move Up trim but adds a 300W, seven-speaker sound system with a subwoofer for punchier bass. You also get the upgraded 5.0in colour infotainment system from High Up, along with 15in alloys and plenty of bespoke styling touches.

This 74bhp engine feels a bit gutsier than the 59bhp engine. However, it still struggles to keep up with fast-moving traffic, especially when hills are thrown into the mix. It could be had with a manual or automatic gearbox, and in High Up or Up Beats trim.
