Good to drive and relatively classy inside, the VW Up is a fine buy if you choose carefully

get the best price

Move Up models get electric front windows, a USB socket, a full-sized spare wheel, split-folding rear seats and a height-adjustable boot floor. We reckon this trim makes more sense than Take Up, although we’d still recommend going for High Up trim if you can afford it. Move Up trim is available only with the 59bhp entry-level engine.

The least powerful of the 1.0-litre petrol engines is officially slightly more economical than the 75 (74bhp) version, but acceleration is decidedly tardy. It’s available with a manual or automatic gearbox and, in economy-boosting stop-start (S/S) form, has sub-100g/km CO2 emissions.
