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

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.

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.
