Good to drive and relatively classy inside, the VW Up is a fine buy if you choose carefullyget the best price
Trim: High Up
High Up trim gets you a lot of kit for your money, so it's our favourite. This includes as standard 15in alloy wheels, air conditioning, Bluetooth, heated front seats, electrically operated and heated door mirrors, extra speakers for the stereo, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearlever, and front foglights. This trim level is available only with the 74bhp and 89bhp engines.
Engine: 1.0 60PS
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.
