Review

The Volkswagen Up offers plenty of choice to appeal to a wide market, including electric and hot-hatch variants. It combines fun driving manners with generous standard equipment, while a high-quality interior sets it apart from rivals such as the Kia Picanto. It’s a shame the entry-level engine is a little underpowered, though, and automatic emergency braking isn’t available.

The Up Beats is our recommended trim, and adds niceties such as ambient lighting, a multifunction steering wheel and an upgraded Beats audio system for not a great deal more money.
