Trim: Take Up

Entry-level Ups aren’t blessed with much equipment. Steel wheels, LED running lights, remote central locking, a DAB radio and a CD player are included, but air-con isn’t on the list. Take Up trim is available only with the 59bhp entry-level engine.

Engine: 1.0

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.
