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.get the best price
The electric e-Up only comes in one level, but comes with plenty of equipment as standard, with heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, parking sensors and a rear-view camera all included.
The e-Up certainly feels a lot quicker than its official 0-62mph time of 11.9sec suggests; you won’t have much trouble beating other traffic away from the lights should you wish to. Top speed is limited to 82mph to preserve the car’s electric range, though, and acceleration at motorway speeds is rather more gradual.
