Good to drive and relatively classy inside, the VW Up is a fine buy if you choose carefullyget the best price
The all-electric version of the Up is expensive on paper, although you do get a government grant to lower the cost. It’s more appealing on a lease deal or as a company car, though – the latter due to sizeable tax breaks. The e-Up has typical electric car limitations, in this case a maximum claimed range of 99 miles (realistically, it'll be more like 70 miles), so you’ll need to scrutinise your lifestyle carefully before deciding if it suits you. It’s well equipped, mind, with climate control, heated front seats, rear parking sensors and a heated windscreen all standard.
