Volkswagen UP Is The Latest City Car From VW

The only way is up!

That’s what Volkswagen reckons of its new city car, called the up!, which replaces the Fox and is promising to blend clever technology and a luxurious feel to a small package.

A VW spokesman said of the new arrival, which has made its debuted at September’s Frankfurt Motor show:

“The up! is an entirely new design, offering maximum space on a minimal footprint, making it ideal for driving in the world’s cities. It will be launched in Europe in December.”

When it arrives in the UK there will be three versions: the take up! is the entry-level car, move up! The comfort-oriented model and high up! The range-topping version. In size and shape it’s more reminiscent of the Lupo city car from a decade ago than the Fox, Volkswagen’s most recent city car contender.

Details on the up!’s pricing and specification is due to be revealed later this autumn.
