The new five door Volkswagen up! is now available to order with prices starting at £8360. This five-door range mirrors that of the three-door, with a choice of Take up!, Move up! and High up! models, plus the special edition up! Black and up! White.
Two BlueMotion Technology versions will also be available, offering sub-100 g/km CO2 emissions, and therefore avoiding VED. The 60 PS Move up! BlueMotion Technology returns 68.9 mpg on the combined cycle, while emitting just 95 g/km, and the 75 PS High up! BlueMotion Technology offers 67.3 mpg and 98 g/km.
The Volkswagen up! five door has wide opening rear doors and use of space in the car is extremely good due to the wheelbase
the boot is exceptional and increases when the rear seat is fully folded. The interior is colourful with a well organised layout with fun styling. The up! has received a five-star rating and the Advanced Award from Euro NCAP, the European New Car Assessment Programme. It is the first vehicle in this class to receive these awards.
A fully electric version will join the range in late 2013, and an automated manual gearbox will become optional later in 2012. The five door Volkswagen up is available to order now and UK deliveries are expected to start in August.
