Volkswagen up! named What Car? Of the Year 2012

The new Volkswagen up! has claimed top honours at the What Car? awards being named Car of the Year for 2012

The new Volkswagen up! has claimed top honours at the What Car? awards being named Car of the Year for 2012. The Volkswagen up! is available to order now and will arrive in showrooms this coming March.

Commenting on the awards, What Car? Editor-in-chief Chas Hallett said ‘the Volkswagen up! sets new standards for a car at £10,000.  It’s a city car that can seat four adults, while offering new levels of refinement, quality and maturity at this price; none of its rivals feels quite so grown-up.  Buyers will be looking for even more for their money than ever in 2012, so the up! is a worthy winner of the What Car? Car of the Year.’

The Volkswagen up! is available with two 1.0 litre three cylinder petrol engine options as well as a BlueMotion technology version. It has three doors and three trim levels; Take up!, Move up! and High up! plus a special edition the up! black and up! white. Prices start at £7995.
