Product Overview

Volkswagen Up! facelift is an entry-level subcompact hatchback in production from 2016. It is available with a range of inline-3 engines that displaced 1.0 liters.
Compared to the pre-facelift model, the facelift brought marginal updates. It has a basic mechanical setup and is not designed for high speed, long distance, or longevity.
The Volkswagen Up is limited to inline-3, which has horrible NVH performance and durability, a legacy of modern-day regulations.

Sentiment Score 63%
Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The car’s 1.0-litre turbo triple has lots of mid-range poke and a likable willingness to work. Being so short and light, the car changes direction very freely, although with a little bit of roll and only a medium-high grip level. A more typical hot supermini feels more adhesive and naturally agile, but the Up communicates its limits well and makes driving up to them more engrossing than many would think.

Pros
  • Looks and feels good
  • Lots of fun to drive
Cons
  • No automatic gearbox
  • Pricier than the original

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
A shame that this was chosen to be the sole survivor of the trio, because it can be painfully slow. Acceleration from 0-62mph takes 14.9sec, and that’s if you’ve got your foot to the floor and redlining it in every gear. Performance is, however, acceptable in town, where surely it matters most for a car of this kind. Even almost a decade on from its launch, the Up remains a completely competent city car.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent standard equipment
  • Decent handling
Cons
  • Pricier than rivals
  • Boot is a bit piddly

Volkswagen Up GTI goes on sale in the UK from £13,750. Uprated suspension works a treat, body roll is contained and the ride is generally absorbent when travelling at speed. With 147lb ft of torque on tap from 2000rpm the engine has a muscular feel.

The Volkswagen up! is more sophisticated than its size and looks suggest. It's comfortable, feels stable on the road and is enjoyable to drive. Power comes from a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine producing 64bhp. All cars get a five-speed manual gearbox as standard, except for the up! GTI.

VW has relaunched its smallest hot hatchback for 2020 with minor tweaks. The up! is eight years old now, but the GTI model looks clean and fresh. It has 17-inch alloy wheels, red detailing on the grille, brake calipers and GTI logo. As before, it's available in both three- and five-door bodystyles.

Pros
  • More fun to drive
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • Slightly fidgety steering
  • Struggles with stability control

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The up! has a simple, stylish cabin enhanced with a red design graphic across the main central sweep of the dash. The seats are finished in ‘Jacara Red’ cloth tartan trim that's similar to that found on the rest of the GTI range. There's no steering reach adjustment but there's enough seat movement for the driver to get comfortable, and in the back there's decent headroom for tall adults. All Volkswagens come with a three-year/60,000-mile warranty.

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The up! is the priciest of the VW Group's city car trio to buy. It's also the slowest to depreciate - that's the power of the ‘premium’ VW badge. Like its siblings, the up!'s driving manners just eclipse anything else in this class.

Pros
  • Punchy up! GTI with 113bhp
  • Lots of standard equipment
Cons
  • Pricey to buy

autoexpress[8]

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Volkswagen up! GTI is the antithesis of the bloated and overpowered performance cars that are almost unusable on UK roads. It provides proof that it's possible to have fun while sticking to the speed limits, with a vibe that puts us in mind of the original Golf GTI. Power is sourced from a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine producing 113bhp, which might not seem like a lot, but it's plenty in a car weighing a little over a tonne.

Pros
  • Fun to drive
