Volkswagen up!

The Volkswagen up! is a three-door city car with enough space for four adults. It features a small, efficient 1.0-litre petrol engine, with a fully electric version also on offer. It's smaller than rivals like the Toyota Aygo and Peugeot 107, but clever packaging and design means the Volkswagen up! offers the maximum amount of space from its small dimensions.

The stylish Volkswagen up!, goes head-to-head with city cars such as the Hyundai i10 and Kia Picanto. It's powered by a lively three-cylinder, 1.0-litre petrol engine, tuned to produce either 59bhp or 74bhp and feels at home both in town and on the motorway. Designed with a highly adjustable interior and plenty of room for the whole family, the up! also offers very competitive fuel economy of 67mpg and emissions of under 100g/km.
