These are the first official pictures of the new five-door VW up! – and the more practical sister car to the three-door city car is set to make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
Volkswagen says that it’s due to hit UK dealers in the second half of this year, so you should see it on sale around September. There was little official information about the new car, but it’s expected to cost around £400 more than the three-door, which means prices will start at £8,395.
VW claims the new five-door model will account for half of all up! sales, too. It’s expected to sit on exactly the same wheelbase as the three-door, with no major increase in dimensions.
Under the bonnet is the same choice of 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engines as the three-door, with 59bhp or 74bhp. There will be a road tax-exempt 99g/km car, too, while VW says it’ll offer the same special editions, including colour-coded black and white launch models.
