Time to get down to your Volkswagen retailer to pick up an up!

The award-winning new Volkswagen up! is now in UK showrooms.  This cleverly compact city specialist has the interior space and features of a larger car, but its prices are in keeping with its small footprint.  Prices start at £7,995 (RRP OTR), and rise to just £11,180, while retail customers using Volkswagen Finance’s Solutions PCP package can get into an up! from just £79 a month.

Volkswagen UP

The up! distils Volkswagen’s values of quality, safety and value for money in a compact package, with modern, clean and efficient engines, class-leading safety features and an innovative infotainment system.  It is available with two 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine options as well as a BlueMotion Technology version.  There are three trim levels – Take up!, Move up! and High up! – plus special editions, the up! black and up! white.  A five-door version will join the line-up later this year, along with an optional automatic gearbox.  A fully electric version is in the pipeline.

Volkswagen Finance’s Solutions package means the up! is available to retail customers from just £79 a month, until 31 March, based on 10,000 miles per annum over three years*.  For business users, up! starts at just £103 a month (plus VAT and initial rental) on a contract hire basis.  Please see

or visit your local Volkswagen Retailer for full details.

To ensure that customers continue to benefit from great value even after they’ve driven their new up! out of the showroom, Volkswagen’s three-year/30,000-mile fixed price servicing plan is available for £299, or for £99 if the vehicle is purchased with Solutions.

The up! has already won the What Car? Car of the Year for 2012 award, been named Top Gear magazine’s Small Car of the Year and also CarBuyer’s Best City Car.
