Volk­swa­gen con­cept is UP! and away

Herald Sun - Motoring - - First Drive -

THE rad­i­cal Volk­swa­gen Up! con­cept is com­ing to the road in 2012, with a plug-in petrol model in 2012.

The Up! started as a rear-en­gined show con­cept but has been al­tered to a con­ven­tional front-wheel drive hatch­back, al­though smaller than the cur­rent Polo.

The Up! is al­most cer­tain for Aus­tralia, pro­vided the car is right — which means a start­ing price be­low the Polo at $16,690.

‘‘We are still ne­go­ti­at­ing prod­uct and price po­si­tion­ing with the fac­tory,’’ man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of VW Group Aus­tralia Anke Koeck­ler, says.
