Still on the up!

Shepparton News - Shepparton Car Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

Af­ter 18 months and over 15 000 UK sales, the Volk­swa­gen up! con­tin­ues to win ac­co­lades, af­ter been named Best City Car in the Fleet World Hon­ours for the sec­ond year in a row.

The Fleet World Hon­ours are pre­sented an­nu­ally, and the judg­ing process com­bines the ex­pert opin­ion of the Fleet World edi­to­rial team with the ob­jec­tive val­ues pro­vided by a num­ber of lead­ing leas­ing com­pa­nies and fleet data providers.

Fleet World edi­tor Steve Moody said Volk­swa­gen’s up! con­tin­ued to set the bench­mark for qual­ity in a seg­ment that is of­ten more to do with cheap­ness.

“As a re­sult, it is hugely de­sir­able, and yet eco­nom­i­cal to run thanks to its ef­fi­cient en­gines. It’s pretty spa­cious too, for such a com­pact car, il­lus­trat­ing clever de­sign and pack­ag­ing,” he said.

Adding to an al­ready im­pres­sive pack­age, the up! comes with a three-year/un­lim­ited kilo­me­tre war­ranty which in­cludes road­side as­sist, and ben­e­fits from six years of capped price ser­vic­ing.

The judg­ing panel is chaired by Steve Moody, Edi­tor of Fleet World, and in­cludes John Ken­dall, Alex Grant, Natalie Wal­lis, Dan Gilkes and Ross Durkin from the Fleet World edi­to­rial team.

Resid­ual value, main­te­nance and re­li­a­bil­ity data is pro­vided by ALD Au­to­mo­tive, Hitachi Cap­i­tal Ve­hi­cle So­lu­tions, Lex Au­tolease, LeasePlan and Ar­val. Mar­ket value data is pro­vided by Euro­taxGlass and VIPDATA.
