Re­vamped up! shines

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors -

The newly re­vamped ver­sion of city car favourite the Volk­swa­gen up! has taken cen­tre stage on the Ger­man man­u­fac­turer’s stand in Geneva. It comes with fresh fea­tures like newly de­signed body pan­els, new colours, new wheels, more in­di­vid­u­al­i­sa­tion op­tions, ex­tra equip­ment, a re­designed in­te­rior and a new en­gine. The lat­ter, a 1.0-litre tur­bocharged three cylin­der unit, is the first turbo for the up! and the most pow­er­ful mo­tor avail­able in the model to date. It de­vel­ops 89bhp and is ca­pa­ble of hit­ting 62mph in 10 sec­onds and on to a top speed of 115mph. CO2 emis­sions are low at 102g/ km. Other en­gines com­prise the ex­ist­ing 1.0-litre petrol units with 60 or 75bhp – and the zero emis­sion e-up!
