Until we see the new Volkswagen Golf 8, the German manufacturer unveiled a facelifted version of the Up. The smallest car in Volkswagen`s range becomes more colourful and will be available later this summer.

The facelift brings updated headlights (with LED daytime running lights as standard), new bumpers, a prominent rear diffuser, newly designed tail lights, new exterior mirror housings with integrated indicator lights, new colours and décors for the dashpad (dashboard styling panel) as well as new seat designs.

Fog lamps will now also feature cornering lights. Volkswagen is also offering the up! with a multi-function steering wheel and Pure Air Climatronic (automatic air conditioning) for the first time.

There is also a new engine installed on the Up, the 1.0 TSI unit, with 90 hp. The maximum torque of 160 Nm is available from 1,500 rpm. The three-cylinder engine is the first turbo for the up! and the most powerful motor available in the model to date. It delivers a top speed of 185 km/h, and takes just 10 seconds to accelerate to 100 km/h. 

The average consumption is 4.4 l/100 km (equating to 102 g/km CO2 value) meaning that the Up 1.0 TSI can cover up to 800 km on a single tank of fuel.

Coinciding with the market launch of the new up!, Volkswagen is offering a new equipment version: the Up beats. This is a car whose overall concept is defined by sound because it comes with a 300W sound system. There are also a Composition system, with a 3.1-inch monochrome display, and the top-of-the-range Composition Phone system with a 5.0-inch colour display. Both of the systems feature a twin tuner, AUX IN connection and SD card slot. The base system also has a CD player, while Composition Phone has a Bluetooth interface with hands-free function. The Composition Phone system also offers a rear view camera.
