Volkswagen released a new up! This time we are talking about a four-door version that costs only EUR 470 more than the two-door version. The model will arrive in dealerships starting March 6th and will be launched on the entire European market by early summer. The new model is powered by the same engine, equipment versions and dimensions like the two-door version. It is able to deliver 60 PS or 75 PS. Its price will start at EUR 10.325. The carmaker offers a new side profile to change the look. The rear doors open wide and offer comfortable entry. This variant actually offers the same good interior spaciousness as the two-door model and this is really interesting taking into consideration the size of the car. Volkswagen offers City Emergency Braking that is perfect in a tight situation. Also it offers a portable navigation system and a hands-free telephone unit.
The New Small Family is growing: four-door up! arrives on market early this year
Price is only 475 euros higher than that of the two-door
All signs point to a big future for the small up!. In Germany, the two-door city specialist immediately garnered first place in its class in registration statistics. Now Volkswagen is raising the bar by presenting the four-door version of the up!. In May, the latest member of the New Small Family ? Volkswagen's internal name for the model series ? will arrive at dealers; advanced sales begin on the 6th of March (both dates for Germany). The four-door car will have launched on the entire European market by early summer.
Volkswagen anticipates that over half of all up! buyers will choose the four-door version. This version has identical engines (44 kW / 60 PS and 55 kW / 75 PS), equipment versions (take up!, move up!, high up!, black up!, white up!) and dimensions as the two-door cars. The four-door up! will be available in Germany at prices from 10,325 euros, including ESP ? compared to the two-door, this represents an additional price of just 475 euros.
Lots of doors, and lots behind them!
With four doors, the look of the car's side profile has changed. While the lower window line of the two-door rises towards the rear near the C-pillars, it forms a straight line on the four-door car. This gives the new body version a high level of independence. The crisp and short body overhangs are also distinctive on the four-door. The front and rear sections are identical in both body versions. This also means that buyers of the four-door version will get to enjoy a bootlid whose outer skin consists of a continuous glass surface; this gives the bootlid the high-tech and high-end look of a smartphone. Located behind the bootlid is a boot with a 251 litre cargo capacity, which can be extended to up to 951 litres by folding down the rear backrest.
Comfortable driving with four persons!
The rear doors open wide and offer comfortable entry. The four-seat, four-door car offers the same good interior spaciousness as the two-door, which is remarkable given the vehicle's size. Headroom in the rear is 947 mm, while it is 993 mm in front. Legroom in the second row is a comfortable 789 mm. The seat height in the rear has a pleasant effect: the height of the so-called H-point ? the relevant vertex of the angle formed by the seat surface and the backrest ? is 378 mm in the rear, which is higher than in front (306 mm). This higher seat position lets rear passengers see better over the shoulders of the driver and front passenger. Just as important: there is plenty of space under the front seats for the feet of the rear passengers.
Ingenious systems for greater safety and convenience!
Volkswagen is offering the same optional features in both the two-door and four-door up!. They include systems such as City Emergency Braking. The up! is the first car in its class that can be automatically braked by such a function in a tight situation, in this case over a speed range from 5 to 30 km/h. Also available upon request is maps+more ? a portable navigation and infotainment system with touchscreen. It contains a navigation system, a hands-free telephone unit, an informational display of various vehicle parameters and a media player. In addition, apps can be used to customise maps+more to personal requirements. With these features, the up! ? as a two-door and four-door car ? is clearly one of the most advanced small cars on the market.
