The Volkswagen Up! with its state-of-the-art technology wins the ‘Best City Car’ award at the 2012 Fleet World Honours and has also claimed top prize after being named ‘Car of the Year 2012′, a title that Volkswagen has won an impressive six times previously.
The judging panel attributed the success of this popular car to its reliability, residual value, practicality and amazing performance.
This bold and modern looking clever compact has all the right ingredients: it holds its value well, has clean efficient engines, class-leading safety features and is really all the car most people will ever need, with a design that encapsulates modern urban mobility.
The Up! is a very light-weight car weighing just under a tonne. The ride and handling too are a big surprise. For a city car the Up! is very competent indeed, dealing with bumps well and proving comfortable in all conditions.
The Up! with its clean-cut design is fun to drive, excellent value for money and is a well packaged vehicle that should prove a hit with a whole host of young customers.
The What Car? Car of the Year Volkswagen Up! is a clear winner with its blend of refinement, quality and space and is an astonishing affordable proposition available in the UK market for both lease and purchase.
Beneath the surface, this Volkswagen is a truly great small car that is definitely on its way UP!
