Volkswagen up ReviewVolkswagen up Road Test

Ride quality is really pretty good for a car that has such a short distance between its front and rear axles. It makes the up! feel bigger and more poised than you expect of a car this size.

Ride and Handling

Driving this micro-VW, you feel as if you are at the wheel of a slightly scaled-down Polo. Remember the Lupo, Volkswagen’s previous sub-Polo city car? The up! Is like the Lupo re-invented and grown much taller, roomier and more practical.

The up! handles completely. Ride quality is really pretty good for a car that has such a short distance between its front and rear axles. It makes the up! feel bigger and more poised than you expect of a car this size.

Ease of Use

Like any car with only three doors, the up! has some obvious disadvantage in terms of practicality. That apart, it works pretty well as a flexible little transporter for a small family. The two rear seats are well shaped and plenty big enough for lanky teenagers. Access into the back past the forward-slid front seats really isn’t too bad. The boot is quite tiny, but you don’t buy this kind of car for its generous luggage space.
