Volkswagen Up GT

Volkswagen was never to wait long before up with a sporty version of its new entry, the Volkswagen Up, launched Though the production version is at six months away from the even in Germany, the major of the Volkswagen Up GT (pictured here as a concept car) seems confirmed and includes all the enhancements expect: more power and courtesy of a turbocharger, a six-speed bigger wheels and tyres, suspension settings, more front seats, some interior brightwork — and more nose styling to advertise it

The Wolfsburgers insist the exact isn’t entirely fixed but our drive in the personal car of technical Ulrich Hackenberg’s showed a degree of maturity.

What’s it

In a word, it’s brilliant. The turbocharged three-cylinder engine, now 109bhp and an especially impressive ft of torque to pass through the (which has one more forward than standard manual cars) begins to sound a baby Porsche 911 as soon as you use it a bit of commitment, which its light but controls instantly encourage you to do.

The turbo triple feels where you’d expect — its 6500 rpm redline — but it also keenly from below revs and has remarkably little lag for such a small engine. Not that, it also glides and discreetly around the city on throttle openings. The fact it’ll do 0-62mph in a brisk 8.5 and about 118 mph flat out is only a of the story. The whole thing reeks of painstaking VW development.

The Volkswagen Up GT rides a little firmly than the standard but remains well-damped and supple. ultra-stable in corners and has lots of but will reluctantly understeer you get to the limit. Driving it hard is but very rewarding. And thanks to the sixth gear (I think I saw 3500 rpm at an indicated 90-odd you feel you could drive car comfortably and quietly across It’s that good.

Should I buy one?

Volkswagen up!

You can’t for a When it becomes available, have to battle a lot of other takers, we predict, if they the showroom cars as good as prototype. The RenaultSport Clio is and goes much harder, but pricier, too and scarcely roomier. VW talk pricing — in the UK have a year to decide but a fair estimate would be £13,500. For that, you’ll be one of the best-driving cars on the road.
