With the Volkswagen up! bringing great sales to VW (and great confusion to autocorrect when typing blog articles), Volkswagen have announced that new models the Street up! and the Club up! today will be making their way to forecourts this March.
Both models are based on the flagship High up! trim which includes With front fog lights, heated front seats and a Maps & More portable infotainment device taken from the flagship High up!, the two new models also have that little bit more to make their way up the customers’ shopping lists.
The Street up! is the stylish of the two new brothers with 16” Upsilon alloy wheels, standard Pure White, Black Pearl or Reflex Silver paint, 65% tinted glass from the B-pillar back, “Street” badging, decals on side, bonnet, boot and roof, wing mirrors in silver (except for the Reflex Silver models where the wing mirrors are black), body coloured bumpers with chrome moulding on the front fog lights, leather steering wheel with up! logo, up! scuff plates with yellow stripe, black roof lining, carpet mats and unique “Street” cloth upholstery.
But then the Club up! is the much more sophisticated and more likely to be asked to a dinner party or debutante ball with 16” Triangle alloy wheels, standard Blueberry metallic (unique to this model) or Black Pearl paint, 65% tinted glass from the B-pillar back, “Club” badging, decals on side panels in silver, wing mirrors in silver, up! scuff plates, black roof lining, carpet mats and unique “Club” Tartan Tonic cloth upholstery.
Both new cars are available to order in three and five-door bodystyles and are both powered by the up!’s most powerful three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engine that delivers 75 PS at 6,200 rpm, a maximum torque of 95 Nm (70 lbs ft) between 3,000 and 4,300 rpm, and is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.
When it comes to fuel economy we are talking a very respectable 60.1 mpg on the combined cycle and with emissions an acceptable 108 g/km of CO2.
Word to your mother! (or to Nationwide Vehicle Contracts who will have details here soon)
