An exclamation mark doesn't usually belong in the name of a vehicle, but you'll soon find that this is a car worth getting exciting about. Light and nimble, this 2012 Car of the Year winner is still on a par with its more recent rivals in the form of the Golf, Polo and Aygo. Perfect for zipping about in urban environments, it's upbeat, positive, and quite simply a car that loves to be driven.
Available in five trims, all Up! models are powered by a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine, producing either 59bhp, 74bhp or 113bhp. Up to 4 adults can be seated, and boot size is at 251-litres, growing to 950-litres with the rear seats folded down – a good capacity for this class. The most basic trim (simply called the Up) manages 0-62mph in 15.6 seconds with a top speed of 101mph, whilst the top-spec GTI trim manages the same time in 8.8 seconds, before reaching a potential 122mph.
The VW e-Up! pure-electric version is powered by an 82hp electric motor and feels even more lively thanks to its electric torque. Total range on a single charge is around 160 miles, and 0 to 62mph is achieved in 11.9 seconds. Meanwhile, top speed is 81 mph.
You can tailor your dream VW Up! lease deal for any budget by altering the leasing options, whether that be contract length, initial payment amount, or annual mileage. If you are looking for a no deposit lease deal, just set the "upfront" initial payment to one month!
