Car:
Volkswagen Up (2012)
Performance:
The little naturally aspirated gasoline three-pot produces 74 hp and 70 lb-ft of torque. Although an automated manual transmission is available, our tester's engine was hooked Up! to a five-speed manual.
Engine:
Though the original Up! concept followed the Beetle's formula with a rear-mounted boxer engine, the production Up!'s 1.0-liter I-3 is mounted Up!front, driving the front wheels.
Wheels:
95.3 in
Interior:
The Up! is spacious and comfortable inside. The car may be cheap, but the interior doesn't feel it. The interior is attractively and intelligently laid out, without any pointless gimmicks (looking at you, Fiat 500). The center stack is simple and minimalistic, and navigation and trip computer duties are handled by a portable Navigon unit, mounted Up!on the dash. More important than the Up!'s interior design is its functionality; with the wheels pushed out to each corner, there's enough room in the little two-door hatch to fit Up! to four, including this 6-foot scribe in back. That's more than many city cars can say.
