On checking out images for UP on Google, I found 2 types of 5-door variant of this car.

One is a UP/Lupo that is a regular 5-door hatch :

Attachment 847662

The other is UP Space which has a diff. door arrangement :

Attachment 847663

Wonder which of the 3 will come to India.



VW can surprise you! Look what they did with the Beetle.

The massive manufacturing-unit in Pune was constructed keeping the Up! in mind. So what do you reckon the price-tag would be, Sir?

4 lakhs would be good; but I've a feeling they'll start upwards of 4 lakhs at least in the beginning.

There are Indian websites discussing even variant features of UP! Lol!

~ 4 lakhs will take the fight right to Honda's (Brio) and Hyundai's (Eon/i10) doorstep with new-age hatchbacks.

Most Euro spec. cars have the rear wiper and defogger as standard in the base version, from what I have observed.

The base version of the Palio 1.2 came with rear wiper and defogger but without power steering, left ORVM and even wheelcaps in 2001. Rear wiper / demister is a safety priority in Europe, I suppose!

The rear wiper and defogger are mandatory, I believe the Laura also has it. I observed that about the first batch of Palio only very recently, the rear wiper & ABS was the deal maker in me selecting the Punto Emotion. I see you are another Fiat owner. Today I doubt most buyers bother about that, badge and beige will get you customers, safety is a top end accessory.

I am a Fiat owner, but unfortunately, my car does not have rear demister or wiper despite being the mid-version. That is because Fiat learnt its lessons in India soon enough and removed the rear wiper-demister from all but top-end variants while launching the Palio NV and all variants after that. My Palio Stile did not even come with the left ORVM and I had to purchase one.

Now, we're totally .

To me it looks really good!!
And the rear hatch which has the rear glass integrated in it looks much better than that of the brio
Also i so hope they launch this very version , a 2 door at-least as a limited edition . I would love to go for it

Here in 2013- says the cover page of latest issue of Overdrive mag.

So, what do we do the whole 2012? Speculate whether it's 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 doors?

This, the one spotted, must be for the Expo then. But 2013? Isn't it too late?

I can see a very practical city car in this VW.
Boxy shape should generate quite a bit interior space inside.
Car looks quite unusual (for our market) as well.

I hope VW comes up with good engine options

Car looks small and good, but may not succeed if it comes with a 2-door option in India.

Reports indicate a 5 door version! 2 door version seen here could be the Auto fair display unit!

Cheers!

- Not immediately. If they think of a diesel, then maybe the Polo's 1.2 (3 cylinder) at a detuned setting might be plonked in the Up!.

- Don't think so.

- Specifications:

Engine: 1.0L, three-cylinder petrol engine; 5-spd manual, FWD

Power/torque: 59bhp, 74bhp

Top speed: 108mph

Fuel economy: 65.7mpg (miles per gallon)
