VW to begin European sales of 5-door Up in March 6th.


"The five-door Up, which will debut at the Geneva auto show in March, will cost 10,325 euros in Germany, 475 euros more than the three-door version. It will be launched in the rest of Europe by the third quarter, VW said.

The luggage area has 251 liters of space, which can be increased to nearly 951 liters when the rear seats are folded down.

Volkswagen has developed the Up as part of a new family of subcompact vehicles that share a single platform. Skoda's version is called the Citigo while Seat has named its version the Mii."

I noticed that the windows are similar to the ones (butterfly types). I seriously hope that India gets the roll down windows. They are far more convenient and pleasing to the eyes.

VW UP to come in a diesel variant, though the VW-UP is not confirmed for India.

"However, VW has confirmed that the Up! will get a diesel engine very soon. This is not the normal TDI that we find in the Polo and Fabia.
In fact, it’s a whole new engine developed specifically with fuel efficiency in mind. Essentially, it’s a compact twin-cylinder TDI turbodiesel engine, displacing 800cc and delivering 47hp/121Nm developed for the Concept XL1."

Seat version of the Up is out now, the Mii. I like the Up better.

Read this interesting bit on the Up! Apparently VW has decided go a bit different with the names for the various trim levels. Not sure if they will follow the same for India – if/when it get launched

The bare-bone base variant with no frills will be called Take Up. The mid-variant with a bit of chrome, colour coded (aligned to exterior) interiors, remote locking, electric windows etc. will be called Move Up.
And High Up is the fully loaded top variant with fog lamps, high end stereo, leather seats etc. Quite cheesy nomenclature indeed!

Volkswagen to come up with 800cc small car for Indian market!

"After receiving a reasonably good response for the Polo hatchback, the car maker has now announced its plans to introduce a new small car based on its UP model.

The 800cc Up! derivative will cater to the small car segment in car markets of India, China and Brazil.

While no official launch date has come from Volkswagen, industry insiders are betting on a 2013 launch after the unveiling of the car takes place at the Paris Grand Palais, Champs Elysees, Paris."

Volkswagen surely knows to design beautiful as well as aesthetically designed car. VW Up in 5 door trim looks sexy especially the rear, single glass rear door like in Honda Brio. We all had enough those Jap/Korean quirky fluidic designs.
The pictures of Up shows butterfly type rear windows which I seriously hope would we shun for power windows which may not roll down completely as we have in Polo/Vento.
The doors have space for speakers as well as bottle holders in front and as well as in the rear. Space utilization at its best for convenience. Boot space may be around 200 lts, my guess. The best part is that VW is launching it with a diesel heart from the beginning which will be selling more than petrol sibling, if GoI Budget'12 doesn't mess up the diesel party.
VW Up would be positioned somewhere between 3-5 lac range competing with i10, Beat, etc.

The car will be assembled in India, and there will be a fair amount of localization. So that should keep the car's cost down. I expect it to be right in the Brio's and i10's ball-park. A notch under the Polo. 4-6 lakhs (on-the-road)?

EDIT: Expect it to be about as spacious as the Brio and i10, if not more.

Should be the case. Here in Singapore, the top variant of the UP ! is expected to be priced around the base variant of the Polo.

VW India puts UP on the back burner!


"In what can be described as a disappointing and negative development, Volkswagen India has put plans to launch the Up! in India on hold. The word coming from Volkswagen’s office is they are in no hurry to get a slice of the lower end of the B segment."

Volkswagen Up! India launch postponed by three years?

"Among new introductions planned for India, the auto giant is currently contemplating launching its small family car UP!.

"We are currently examining market opportunities in India and China (for UP!)," Volkswagen Group Chairman Martin Winterkorn said.

He, however, clarified that no concrete decision has been taken yet on the same.

"The decision on introduction of the UP! car in India and China has not yet been made. We have to wait and watch. We have to see how the market in India develops, but it will not grow as fast as China," Winterkorn said."

From the initial photos, it seems that the car has a centre ODO console. Woohoo! another car following that route. Although I am in favour of this, as it increases road visibility, I am not sure what would Vista bashers say?

Volkswagen had announced that the Up! has been scrapped, and will no longer be in the pipeline for the Indian Market. A little disappointing. Was really looking forward to experiencing the little hatch. It would have been quite fun, with those short overhangs, and VW cars' trademark driving dynamics and driving characteristics.

We need a small and compact, yet stable and composed hatchback. The Up! would have given the Brio a run for its money, me thinks. And would have definitely dented the sales of the Micra/Pulse.

I can't seem to find a link that suggests that they've dropped the plans. A reliable source had mentioned it to me.
