2012 Volkswagen Up! Review


Volkswagen has written automotive history with compact cars. Now, the most successful German carmaker is presenting – on the occasion of the IAA in Frankfurt am Main (September 15 - 25) – the world premiere of a new small car: the up!.

A four-seat city specialist with charisma and great potential. In Germany, the new up! can already be ordered beginning tomorrow (13th of September) including standard ESP at prices from 9,850 euros.

On a minimal footprint (3.54 length), the up! offers maximum space for four persons as well as highly efficient drive technologies (two petrol engines with 44 kW / 60 PS and 55 kW / 75 PS, one natural gas engine with 50 kW / 68 PS, two new gearboxes).

Fuel consumption of the 60-PS version with BlueMotion Technology (including Stop/Start system): 4.2 l/100 km. The entirely new up! will also debut as the world’s first car in its class to have an optional automatic city emergency braking function.

There are three equipment versions for different budgets and needs: take up! is the entry-level version, move up! the convenience-oriented model, and high up! is the top version. At the market launch there will also be two upgraded models based on the high up!: the up! black and up! white.

And that is just the beginning, because the up! will be getting reinforcements. This will gradually create an up! family – of small, efficient, well thought-out, individual and appealing Volkswagens.

In launching the up!, Volkswagen has not only put a new car in motion; at the same time, it has also remixed the parameters of financing. A new financing model with highly flexible configuration options offers up! buyers greater financial freedom.

This financing is called AutoCredit2. If they wish to, customers can also insure their up! as well. And this insurance will fit the budgets of new car drivers. The bottom line: AutoCredit2 and the low entry-level price of the up! of 9,850 euros will make driving a safe and fuel-efficient new car more attainable than ever.

2007 Tokyo Auto Salon - Part 5

We're psyched now that we can finally talk about our favorite vehicles of the 2007 Tokyo Auto Salon: the style wagons. These pimped-out minivans were our favorite part of the 2005 Tokyo Auto Salon, and after the disappointingly small number of VIP vans at the '06 show, we thought that the trend was dead. It turns out that the pimp-wagon scene was just resting, as VIP vans seemed to dominate the 2007 show.

So what makes a minivan a "style wagon"? Basically, a style wagon is a VIP-styled minivan. As is the case with VIP sedans, most style wagons have a simple white or black paint scheme (though silver is also acceptable), tasteful aero kits, large chrome wheels and no fender gap. Within the style wagon scene, the main vans of choice seem to be the Honda Odyssey, Nissan Elgrand and the Toyota Estima. Though Americans would look at any of these rides as "just a minivan", the massive size of these vans allows Japanese tuners to let their minds run wild. Though th…
