High up! 1.0 TSI

Lively and exhilarating, the 1.0-litre turbocharged engine joined the Volkswagen up! range in July 2016. Available exclusively with the High up! trim, the 90 PS motor is a three-cylinder unit that adds to the already exciting characteristics of the up! city car.

At the same time as the 1.0-litre 90 PS TSI engine was introduced, the up! received revised styling, particularly at the front, and new technology on the inside.

The up!’s front bumper is all-new and gives the car a mature look and works with the revised radiator grille and bonnet to give a purposeful stance.  The Volkswagen roundel is now chrome-on-black, the new LED running lights are an additional styling cue – enhancing safety, too – while the up!’s angular door mirrors and rear bumper has also been redesigned to give the diffuser a dramatic look.

Smartphone integration has taken a significant step forward in the latest Volkswagen up!. The High up!’s ‘Composition Colour’ system features a five-inch display, DAB radio and a CD player. It uses Bluetooth connectivity for audio.

With the ‘Maps + More’ Volkswagen App, all smartphones with iOS or Android operating systems can be clicked into the USB-enabled docking station above the dash and the smartphone is then turned into a handy extension of the infotainment system.  This enables access to navigation, speakerphone, trip computer and other features.

The new turbocharged engine has a sub-10 second 0-62 mph time and a top speed, where legal, of 114 mph. Its 160 Nm torque peak, meanwhile, ensures swift pick-up and a willing nature regardless of engine revs or gear choice.  The 1.0-litre TSI motor comes with a manual five-speed gearbox.
