The new Volkswagen Up for a small car has surely come a big way. The car with its transverse engines under the bonnet and drive to the front wheels has been an eye opener. The car has shared as many as liabilities as possible and it shows in the final cost. Overall the Up looks like a car with no comparison. The smiling face, the glass tailgate which resembles a giant TV screen, the same square-cut, solid stance with a wheel pushed to each corner similar to the original Mini gives the car a refreshing look. At the front, the short and sloping bonnet is also a never before with a brand new three cylinder engine with a capacity of one litre. Even the radiator can be easily sneaked in next to it instead of sitting ahead, making the front end really short and sweet.

The Up measures approximately 12ft long with the same length as the Fiat 500. The cabin space is much more bigger compared to the Fiat 500. It easily houses two adults in the back as an exchange for the shorter boot space. The cabin seems like a wonderland with the painted metal similar to the way the original Beetle did. The dashboard however has a separate mind of its own with a different tone. Even the huge use of hard plastics does very little harm to detract from the air of quality because the Up makes no pretence at being something it is not. It is an entry level compact car and has no qualms about it. You also have an air-conditioning, electric windows, even a wired-in but facia-top-mounted Navigation sat-nav system.

Even the name of the car comes with a different style. It forms the middle two letters of Lupo, a former tiny Volkswagen, and the experts claimed about its similarity to the Lupo becoming the new car's name once in production. However the name ‘Up’ was too tempting to give up. The car comes in three trim levels of Take Up, Move Up and High Up. The car is also unique with a low thirst which invariably leads to low CO2 emissions. The base level Up with the five-speed manual gearbox does not quite slide under the 100g/km barrier.

The car gets a 108g/km in 75bhp form, 105g/km with 60bhp. Both these cars also come with an optional "robotized manual" transmission – same gearbox but automated shifts, brings the figure below 100. That transmission is embedded with a CNG engine which delivers just 79g/km, again a unique rarity for a CNG. The car just does not seem to stop on the unique factor and in 2013 it is even expected to come with an electric version and a two-cylinder diesel hybrid is under development. On the move the car is very easyArticle Search, refined and more than eager with its three-cylinder way. It does move fast which is not a factor for the small car.  The gear boxes are lite and exact with an equally responsive drive wheel. The Up is surely going to be above its competitors in a lot of ways.
