The ever growing appeal of the Volkswagen’s small car, up! has been further boosted with the addition of extra doors, two new lifestyle derivatives, Cross up! and Colour up! as well as the Touch & More infotainment option.

The Volkswagen up! has initially only been offered as a 3-door model, but customers now have an option of buying a 5-door or 3-door Take up! and Move up! derivatives.

Volkswagen up! is one of the dominant models in the South African A00 small car segment.

Cross up!

The Cross up! offers customised styling of a small SUV. Its sporty and rugged appearance is marked by exclusive exterior and interior elements. They include exterior features such as side mirrors painted in silver, anodised silver roof rails, black protective side moulding, foglights with chrome trim surrounding and 16-inch ‘Cross’ alloy wheels. Its powerful appearance is further enhanced by 15 mm ride height.

The interior features a leather steering wheel, exclusive ‘Cross’ seat trim in red or grey, coloured dash pad in Deep Black Pearl (standard) or Tornado Red (optional) and scuff plates with ‘Cross’ lettering.

The Cross up! is available in four colours only, Candy White, Tornado Red, Light Silver Metallic and Deep Black Pearlescent.

Colour up!

With its bold and trendsetting colours, this up! unmistakably stands out in the range. As a flagship derivative of the range, colour up! is laden with an array of exclusive features. These include safety and convenience equipment such as four airbags, ESP, power steering, front electric windows, remote central locking, leather steering wheel, Radio/CD, front foglights and height adjustable driver and front passengers seats.

On the outside, the colour up! differentiates itself with 17-inch ‘Polygon’ alloy wheels (painted in Fortana red or Sandstorm yellow), painted side mirrors (also painted in Fortana red or Sandstorm yellow), dark tinted windows and decorative stripe on the side.

The interior is also colourful with high quality details such as dash pad in the exterior of the car, colourful air vent rings and elegant chrome elements.

The Colour up! is exclusively offered in two colours, Dark Silver Metallic and Pure White.

Touch & More infotainment

The optional Touch & More is a portable infotainment system which offers Bluetooth connectivity, SD card reader and drive applications that display factual information related to the vehicle. The 5-inch colour touchscreen Touch & More plugs into a sturdy bracket above the centre console which connects it with the electronics network of the vehicle.
