Volkswagen introducing 4-door version of the up! small car

Volkswagen is introducing a four-door version of the up! small car. The latest member of the New Small Family will arrive at dealers in Germany in May; advanced sales begin on 6 March. The four-door car will have launched on the entire European market by early summer.

Volkswagen anticipates that over half of all up! buyers will choose the four-door version. This version has identical engines (44 kW / 59 hp and 55 kW / 74 hp), equipment versions (take up!, move up!, high up!, black up!, white up!) and dimensions as the two-door cars. The four-door up! will be available in Germany at prices from €10,325 (US$13,400), including ESP—compared to the two-door, this represents an additional price of €475.

With four doors, the look of the car’s side profile has changed. While the lower window line of the two-door rises towards the rear near the C-pillars, it forms a straight line on the four-door car. The short body overhangs are also distinctive on the four-door. The front and rear sections are identical in both body versions. Buyers of the four-door version have a trunklid the outer skin of which consists of a continuous glass surface. Located behind the trunklid is a boot with a 251 liter cargo capacity, which can be extended to up to 951 liters by folding down the rear backrest.



can't wait to see the stretch limo version of this.
