Every now and then, a new car comes along that redefines an existing market. Ever since it made its debut as a concept in 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, the entry-level model has set new standards for quality and refinement in city cars.
Designers have clearly thought hard about how the car will be used. Deep door bins, a large centre console cubby and a lidded glove box mean there's plenty of space for odds and ends. Lift the glass tailgate and you'll find a healthy 251 litres of carrying capacity. Flexibility is further boosted by a false boot floor and split-fold rear seat.
The up! sets a new city car standard, with its big-car refreshment, grown-up driving dynamics, top-notch quality and clever packaging. Factor in low running costs, plus a Volkswagen badge, it's tough to beat.
