Volkswagen introduced a restyled up! at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and showed an extensive personalization program that could make any car almost tailor-made.
The German styling culture was almost every time based on the form follows function theme, and so was the up! While the Italians sacrificed some features and knee room or headroom for the design’s sake, Germans never did that. The French were somewhere in the middle road. Back to the up!

With a look that could conquer the hearts of a geometry lover, the up! showed a new front fascia with LED daytime running lights. The grille was just a thin line between the hood’s edge and the wrapped-around plastic bumper. An additional cooling area found its place under the license plate area, flanked by a pair of optional fog lights. In the three-door version, the up! Provided access through its wide doors. The greenhouse looked like a cube with a raked windshield at the front and a vertical drop at the back. Thanks to the wheels pushed to the corners, the up! looked prepared for small parking spaces and mall parking lots.

Inside, there was a new dashboard design, which was available in six different colors. On the center stack, the carmaker relied on customers’ smartphones for pretty much everything, from music player to navigation. A special cradle sat on top of the vehicle’s radio. In front of the driver, Volkswagen mounted a rounded-shaped instrument cluster. For seating, the carmaker confirmed that it was, in the best-case scenario, a four-seat vehicle. It offered enough legroom and headroom on the two-seat bench.

Under the hood, Volkswagen installed an inline-three, either naturally aspirated or turbocharged.

That was the smallest Volkswagen in its lineup.
It was built for ease of use inside towns and it was intended to decrease the average fuel consumption of the manufacturer’s lineup.

The up! was the car built around practicality. It was the quintessence of the form follow function design. When it was launched in 2012 it took everyone by surprise with the fuel-efficiency and interior space.

Despite being a Volkswagen, the exterior look doesn’t resemble any other vehicle from the lineup. No special grille or headlights would remind of anything else. Just a box with a hood in the front and a vertical liftgate in the rear. The 3-door version featured plenty of room for adults in the rear, with enough leg- and headroom.

The dashboard was plain and simple, but it had some versions with a removable navigation system that was plugged into a special cradle on top of the center console. Here, some buttons and knobs were taken from its bigger brother Golf or Polo.

Under the hood, there was a three-cylinder engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. It was built to be affordable and with a very low cost of ownership. As a first in the industry, the up! Offered City Emergency Braking, which automatically braked the car at speeds between 5 and 30 kph (3 and 18.6 mph).

The production car has three-cylinder engines that go under the bonnet.
We’re talking about two petrol units of 1.0-liter displacement and offering either 60 hp or 75 hp. Designed to live in the city, the up! will get remarkably good fuel consumption thanks to VW’s BlueMotion Technology, with both engines putting out well under 100 grams of CO2 per kilometer.

“If the goal is to maximize space, the ideal form for a small car would be a rectangular box. In the up we were able to sculpt such a box with a clean and powerful design that does not lose sight of space utilization,” said Klaus Bischoff, Head of Design for the Volkswagen Brand.
