Following on from my blog posted on the 22nd of May 2016 titled- “New VW UP! GTI, it’s following in some big footsteps”………. VW has confirmed that the UP! GTI is now on sale.
Prices start, for the little hot hatch, from £13,750 on the road ( 3 door).
The 5 door version price starts at £14,150 on the road.
Weighing in at only 1,070 kg the UP! GTI is powered by a turbocharged 1.0 litre, 3 cylinder TSI engine.
The engine produces 115 PS and 200 Nm of torque.
0 to 62 mph takes 8.8 seconds with a top speed of 122 mph.
A 6 speed manual gearbox is standard and thanks to its sports suspension, the UP! GTI sits 15 mm lower than a standard UP!
Inside the UP! GTI, expect to see the rather recognisable and traditional ‘Jakara Red’ checked cloth sports seats, GTI gear knob and a flat bottomed steering wheel.
“The buzz around our newest GTI is remarkable, and rightly so. This is a wonderful little hot hatch that simply makes driving truly fun once again.
“The fact that it is so accessibly priced, and yet so generously equipped, will I’m sure only add to our charming new little pocket rocket’s irresistible appeal.”
Said Geraldine Ingham, Head of Marketing at Volkswagen UK.
