After a short break the UP! GTI is now available to order with prices starting from £15,895 on the road. The UP! GTI keeps its 1.0 litre three-cylinder turbocharged engine which produces 115 PS. 0 to 62 mph takes 8.8 seconds.

The up! GTI is the perfect example of Volkswagen catering for enthusiasts and regular car buyers alike – the GTI has attracted numerous fans thanks to its unique blend of everyday practicality and usable performance – in 2018 it won GQ’s ‘Scream If You Want To Go Faster’ award. So we haven’t messed with the formula.
