Review of the new 2012 Volkswagen Up- 1.0 75 hp and 4.9 l/100 km

Finally! With the VW Up is celebrating a worthy successor to the iconic VW Lupo forgotten his Einstand.Wir the Fox quickly and see what the new can.

Review of the new 2012 Volkswagen Up- 1.0 75 hp and 4.9 l/100 km
Quite a lot, as the test shows.

There was once a Wolfsburg-based group, who aspired to higher things. With a particularly high heaven car named Phaeton was the image of the star shine so bright Niedersachsen, that you did not notice the lights, like at the bottom of the model hierarchy has been switched on a light.

Especially when Lupo , who was clever with his small car design and its low consumption (especially three-liter version) ahead of its time, VW stopped in late 2005 the bands: too expensive in production.

Even small car customers have requirements

They prefer the cheap cruises in Brazil made Fox one - and it landed the biggest flop in the recent history of the brand. Not even the giant VW dealer network was able to heave the small car market share of the importer of nischigen models.

The Brazilian Dwarf took the customers with its irrelevance more than happy foxteufelswild Lupo. That it then took flight in 2007 a joint top of Group - Winterkorn had just become head of VW - to see that even small car customers have claims, the story is not significantly improved. At this time, Fiat came with the 500 already on the market.

But VW is well known, like later, but then great. The new Lupo, pardon VW Up , stands, although only 3.54 meters long and 1.49 meters high, with its modern, monolithic form and grow very sturdy on the road than its competitors.

In contrast to this, he is hardly narrower towards the roof. Accordingly, it is airy interior of the VW Up (the highest in the test equipment White Up) received. "Finally, VW-standard", it entfleucht one. Modern, chic and unagitated design, great ergonomics, simple operation and a quality of love in the design of the controls, even the two classes it is not self-evident: soft click screenings and decorate the edges of the matte metal switch.

Good noise level in the VW Up 1.0 White

Who wants to fold the front seats must be in opposition to a Fiat 500 deep bend to the lever. Too bad, because the dynamically shaped chair at people with enough to feed even wider contact area and lateral support. Appropriate as when driving the VW Up flits into a new dimension in the city car sector.

Willig flutscht the lever by the five streets, growls and alert to the three-cylinder. What is not something new only once, since such a piston Trio per se is not working right. Whereby in the partial load range sets a surprisingly quiet, as if glued to the board in person the insulation batts in the VW Up. At 130 km / h in fifth gear only slightly, the wind whispers to the A-pillars, and the noise level is even below 70 decibels.

The 75-hp one-liter all-aluminum engine with the Development Code EA211 debuted in the VW Up and its vibrations effectively decoupled with rubber-metal elements from the body. More power to equal his 60-horsepower variant of VW Up 1.0 White brings about higher rotatory power (6,200 instead of 5,000 rpm) and accelerates it in a respectable 14.1 seconds from zero to 100 km / h.

He has also, in contrast to Fox for nearly three hundred pounds up gespeckt and thus carry little: only 938 kg of the four-seater Volkswagen liftet on the auto motor and sport-scale and therefore not much more than a Smart Fortwo.


4.9 liters are not sensational

Nevertheless, it is sufficient at 4.9 liters per 100 km at low speeds not exceptionally low fuel consumption. Only the BlueMotion Technology version of the VW Up to skimp on rolling resistance tires and start-stop system again another pint. Surprisingly, the VW Up begins on the highway is not on the booze. His test consumption levels off at 6.5 liters and it may be particularly grateful to the lower small car for a short drag coefficient of 0.32.

The VW Up 1.0 White travel is better than most compact cars in the nineties. With its balance in driving behavior, he sets the bar high. The front-wheel vibrates his precise passengers, left, and fool-proof wankarm driving around the curve, while the precisely tuned damper for superb comfort pump dimensions in small cars to race. The standard ESP sensitively regulates the flow of driving under the self-controlled limit. "ESP off" but not permanently to signal in the instrument panel is an incomprehensibly gaffe.

Likely to be only partially happy with VW's excellent braking performance even on the VW Up, because at 36 meters from 100 km / h, the small stops better than a Volkswagen Golf GTI .

Which has the VW Up 1.0 White with a standard navigation system, cruise control, air conditioning, CD radio and 16-inch alloy wheels, even with the equipment ahead of what - makes 14 300 €. This leaves the VW Up also priced down to earth and is a Volkswagen in the best sense of the word.
