Volkswagen up! its game with the addition of extra doors and new derivatives

The ever growing appeal of the Volkswagen’s small car, up! has been further boosted with the addition of extra doors, two new lifestyle derivatives, cross up! and colour up! as well as infotainment option, Touch & More. Since its local launch in February 2015, up! has only been offered as a 3-door model.

Customers now have an option of buying a 5-door or 3-door Take up! and Move up! derivatives. To date, Volkswagen up! has sold over 3 550 units in South Africa which makes one of the dominant models in the A00 small car segment. Furthermore, two new derivatives have been added into the model range. Both are powered by the 1.0 55kW engine and mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.

The cross up! offers customised styling of a small SUV. Its sporty and rugged appearance is marked by exclusive exterior and interior elements. The colour up! with its bold and trendsetting colours unmistakably stands out in the range. As a flagship derivative of the range, colour up! is laden with an array of exclusive features.

The optional Touch & More is a portable infotainment system which offers Bluetooth connectivity, SD card reader and drive applications that display factual information related to the vehicle. The 5-inch colour touchscreen Touch & More plugs into a sturdy bracket above the centre console which connects it with the electronics network of the vehicle.
