2017 Volkswagen Up! GTI officially

2017 Volkswagen Up! GTI officially 2It’s that power figure which leads Volkswagen to say that the Up GTI ‘follows the genetic heritage’ of the Mk1 Golf GTI – with just 5bhp difference between the two cars, performance figures are very close-run. 41 years on from the original, Volkswagen’s keen to conjure up the spirit of the past, with a sporty, nimble car that puts fun over fast.

The Up! Was withdrawn from sale in Australia due to no automatic transmission availability. With a single-clutch automated manual the only option in Europe, this, unfortunately looks set to continue. But if VW had the guts to bring the car to Australia, we’re sure there’d be plenty of fans.

So it’s brisk rather than fast, but that’s the whole point. You’ll need to thrash the hell out of it to make decent progress, which I guarantee will be hilarious fun, not to mention much easier than extracting the full potential of today’s mega hatches.

Inside, Clark plaid fabric upholstery, GTI door sill trims, a sportier steering wheel and gearknob, red dashboard trim, a leather-wrapped handbrake lever, black headlining and red ambient lighting set the up! GTI on the inside, while 15 mm lower sports suspension and 17-inch Brands Hatch alloy wheels hiding 15-inch front disc brakes keep it glued to the road.
