Volkswagen Up

Don’t let this cute compact car fool you, there’s a lot more to it than initially meets the eye. Yes, it’s tiny, but it’s incredibly stylish and far more sophisticated than you might first imagine. It’s a great little drive, comfortable and fun.

If you’re looking for a supermini that is compact, smart and a nifty drive then this could be the one for you. Best of all you can bag yourself a new VW Up! with a low deposit and free insurance, discounted insurance or cashback.

Reasons to love the Volkswagen Up

A sprightly, agile drive Plus Icon

This is a fun car to drive with light steering. Its small size and nimble driving lends itself perfectly for driving through the busy, narrow streets in town. The tight turning circle makes it particularly good for manoeuvring. It’s primarily a city car but is equally as happy and refined out on open road.

Distinctive Plus Icon

The up! has a unique look that is full of character and the newer models have had a facelift to give it an even sharper look. As you’d expect with a VW, this is a quality built car with a classy feel that you’d also experience in a VW Golf or Polo. There’s stacks of colours and a range of alloy wheels available so you have the option to personalise too.

Equally the interior has a premium feel that is polished and clean.

In safe hands Plus Icon

Unsurprisingly, the up! scored a maximum five stars with Euro NCAP rating and an 89% score for adult occupant safety so you know you’re in safe hands in this neat little car. All models come with driver and passenger airbags and anti-lock brakes. There’s a few smart optional safety systems available too, should you feel the need, including the City Emergency Braking system. This cleverly uses a laser to scan the road and automatically apply the brakes if it detects a potential collision.

Small size, small costs Plus Icon

This size of the car and engine means running costs are low, saving you money and helping you do your bit for the environment. Mid-level models have a respectable 62.mpg fuel economy. The BlueMotion models feature technologies to make them even more efficient including stop/start technology, an energy recuperation system and aerodynamic modifications.

Insurance wise the up! is about as cheap to insure as it gets. Most models are in the very lowest groups 1 and group 2.

Frequently asked questions

How does the insurance work? Plus Icon

We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Allianz, one of the largest insurers in the UK.

Will I need to have a black box in the car? Plus Icon

Your new car will be covered by our New Driver Insurance. This uses clever black box technology to help you develop your driving skills – and if you drive safely and remain claim free, you can earn an additional discount at renewal. The majority of applicants will receive free insurance, but where this is not available we will offer you discounted insurance or cashback.

What happens after the first year? Plus Icon

We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)

How long until I get my new car? Plus Icon

Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order.
