What is it like on the inside?
The Up has quite a simple cabin, with a dashboard that matches the exterior colour of the car. The plastics are good in the areas where your eyes and hands spend the most time, while the cabin is generously proportioned: even six-footers will be comfortable up front, and, thanks to some clever packaging in the rear, the two back seat passengers won’t grumble too much, either. The five-door adds to the practicality, but the side design doesn’t look as modern, even though this revised look improved visibility. Being a VW, it’s all you would hope in terms of quality and an upmarket ambience, plus we also really like the optional Maps+More satnav system that clips into the dashboard.
