If you’ve never experienced a car that’s ‘more than the sum of its parts’, just take an up! for a test drive. It’s hard to believe that such a small car can feel so grown up, even when cruising on the motorway. VW has kept improving the formula too, with subtle updates to its design and a clever mounting system and app that turns your smartphone into the car’s infotainment system, trip computer and navigation. The willing three-pot engine makes it really fun to drive, while the all-electric e-up! delivers clean zero-emissions motoring.
