Who are Volkswagen?
This venerable German automaker has a reputation for making quality cars their owners fall in love with. The VW camper van, the Beetle and the Golf have built the kind of adoring fan bases most brands would sell their grandmothers for.
The lesser-known Up! is a relative newcomer to urban streets, but it was launched in 2011 to instant acclaim. It’s won a string of awards and accolades, attracting even more attention since its 2016 facelift. Recently it picked up the title of Auto Express’s City Car of the Year for the second year running.
So why all the fuss? The Up! gives you plenty of versatility, with a total of six models and seven engines to choose from. Not only does it have a lot of inside space for the size, it’s also considered a lot of fun to drive.

If you’re a new driver and haven’t had a chance to do that, you might want to look into a telematics policy.
