Volkswagen has launched two new versions of its Up supermini. The new Street Up and Club Up are both now open for orders, with first deliveries planned for March.

Both new models are based on High Up specification, which includes air conditioning, heated front seats, a portable infotainment system and front foglights.

However, Street Up and Club Up models also get 16-inch alloy wheels, new paintwork, tinted rear windows, bespoke badging and special cloth upholstery inside. The Street Up also gains chrome accents around the front foglights.

The new editions are both powered by VW's 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, which develops 74bhp and 70lb ft. VW says the engine is capable of returning a combined 60.1mpg, while emitting 108g/km of CO2.

Prices for both models start at £11,995, rising to £12,370 for the five-door versions. That places both models just under the top-spec Rock Up, which is priced at £13,465.

The Volkswagen Up city car isn't revolutionary, it's just quantifiably better than the opposition

Up variants

Still making for the Up GT.. or even a 2/3-cylinder diesel version of the UP.

'Poor sales'

Really LP? You can't move for 'em where I am (central London). And I totally agree with your pov mx5xm. But... These new versions are both Screw Ups: leave the daft go-faster stripes to Seat.

This smacks of eth Polo Fox

Huw to make a completely dull car and then jazz it up. But really drearily, still with some hard bargaining these models look like you could walk away with a bargain.

Seems like a well designed little car that is great as a 2nd or city car, low fuel consumption and easy to park. What's your issue with it? What else do you think designers can do with a small footprint and enough space to seat four? It seems as good as the original Twingo, but Up-dated. I think people complain about too much. What alternative do you think fits the bill for a smart small city car?
