These are the first official pictures of the five-door VW Up.

Although official details and prices have yet to be released, the current indications are that five-door models will cost around £400 more than equivalent three-door cars. That should mean prices starting from around £9400.

As with the three-door, three engine variants are expected to be available – two 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol units as well as a frugal BlueMotion Technology version of the lower-powered petrol – with three trim levels to choose from.

The five-door's key dimensions will be the same as the three-door, which means it will offer a 251-litre boot, plus 920mm of rear headroom and a maximum of 820mm of rear legroom.

UK sales are expected to begin in the fourth quarter of this year.

Volkswagen Up

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

Does it have the option of thousands of helium balloons and an old man?

Would be interesting to see this in the flesh. On first count I too would go for the Aygo - however cars are always different when poking and proding and turning the wheel.

I was talking to a VW insider and he said that they acknowledged that this is a particular problem for some young families. As a result, they'll address it with a special edition called the Throw Up!

Loved it!

I think it'll probably start at £8400, not £9400, which seems more manageable. As in, £7995 plus £400, which is what Car said as well. Autocar clearly didn't check their sums...
