I drove an Up! rental in Germany a year and a bit ago and it was surprisingly capable for a small car it is, but it will be rather short of breath up at the reef. As always, trim will be cheapened for the local market. A Polo Match edition rental was a fun ride (firmly sprung) and the interior trim made the local Polo look like a peasant model.
I am tempted to get one but i dont desire being a hijackers best friend.
Drove 'em last week. Very nifty l'il cabby - drives like a car twice its size. Surprisingly quiet and refined. Base price should be close to that R130k level, but closer to R145k for something with cruise control, height adjustable driver's seat, electric windows and the like.
The more I read about the up! the more you realize what a "cool" car this is & one that is SA-entry-level buyers were crying out for.
No sarcasm but the up! with that front & rear skirt looks tops...
This car will be a huge hit with SA buyers; no doubt about that.
Bit of a typo in the specs there - 3yr/120,000km service plan?
We received our first few today. We're not allowed to have 'em on the floor until Monday, nor on the road until Valentine's day... It is a genuinely sweet little car; I predict major supply constraints.
