Small but mighty - up! GTI

06 February 2018

The up! is the latest and smallest, model to be adorned with the famous GTI badge, giving drivers both young and not-so-young the chance to create (or recreate) great driving memories.

Following 42 years of GTI success, the up! GTI harks back to the 1976 Golf GTI Mk1 in both concept and power output. The up! GTI produces 115PS compared to the Mk1's 110PS, and carefully judged dynamics see the new 1,070-kilogram up! GTI pays a modern-day tribute to Volkswagen's original hot hatch icon. Building on the already impressive base of the existing up!, the new GTI adds a 115PS 1-litre TSI three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, greater downforce on the rear axle, sports running gear lowered by around 15mm compared to the standard car, and typical GTI insignia inside and out.

Offered in three or five doors and with a six-speed manual gearbox, both models feature GTI insignia. Including the red trim strips on the front and rear, GTI badges on the front, rear, and sides, 17-inch Oswald alloy wheels and red brake callipers on the front. The exterior also boasts electrically adjustable and heated wing mirrors with gloss black door mirror caps, black stripe lower door decals (not on black paint), sports bumpers on the front and rear, all topped off with tinted rear windows, a GTI roof spoiler, and chrome exhaust tailpipe. The up! GTI's sporty looks are exaggerated by the sports suspension, which sits the car closer to the road.

Inside, the impressive GTI features continue with the classic? Jacara? tartan seat fabric, GTI door sill panel trims, and a special GTI gear knob. The multi-function steering wheel comes with red stitching and the GTI logo in the vertical spoke. The car interior also includes driver-friendly technology and infotainment features, consisting of a composition radio system with a five-inch color screen, that lets you connect your smartphone via Bluetooth, with the option to use your smartphone as a sat-nav using the? maps + more' option. Does the car interior also feature red ambient lighting, ?3D? red pixels dash with chrome trims to the heating vents and a black roof liner and front and rear carpet mats with red stitching.

Despite its clear sporty design, the up! GTI still maintains the comfort and convenience features to makes journeys enjoyable.

The up! GTI is now open for order at Breeze Poole. For more information and to book your test drive, contact our sales department on
