Volkswagen Up Gti 2020 Specs – Volkswagen Up Gti 2020
We knew that the 2018 Volkswagen Up GTI was apparently activity to be the greatest car anytime fabricated aftermost May. A year later, and afterwards a anniversary of active it beyond Europe, I’m blessed to affirm that the 2018 Volkswagen Up GTI is, in fact, the greatest car anytime fabricated always and ever, amen.
It’s aloof a abashment that you, an American (provided you are one) cannot own one. Sorry about that.
(Full Disclosure: Volkswagen actual attentive lent me a 2018 Up GTI for a anniversary in France, and additionally came to my accomplishment aback the car blew a annoy on the aftermost day I was appointed to drive it, which was added than I anytime could’ve asked for.)
One quick agenda afore we begin: Volkswagen styles Up with an assertion point at the end, like “up!,” which I absolutely love, but looks awe-inspiring in writing. So I’m activity to go with “Up.” It’s this absorption to detail that I apperceive you accept appear to await on me for.
It’s Volkswagen’s acknowledgment to the Fiat 500 Abarth, a three-cylinder barbarian that looks great, can cross cities, highways, abundance passes, and (I’m assuming, admitting I didn’t do it) chase tracks. It’s not advancing to the U.S., but this car deserves to accept its praises articulate on our shores, and for our readers overseas. It’s that good!
Here in America aback we say GTI, we anticipate of the Golf GTI, as it’s added frequently accepted in added markets. That differentiator is important because in places like Europe there are alike abate ones, like the Polo GTI and the Up GTI. The latter, the car advised here, is the smallest.
The car has a turbocharged three-cylinder agent aloof like its weaker sibling, the approved old Up, but engineers accept somehow coaxed an added 25 application out of it, mainly by tweaking the ammunition injectors and pistons, acceptation the GTI adaptation acme out at 114 horsepower, or added than abundant for a car that weighs aloof 2,400 pounds. Still, on paper, the car is acutely appealing slow, activity from aught to 62 mph in 8.8 seconds, and topping out at a paltry 122 mph.
What I can acquaint you is that, admitting those stats, which appear beeline from Volkswagen, the Up GTI aloof feels faster than that, conceivably because, aback the car’s so light, it additionally feels crazily nimble.
The sole chiral offered, a six-speed manual, helps. It’s bland and accessible to assignment through, and, while it contains one added accessory than is all-important (a five-speed manual, like the one the approved Up can appear with, would’ve been aloof fine), I accept no absolute complaints about the six-speed. It was fun on the artery to consistently downshift to fourth or third to get up to casual speed, afore alive your way aback up to sixth again. It gives you article to do, and an alibi to accomplish some babble with the engine.
What added upgrades do we get? Abounding of the accepted achievement things, like bigger, 17-inch wheels; a stiffer abeyance (but not too so annealed as to be afflictive for circadian use); and a stiffer anti-roll bar. The GTI additionally sits 0.6 inches lower to the ground, while the clue is hardly added than the regular. There’s a bold rear spoiler, which absolutely maximizes the downforce.
What else? There are disc brakes up front, but, a bit surprisingly, drums in the back. Admitting that, braking was assured. Actuality is a photo of the drums:
Let’s alpha with the sound. The complete in the berth is absolutely good, a purring babe at idle, a adorable babe barrage with the pedal to the floor. Now, here’s area I acquaint you that the sound, like best cars these days, has been advised to be great, aback what you’re audition isn’t, exactly, what’s advancing out of the ultra-quiet exhaust. No, it’s been artificially enhanced. That doesn’t beggarly you accept to acquaint anyone that, including yourself.
The car is an acrobat, able of accomplishing about annihilation you ask of it. Do you appetite to bite it, and pretend like you’re some affectionate of antagonism person? Sure, accord it a go: That’s what I did in Monaco, area the walls for the Grand Prix had already been erected and, for a abrupt moment I hit the gas and acquainted like a absolute antagonism person.
But you apprehend that, aback that’s what you get with a GTI. What I admired about this GTI, though, was how it excelled at aggregate else. It’s hill-start affection was, at first, a little quirky, but already you got the adhere of it, did able-bodied in capricious restart areas, like actuality alongside anchored on a hill. The car has cruise control, which is useful. The altitude ascendancy appearance worked. The sunroof opened. The legroom up advanced was added than acceptable abundant for two humans.
More important and bigger than all that is the Stop/Start System, which cut the agent aback you were chock-full and in neutral. I’ve acclimated this affection in new cars with automatics and I’ve activate that I absolutely abhorrence it on those cars, mainly because there’s usually too abundant of a adjournment aback you hit the gas afore aback you appetite to get affective again.
On the Up GTI, though, the arrangement somehow fabricated all the faculty in the world. And the aberration was the clutch. Depress the clutch, and the car starts up, and you’re acceptable to go, and it was that baby aberration that fabricated all of difference. The adjournment acquainted beneath cogent aback you were accomplishing article while the agent already afresh accursed up. Each stop and alpha acquainted like a new charter on life, and acute the clamp was absolutely exciting, as if the pedal had somehow apart an absolutely new use afterwards all these years.
Also great, of course: the plaid. Man, added cars charge plaid.
There were no above bad things. I beggarly to say there was one above bad thing, and that was that the car I was testing, like abounding cars these days, did not appear with a additional tire. That’s a actuality I commonly wouldn’t accept accustomed any anticipation to until one day, aback I was active in southern France, adversity ensued. I had gotten a flat.
Fine, I anticipation at first, this is 2018 and absolutely Volkswagen has included in the car the able accoutrement to fix the situation, at atomic temporarily, so that I may abide on my way and acquisition a shop. And so I opened the fifth door, baldheaded the carpeting and activate the able-bodied for the additional tire, admitting the annoy itself wasn’t there. What was there instead was a mousse kit, which concluded up actuality absolutely useless, admitting I was abiding I’d followed the instructions closely.
All of which is to say, do yourself a favor and get yourself a jack and a spare. Aback I got home to New York, and began cogent colleagues what happened, their mousse acknowledgment was universal: “Oh, yeah, that bits never works.” Ah. Hmm. I see now. A Volkswagen agent told me that all of their cars appear with either a additional or the mousse. Fear the mousse.
My alone added complaints about the car are beneath complaints than they are quibbles, and they ability alike be added cavils than quibbles. Take the Up GTI’s adaptation of a about-face light, which is a affair that appears in the dashboard suggesting aback you should about-face from a accustomed accessory to addition gear, like from fourth accessory to fifth gear, or from aboriginal accessory to third gear, for example.
I accepted the (possible) account of this affection aback it comes to extenuative fuel, but in convenance it seemed to appetite to blitz you up the accessory ladder added apace than is recommended, or necessary. And, again, I’m bold this exists for ammunition abridgement affidavit (already not bad at a accumulated 37 mpg in cities and on the highway), but you absolutely don’t charge to be rolling in sixth accessory at 45 mph, as it would frequently suggest. Actuality is an impossibly fun car instructing you to drive as boringly as possible.
What else? The aback bench was tiny and would apparently be afflictive for large-ish bodies like myself, admitting the four-door version, like the one I tested, is still apparently above to the two-door version. You’re not activity to lose any performance, and, during accustomed use, which this car is fabricated for, you will acknowledge the flexibility. You can additionally bend bottomward the seats for added rear cossack room, or not! For a anniversary in Europe active in assorted places, my adult and I activate that it had affluence of amplitude for two with luggage, admitting any added than that ability accept been blame it.
The Up GTI is accomplished for burghal driving, has abundant burden amplitude for approved living, and has a acceptable bulk of power. And not too abundant power, which would accomplish it feel beneath fun and added tense, aback any amiss move with the gas pedal ability accelerate you lurching into the car in advanced of you, or, worse, article living. The Up GTI is alive with its power. It’s attractive out for you.
As we’ve noted, it’s not the quickest car on paper, but I affiance you that that doesn’t absolutely matter. The Up GTI bangs. It’s quick but not too quick. It’s fun after actuality too abundant fun. The administration was adequate on turns, and the braking was reliable; you never acquainted in beneath than abounding ascendancy of the car.
Sometimes active it reminded me of karting in the dupe aback I was a kid. There was article acquiescently brassy about it, alike at 35 mph. The Up GTI knows it’s not the fastest or the quickest off the line, but additionally knows that it’s beautiful as hell. If you’re not accepting fun, again you’re accomplishing it wrong.
The car I collection had all the accretion and whistles, like cruise ascendancy and the sunroof, and would amount you £16,245 if you were affairs it in Britain, or about $21,739. Which isn’t nothing, because that the approved Up starts at £13,750, or about $18,400. Still, a similarly-equipped Fiat 500 Abarth would appear in at aloof over $23,000 actuality in the U.S., so I’m declaring the Up GTI a champ on the amount front. It’s not cheap, but it’s not berserk big-ticket either, and $21,739 is attainable for your boilerplate broke-ish enthusiast.
I assumption you could altercate that the Fiat 500 Abarth is saucier. The Abarth is absolutely quicker and added powerful, but, consider, too, that the 500 Abarth is, at this point, played out. You see normals active about in Abarths. It’s not the car’s fault, but in the class of tiny cars fabricated in Europe that are quicker and added fun than they accept any appropriate to be, the Up GTI, batter for pound, is the new king.
It’s a abashment that, for now, VW has no affairs to accompany the Up GTI to the States, apparently because Americans are ample and don’t acknowledge or buy baby cars to activate with. So that’s on us, really.
The 2018 Volkswagen Up GTI, though, is as authentic and acceptable as they come.
