The exciting new up! GTI opens for ordering on 6th February 2018.
Following 42 years of success of the GTI badge, the new up! version pays a modern day tribute to Volkswagen’s original hot hatch icon.
What's different about the GTI version of the up! - well, it has a 115PS 1-litre TSI three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, greater down force on the rear axle, sports running gear lowered by around 15mm compared to the standard car, and typical GTI insignia inside and out.
Available in 3 and 5 door models, the GTI styling gives a distinctive look and on-road presence. Choose your own alloy wheel pack, dash pack and paint option. With metallic, pearl effect, premium signature paint and 2 tone options, you can make your up! GTI as individual as you are. There's a black roof option with some colours too.
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 features red ambient lighting, ‘3D’ red pixels dash with chrome trims to the heating vents and an infotainment console, a black roof liner and front and rear carpet mats front with red stitching. Add to that air conditioning and heated front seats and you've got year round comfort.
Infotainment and driver assistance technology takes centre stage with the composition radio system & 5-inch colour screen; that lets you connect your smartphone via Bluetooth. If you use your smartphone as a sat-nav, the ‘maps + more’ dock allows smartphone integration up to a 5.5-inch screen size. With six speakers as standard and music options such as DAB radio and streaming audio via bluetooth, the up! GTI infotainment system offers all the essentials and more!
The up! GTI is available in one engine size, the 1-litre 115PS TSI six-speed manual.
The 999cc three cylinder 12v petrol engine offers up its 115PS power peak at 5,000 rpm – up to 5,500 rpm – while the punchy peak torque figure of 200 Nm arrives between 2,000 rpm and 3,500 rpm. The 8.8 second 0-62 mph time and top speed of 122 mph are firmly in-keeping with its iconic hot hatch predecessor.
The New Volkswagen Up! GTI is open for order from 6th February 2018 at the JCB Group VW dealerships in Kent.
