Power, performance and poise. Four decades after the launch of the original Golf GTI the up! GTI continues the sporting tradition.
Its turbocharged TSI engine gives the up! GTI 115 PS and 230 Nm torque. That enables it to reach 62 mph from a standstill in 8.8 seconds and it continues to 122 mph. The weight is kept down to 997 kg, allowing the up! GTI to get the best out of its combination of a powerful engine and an exciting chassis.
These figures compare with the Golf GTI MkI, which had 110 PS, a 0-62 mph time of 9.0 seconds and a top speed of 113 mph.
