Can't say for sure as I haven't made a direct comparison but I think the dials are the only cosmetic change. The 2013 model also has hill start assist which you will only notice if you can bring yourself not to use the handbrake for your hill start!

Mine does, but it only works on a significant incline...

I've not tried to see if it works yet, as there are surprisingly few steep hills in my area, just on the edge of the Fens. I'm sceptical, as you could get used to it and then get into another car and get caught by an expensive surprise.

Works a treat, holds just long enough to move foot frombrake to accelerator....seamless in operation....great device.

Heh, I also want the hill-start assist.. But I have my Up already from March 2012, so psychologically this compensates

I had hill start assist on a panda from 2004. It's very useful in my opinion. it helps pass crawling in the lake district.

I've learned that there's also more changed that can be made with the computer at workshops. My local dealer told me that you can change several things in there.. Amongst them should be ability to have rear lights turned on permanently (safety boost around dusk and dawn + foggy weather) and that they should be able to lock the doors when you drive off and reach a speed over 20 kmph

I was a HH cynic but I admit I was wrong - very good little device, don't even notice it doing its thing!

2013 (well 10/2012 on) £200 extra for white! No Reason whatsoever other than profiteering!
