The hotel I had booked for a business trip to the centre of Paris last week had an underground carpark that was too low for my van, so I was forced to take the Up!, laden down with about 150kg of product samples.

This is a 300-mile round trip from my home in the north of France and was my first long trip in the Up. I was pleasantly surprised by how refined it was on the motorway and, of course, it's diminutive size was a real plus in the Mad Max traffic in the centre of Paris.

I averaged between 65 and 75 mph all the way, very occasionally going up to 85-90 when overtaking, so reasonably fast and I was carrying the equivalent of 2-3 adult passengers. I was astonished to average 53 mpg.

The Up! really is a very capable little car

Très impressionant UpMan! I've had the same sort of performance going up! to Derbyshire on holiday.

If you see a UK reg up! black around Montreuil on the 19th Feb, it'll probably be me and the missus on our way to dinner, courtesy of the Shuttle special offer of £20 return, can't wait!
