The tailgate on the Up! is glass. Is it also glass on the Citigo and Mii, or metal? We don't have them in Aus to compare with.I personally don't like the big piece of black glass there.

The Citigo and Mii have a metal tailgate.

The up! has a triple skinned tailgate

Inner is metal
middlle is metal
outside is the glass


The mii and cicigo may only have a double skinned tailgate?

The up! has a once-piece glass outer skin, whereas the CitiGo and Mii, have an upper glass window, and lower metal outer skin. All three have the same middle/inner skins.

Unless someone can do a wind tunnel test, to see what happens at the back, I reckon we will have to put up with it.....and do what Davec86 suggests! ****...I hate cleaning cars!!!

RainX the entire rear glass area (not just the see-through bit) , repeat then when it rains, all the crap just runs off.

Thank you for the tip! I Will try rainX. In the 80:s I had a fiesta with kind of wings on the sides on my tailgate. I remember it worked pretty good!

I doubt it'll work here - it's dust getting kicked up from the road by the (dirty) looks of it.

Can you see them on the sides of the tailgate on the golf?
Once I had a red Golf (not my Golfin the picture)with this kind of "Wings" or what ever they are called.
I also had them on a Fiat Uno. Theyworked good on the Fiat as well.I do not know if they work on an up!
If I could find a pair to buy I would certainly try them on the up!
Anyone who thinks it might keep thetailgate cleaner?

I'm surprised VW haven't spotted an opportunity and added something like these to their up! accessories list.

If they worked I think they would sell loads (and make a fortune).

You could cover the screen with cling-film and remove it when you stop. problem is recovering it after the car wash.
