Has anyone seen or got a fold flat front seat which is now available for 5 door models? Details and photos please if you have! Sounds like a good idea but I've not seen one and my local dealer doesn't know anything about them!

And where did you get this info that there's a fold flat front seat on the 5 door models..? I looked at VW's UK and German sites plus googled the internet and found no mention of such an option for the up!.

Only place I've seen a folding front passenger seat option is in the Polish market which is where mine has come from (without it). Costs about GBP 80.

It's listed on the new price list and specification guide which was sent to me through the post - (dated from 1st May 2013). If you go to Orange Wheels or Drive the Deal, it's listed as an option as well. I noticed that the local dealer was using an old price list and it wasn't listed on there.

Ok I just found it as an option on the German site but have yet to find it on the UK site.

First thing that came to mind when I registered! There are a couple of houses I know which are also called Ty Bach!

The latest up! brochure which includes the 5 door up displays, what I first thought was a fold flat front seat:



Not so sure if it really is flat or just tilted forward.
I did see an early promotional video of the up! way back before I ordered mine last year which featured a fold flat seat, so must have been thought of at concept stage at least.
If I can find it, I'll upload.

AFAIK, the folding seat has only just become available with the new model year.
I'd think it could take a while before the ups with this option actually get delivered ?

It doesn't exist. It's a mistake in the brochure. I found this out when I tried to order it!

I've ordered a High Up, supposedly with a folding front seat. The dealer hasn't told me its not available so I'll let you know when it arrives. It's in transit now so just a few more weeks to wait!

It does exist and they are being delivered ATM on current model year cars on the old continent - newly ordered cars as of early May, thereabout.

Don't understand this. I've seen the letter from VW to dealers saying its a mistake.

When ?
And did you check the letter's date if you saw it recently ?

VW put the folding seat into their original up! brochures etc, when the up! was first released.
But VW couldn't deliver the option back then.

They ARE fitting it now though.

It is an option on 5 door models only.
