Has anyone spotted any pictures or references as to how big the up is in comparison to other cars in it's class?

Say like, compared to a 107, i10, KA or SMART...?

I know I could find all their measurements, but pictures are so much more fun ;)

Cheers Dan - looks a perfect size, I've always seen the Fiat 500 as being a hair too small to look at, giving it a slight clown car look due to its tapered roof.

The Up! looks just right, a small car that isn't novelty small - and the 'boxier' angles give it a solid big car look which is great :)

Fiat 500 is a bit too retro for me, bit like theRobertsDAB radios made to look like the old wireless things. Think it will date quick quickly.

I hate to pick a fight with the admin
, but VW states rather different dimensions (in particular, more in keeping with the up!'s claim to the longest wheelbase in its class). The up! brochure specifies unladen weights of 929 kg/932 kg ASG/940 kg BlueMotion including 90% full tank and 75 kg of driver+luggage.

Probably not much practical use, but here it is compared to its predecessor
