I love my Up! White but a couple of things are a slight inconvenience.

1. The drivers door switches for mirrors and windows aren't illuminated.
2. No boot light.

Yes, it would be nice if every switch lit up. It's no big deal but I bet they could have put a bulb in for a few pence!

There are many things which are 'minor' inconveniences but which saved them money.


Few things:

- those interior lights
- not having rear wheel arc shields
- rear drum brakes
- three cylinders instead of four (no just kidding)
- there's no control of passenger side window at driver side
- only one register plate light
- interior handle above door only at passenger side
- only two air out lets on dash

- hat track not going down automatically

and so on and on, please add to list...

If you buy a bottom entry car you must expect a bottom entry specification. I suppose someone will complain there is no parking assist or auto open boot or soft close doors. Edited by: Beevee

How much would it have cost to put a second grab handle/hole thing in the inside of the boot lid? I reckon all of 0.02 pence. If your right hand happens to be holding something, you can't pull the lid down easily with your left hand. So needless and annoying

Good to hear from someone with a similar sense of humour to my self. I prefer to hold things in my teeth to keep both hands free

agree with this..

only two air out lets on dash - compared to my Yaris it takes me much longer to get both hands warm in the winter..

Also I can't believe how long it takes my Uppy todemist

I have parking assist...It is called My Wife....and open boot....again that is her call....she buys....she opens the Boot. Soft close doors? No chance...they just get slammed.



Go well.

So I wonder why you guys complain about the missing illumination in the doors.. Its not like there's a **** of a lot you mess up. You got Window switch, door lock, and mirror heat/mirror adjust.

Also about the missing makeup mirror in drivers side: Why in the name of GOD would you need one there? Drivers seat is for driving, not keeping your face pretty while driving.

I have a high up and yes it is a bottom entry car but for £11500 we expect some of the missing items included, most other manufactures include many of the missed items for less money also. Daft as it may seem ,when I change the car I will still buy another Up.

As you already have the top model, what would make you change it?

After two months of ownership and 3,000 miles only thing I really miss is the driver's seat having a memory setting so it goes back to the correct position after access to the back - obviously I have the 3 door version.

Only two things for me. Center air vent to warm my left hand, and illuminated door switches.
Now I've changed to a Polo I really really really miss my heated seats.

I've never had heated seats and just don't get why everyone loves them so. It's not like the seat is made of ice.

I have got to agree with Alex, the heated seats are amazing, never had them before the Up!, but in the cold they are great for the first few miles. Having a warm seat makes you forget that your hands are cold.



Merry Christmas everyone

You can buy heated seat covers on amazon, but some of the reviews say that they almost caught fire and others melted the 12V socket! Don't think I will risk it although they are only £12 ish.

just three things: auto drivers window, auto lifting boot shelf, and both window controls on the drivers side. ( not much to ask it it V.W. )
