The Up! had a good test last week - 4 adults, two suitcases and motorway, A-road and off-road driving. And it done very well indeed! Drove from Edinburgh to the Trossachs and the Up! took it all in its stride. The only time I had a bit of a problem was when I had to drop the gears on an incline. If you have to slow down all too quickly you are in second gear looking for something with a bit of pull, but I can live with that. But otherwise the Up! is nippy, steady and a good drive.
