It is only a run around for my wife and she is not interested in alloys. I have only driven it a short distance but I loved it. Very nippy and a lovely smooth ride<div id="myWatcherDiv" style="display:none;">

We are going to call it U2

Managed to prise the up! from my wife for an hour this morning. Took it for a long run along a variety of roads and I am thoroughly impressed. The little engine takes some getting used to, especially starting off in first gear, but once mastered it proved to be lively and remarkably quiet. Cruising along at 80 mph ( sorry officer I meant 70 mph) it was much quieter than expected and the ride was really smooth and comfortable. The handling was excellent. I would have no hesitation in taking the car on long journeys. My only criticisms are minor. I find the polished black dashboard reflects the sunlight and is annoying. Only being able to control the electric window on the drivers side was a pain but I suppose if it only had manual windows that would be all you could do. The fuel gauge will also take some getting used to. As it is a large scale gauge with a small fuel tank it does move quite rapidly down but I am sure that the fuel economy will be good.<div id="myWatcherDiv" style="display:none;">
I think that I will let my wife have my Golf 1.6 Tdi and I will keep the up!!!!

Ek - annoyingly I learned to drive in a diesel and this is my first car... When you mentioned you need to get used to setting off in first gear, is that because it's easy to stall?

I drive my girlfriends Mini Cooper (mk1 of the new reboot) and find getting going a right pain... When I'm not thinking about it it's fine... But as soon as I'm under pressure an unexpected stall manages to slip in every now and then :p

Makes busy roundabouts a right stress - 9 times out if 10 it's fine... But that fear of the time it does stall is a right bugger... And stalling once on a roundabout usually leads to another as your trying to get some pace on and over thinking the pedals ;)

Unless you get the revs just right it seems to have no power. Once you have mastered the right amount of revs it is fine.<div id="myWatcherDiv" style="display:none;">
