So, the VW Up. It's amazing really that it's taken VW so long to have a proper stab at the city car market. OK, so it had the Lupo a decade or so back, but the Fox that replaced it was very much an afterthought. The Up isn't. This is VW, a serious car company, getting mighty serious about small cars. The Up, it believes, will be its biggest selling car across the globe when it goes on sale in December.

And not just as a three door with a three-cylinder 1.0-litre engine. News scoop, folks: a five door version will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Show in ten days time, and further down the line there'll be other engines. Accord to Ulrich Hackenburg, VW's vastly important R&D boss, "there will be an engine with more than three cylinders, and maybe one with less, too". There will also be other bodystyles on this new platform as well. Yep, VW is going to be pushing the Up hard, which means trouble for the likes of the Fiat Panda, Hyundai i10 and Toyota Aygo.

still running our under-rated Fox as workhorse alongside precious MoveUp after uninvolving Fiat 500 and even less involving Peugot 107; only wish Up had the advertised VW sounds like a Golf door action
