Just returned from test drive in Take up!Very impressed with space inside, I'm 6ft 6" and there was lots of legroom with decent space in rear(much better than my old mini one). Exterior looks good, facia a bit bland,I had to stop to adjust the steering to its highest point as I couldn't see the speedo from 30 to 90. The front seats were a problem as they were difficult to move to let rear passenger out (I think theres a better release system on high up/ White).
Dealer was not moving on discounts/ trade in. Said delivery would be 12 to 14 weeks....... Managed to get slight offer of a tank of fuel, free Scotchguard and paint protection.
Overall car was as good as write up in press releases but have ordered a High up as its got the more powerful engine, found the base model very flat when pulling away from a roundabout onto the A69 on a slight uphill stretch, teetered to get to 50mph. Engine quite quiet, boot a lot bigger than I expected. Now a long wait till May/June unless theres a one in the VW system.
Have ordered 16" classic alloys ... hoping the steel spare will match!
It looked muchbigger than a Ka, we had a mini one for 5 years, the UP is certainly different but its more boxy and the interior is very roomy. The speedo/rev/petrol gauges will take a little getting used to.
