In February 2014 Volkswagen introduced a modified version of the up! for
Latin America. The Brazilian-built up! differs from its European
counterpart in length and high (it's 65mm longer and 20mm higher from the soil), thanks to revisions to the
floorpan's rear section to accommodate a larger fuel tank (50L instead
of Europe's 35L), a full-sized spare wheel and more cargo space. All
versions have revised tailgates with a painted metal section (like the
Seat Mii's and Skoda Citigo's) instead of the dark glass trim used in
Europe. The 5-door Brazilian up! also uses a different rear door design
with sectioned glass and wind-down windows. The South American model
retains the European version's safety levels with a five-star crash
rating and ample use of high-strength steel element.

Yes I have! I'm still on that period (just 150km on the clock).

After 1500 you can start increasing the RPMs gradually until reaching the maximum over 500 more kilometers.
