I wanted one as soon as I saw the UP GT all those years ago.
I expected it to be released every year after.
When it was finally released I knew which extras I wanted on it.
So in 2019 I got a 5 door with sunroof in silver.
I have still only seen 4 others in my area
My partner who is many years younger than me drives a Volvo & I am 70 & much prefer the GTI.
When asked if it is fast, I answer it is "fast enough" - to have fun.
I have a Lupo GTI and love it
I have a 2012 High Up and enjoy that too
Longtime fan of VW's in general
I work for a main dealer so got discount!
2 other staff members at work have them as demo cars
I drove the first one we got here on garage plates, before it was even registered, and fell in love straight away!
With a remap and some Forge goodies, it's a hoot to drive and makes the right noises!
And still averaged 56mpg on a holiday to Cornwall last week
What's not to like really?
For me, it marked a welcomed return to simplistic FUN motoring as my Golf R and most of my previous cars were just too easy to drive fast and after the novelty wore up, were, dare I say it, a bit boring.
Had a Mii and loved it, SEAT never did an FR so I ordered a GTI as soon as it came out. Had it since Feb 18 and loved it for 25k miles. Just a cracking little car in every way, perfect for my needs and a hoot to drive if a bit bouncy at times!
APR Stage 1
Forge intake and dump valve
Car is amazing now, pulls right up to the redline with no feeling of power loss, in fact it happily bounces on the redline now! It feels like it should have been like this from the factory
