Volkswagen conducting road tests of the Up! in Brazil


Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of I love teamwork and talking about cars.

We’re still waiting for word from Volkswagen India on the launch of the Up! but over in Brazil, the company has reportedly begun tests.

Five prototypes of the three-door Up! were flown in from Germany recently and would be driven for a distance of 1 million kilometers before they reach the production line.

The report also mentions that the Up! could replace the VW Gol (not to be confused with the Golf) in 2014 though the information is not verified.

Volkswagen has introduced 3- and 5-door versions of the Up! in Europe and is conducting feasibility tests in emerging markets for its launch.

The Up! is designed for the segment below the Polo. The competition includes some names that have a strong legacy like the Hyundai i10, Ford Ka, Kia Picanto, Toyota Aygo, Fiat Panda, Renault Twingo and Chevrolet Spark (Beat) in global markets.
