Volkswagen Cheer Up! has a catchy name!
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
If the VW Coss Up! was not your cup of tea, then Cheer Up!
That’s the name of Volkswagen’s latest model in the Up! line-up. While it is not vastly different from a normal Up! city car, the Cheer Up! does get a few set of goodies such as –
- Anthracite 15-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels with color-matched mirror casings
- Galvano gray side moldings
- Chrome-trimmed front fog lamps
- Uniquely-patterned seats
- RCD 215 radio/MP3 compatible CD player
- Chrome surrounds on the air vents, radio bezel and instrument cluster
Considering this is just a special edition, all engine/transmission configurations can be specified, including the 60 hp and 75 hp petrol units as well as the natural gas-powered 67 hp eco up!
To really cheer you up, the VW Cheer Up! prices start at €11,825, €895 less than a equivalently equipped standard model.
VW India has no updates for us on the Up!’s local launch. At least two Up! test mules were seen testing around VW’s Chakan plant in Pune wired to laptops and data loggers, but how VW India would proceed with the launch of the Up! and its derivatives is something we have no clarity on this morning.
