Originally introduced at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, the VW Up! has been given a mid-life facelift and will be launched in the updated version this year. The public premiere of the Up! facelift has taken place at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show today.

The 2016 VW Up! is the company’s second model after the VW Golf TSI BlueMotion to pack a 1.0-litre TSI turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine. The 3-pot engine produces 66 kW (90 PS) and 160 Nm of torque. It is also worth noting that this is the first turbocharged engine powering the VW Up!. With the new engine, the Up! can do 0-100 km/h in 10 seconds and hit a top speed of 185 km/h. Fuel economy and CO2 emissions figures are rated at 22.73 km/l and 102 g/km respectively.
