That the Volkswagen Up! is coming to India is a well known fact. The car was first seen in India in January last year and the 5 door version of the Volkswagen Up! has been caught testing on Indian roads on numerous occasions. Once again, the car has been caught testing in Pune and from the looks of it, the test mule seems to be undergoing suspension tests on Indian tarmac.
The Volkswagen Up! will be positioned below the Polo hatchback in Indian market and the upcoming car will be VW’s second launch in the very popular Indian small car segment. The car will be pitted against the Maruti Wagon R, the Chevrolet Beat and the likes. On the inside, the Up! 5 door will borrow a fair bit from the Polo and will come with headrests integrated into the front seats. Expect class leading quality of materials and a long equipment list.
The Up! hatchback will be powered by the Polo’s 1.2 liter 3 pot petrol motor and there are good chances that the Polo’s 1.2 litre TDi diesel motor too would head to the India spec Up!.
