VW-Up

We are quite tired with reporting about the Volkswagen Up! What with it making news every other day. Now, the compact from German car biggie has bagged the 2012 World Car of the Year title at the 2012 New York Auto Show.

The car was seen competing with 33 other new vehicles which included the likes of the the Porsche 911 and BMW 3-Series. Talking about the Porsche, the 911 was awarded the title of 2012 World Performance Car of the Year.

The compact from VW comes with a 1.0 liter three-cylinder petrol engine that develops some 60 horses in the base version and 75 HP in a pricier one. The manufacturer also plans to come up with an all-electric version, a GT and a full BlueMotion.

What makes us happier with the success of the Up! is that it is headed our way.
