Volkswagen up! now with 5 doors

Volkswagen has added a five-door variant to its up! city car range.

The new five-door Volkswagen up! is available to order now, costing £365 more than the equivalent three-door model.

Powered by a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder engine, the five-door up! has the same dimensions as its three-door sibling: a 2.42 m long wheelbase, a 3.54 m overall length and a 251-litre boot.

Trim levels mirror those of the three-door, with a choice of Take up!, Move up! and High up! models, plus the special edition up! Black and up! White.

As with the three-door, two BlueMotion Technology versions will also be available, offering sub-100 g/km CO2 emissions, and therefore avoiding VED. The 60 PS Move up! BlueMotion Technology returns 68.9 mpg on the combined cycle, while emitting 95 g/km, and the 75 PS High up! BlueMotion Technology offers 67.3 mpg and 98 g/km.

A fully electric version will join the range in late 2013, and an automated manual gearbox will become optional later in 2012.

Five-door models are expected to make up just over half of all up! sales. UK deliveries are expected to kick off in August with prices starting from £8,360 on the road.
