The new five-door Volkswagen up! is now available to order, costing just £365 more than the equivalent three-door model. With wide-opening rear doors and a starting price of just £8,360, getting into Volkswagen’s award-winning city car now really is easier than ever. The five-door up! has the same virtues as its three-door sibling: a 2.42 m long wheelbase that makes for impressive interior space despite a diminutive and easy-to-park 3.54 m overall vehicle length, a capacious 251-litre boot, an efficient three-cylinder engine, new-to-the-class safety features and an innovative infotainment system. Rear passengers in the five-door up! benefit from exactly the same space as those in the three-door model, with 947 mm of headroom (versus 993 mm in the front) and 789 mm of legroom. The rear seat base is set slightly higher than that in the front,at 378 mm (versus 306 mm) giving passengers a clearer view of the road ahead.
