That's 6860, not bad for a new car.
And the 4k baloon!

Check out the Seat 'Mii' & the Skoda 'Citigo'

Same car as the 'up!' but may well end up being a bit cheaper.

thanks for the video.

Ha, cooper s and up! is like chalk and cheese!

Would she wait for the up! GT coming soon?



just checked out seat's and Skoda's offering, lacking the same character, just looks like a jap city car.

I'm liking the satnav unit, look simple and nifty!

to be fair it wasn't a new CooperS .. but she took the Up! for a test drive and fell in love with it. She only does a handful of miles a year and it suits her.

It was me pushing the Mini as I wanted something fun for the weekends !

She went for the High Up!, the spec is quite impressive for a small car.

The Skoda incarnation looks terrible

I think that's the Rules at VAG: Skodas are allowed to be cheaper than the same car badged VW as long as they look like crap.

SEATs can be cheaper than VWs as long as they are made entirely from nasty black plastic inside.

They have to have some reason for folks to but the VW version!

(Audis can be more expensive as long as they look like an Audi and are less practical, see A1 vs Polo).

They're all like something that the VAGboys would saying was crap looking if a Japanese company made it! (IE most people hate the Nissan Cube, but the UP! is only a Nissan Cube after the application of the VW patented MeltyRoundifier, as applied to each successive Golf )

Don't get me wrong - I'm not criticising it, but I'm saying the only reason it won't be laughed off the roads of Tipperary/Offaly etc is that it's a VW rather than a far eastern make!

DIdnt say there crap looking, just lacking character! I was actually more pointing to the Korean makes, did a wee bit of generalizing saying Jap cars




VW meltyRoundifier seems to be working though!

I'll put my hands up though, I'm a VW fan!
