Official: Volkswagen confirms five-door version of the Up! for 2012

Article by Christian A., on October 2, 2011

As you may know already, Volkswagen unveiled the all-new Up! minicar at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show but also new concepts which preview new variants of the car, such as Cross Up!, E-Up!, Study Up! Azzurra Sailing Team, Study GT Up! or the Buggy Up!. In an official statement, the German manufacturer announced that the Cross Up! Concept was actually a preview of the upcoming five-door version of the Up! minicar.

According to Volkswagen, the Cross Up! Concept previews the five-door Up! but with the styling cues of an SUV, including suspension raised by 15 mm all round.

Many of the elements seen on the Cross Up! like the wheel arch and side sill extensions and the black side protection strips above the sills will be familiar to those who recall the last-generation Polo Dune, also known as the Cross Polo in some markets. So, if you like the three-door version of the Up! you have to know that the order books will open this month and the first cars will be delivered in spring 2012. The five-door version of the Up! will follow later in the year.

"On the cross up! study, the red theme continues inside the spacious interior where the seats have red centre panels, offset by grey side panels. The dashboard panel and upper door trim panels are also body-coloured. Other accents, such as the bezels of the air nozzles and the centre console, are designed in black piano paint, while the leather-wrapped steering wheel, gearlever and handbrake all have decorative coloured seams. " said the press release.
