The New Volkswagen up 2012

Volkswagen Up has two engine power options-60 PS and 75 PS. Total displacement is 999cc. Volkswagen Up has defeated 34 other car models including BMW 3 series and Porsche 911. The quality of materials, engine and steering control made Volkswagen Up to stand up among the all 34 contenders. New York International Auto Show declared Volkswagen Up as the 2012 World Car of the Year. It has got 3-door and 5-door hatchback models. It was launched in 2011. It has got 1.0 litre petrol engine with 5-speed manual suspension

Two transmissions are available with the Volkswagen up! – both a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed automatic. The 5-speed manual is called the MQ100, and weighs 25kg. The 5-speed auto is interesting – it weighs just 30kg and it’s not one of those dual clutch transmissions that Volkswagen are so famous for. The new 5-speed gearbox is a single clutch automated manual

The Volkswagen up! uses Volkswagen’s new EA211 family of three cylinder 12 valve engines. There are no diesel engines introduced at debut time. There are two different 1.0 litre (999cc) petrol engines – one with 60 PS output consuming an average of 4.2 litres per 100km, and another more high powered 75 PS version consuming an average of 4.3 litres per 100km. Peak torque is 95Nm between 3,000 to 5,000 rpm, with 90% of that available between 2,000rpm to 6,000rpm.
