If you’ve seen a futuristic sci-fi movie recently, you’ve probably noticed that all cars portayed in the film are sexy looking, sleek, stylish, no-corner body types. Something like the Volkswagen concept car (yet to be scheduled for production) with a catchy name Up!. The car is said to hit the mass production lines some time in 2012/2013.
Up! is supposed to become an urban favorite with a hope to rival other small cars such as Ford Fiesta, Chevrolet Aveo, Honda Fit and even MINI Cooper. Volkswagen Up! is rumoured to be equipped as follows:
The vehicle is expected to get at least 50 MPG but some estimates for smaller engine trims suggest up to 80 MPG. These are very impressive numbers for a stanard interna combustion engine without “hybrid” bells and whistles.
Expected pricetag in the US may end up at around $10k, which is significantly less than any of the compact size rivals in the same class.
