How long do VW ups last?

Registered. My experience of small cars is that they last 10 years, but really at 8 or 9 years they get expensive to maintain. Rust sets in at 10 years and major components fail, such as the suspension, or ECU. Obviously if you only do 5000 miles year, and avoid salted roads, it’ll last longer.

What’s the best thing about a Volkswagen Up?

The best thing about the Volkswagen Up is that it doesn’t feel like a small car – not in the way it drives, the material choices of its interior or the way it rides. It’s only when you get out of it and see how much space is left over in a standard parking space that you remember that you’re in a bantam Volkswagen.

Which is better VW Up Beats or high up?

The Up Beats is a separate trim available with all three engines. It’s slightly less lavishly equipped than the High Up, but if you love your music you won’t care about that, because it brings a much more powerful sound system. On the road, the two lower-powered engines are a little weedy, so we’d recommend seeking out the 89bhp version.

What’s the range of the VW e-up?

Said powertrain is much improved since we first copped the e-Up way back in 2013. Then, it made do with an 18.8kWh battery, and a best-case scenario range of 118 miles – on the old NEDC test. Best of luck with that. Fast-forward to 2020 and the e-Up’s batteries are much more power-dense, and only a smidge heavier.
