Review Summary
It comes down to whether you’re willing to pay an extra few hundred quid for better driving dynamics and that sought-after VW badge on the bonnet – which will help when it comes to residual values. The VW is the class leader, it is better than cousins including the Mii and Citigo as it uses slightly better materials.

Review Summary
The VW Up might be more expensive than a Seat Mii or Skoda Citigo, but it’s classier inside and should hold its value better, so that extra expense is easy to justify.

Review Summary
It may not be as left-field as the original rear engine concept that first appeared at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2007 but it delivers a good level of refinement and an interior of a high quality that’s unusual in this sector of the market.
