The GTI for the modern era. The benchmarking and performance figures of the new up! GTI read like those of a Golf GTI Mk1 catapulted into the modern era. Weight: 1,070 kg (increased by virtue of such things as airbags, control units and the use of high-strength steels). Top speed: 196 km/h. 0-100 km/h: 8.8 seconds. Colours: again classic and typical of the GTI – the single tones of "pure white", "red", "dark silver metallic" and "black pearl". The roof of the white, red and silver up! GTI is also optionally available in contrasting "black". The sports running gear and the ratio of the electromechanical power steering, meanwhile, are geared to crisp handling. A sound actuator ensures that the new up! sounds suitably sporty inside, but is compatible with the city outside.
