GTI has a fuel consumption of only 5.7 to 5.6 liters per 100 km (WLTP, combined). The up! GTI, which is equipped with a gasoline particulate filter, reaches a top speed of 196 km/h and can accelerate to 100 km/h from standstill in 8.8 seconds. Typical of the GTI model is the sophisticated sports chassis, which combines the agility of a go-cart with a very comfortable ride.
