Comments

The up! shows good or adequate control of pollutant emissions in most of the tests. In the high-load highway test, control of particulate number is marginal and that of carbon monoxide is weak.

Our verdict

The up! tested here is the GTI with a one-litre turbocharged engine, equipped with a three-way catalyst and a gasoline particulate filter to control pollutant emissions. The Clean Air Index of 9.2 shows that these measures work well. In the high-load highway test, control of carbon monoxide is weak, but in the other lab tests, and during the on-road drive, control of pollutant emissions is almost entirely good. Energy efficiency is generally adequate in the lab tests but is marginal in the high-load test. Overall, the up! GTI achieves a very creditable four-star rating with good energy efficiency and pollutant control.
