The Up! scooped the win with the WCOTY award judges noting its responsive steering, sophisticated suspension, efficient engines and overall quality and finish.
Despite an overall length of just 3.54m, the panel judged the Up!'s cabin comfortable for four adults. Euro NCAP has also awarded the Up! an ‘Advanced Award’ for its city emergency braking system.
The WCOTY trophy is not the first award for the Up!, which has already collected the ‘iF design award in Gold’, ‘2011 Goldene Lenkrad’ (Golden Steering Wheel) in Germany.
The Up! is expected to grace Australian showrooms by the end of the year.
