BOTANY, AUSTRALIA – May 22, 2013: After 18 months and over 15,000 UK sales, the Volkswagen up! continues to win plaudits, having been named Best City Car in the Fleet World Honours for the second year in a row.

The Fleet World Honours are presented annually, and the judging process combines the expert opinion of the Fleet World editorial team with the objective values provided by a number of leading leasing companies and fleet data providers.

The judging panel is chaired by Steve Moody, Editor of Fleet World, and includes John Kendall, Alex Grant, Natalie Wallis, Dan Gilkes and Ross Durkin from the Fleet Worldeditorial team. Residual value, maintenance and reliability data is provided by ALD Automotive, Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions, Lex Autolease, LeasePlan and Arval. Market value data is provided by EurotaxGlass and VIPDATA.

Commenting on the up!, Fleet World Editor, Steve Moody, said: “Volkswagen’s up! continues to set the benchmark for quality in a segment that is often more to do with cheapness. As a result, it is hugely desirable, and yet economical to run thanks to its efficient engines. It’s pretty spacious too, for such a compact car, illustrating clever design and packaging.”

Adding to an already impressive package, like all new Volkswagens the up! comes with a three-year/ unlimited kilometre warranty which includes roadside assist, and benefits from six years of capped price servicing.
