Volkswagen has revealed the cross up!, a rugged version of VW's city car that's available as a five-door model only and could be coming to the UK.

Unlike the standard Volkswagen up!, it gets plastic wheelarch protectors, chunkier bumpers, roof rails and 16-inch alloy wheels.

Engines are identical to the regular city car’s, so that means a 1.0-litre three-cylinder available with two outputs: 74bhp and 54bhp. All models will be front-wheel-drive only. Inside there’s unique upholstery and extra chrome trim.

VW is currently deciding whether to bring the cross up! here, with a spokesman claiming the decision could go either way. If it does, the car will top the up! range, starting from around £11,780.
