2011 Frankfurt: Volkswagen Up Europe prices start at €9,850

Volkswagen AG has unveiled its latest effort for the subcompact car market today at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show: the Up! city car.

Starting at just €9,850 ($13,519 USD), the Volkswagen Up! makes out to be its cheapest new model. Featuring two gasoline engines rated at 59-hp and 74-hp, the Volkswagen Up! promises to deliver an estimated 4.2 l/100 km, which in the US makes out to 56 mpg.

Both can be mated to either a manual or automatic transmission. The Up! also comes standard with a stop/start function to aid in boosting fuel economy.

The Up! is separated into three “equipment” versions. “Take Up!” is the entry-level model, while the “Move Up!” is a ‘convenience-oriented model,’ and the “High Up!” is the top of the line model. Two special release versions will be offered as well: the Up! Black and Up! White.

Launch dates will be announced later on as VW didn’t comment specifically on the topic.
