VW up!
The brilliant little VW up! has added another string to its bow by winning the What Car? Car of the Year award 2012 as well as the best city car category.

Described as 'the right car for the right time' by What Car? judges, Volkswagen is on a roll with the up! as it already wears the crown for 'Small Car of the Year' at the Top Gear Magazine Awards 2011.

Could a third win be on the cards in March? We'll have to wait to find out at the Geneva Motor Show, but chances are that this slick little city car will clear up there too.

Set to hit showrooms in March, prices start at £7,995 with a 1E insurance group rating.
