Popular sports brake pad and disc options now available for this much-loved hot hatch

With its revvy, turbocharged three-cylinder engine, six-speed manual gearbox and low kerb weight, it’s little wonder the VW up! GTI has been dubbed the ‘rebirth of the Mk1 Golf GTI’ by the motoring press.

One of the most thrilling vehicles currently in the supermini sector, many up! GTI owners have unsurprisingly enjoyed their cars in both spirited road driving and track day conditions in recent years.
