VW Space Up! is the five-door version of the Up! concept launched in the world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show salon. Space UP! is 23 inches wider and four inches taller than the three-door version presented at the German salon. With only 3.68 meters in length, Space UP! fails to provide a considerable space in the back of the engine due to its positioning, like the original Beetle or the van of that time, Bulli.
The car offer easy access to the passengers in the cabin, so that the concept proposes a counter-opening doors by removing the central pillar. VW engineers have opted to replace the asymmetric two doors tailgate, thus ensuring an easier loading for the trunk. It has a minimum volume of 220 liters and if the rear seat is folded, the machine offers a volume of 1005 liters for luggage.
The board is taken from the concept shown in Frankfurt, with some minor changes. Thus, the information of the road speed, fuel level and carbon dioxide emissions are displayed on an 8 inch display. In the middle of the dashboard is placed another touchscreen display, which is part of the system known as MMI (Man Machine Interfaces), where the machine can access all functions. Another interesting concept is the integration of children in the rear seats, including side supports needed to ensure the safety for children.
