VW up! in three packets

The starting edition of Up! will be named "take up!". More comfortable will be middle edition "move up!". Highest version is "high up!" It is small difference against regular packets on e.g. VW Passat with versions like: Trendline, Comfortline, Highline.

None of these packets will  include the new  „City Emergency Braking System“ . This will prevent collision in speeds till 30km/h. The braking system is based on prevention of potential collisions and automatic braking. But for extra money.
