Welcome, smurfbus!


I've admired the Up for years. Of course, it's not available in Canada/US., though it was discussed for Canada (we occasionally get forbidden fruit that the States didn't, eg. first generation Smart Fortwo, Nissan Micra, etc.).

I'm a fan of the latest gen. Mirage. But in every review/comparison against the Up!, the VW won handily (primarily because its suspension was tuned for European tastes vs. the numb & extremely compliant Mirage, which was designed primarily for developing markets).

How serious are you about doing a Kammback/tail? What type of driving do you regularly do?
