VW Up! is coming at Frankfurt next year. image

The compact – city car from VW is slated to make its debut in September next year at the Frankfurt Motor Show, with the car then going on sale towards the end of 2011.

Vw plans a range of new platforms for the Up! (new Lupo) including a sedan, a five-door and a minivan variant – all offered with various engines.

The little car will be priced at about EUR10, 000 (around $14,000). Though we do not know the official name of the UP! (rumors even say it might be the next Fox), we can however expect it to hit markets in late 2011, with an electric variant arriving two years later.

Power will be provided most probably by a variety of three-cylinder engines including a 1.0-liter petrol, a 1.2-liter TSI with 86 PS (84 hp / 63kW), and a 1.2-liter diesel with 75 PS (74 hp / 55 kW).
