The Up was initially launched by Volkswagen UK purely with a manual gearbox, but as compact cars like these tend to spend their lives mainly running round the city in traffic, an automatic gearbox was deemed essential to sales in the UK. Volkswagen in its infinite wisdom decided to do its usual trick to confuse customers and instead of just calling it automatic, they decided to give it the initials ASG (standing for Automated Shift Gearbox), so any UP model you see listed above with the initials ASG next to it means it's got the auto fitted. The VW Up automatic costs about £600 more than the equivalent manual version in the UK, and as it's so efficient it actually helps lower CO2 levels.
