Volkswagen has confirmed the 2012 up! will be offered in a five-door body style.

Previewed by the recent cross up! concept, the production model will likely lose the crossover-inspired styling but retain the same basic shape.

Engine options are expected to carryover, so there should be a 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol with outputs of 60 PS (44 kW / 60 hp) and 75 PS (55 kW / 75 hp).

Regardless of the final details, the five-door Up! will be launched late next year.
