The five-door Volkswagen Up! has been revealed by the European patent office.

Previewed by the Cross Up! concept, the production model has a utilitarian design with two new rear doors.

Engine options will likely carryover from the standard model, so expect a 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol with outputs of 60 PS (44 kW / 60 bhp) and 75 PS (55 kW / 75 bhp). There could also be a natural-gas unit which produces 68 PS (50 kW / 68 bhp).

Volkswagen has already confirmed the five-door Up! will be introduced later this year, so look for an official unveiling in the near future.
