Volkswagen has announced plans to offer Groove up! and Rock up! special editions in the United Kingdom.

The Groove up! is available as a three- or five-door hatchback and comes nicely equipped with heated front seats, a leather-wrapping steering wheel, a Fender audio system and a Maps & More infotainment system. The model also has gloss black mirrors, tinted windows and 16-inch alloy wheels.

The Rock up! is available exclusively as a three-door hatchback that features anthracite body stripes and a body kit that includes a front spoiler, revised side skirts, a rear diffuser and a tailgate-mounted spoiler. Other highlights include air conditioning, heated front seats, a six-speaker audio system and a Maps & More infotainment system.

Both models are powered by a 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol engine that develops 75 HP (55 kW) and 95 Nm (70 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is connected to a five-speed manual transmission which enables the special editions to average 60.1 mpg UK (4.7 L/100km / 50 mpg US) with CO2 emissions of 108 g/km.

Both models are currently available for order and the first deliveries are scheduled for July. The Groove up! costs £11,640 to £12,015 while the Rock up! retails for £12,980.
