The company claims that both vehicles are based on the top-specification High Up! and each of them will come with a “unique twist” for “fans of loud music, great-looking small cars and questionable puns”.

The Groove Up! version, which will be available as either a three-door or five-door model, features a Fender sound system with six speaker, subwoofer and a 300-Watt amplifier. Also, the interior will gain heated front seats, leather trimmed steering wheel, gear lever and handbrake with orange stitching, while exterior updates will include 16-inch “Upsilon” alloy wheels and black gloss door mirror caps.

On the other hand, the Rock Up! will be offered only as a three-door model and without the Fender sound system. But that won’t make this version less attractive, as it will arrive with a distinctive styling thanks to an anthracite stripe running the length of the bonnet, roof and tailgate and a full body kit, consisting of gloss black front spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser and rear spoiler. In the cabin, the Rock Up! features a choice of black or grey seats and several other high-quality standard equipments.

Both vehicles are powered by the 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that’s good for 75 HP when mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The Groove up! three-door costs £11,640, and the five-door £12,015, while the Rock up! fetches £12,980. The models are available to order as we speak, with deliveries scheduled to start in July.
