VW up!
Great article here about the VW up!. Make sure to read!

Dubbed New Small Family (NSF), Volkswagen’s new baby now follows the template set by the revolutionary new Toyota iQ. Why switch to conventional front-engine layout? Simple. It’ll save VW €750 million. That’s £600m…

Why will the front-engined VW Up cost so much less?
