Of the four special edition Volkswagen Up! models that are headed to the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, it can be argued that the least glamorous of the four is the Volkswagen Cargo Up!.

In building the Cargo Up!, Volkswagen intended it to be a "delivery van" of sorts. As such, it’s got plenty of rear space - 1,400 liters worth - it has front and rear underbody protection, side sill trim panels, and just like the rest of its brethren, there’s a roof railing that we imagine will carry all those pizza deliveries.

Inside, the Cargo Up! is pretty bare with the driver seat and the cockpit the only that’s left from the standard Cross Up!. In place of everything that was removed, the Cargo Up! has a flat cargo floor both on the passenger’s side and in the boot. There’s also a fastening system for tools and shipping crates, standard storage bins in the centre console, doors and rear side trim, and a dash pad that’s been painted in ‘Tornado Red’, providing a color contrast to the black metallic color ‘Nano’ trim on the loading areas and black artificial leather with neoprene on the seats.

To ensure safety, the Cargo Up! comes with baggage protection just behind the driver with a safety mesh beside the seat as well as lashing points on the floor and in the side walls.
