lupo - a pleasure to drive (and own!)

AdvantagesSturdy, great on fuel, a fab drive, cute, lots of character

Disadvantagessmall boot, expensive to maintain

"after spending the first 3 years of my driving life driving clapped out old bangers, i decided to invest in a nice, sturdy car that would last me a good few years and prevent me from being the AA's most frequent customer. I had always wanted a VW lupo, right back in the days when i was learning to drive. Cue the first problem - cost. Being a VW, the lupo is a lot more expensive than similar cars in its class - be it the fiesta, matiz, clio, corsa ..." Read review

Lovely little Motor!

AdvantagesSafety, looks, extra features, headroom

Disadvantagesno space in the boot, underpowered for overtaking

"The new Lupo SE combines an excellent price with some handy features as standard: twin air bags, power steering, alloys and free roadside recovery for a year. Being a Volkswagen, it feels dead solid. At ony one litre, it lacks power, but still drives consdierably better than other cars of it's class. It would be silly to discuss this wonderful little car in terms of performance, though: if you want the drive of your life, go for a bigger car. ..." Read review

Cutie likkle lupo

AdvantagesNice drive

DisadvantagesSmall boot, big heavy doors

"Ive had my vw lupo for almost 9 months now, and its really been s pleasure to drive. Its a nifty little runaround thats perfect for grls like me:-) Its very economical, esp if your a person like me who needs to drive everyday back and forth. Although, i have to say that its a pretty slow car...i cant blame it, coz its only a 1.0 litre engine, it roars when you hit 90-100mph (maybe i shoudnt push the car to the limit eh:0) Its a cute cute ..."

I like this car enough to own one

AdvantagesSaves money on petrol, easy parking, cute

DisadvantagesNot much space in the boot

"FIRST IMPRESSION My parents bought me a brand new VW Lupo in October 2004 and the colour is in Jazz Blue, which is a nice colour for this sort of car I reckon. When I first saw the Lupo after buying it my first impression was "...it's soooo small...", which I really didn't expect as there are not a lot of Lupo owners in the UK compared to other cars. DISCOVERING THE INSIDE I was so excited when I got into the car and started discovering everything ..." Read review

Bored of Ford Ka

AdvantagesA joy to drive.

DisadvantagesTiny boot.

"Ok lets get the boring stuff out of the way first, this car comes with power steering, alloys, twin airbags and free roadside recovery for a year all as, wait for it...standard. But thats not what you really want to know about this car now is it? Look at the picture, it is a beauty. Why anyone would want to drive an ugly Ford Ka when you can buy this sexy little thing is beyond me. It is not the most powerful car on the road, but if a small car with ..." Read review

Tiny car

AdvantagesEconomical, very light

DisadvantagesSmall, very light

"I only interacted with this car for one day, i have lived with Vw's and they have gone through my family since when i can first remember. I have always been very impressed by the cars that VW have produced particularly the Golf and the Polo. I currently drive a Golf which has moved down throughout the family through the years, and when my brothers went in for a service the other day we got given a Lupo. How disappointed i was, yes it is a very ..." Read review

my first car!

Advantagesnice looking, nice interior

Disadvantagessmall boot, a bit noisy

"i'v had my VW Lupo for just under a year now, it's my first car, and although i think its the best looking small car around at the moment, i have been disappointed at the amount of noise it seems to make. it sounds a bit like an extracter fan! the size is perfect for me though, it's small enough to park anywhere and looks cute and innocent enough to always be let out by other drivers. mine is a soft blue colour, which i was unsure about when i ..."

VW Lupo 1.0e

Advantagessmall and economical, lovely design and handling

Disadvantagesno boot space, and very basic on the dashboard

"I brought this nice little car just over a year ago, it was 2 years old and still had a years mot left before it was due to have its first 1. So far it hasnt cost me a penny apart from the petrol and tax and all that, i use it daily and is very easy to handle except when travelling at high speeds on the motorway with all the crosswinds it goes all over the place but apart from that a perfect little city car. the drivers seat and the steering wheel ..."

The little car with a spacious feeling.

Advantageseconomical, reliable, roomy for size, a dream to drive, quiet and comfortable.

Disadvantagesnone

"Bought the Lupo new in 2002. Learnt how to drive in it. It is incredibly easy to handle, nifty in towns and can get up a fair old speed on the motorway. Feels very spacious in the front, with well illuminated dials and a very solid dashboard. Seats give good support and both driving seat and steering wheel adjust for smaller people ( Me). Good safety features, with twin airbags. No complaints about the boot size. It's not a family saloon ..." Read review

Lupo - rare and worth considering

AdvantagesFun, Cheap to run, Rare, Good Build quality

DisadvantagesSmall Boot, Underpowered

"The Lupo has been an excellent car right from purchase. It is a little underpowered from motorway driving, but acts as a brilliant city/town run around. The build quality is superb (as expected from VW), and the handling sharp. A great first car, or high quality budget car to own! Another downside is the size of the boot. You can barely fit a suitcase in there without having to shift the back seats. This, although insignificant to me, may cause ..." Read review

Steer Clear

AdvantagesEconomical

DisadvantagesHarsh, noisy, uncomfortable, poor service

"I bought my lupo 1.0E a year old/12,000 miles. I was used to comfort in my Citroen but decided to opt for a small, economical & reliable car. Initial impressions of the lupo suggested I could live with the harsh ride and noise, but after 4 weeks and 1100 miles it has totally fallen out of favour. It is just too noisy and uncomfortable compared to every other car/van/lorry I have ever driven. An uncomfortable vibration resonates through the cabin whether ..." Read review

vw: virtually wonderful

Advantagesthe perfect city car, looks great, drives even better.

Disadvantagesnot the quickest

"...bloody bargain! With the lupo volkswagen have found near perfection with the base model and no doubt perfection with the gti. From a car manufacturer with a reputation as good as volkswagen you cant be suprised with what you get! the lupo is a volkswagen golf that has shrunk in the wash its pure genius. If you want a car that looks great and is superb value for money, you've found it. ..." Read review

Lupo 1.0 - Can it be that bad !!!

Advantageswill find out soon enough

Disadvantageswill find out soon enough

"I have read the few comments on the Lupo 1.0 and only one seems really bad. Too late for me though because I have just ordered one. It was either a lupo or a getz. In Malta the lupo is not popular because of the price. In fact, to bring the price down to Lm 4490 the local agents with VW had to remove the extras like central locking, power steering and so on. The car is sweet to look at and as it carries a VW badge I decided to buy it. Now, I am really ..." Read review
