Excellent

Sturdy, great on fuel, a fab drive, cute, lots of ...

small 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...

“Lovely little Motor!”

published 22/08/2000

Safety, looks, extra features, headroom

no 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...

nice looking, nice interior

small 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...

A joy to drive.

Tiny 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...

Saves money on petrol, easy parking, cute

Not 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...

Small, 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...

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...

“Steer Clear”

Economical

Harsh, 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...

Fun, Cheap to run, Rare, Good Build quality

Small 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...

will 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...
