UPDATED Eight weeks seems a long time...

AdvantagesSmall, neat, built to last, drives like a dream in the city!

DisadvantagesSmall boot may put some off, not as cheap as its rivals

"...Lupo is a lot of Volkswagen in a small package. It's not as cheap as its rivals, but I guess you get what you pay for. I've never been let down by Volkswagens in the past, and I'm very much looking forward to welcoming this one into the family. UPDATE Well, eight weeks became twelve and my Lupo finally arrived at the start of October, a month late. It had a small dent in one of the wings and a warning light for fuel emissions which wouldn't ..." Read review

meet Oskar....the Loopy Lupo

Advantagessmall, economic, nippy, sold, safe.

Disadvantagesvery small boot, only 2 can sit in the back.

"...selection of cars including the Volkswagen Polo and the Toyota Yaris – we just couldn’t decide! But whilst in a VW garage my eyes fell upon the Lupo. I immediately fell in love with it. It looked much cuter than a Polo. Under the baby face exterior is infact a Volkswagen Polo with the back chopped off. I didnt want a 5 door car so when we compared it to the Polo it made more sense to buy the Lupo. We have a family car so rear seat space and boot ..." Read review

My Lupo Life

AdvantagesNippy little thing, better looking than the Fox

DisadvantagesUnreliability (in my case)

"I bought my Lupo second hand over 2 years ago now (from one careful owner, I was reliabily informed). It had low mileage, the look I wanted and, being automatic, I could cope with the VW gearbox. It started off well. The Lupo is a nippy little thing, especially as an automatic, until it hits about 60mph. After this point you find yourself willing it to go faster - I have resorted to stroking the dashboard and steering wheel in times of immense ..." Read review

The Next Mini maybe

Advantagesbetter than the beetle

Disadvantagesprice for a car this size

"The new lupo has quality written all over it. From the very minute you enter the vechicle you know, it's a volkswagen. Some people say 'it's too small!!! It's meant to be like that!! Some people say it is 'ugly' I say to them 'its actually called character' Some people say ' its dangerous ' 'what if you had an accident' Well I say to them 'it has more stability and saftey features then ever before. Testing shows that you are ..." Read review

Lupo in no-mans land!

AdvantagesSmall, Easily parked, Better looking than Seat Arosa

DisadvantagesNot really the fast model, or the frugal one

Security/Looks The Lupo is, in my opinion, a better looking car than the Seat Arosa (on which its based).However,it aint no ferarri!Security is good with immobiliser fitted as standardI would suggest with any car that you fit a Thatchcam Catagory 1 Alarm (improves security and reduces insurance premiums!)

Lupo ..........

Advantagessmall quite fast and economical

Disadvantagescramped bootspace

"Hi and here are the details of my little Lupo ... its a 1.4 E mine has remote central locking but this was an optional extra so i cannot comment on all versions front airbags adjustable steering colum ABS as you can tell form the spec this is a basic version of the lupo but it is ideal for city driving and easy parking due to its really small dimensions. this is also helped by its good turning circle of approx 10m. the manufaturors ..."

VW's first city car

AdvantagesGreat looks, performance, handling, build quality, stylish interior

DisadvantagesSmall boot, lack of rear legroom,

"Volkswagen's entrant in the sub-Polo city car class combines good quality with relatively low pricing and impressive fuel consumption. Beneath the skin, the Lupo is largely the same as SEAT's Arosa, right down to the engine choice, but the Lupo's nose is a cuter four-light affair, and the dashboard so trendy and stylish it could have come out of a concept car. The real surprise is the quality of the materials used in a car at this price level. From ..." Read review

The Little Green Apple

AdvantagesEasy to park, very nippy, very comfortable to drive, Plenty of room in the doors for maps etc, very efficient heating system, economical on fuel on about town journeys. Quiet to drive. Ample room in the boot for a week,s shop for two adults.

DisadvantagesPeriforal vision sometimes impaired at junctions and roundabouts by the sides where the windscreen joins the sides of the car

"I bought my little bright green automatic Lupo 1.4E a year ago and I would not be without it for town motoring. Although it is a bright colour and not to everyones taste I never lose her in the carpark. The boot lid is easy to open and close for a short woman. The shelf above the boot is better removed until the shopping is packed as it gets in the way of you packing because it does not rise with the boot. A minor inconvenience! No more tip toes to ..."

Flo the Lupo!

AdvantagesNippy, cute!

DisadvantagesGears a bit stiff

"I bought Flo, my lovely little red Lupo, at the end of March this year. I paid what I think was a very reasonable price for the little cutie- £2995 for an 02 reg. She was a nightmare at first because I had learnt how to drive in a diesel, and i must have stalled her 20 times on the way back from the garage, but I love her now! She is the envy of all my friends who have Corsas and Fiestas, as she's far cuter. She is lovely to drive, and very nippy! I ..." Read review

Like a bat out of hell

AdvantagesAn excellant small car which can transport 4 people plus luggage in comfort. Quite nippy to!

DisadvantagesA minor problem with the gearbox when cold, but oil level must be checked first before complaining too much.

"My Grandma has just bought one, second-hand from a dealer. She says it goes very fast and keeps her away from trouble. Please read! You know that the info will be very helpful!!!!! The car has enough room for 4 people to all sit in compfort and luggage in the small boot. The car is nippy and the Automatic gets up to speed with the minimum fuss. The only trouble that we have with the car is a jerky gear change into second before the car has warmed ..." Read review
