Volkswagen Lupo Overview

The Volkswagen Lupo is classed as a city car and was produced by the German car manufacturing company the Volkswagen Group. This car was in production from 1998 – 2005, and shared its design with the Seat Arosa, as Seat is a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group. The Lupo was replaced with the Fox in 2005. These little cars are great fun to drive, are really well made and are cheap to run. There is not much room in the rear or in the boot and the Seat Arosa is much cheaper for the same car. There is a variety of different engines and the GTi version is really nippy. Does this sound anything like your experience of the Lupo?

Volkswagen Lupo History

The Volkswagen Lupo was introduced by Volkswagen to fill a gap in the market that they were not currently reaching. The VW Polo was increasing in size and weight all the time and VW thought it necessary to bring a car into the city car class. The Seat Arosa was introduced in 1997 and is the same car as the Lupo. The Lupo came out the following year and its name is Italian for Wolf, as the Lupo was built in Wolfsburg, Germany. The Lupo 3L aimed to be the first car to use only 3 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres. It had to use different materials and technologies from the standard Lupo to achieve this. The Lupo ceased production in 2005 and was replaced by the VW Fox.

The Volkswagen Lupo was available in 1.0, 1.4 and 1.6L and the diesel options were 1.2, 1.4 and 1.7L.
