The Lupo is a nice tidy car to drive - good on petrol use and safety of the driver and passengers.
It has easily accessible back seats and putting them down to create space if needed is ideal for commuting to work - doesn't scratch easily due to plastic.
I would definitely recomend this car great quality at a good price.
I have owned my Volkswagen Lupo 1.0 E for nearly five years I have covered 61,500 miles with my trusty Lupo and it has proved faultless.
The interior is spacious enough for four adults and the luggage comparment, though small, is practical and very easily extended when the need arises.
The Lupo is able to cope with motorways with ease, though can get a little noisy when trekking in the fast lane though it feels stable and secure.
The Lupo also takes this country's weather in its stride coping with snow, ice, floods and high winds with unshakable ease.
This car puts all other cars in this class and the class above to shame, it is strong, well constructed, (even after five years mine still looks new), fun to drive practical and economical returning around 45mpg in town.
The only down side to Lupo ownership are the dealers who charge a lot for sevicing £260 for the last service mine had and are not very interested in customer care, this will not put me off my next car will be a Lupo.
Well built little car which is ideal for the daily commute to work in an urban environment, the car has behaved faultlessly and is quiet and refined at urban speeds, once on the Motorway it gets boomy in the cabin at about 65mph, but the car was never really built for that function, so therefore no complaint.
It has to be the best built City car i have come across, all the others sampled including Yaris, Clio, Fiesta and Vauxhall felt dated/tinny next to the VW.
The ride is that of a much larger car and extremely good, it's softly sprung so is rolls a little in cornersthough if handling had been a priority then a sportier car would have been looked at.
Overall an exceptional little car that fulfils it's role as a commuting tool brilliantly
Not a good buy - the 100bhp engine is harsh and grating on a long run. It actually needs a sixth gear. It is also not particularly economical, and due to the tank's small size you will be regularly at the pumps.
Plump instead for the 75bhp 1.4, which is smoother and more flexible. The Sport is overpriced for what you get over the S model - alloys, electric mirrors, a stupid central exhaust and not much else. The TDi Sport is, I suspect, a much better prospect.
Reliability was not much good on either of my two Lupos - build quality, electrical and engine issues cropped up. I got rid of each after a year.
In short, the car is overpriced, although it holds its value quite well. If you must drive a car that looks like a LEGO toy, go for the Seat Arosa instead. Or get the Lupo GTi - now we're talking!

I have owned this car for almost 2 years, bought from a used dealer with 60k on and later found it was a ex rental car.... the insurance was cheap…
Ive had this car for one year now and so far has exeeded my expectations. The car is great at overtaking lorries on the motorway and handles very…
