2001 Volkswagen Lupo 1.4 Comfortline 44 kW 4 cilinder from Netherlands
Fast, cheap and reliable
- Cup holder got stuck, replaced entire unit.
The VW Lupo is an excellent car. It is only 60 hp, but it drives very fast. On the motorway I can reach 90 miles an hour easily.
The interior is very spacious in the front. The seats are very comfortable and very well made, the height is adjustable.
The dashboard is the same as from the 1999-2002 VW Polo, with blue and red lights. It really is a thrill to drive at evenings or at night, just to see the blue dials and the red controls.
My Lupo has the comfortline package, which includes power windows, power mirrors, comfort seats, radio/cd player and 2 airbags.
2 airbags are standard by the way.
The car is very economical, only uses 4 to 5 litres per 100 km.
It has no ABS or other electric gizmos, so I don't have to go the the garage every time to read out an error...
I really like the Lupo in every way, it looks good, it drives good, it is cheap to drive and cheap when bought 2nd hand.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
