Volkswagen's entry into the supermini market is a reworking of the Seat Arosa, but for the extra 800 quid or so the VW is a much classier, and cuter car, and at the end of the day wears the famous VW badge. The Lupo is a smashing car, with its looks being the most arresting feature, from the curvy bonnet and headlights to the attractive console with blue lighting, a feature common to all VWs. There is loads of space in the passenger cabin which makes even longer journeys much more bearable in such a small car (belive me I've driven the length of the M4 in one loads of times). I have driven the 1.4 version which is exceedingly nippy, and great fun to drive. One negative point is the boot, which is rather small, but VW obviously are pitching this as a second car where vast boot space appears to be a lower priority. Other than that this is a well appointed well built (as with all VWs) and distinctive car that stand apart from the dull 106 and frankly weird Ka as well as its strangley insipid sister the Arosa, go out and buy one!
