The Volkswagen Lupo Citycar suddenly turned Volkswagen's reputation for staid design on its head. With its wacky interior trims, cutesy face and jaunty colour schemes, the Lupo acted as a precursor to the even more extrovert Beetle range, showing that the bosses of Volkswagen had something other than sensible shoes in their locker. What the Lupo brought to the Citycar sector was a palpable sense of quality - a factor that had been sorely lacking in many of its rivals, although the Volkswagen was based on the impressive SEAT Arosa. As a used buy it's at the expensive end of the sector, but few rivals have such an upmarket appeal.
On a pure value for money basis, the Lupo is embarrassed by the broadly similar SEAT Arosa. Most will pay a premium for those appealing looks, the bold interiors and the Volkswagen badge on the nose. Whilst a used Lupo is nothing if not relatively expensive for what it is, at least there's a great deal of forethought and quality built into the design. The best buy is probably the 1.4-litre S model with the automatic gearbox, but if you're really interesting in recouping some of that upfront price, the diesels are attractive. It's a cheeky car with pricing that some may see as cheeky. Still, for the class-conscious, the Lupo may well be too chirpy to resist.
