This is the cheapest new Volkswagen in recent memory - a roomy, easy-to-drive city runabout that's cheap to run and well built. It effectively replaced the Volkswagen Lupo, but is far superior with better refinement and more interior space.

Parkers Rating:

3 out of 5

This is the cheapest new Volkswagen in recent memory - a roomy, easy-to-drive city runabout that's cheap to run and well built. It effectively replaced the Volkswagen Lupo, but is far superior with better refinement and more interior space. It may lack the charm and personality of other small cars like the Fiat Panda or Toyota Aygo, but it makes up for it with a versatile and comfortable interior.

There are just a handful of engines and trims available, making the range simple and easy to understand.

What owners say...

 Credit were its due, the rear seat arrangement (Sliding/Cupholders) is very handy.

 Cheap to run as a whole, does the job - incredibly reliable! Starts in any weather and after being stood for long periods of time, with no quibbles!
