The Volkswagen Lupo is a city car manufactured by German automaker Volkswagen from 1998 to 2005.
It was introduced in 1998 to fill a gap at the bottom of the VW model range caused by the increasing size and weight of the VW Polo. Rivals included the Ford Ka, the Opel Agila and the Fiat Seicento. The SEAT Arosa was a badge-engineered version of the Lupo.
The car was available with a variety of engine sizes and trim levels, from budget models through to the GTI variant. The 6-speed Lupo GTI has been labelled a true successor to the VW Golf Mk1, the first true hot hatch.
