Technical specifications of Volkswagen Lupo 6X1, 6E1
VW Lupo 6X1 hatchbacks were 3527 mm long, 1639 mm wide, 1459 mm high. Despite compact dimensions, the luggage compartment capacity could reach 830 litres, though it was only 130 litres with unfolded rear seats. Thanks to low ride height of 109 mm, the car was stable on the road.
Dimensions of the 3L hatchback differed slightly from the regular one, by only a few mm. Its length was 3529 mm, width – 1621 mm, height – 1464 mm, road clearance – 103 mm.
12 modifications of Lupo hatchbacks (1998–2005) were released during production years: six petrol and two diesel ones for the basic car, two diesel ones for the 3L and two petrol ones for the powerful GTI.
The most well-known modification was the Lupo 3L 1.2 TDI AT. It was the world’s first car in series production which consumed averagely 3 litres of fuel per 100 km. A 3-cylinder 61 hp engine with a turbocharger and direct injection was installed on the car. The car’s loading capacity was 280 kg.
Thin but strong steel panels were used for production of the body, while the bonnet, doors, seat frames and suspension elements were made of magnesium or aluminum. Due to this, on the average, this modification was lighter than others by 150 kg. An automated manual transmission with Tiptronic function allowed the driver to manually select a gear, optimal in his opinion. Engine power was limited by 41 hp in the Eco mode, and engine torque was kept in the most economical range for specific conditions. Generally, fuel consumption on the highway was 2.7 litres, 3 litres – in combined cycle, and 3.6 litres in the city.
In 2003, the famous Austrian racer Gerhard Plattner covered a distance of 4683 km in the 3L 1.2 TDI AT, having spent only €90.94 for fuel. His trip started in Norway, and ended in the Netherlands. Totally, the racer has visited 20 European countries.
Configurations of Lupo 6X1, 6E1
Initially, the car was available in two trim levels – E and S, and later Sport was added. Special trim variant was offered for the GTI.
Lupo GTI differed from the basic model by expanded fenders, presence of a body kit and enlarged rear spoiler. Double exhaust pipe and low-profile 205/45 R15 tyres underlined the car’s sporty nature. Bosch Aerotwin windscreen wiper blades were installed as a standard equipment. Leather with red seams and aluminum inserts were used for the interior trim.
