Frequently asked questions
What is the Volkswagen Fox?
In production from 2006 to 2012, the Volkswagen Fox was VW’s smallest and cheapest car before being replaced by the sporty little Up!.
Although it’s no longer available to buy new, the VW Fox is still a popular first car for many young drivers. Thanks to its compact size, accurate steering and good visibility, this small city runabout is incredibly easy to park, manoeuvre and drive, making it ideal for new and inexperienced drivers.
It may not have the refinement or street appeal of its successor, but the Fox is cheap to buy and run. Available in 1.2 litre or 1.4 litre petrol engines, the Fox returns a decent 42.2–46.3mpg, which is ideal for around town driving. CO2 emissions aren’t as low as you’d expect from a small city car; output is around 139g/km to 159g/km, so what you save on running costs you may end up paying in road tax.
It may lack the charm of rivals such as the Fiat Panda or 500 but, all-in-all, the VW Fox offers great value for money, especially when budget is an issue.
