This new Volkswagen, which made its international debut at the 2005 Leipzig Motor Show, will be available to order in the UK from 16 January 2006.
At 3.83 metres, it is longer than a Lupo but shorter than a Polo.
It will be offered with three doors, a choice of two petrol engines - a 1.2-litre 55 PS and a 1.4-litre 75 PS - and two trim levels. The entry level Fox will have power steering, CD player, ABS, twin airbags and the lowest possible insurance rating – 1E.
The Urban Fox - the higher specification model - will come with electric front windows, body-coloured bumpers and door mirrors and remote central locking. The Urban Fox will have an insurance rating of 2E.
A sliding rear bench seat is standard in the Urban Fox and optional on the Fox – it moves 15cms lengthways and is split 50/50.
