Wraps off as Volkswagen Fox gets a spring airing

VOLKSWAGEN has unveiled its new Fox city car ready for its UK debut at the start of 2006.

The Fox, Volkswagen’s new entry-level small car, made its international debut at the Leipzig Motor Show in Germany.

At 3.82 metres, it is longer than a Lupo but shorter than a Polo and the line-up is focused on simplicity.

It will be offered as a three-door hatchback only, with a choice of three engines – two petrol units and one diesel. The petrol engine range comprises a 1.2-litre 54bhp and a 1.4-litre 73bhp, while the diesel option is a 1.4-litre TDI with 73bhp.

Features include a sliding rear bench that moves 15cm lengthways and is split 50/50.

UK prices for the Fox, along with specification levels, will be announced closer to the car’s launch early next year and are expected to be competitive within its segment.
