The VW Fox is a city car available in the UK since 2005; currently the Fox is available as a 3 or 5 door hatchback. The Fox is listed with a long options list to reduce its base price, therefore letting the customer customise their Fox to their liking. It did come with standard twin airbags and anti-lock braking system for safety measures.
The new Volkswagen Fox in Scotland is available with a choice of two petrol engines, a 1.2 litre three cylinder 54bhp version and a 74bhp 1.4 litre version. Both engines are adequate enough to move the light weight Fox along. The Fox was never designed as a hot hatch, the 0-60 for the smaller engine is over 17 seconds and the larger 1.4 litre does it in 13 seconds.
As it is a city car the steering is very light and nimble, the suspension as a whole provides decent levels of comfort. For a light weight car the Fox corners very well and grips to the tarmac very well. The only size and weighted related issue is that some of the larger city humps to throw it off course.
Limiting the Fox to just a city car is almost doing it injustice, it holds its own on longer motorway journeys too. Road and wind noise are suppressed from the cabin making it a quiet and smooth ride at the national speed limit.
This stylish city car with the very desirable badge on the front costs only £7,445, the top of the range 1.4 Urban will set you back £9,100. That is a lot of Volkswagen for the money!
