Unfortunately, this Volkswagen model will not be updated anymore, because the owners of the company consider it inappropriate to update this model. Experts believe that this is due to too high costs for the production of Volkswagen Lupo, and from this it can be seen that this model is economically unprofitable to continue to produce.
In addition, the Lupo model is very tiny, of course, because of this, the circle of potential car buyers is narrowed to a minimum. In the near future, Volkswagen plans to introduce a new model to the world – Volkswagen Tupi.
