insurance group 9
RRP 11999

Lupo, as "T-sport" sounds lame and Toyotas in general are a big NO NO!

thats what i thought, Lupo has too much quality compared to yaris but then the price shows it. second hand is even more ridiculous, they dont depreciate much just like other volks!

Re: New Yaris T-sport OR New Lupo GTI

My mate had a T-sport on loan and his verdict was don't knock them until you've tried them. Toyota may be as dull as dishwater but they seem to be changing there image. As for the lupo, that german badge just means it'll hold it's value and not a lot else anymore. The Yaris is likely to be more reliable. As for the 106 Gti, after spending a whole day sorting my pals 106 rallye I wouldn't touch one with a long stick(unless someone else is fixing it). I don't know what they are thinking about when they built them. "Lets stick on parts that'll last a week"

Re: New Yaris T-sport OR New Lupo GTI

yes thats exactly whats he thinking. he land himself a new job and he wish to buy something thats quite nippy, fun, and narrows it down to these two choices. they both are quite similar cars in some respects and both are very reliable too.
hopefully he'll keep the car for about 5-6 years so he could save up for wedding and house etc. feeding one of these cars wont be hard to cope, just dont know if he should test german vs jap reliability.

lupo would be my choice too, more style, agression. i guess the quality itself in this little package justifies the price tag plus service charge and the expensive parts! or maybe not??

a friend who i used to work with offered me a go and i can honestly say that i have never driven a little car like it in my life

the handling on them is really good, hardly any body roll at all....he had the brakes upgraded to drilled / grooved 1's and it went like stink for a little car ...he was toying with the idea of getting it chipped but before he could do it....he left for another job...have seen him driving past a few times and he still has the same car though

if you are thinking about getting a yaris t sport....dont do it....go for the lupo as you will not be dissapointed...and get a black 1 as most of them i have seen are silver

Re: New Yaris T-sport OR New Lupo GTI

We have (besides the 147 Selespeed) also a Yaris T-sport.

It's a fantastic little thing, i drive it with equal joy as my bella.

I have driven a lupo before and the verdict is so easy.

T-sport all the way!
It's a real drivers car.

Re: New Yaris T-sport OR New Lupo GTI

hehe i have to stick up for Peugeot here

in my 2 years of rev limiting ownership of my 106GTi - i never had any problems with it - except an alternator problem at one stage - it was a great car

127 bhp - and im pretty sure its lighter than a Lupo

the specs on a Lupo Im pretty sure used to come in around the 8.4 mark r sumthin - 106GTi comes in at 7.4

yes i know 0-60 measurements arent everything, but they're certainly something
