WELL now, this is not a car for the shy and retiring.
The Volkswagen XL1 is positively space age and if you want to make an automotive statement, then you’re more likely to make it in this car than a Lamborghini Huracan – that’s the drama of the XL1.

The car will get people talking about it, you and your company.
As our reviewer Sue Baker has already noted in our car review, Volkswagen XL1: a design and technology statement on wheels, in excess of 220mpg is easily achievable in everyday use.
