Volkswagen Fox Overview
Produced by Volkswagen's Brazilian division, the Fox debuted in 1987 as a subcompact available in several different configurations, including an entry-level two-door coupe and a four-door sedan. A two-door Fox station wagon was also available for a few years before being discontinued after the 1990 model year.
As might be expected with a subcompact, power was minimal, provided of a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that generated just 81 horsepower. That would continue to be the Fox's powerplant throughout its U.S. run.
Standard features were also limited. Bucket seats, power brakes, a rear window defroster, and a passive restraint system with motorized shoulder seat belts (lap belts were buckled manually) were among the few standard amenities offered during the Fox's run. Air conditioning was added as a standard feature for the vehicle's final year.
Despite its lackluster engine and lack of amenities, the Fox was considered to be a reliable, fuel-efficient, and durable vehicle, with a decent ride for the money and a quick engine that made for a fun ride.
