f@ck big business.
The 1L (engine size) lupo only came as a gasser which could never dream of reaching 69mpg. The 1.2L diesel did manage 2.99L/100km consumption highway but that was about half the car of this Golf. The Lupo was discontinued because it was an over priced failure. Its been replaced by the much cheaper Brazilian built Fox. The Golf is a much larger car than both the Lupo or Fox.

The next generation LUPO is coming to America with a 3 cyl rear mounted engine.
