There aren’t many manufacturers that offer the practical aspects of safety, quality and reliability combined with the emotional pull of beauty, driveability and even love - but Volkswagen manage to pretty much nail it.

As you might expect with a German brand, Volkswagen are best known for superb engineering and a premium fit and finish on all models. VW cars look amazing and feel fantastic to drive, with an excellent safety record to boot.

Best known for...

“Volkswagen” translated literally means “People’s car” and with such a huge spectrum of models that seem to be continually popular, you can see where they’re coming from! From the tiny baby of the VW group, the Up!, to the iconic and sporty Golf - there’s a Volkswagen model to suit everyone.

The two best-selling VW cars in the UK – the Golf and the Polo have both been around for 40 years which is testament to the endurance of quality and design that we have come to expect from Volkswagen.

The Golf’s desirability never seems to fade making it a legend in the motoring world. What makes this hatchback such an ongoing favourite? It could be its timeless good looks; it could be that the size make it adaptable to suit your every need or it could be that it is truly dependable and drives like a dream.

Like the Golf, the VW Polo is a firm favourite, especially with new and young drivers. It’s compact but still looks classy. It’s surprisingly spacious and is hard to beat for value.

Frequently asked questions

What is a guarantor?arrow
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?arrow
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
How does the insurance allowance work?arrow
It’s pretty simple really. Your quote will let you know the cashback amount available on your chosen car. This is the allowance we’ll pay you to put towards your insurance. We’ll pay this directly into your bank account by BACS on delivery of your brand new car!
You’re free to insure the car with any provider (we think it’s only fair!) Of course, we’d love you to choose Marmalade for your car insurance – so don’t forget to get a quote for our black box insurance once you’ve chosen your dream car. You’ll enjoy comprehensive cover, no curfews and you could earn an extra safe driving discount of up to 25% at renewal* if you drive well – on top of any No Claims Discount you earn!
What happens after the first year?arrow
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
How long until I get my new car?arrow
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
