Volkswagen cars for young drivers



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.

Volkswagen models available

If you’re after a small car that’s well made and won’t let you down, the VW range should be a contender. Whether you’re after a car that holds its value, a compact run-around, or you’re looking to make a fashion statement - there’s something here for you.

Frequently asked questions

What is a guarantor?

A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments. Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.

How does the insurance work?

We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Highway Insurance (part of the Liverpool Victoria Group)

How long until I get my new car?

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.

What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?

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.

What happens after the first year?

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!)
