Volkswagen Beetle

First launched in 1938 the VW Beetle has become something of icon with its svelte, instantly recognisable, curves. With a new re-launch, the Beetle retained its distinctive shape combining retro styling with a contemporary new look. 

If you’re after a sporty yet premium supermini which drives like a dream then this could be the car for you. Best of all you can bag yourself a brand new VW Beetle with a low deposit and free insurance, discounted insurance or cashback.

Reasons to love the Volkswagen Beetle

A lively, fun drive Plus Icon

Based on the bodywork of a VW Golf, you can expect the Beetle to be a decent drive. The well-weighted steering is light and responsive and it’s got plenty of grip, plus it’s surprisingly sprightly so you’ll easily be able to nip into town and won’t have a problem handling narrow streets or tight parking spaces.

A blend of retro and cutting-edge looks Plus Icon

With a nod to its vintage past, the style and look of the Beetle are much the same but Volkswagen has really upped its game in terms of the styling and feel of the car. The bonnet and roofline has flattened slightly plus it’s wider, lower and longer than the original car helping to give a new lean and mean look.

The interior looks premium and grown up with some excellent quality materials. There’s a 5-inch touchscreen in the middle of the dashboard which includes a CD player and SD card slot. Optional extras include DAB digital radio, and a Multi Device Interface that allows you to hardwire your MP3 player, iPod or USB stick to the car. It’s comfortable and supportive with plenty of options to adjust the seats so you’ll be well catered for no matter what your height. The back seat struggles more with space so your taller mates may prefer to sit up front.

Excellent for safety Plus Icon

As you’d expect with a Volkswagen, the Beetle earned a five star Euro NCAP rating and scored an impressive 92% adult occupant safety rating and a child occupant safety rating of 90%. It comes with six airbags, electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes as standard.

Frequently asked questions

How does the insurance work? Plus Icon

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 Allianz, one of the largest insurers in the UK.

Will I need to have a black box in the car? Plus Icon

Your new car will be covered by our New Driver Insurance. This uses clever black box technology to help you develop your driving skills – and if you drive safely and remain claim free, you can earn an additional discount at renewal. The majority of applicants will receive free insurance, but where this is not available we will offer you discounted insurance or cashback.

What happens after the first year? Plus Icon

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? Plus Icon

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.
