A new Volkswagen Beetle

The iconic car with a modern twist

The sporty, eye-catching, Beetle is a stunning coupe that's reassuringly safe and a delight to drive.

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

What is a guarantor? Plus Icon

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? 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.

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

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? 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
