Volkswagen Golf

Despite 40 years in the market, the Golf remains an absolute legend in the motoring world and is renowned for being a classy, well-engineered, quality car. This iconic hatch offers a fab mix of performance, fun and value.

If you’re looking for a stylish motor that is spacious, reliable and fun to drive then this could be the perfect choice. Best of all you can pick up a new VW Golf with a £500 deposit and we’ll pay for your first 12 months’ insurance with us. Where we’re unable to pay the full amount, we’ll offer you a contribution to Marmalade insurance or cash towards your insurance elsewhere

Reasons to love the Volkswagen Golf

Understated class

Now in its 8th generation, the VW Golf is confidently classy. There have been few updates to give this car a sportier look and it’s a solid car built with a reliability that you’d expect from Volkswagen. The interior is superb, furnished with premium materials and a real sense of luxury. The seats are so comfy you’ll have kick your mates out at the end of a night out!

There are some nice touches with the kit too. All Golfs come with a 10” colour touchscreen infotainment system with touch-sensitive functionality, Driver Alert system, fatigue detection and Dynamic rod sign display as standard. Optional extras include voice activation, and the first-rate Dynaudio sound system is a must if you love your music.

Whatever you want it to be

Now in its seventh generation, the VW Golf is at its best with well weighted-steering and strong brakes. The Golf is a brilliantly stylish drive, gliding effortlessly down the motorway and easily handling tight corners and narrow streets in town. Whether you’re after a city run around or looking for something that can handle longer, more serious road trips, this accommodating hatch is bound to suit you.

VW Golf

Low running costs

Whilst the Golf is a bit more expensive to buy than many of its rivals, VW have ensured running costs are low. Even the racy 2.0 litre engine has an impressive 47.1mpg fuel economy and a decent score of 139g/km for CO2 emissions.

In terms of insurance the lower models start at a mid-range seven group but can rise as high as groups 34 for the high performance sportier models.

VW Golf

Room to boot

There’s plenty of space for you and four other mates plus it’s got a hugely practical boot so you’ll be sorted for the festival season. If you’re tall or you’ve got tall friends they’ll have no problem getting into and out of this car especially if you opt for the five door model - plus they won’t be complaining about comfort too.

There’s lots of smart storage space in the Golf including a large glovebox, deep cubby holes, huge door bins and various cup-holders. With so much room for all your gear, there’s no excuse for not keeping this car tidy!

VW Golf

Remarkable safety record

Volkswagen pride themselves on their sense of well built, safe and reliable cars and the Golf doesn’t disappoint. Euro NCAP rated the Golf an impressive maximum five stars for safety with a notable 94% rating for adult occupant protection.

All cars boast seven airbags along with electronic parking brakes with auto hold function, electronic tyre pressure monitoring, stability control and hydraulic brake assist. There’s plenty of extra safety options should you feel the need to upgrade your Golf further.

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 work?arrow
For the majority of cars 12 months’ black box insurance is included in the deal. If, for any reason, we’re unable to offer you 12 months’ insurance, we’ll offer a contribution towards your policy with Marmalade and let you know how much you need to pay, or we’ll give you a cashback to help you get cover elsewhere.
Where your car will be covered by Marmalade black box insurance, we’ll send you a small device to fit the windscreen of your car and ask you to download our driving app. This measures how you’re driving and lets you keep an eye on your driving score. You’ll be pleased to know our safest drivers can earn a safe driving discount at renewal - in addition to any No Claims Discount earned.
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.
