Volkswagen Up

Don’t let this cute compact car fool you, there’s a lot more to it than initially meets the eye. Yes, it’s tiny, but it’s incredibly stylish and far more sophisticated than you might first imagine. It’s a great little drive, comfortable and fun.

If you’re looking for a supermini that is compact, smart, and a nifty drive then this could be the one for you. Best of all you can secure a new Volkswagen Up with a £500 deposit and we’ll pay towards your first year’s insurance. You can use this to buy insurance from a provider of your choice (of course, we’d love it if you chose our black box insurance, but we don’t tie you in!)

Reasons to love the Volkswagen Up

A sprightly, agile drive

This is a fun car to drive with light steering. Its small size and nimble driving lends itself perfectly for driving through the busy, narrow streets in town. The tight turning circle makes it particularly good for manoeuvring. It’s primarily a city car but is equally as happy and refined out on open road.

Distinctive

The up! has a unique look that is full of character and the newer models have had a facelift to give it an even sharper look. As you’d expect with a VW, this is a quality built car with a classy feel that you’d also experience in a VW Golf or Polo. There’s stacks of colours and a range of alloy wheels available so you have the option to personalise too.

Equally the interior has a premium feel that is polished and clean.

In safe hands

Unsurprisingly, the up! scored a maximum five stars with Euro NCAP rating and an 89% score for adult occupant safety so you know you’re in safe hands in this neat little car. All models come with driver and passenger airbags and anti-lock brakes. There’s a few smart optional safety systems available too, should you feel the need, including the City Emergency Braking system. This cleverly uses a laser to scan the road and automatically apply the brakes if it detects a potential collision.

Small size, small costs

This size of the car and engine means running costs are low, saving you money and helping you do your bit for the environment. Mid-level models have a respectable 62.mpg fuel economy. The BlueMotion models feature technologies to make them even more efficient including stop/start technology, an energy recuperation system and aerodynamic modifications.

Insurance wise the up! is about as cheap to insure as it gets. Most models are in the very lowest groups 1 and group 2.

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.
