Being well-engineered, high quality motor vehicles, Volkswagens are known to hold their price extremely well versus other car brands and are very attractive cars in the used car market.
Volkswagen is one of the most popular car makes to sell via Motorway and we are highly experienced in purchasing VWs from 1-5 years old, right up to older models aged 5+ years with more than one owner. From a nearly new Volkswagen Tiguan, to an ageing VW Passat, to a well-loved Volkswagen Sharan, or a vintage VW Beetle – we are used to buying Volkswagens of all ages and conditions.
We will always aim to give you a valuation and price to sell your car that matches other quotes you may have received such as via Autotrader and eBay online, as well as local or national car dealer franchises and networks as a standalone sale or trade-in for a new car.
Volkswagen is one of the most popular car brands in the UK. As of September 2016, there were 3.2 million taxed and roadworthy VWs on UK roads. In terms of numbers, only Fords and Vauxhall are more common. And with a more diverse range than ever, Volkswagen are looking to emerge from their controversial 2015 global emission scandal with a stella new car line up to beat other similar ranges from the likes of Audi, Ford and Nissan.
From the new, compact and sporty VW up!, to the ever-popular Golf and Polo, to the durable Passat and highly-popular 7-seater Sharan model, new Volkswagens come up in all shapes and sizes. In recent years VW have also made major in-roads into the SUV market with the stylish and powerful Tiguan and Touareg.
In terms of older, classic Volkswagen models, none is perhaps more revered than the iconic VW Beetle or the funky VW Campervan which people lovingly recondition – it’s this irresistible legacy in the car market going back over the decades that makes them such a cherished car brand. The saying “once a Volkswagen owner, always a VW owner” is perhaps true as their brand loyalty is second to none.
Volkswagen has a strong German heritage. The company was founded in January 1937 in Germany by the German Labour Front with its headquarters in Wolfsburg. Translated from German to English, Volkswagen means “the people’s automobile”. In English people tend to de-Germanise the pronunciation of the ‘wagen’ (pronounced ‘Vagen’ in German) and say ‘wagon’.
The Volkswagen and VW brand are actually part of the Volkswagen Group which also owns and comprises other brands including Skoda, Bentley, Bugatti, Audi, Lamborghini, SEAT, Porsche and Škoda. When taken as a group, Volkswagen is the largest car maker in the world.
