Volkswagen cars on DesperateSeller.co.uk

You've got your premium brands and your mainstream brands and then you've got Volkswagen. The German marque takes great pride in the classless image, low key styling and the underlying quality of its products. The result for used car buyers are prices that sit slightly above those of mainstream alternatives but residual values that significantly exceed them.

A historic view on Volkswagen

At the base of the VW range, the Lupo was replaced by the Fox city car in 2006 but neither has been a massive seller. The Polo supermini is far more commonplace as a second hand car and it's the Mk4 versions that represent particularly good value at the moment. Next comes the all-conquering Golf, available in three-door, five-door, estate and versatile Golf Plus guises. MK4, MK5 and MK6 cars are all well worthy of consideration, each generation having its sporty GTI versions or punchy diesel engines. There's also the Jetta saloon based on the MK5 car, the sleek Scirocco coupe and the Beetle which has its roots with the MK4. Passat used cars are always plentiful thanks to their popularity with fleet operators. The diesel -engined versions make good family transport and the curvy Passat CC launched in 2008 provides the antidote to the standard car's somewhat bland styling. Other pre-owned highlights increasing the range of used second hand Volkswagens include the Touran MPV, the Tiguan compact 4x4 and the Eos, an elegant hard-topped convertible. Volkswagen has even ventured into the top end of the car market with its Phaeton luxury saloon, a car that depreciates violently, and the Touareg luxury 4x4. Both share their architecture with Audi models and are very capable as a result but heavy running costs mean there are cheaper ways to buy a used Volkswagen.

Useful tips to sell your motor

As a golden rule, you will get a lot more money by selling your car privately on a website such as DesperateSeller.co.uk than you will by selling it to a dealer. However, what you need to take into consideration is the process itself as it can take up quite a bit of your time. You’ll need to advertise your car, speak with buyers, go out on test drives, negotiate a price and then do all the necessary paperwork. However, if you follow a few simple steps then you can make the process a whole lot smoother. Visit our “Sell My Car” section for more advice on how to sell your car smoothly.
