When it comes to buying used Volkswagens, everybody knows the price of second-hand VW Polos, Golfs and Passats. There aren't many surprises or bargains to be had, though this doesn't mean that there aren't recommendations to be made.
The Mk V used VW Golf GTI is a great buy. Drive one back to back with a MK VI and you may even conclude that it's a better car than its successor. Take a look at the boot mechanisms. The Mk 5 has an all-metal, microswitched and damped unit. The Mk 6 makes do with a plastic item with no damping. It's a less expensive car to build than the lauded Mk V. You know what to do.
It's at the fringes of Volkswagen's range that the real bargains are to be found. The used Volkswagen Phaeton has always been undervalued and this model, which is built incredibly well, is worth a look. With beautiful 3.0-litre TDI diesel models available from around £8,000, it seems a no-brainer if you're looking for refined and luxurious transport.
The Tiguan is another used VW that looks good value for money. And it’s perfect for those looking for a larger SUV style vehicle. With 5 doors and 5 seats, it’s incredibly spacious on the inside and comes with a chunky, well-built exterior.
The VW up! is a small hatchback that’s been named as 2017 Auto Express “City Car of the Year”. Its nimble design and low Co2 emissions are perfect for city driving. What’s more, it’s surprisingly fun to be behind the wheel of one of these used Volkswagens. At the same awards, the Golf picked up an award for being the “Compact Family Car of the Year”.
If you’re searching for more of a people carrier, look for a used VW Touran. It was named as “Best MPV” in the 2017 What Car? Car of the Year Awards.
