When you plan to buy a car for the first time, it makes more practical sense to first buy a used car, especially when you are a newbie at driving. In such a case, you can practice driving without having to worry too much about scratching or denting a car.
Used or not, the experience of driving a Volkswagen is out of this world. However, it is always clever to buy from a dealership, have a close look at the car before you finalize a deal. Check for the paint, scratches; go for a test drive.
If you are planning to buy a used Volkswagen, here are the models you should check out.
- Volkswagen Jetta: With its upscale design and refined cabin, VW Jetta has been and still is one of the favorites among car lovers. Called Jetta because of its luxurious experience along with the power of a modern jetliner, it is fairly refined and roomy, yet a comfortable compact sedan. However, lately, it has been taken over by VW Golf which is more versatile than Jetta and offers a smoother driving experience.
- Volkswagen Polo: Known to be a driver’s car, VW Polo is a hatchback offering a good ride and stable experience while driving at high speeds. With tough interiors, VW Polo doesn’t disappoint in the comfort, even in a used condition. Also notable about VW Polo is its spaciousness, although not as spacious as the i20. Because this car is like putty when driven well, there are chances of it being driven a little rashly than other used cars. Therefore, before buying a used car, it is very important to look for the wear and tear in the braking systems, tires and any suspicious noises in the system.
- Volkswagen Golf: One of the most popular compact cars in US, the VW Golf is a wonderful combination of practicality and elegance with a roomy and comfortable cabin. The TDI model is known to provide better performance and efficient fuel economy. It is a fun-to-drive vehicle with classy and high quality furnishings.
- Volkswagen Passat: A midsize sedan with a little more luxury than the others in the market, the Passat is classy and elegant in styling and handling. While the earlier versions are sufficient only for families of four, the later version is roomier and will easily accommodate a fifth passenger. The Passat is an excellent choice for car lovers looking at fuel efficiency, especially in the TDI models.
- Volkswagen Beetle: The VW Beetle debuted in 2012, when it came with only manual transmission and didn’t have any special features such as the Bluetooth connectivity. With passing time, the later models have been giving better fuel economy. In any case, the Beetle has an impressive cabin with color matched dash panels and clean lines. However, it still presents a challenge if you are a tall person, because of its low roof line. The backseat is spacious, but not as much as that of Golf. However, the Beetle’s not much on steering and handling.
