Over half a century of classic design and an icon of the British road
Volkswagen has been a favourite amongst British drivers ever since the brand first set wheels on our roads in 1952. The first two Volkswagens to be sold in the UK was a pair of the classic Volkswagen Beetle. In 1953, Volkswagen Motors Ltd became the official importer for the UK, and the brand has grown in strength and reputation ever since.
In 1978, Volkswagen’s UK department moved its operations to Blakelands in Milton Keynes. To this day, the company continues to control its sourcing, marketing, and distribution of all vehicles and parts in the UK from its Milton Keynes base. It is now one of the largest importers of vehicles in the country, employing 600 people nationwide and 180 in Milton Keynes alone.
Throughout its long history, the Volkswagen brand has developed a series of standout designs that have stood the test of time. New Volkswagen cars are amongst the most popular in the world, and even the carmaker’s classic designs remain in high demand. Amongst the many cherished cars to be produced over the years are the Beetle, Scirocco, Lupo, Golf, Polo, Passat, Arteon, and Up. All have remained highly sought-after no matter their age. Several of Volkswagen’s classic designs have remained in production or returned to production to this day. The Volkswagen Golf has been continually produced since 1974, with a number of variants including an estate model now added to the original hatch. The Volkswagen Beetle - a standout design in its own right, has been in production under various names and reincarnations since 1938, with the latest version launched in 2011.
Today, Volkswagen continues to innovate through research and design, pushing the boundaries of how their cars look and handle. The manufacturer is dedicated to producing its cars efficiently, ensuring maximum recyclability and making environmental protection a key part of its production process. The My Volkswagen app has also been developed to let owners keep on top of all of their driving data, with service reminders and delivery details all stored right in the app.
Let the headaches of driving become a thing of the past with a hassle-free Volkswagen lease deal
The experience of driving your new car should be a positive one. You would like to find it comfortable, fun, and exciting. However, driving can be tainted by the hassles and headaches of car ownership. Many people continue to choose to select their new car in the old-fashioned way, picking a brand new vehicle and either buying it on the spot or over time with a finance plan. What we do is to offer something different. The old methods might have worked in the past, but today we believe there are better options around. Whilst owning a car does have its advantages, our leasing plans allow you to avoid all of the disadvantages that ownership can involve. The problems with purchasing begin with the major upfront costs and expensive loans required simply to buy the car. After that, ownership also means that any issues are left to you to sort out. That can result in a series of expensive services and fixes over time. Last of all, and perhaps the most worryingly, is the huge loss of capital that buying involves. Cars will inevitably lose a lot of their value very quickly, and when they eventually come to be sold on they are worth much less than what was originally paid for them. This in turn often leads sellers to accept a less-than-perfect offer if only to finally get the car off their hands.
When you choose to lease a Volkswagen with Vantage Leasing, you can forget about all of those stresses and leave the work to us. Leasing can also open you up to options that you may not even have been able to consider if you were to buy. Leasing means being able to drive away in a brand new car without handing over major sums of cash, and you can keep your hard-earned savings set aside for when they’re most needed. During the agreed lease period, you will continue to pay an individually agreed monthly rate designed to suit your budget. The benefits to leasing are not only financial. Following our method, you will be exposed to completely new possibilities. Whilst the cost of buying a new car can leave you priced out of more premium market levels, leasing makes many cars much more easily available. Our clients are able to choose from amongst the best new cars on the market, and we will match your perfect car with the ideal Volkswagen personal leasing contract.
What our clients love most about the Vantage method, however, is the stress-free and enjoyable driving experience that it delivers. When you let go of the financial restraints of buying new and the stresses of selling on second-hand, you will be able to forget worries of depreciation and let any unlikely problems be taken care of under your car’s fresh new warranty. Additionally, once the contract is over and you want to move on to a newer model, you will be able to simply hand the car back to us and move on to your next adventure.
