Used Volkswagen Cars for Sale in the Philippines
Founded in 1937 and headquartered in Wolfsburg in Germany, Volkswagen is a German automotive company known for manufacturing small to mid-sized cars and SUVs that are durable, easy to maintain, and fuel-efficient. This automobile company was created by the German government to provide a mass-produced, affordable vehicle. It was then known as “Gesellschaft zur Vorbereitung des Deutschen Volkswagens mbH” and it was later renamed to Volkswagen; its name means “the people’s car” in English. Today, Volkswagen has come a long way since establishing a company that produced one of the oldest and most popular nameplates in history, the Beetle. It is now recognized as a leading car manufacturer offering an intriguing lineup of vehicles. Popular models of Volkswagen include the Jetta, Santana, Golf, Atlas, Passat, and Tiguan. Volkswagen has also acquired many subsidiaries and sells vehicles under luxury brands like Bentley, Lamborghini, and Porsche.
The listings for used Volkswagen vehicles available on Carousell range from 1972 to 2019 of varying models, fuel types (e.g. diesel, gasoline), trims, and body styles. Some of the models available include the Jetta, a compact car with ample cargo space, perfect for families. This model has been discontinued and is only available in pre-owned condition. The Santana model is also available; this model is slightly bigger than the Jetta and its design is a mix of a small wagon and a hatchback. Some other Volkswagen models listed on the website are Tiguan, Golf, Touareg, Caravelle, Touran, Polo, Beetle, Kombi, Lamando, and Caddy.
In terms of mileage, it’s difficult to accurately predict how each model will perform over the years. With a reasonable amount of maintenance, a Volkswagen can last 160,000 kilometers and beyond.
Frequently Asked Questions(FAQs)
Why buy a used car?
Vehicles depreciate fast. This means that your hard-earned money can take you further in the secondhand vehicle market than in the brand new vehicle market. If you shop for a brand new car, your budget may only afford you an entry-level car or a base trim, but if you shop for a used car, that same budget can buy you a vehicle that’s better equipped and significantly fancier.
Is Volkswagen a reliable car brand?
Yes. This German car brand will serve you a long time due to the quality build, as evidenced by old Beetles still being sold and roaming the streets of the Philippines. Volkswagen has received high ratings for reliability from independent names like Consumer Reports and it’s hard to find similar ratings for vehicles competing within the same segment.
What is the average price of a Volkswagen in the Philippines?
Brand new Volkswagens can range from Php 680,000 to as high as Php 3.6 million depending on the model. On Carousell, however, you can find a used Volkswagen for a fraction of the price. You can purchase a Volkswagen for as low as Php 100,000 to Php 2.2 million depending on the condition, mileage, age, year model, variant, and added upgrades.
