Volkswagen is a car company founded in Wolfsburg, Germany. Originally established by the Nazi regime, the company has shaken off its dark origins to become one of the planet’s leading manufacturers. Annually, it produces the second largest number of cars each year, only behind Toyota.
In English, Volkswagen translates to “People’s Automobile”, an approach they have stuck to throughout their 78 year history. This is best signified in the Volkswagen Golf, one of the most popular cars in the UK since its launch in 1974. A popular hatchback, it is a sportier alternative to the Fiesta and Corsa. The VW Polo is the Golf’s smaller cousin and is another fantastic alternative hatchback that is economical to run. Quite possibly the most famous VW, perhaps even the most famous car, is the Beetle. First produced in 1938, it’s distinctive shape, quirky appeal, and bold advertising campaign has made it an iconic vehicle, beloved to this day.
