My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

Volkswagen temps the buyers with a host of offers to get the cars rolling again after the emissions scandal.
Drive an award-winning new Volkswagen Golf from just £199¹ per month
Volkswagen Polo, with one year’s free insurance², now available from only £139¹ per month
Deposit contributions and other offers apply throughout the Volkswagen range
Volkswagen Retailers across the country are gearing up for a busy summer of sales as the brand unveils a raft of tempting new offers across the range. Volkswagen is synonymous with dependability, quality and value, and these qualities are typified by the latest deals.
The headline-grabbing offers start with the accomplished, classless, Volkswagen Golf. The offers apply to the three- and five-door hatchback versions of the versatile family car. The broad Golf range is peppered with the latest technology and driver assistance, and it of course boasts among its number the world’s favourite hot hatch, the iconic Golf GTI³.
Customers opting for a Golf via Retail Personal Contract Hire can now do so at an ultra-low rate of £199 per month¹. This competitive offer is available over a contract of up to 48 months.
Customers opting for a Solutions Personal Contract Plan benefit from a deposit contribution of up to £2,000 at 5.4 per cent APR representative for private customers who finance a new Golf via Volkswagen Financial Services (VWFS). That means the Golf now blends class-leading design with extraordinary affordability.
The all-conquering Volkswagen Polo, recently named Britain’s best supermini once again by Auto Express magazine, is now available for just £139 per month¹ via Retail Personal Contract Hire over 48 months. For customers who opt for a Solutions Personal Contract Plan, a deposit contribution of up to £1,400 at 6.7 per cent APR representative is available on all new Polos¹.
The extensive Polo range starts from just £11,525 (RRP OTR) and has recently grown with the addition of the stylish new Polo Beats trim, which brings unique styling, enhanced equipment and a class-leading sound system to the hatchback line-up.
Among the Polo Beats’ highlights are an exceptional 300-watt seven speaker sound system develop by Californian audio experts Beats Audio, 16-inch alloy wheels and Beats Audio-themed styling details both inside and out. The Polo Beats starts from £13,910 (RRP OTR).
The Polo is the car that many younger drivers choose and, with that in mind, Volkswagen’s free insurance offer has proven particularly popular².
The good news is that this offer has now been extended, and simplified. One year’s free insurance is included for anyone who buys a Polo as long as they’ve held a driving licence for a year, and subject to conditions around driving history. It’s another example of the value that comes with Volkswagen ownership.
The sporty Scirocco coupé, meanwhile, is now available at Volkswagen Retailers across the UK with a new deposit contribution offer of up to £2,000 at 6.5 per cent APR representative when purchased with Solutions PCP⁴.
The Scirocco GT costs from £22,890 (RRP OTR) before the offer is applied and packs a punch with 18-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, 2Zone air conditioning and front and rear parking sensors.
The Scirocco range has recently been extended to include the powerful new Scirocco GTS, too, and with its 220 PS TSI engine and unique ‘GTS’ styling it is a special car in its own right.
The high-performance Scirocco R, with a 280 PS power plant, tops the offering and includes lowered suspension and Volkswagen’s Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC), the combination of which offer the driver a thrilling experience behind the wheel.
The GTS is priced from £28,500 (RRP OTR) and the R is £32,895 (RRP OTR) and both benefit from this deposit contribution offer.
