Frequently Asked Questions

Is it better to lease or buy a Volkswagen?

Opting for either buying or leasing a Volkswagen depends on your personal requirements and circumstances. Leasing a Volkswagen presents several advantages over buying, such as included road tax and breakdown cover, reduced initial expenses, no worries about depreciation, and the chance to switch to a new Volkswagen every two, three, or four years. On the other hand, if you wish to have ownership of your car, drive extensively each year, or if you have a less favourable credit history, buying a Volkswagen might be the preferable choice for you.

How much does it cost to lease a Volkswagen?

The leasing cost for a Volkswagen depends on the model you select. It's important to note that leasing can often be more economical than buying outright since it requires no large initial payments and avoids the steep depreciation costs associated with new purchases. The Volkswagen lineup includes everything from the sporty VW Golf to the spacious VW Caddy.

Can you lease a Volkswagen with no deposit?

In contrast to a purchase agreement where you make a deposit, a lease agreement requires an initial rental. This initial rental effectively serves as your first payment and is integral to the lease contract, hence it is non-refundable. For those leasing a Volkswagen, the amount you pay for your initial rental can be altered to match your financial preferences. Many Volkswagen lease customers opt for an initial rental that is equivalent to three or six months' worth of monthly rentals to decrease their ongoing monthly expenses. However, you have the option to set your initial rental as low as one month's rental to minimise your upfront costs. Check out our most recent car lease offerings that include options for a low initial rental.
