Top 5 Cheapest New Cars to Buy in UK

Welcome to our last post in March, this warm Monday we are going to talk about the best cheapest new cars that you can buy in United Kingdom. In this article we are only going to review the best 5, as I think it doesn’t make sense to come up with a long list, as then most of the cars will become not that cheap.

vw up1. Volkswagen Up
Price starts from: £8,265
This little VW car is quite small, but the most important thing is that you will still get that luxury feeling as driving any other Volkswagen.  Volkswagen cars tend to be quite popular among UK drivers.  So you can always feel safe and secured with Volkswagen.


Peugeot 1072.Peugeot 107
Price range from: £8,220
As official peugeot website in UK states: Time to take the city by storm in this funky little 3-door. Heads will be turning wherever you go in the 107. This line actually perfectly describes what Peugeot 107 us all about, a really nice stylish look and very fuel efficient.


Vauxhall Corsa3. Vauxhall Corsa
Price range from: £8,995
Since launch back in 2006, Vauhxall corsa has always been on the top of British charts as the most selling car in UK. . Beloved of driving schools and new drivers in particular, it’s available with three doors or five. Vauxhall cars are quite cheap in general and very driver friendly.


Toyota Aygo4.  Toyota Aygo
Price range from: £7,995
Toyota Aygo is the cheapest one on our list, and furthermore, Aygo model has also been quite successful as a “used” car. Overall Toyota hasn’t been particularly popular in British market. However if you are looking for the cheapest model with Asian quality Toyota is the best one to get.


Hyundai i105. Hyundai i10
Price range from £8,345
This is the second cheapest Asian car that you can get in UK. Hyunday models tend to be as popular as Toyota, and also the latest version of  i10 is far more complete than previous. Bigger and better equipped than its predecessor, it also promises to be more enjoyable to drive.

It is interesting enough to mention that all of those cars look quite similar. 🙂

Meet The New VW Polo Facelift 2014 for £11kLast week have already posted a great review on Volkswagen dog guards, and today we are going to talk about the bran new Volkswagen Polo Facelift 2014 edition with a starting price at £11,000.

The new polo edition is a great answer to Ford fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa models. VW is planing to boost its sales in US and Europe by implementing quite a major cosmetic change to the front side of the existing VW Poloto model.  However the cosmetic changes don’t just affect the front side of the car, as manufacturers have also added alloy wheel designs and remoulded bumpers set the Polo apart. Among the external styling changes made to the facelifted Polo is a new front bumper with added structure and larger air ducts together with a reworked grille whose horizontal emphasis aims to provide the strong selling hatchback with greater visual width.

Which have been dramatically modified or replaced with a more high performance units which are there to help boot the performance and economy for fuel expenses.

It is claimed to return 68.9mpg and 94g/km on the combined EU test cycle, improving significantly on the 57.7mpg and 113g/km of its predecessor. It is the first petrol-powered Volkswagen to wear the Blue Motion badge. The Blue Motion TSI will be available towards the end of this year.

Volkswagen Dog Guards Review

Welcome to my special post abut dog guards. This week are are going to talk about different dog guards for Volkswagen cars. My review is based purely on my opinion and I’m opinion and some reviews that I found on the internet. I’m not trying to push any brand on particular Volkswagen cargo barrier further. But I guess that’s for you to decide. The pet barriers discussed in this review and comparison will for the following models: Beetle, Bora, Caddy, Crafter, Eos, Fox, Golf, Golf Plus, Jetta, Lupo, Passa,t Phaeton, Polo, Scirocco, , well here goes:

saunders dog guard for VWSaunders
Saunders have a very interesting range of Volkswagen dog guards. They are quite affordable on price, sell both through ebay and their website. Saunders have 2 types of pet barriers Tubular and mixed Wiremesh/Tubular. Please keep in mind that the last time I checked Saunders didn’t have a dog guard for all models of VW.


travall vw dog guardTravall
Travall have the widest range of dog guards for VW. Even Volkswagen themselves don’t provide such a variety. Travall dog guards are slightly more expensive than Saunders, but that’s because they are pure Wiremesh type. Which means that you won’t be dissapointed in terms of quality. Travall dog guards are sold though amazon, ebay, home website, and variety of partners.

vw oem dog guardOEM Partition grilles
It’s quite wierd that VW call dog guards as Partition Grilles, furthemore the website itself says PaRTion grilles. So I’m not sure if that was a type or they did it on purpose. The OEM dog guards are quite expensive as the price vary from £150 to £300. But if you like the original parts and accessories then you can’t go wrong.


barjo vw dog guardBarjo
Barjo have quite a narrow range of Volkswagen pet guards but they definitely stand for quality. Just like Travall they provide a high security and safety for your pets with a Wiremesh type of dog barrier. You can find plenty of those sold on gumtree, ebay and amazon. The price range may vary between £80 and £200 depending on a particular Volkswagen model.


Please come back soon for more information on model specific dog guards, as within the next week I will be posting information about dog guards for Ford, Audi and Bmw, so please stay tuned. And as always your comments and feedback are much appreciated.  If you want to find out a little bit more about dog guards you visit our dog guards review page for additional info.

It’s interesting that the total amount of sales for the first 2 months of 2014 were 6.1 percent higher than the same period one year ago. The CEO of SMMT has stated that the sales highlight the attractiveness of the new car market as well as increasing consumer confidence. He also stated that “while February is typically a quieter month ahead of the March registration plate change, we expect the arrival of the new 14-plate and increasing economic confidence to maintain a steady rate of growth.”

Top Selling Cars in UK for February 2014:

  1. Ford Fiesta (4,415 sales)
  2. Vauxhall Corsa (3,138)
  3. Vauxhall Astra (2,707)
  4. Ford Focus (2,506)
  5. VW Golf (1,628)
  6. VW Polo (1,450)

Please come back soon for more exciting and interesting information about different car manufacturers and related auto materials.

New Volkswagen TV Commercial

If you still haven’t seen the New Volkswagen TV Commercial here is the video for you. The video itself is somehow related to Super Bowl XLVIII in US.  But to be fair I didn’t find any relation whatsoever except the 2.2.14 numbers at the end, which are supposed to represent to date of the match between Denver Broncos and Seattle. Basically, Volkswagen have decided to make a perfect commercial by putting everything that tends to be popular on the internet and put it all in one video. So you have all your favourite stuff there – babies, puppies, muscle flexing, hot girls, people getting heart and all that sort of stuff. It’s not bad as you can possibly imagine and still is fun to watch.

So what do you think about this New Volkswagen TV Commercial, did you like it or not? To be fair I’m having mixed feelings about that. Hope someone will launch a great commercial for UK market soon…
