The features our customers like 

The Volkswagen Fox is an excellent vehicle for drivers who want a great car that provides excellent fuel economy, great handling and easy maintenance. It has a relatively low price tag, making it a great pick for budget-minded buyers. Our customers are typically considered younger drivers, so when thinking about cars that are suited to them, they’re looking for cars that meet this criteria. Besides its great price and fuel economy, the Fox also has great safety features, now this doesn’t typically cross the mind of a younger driver, but when considering price, having good safety is a great way to lower the insurance cost.

The part our customers really like.. The performance

Despite being small, the Fox can accelerate from 0-60 mph in about 10 seconds. With a top speed of about 103 mph, it’s not an especially fast vehicle, but it can still eat up those city streets. The Fox’s fuel economy is about 29 mpg in the city, 38 mpg on the highway and 30 mpg in maximum driving conditions.

Now considering the Fox doesn’t sound like the most aggressive car on the market, but that’s not what we’re looking for. The main focus as to why it’s liked among our customers is because it’s smooth and reliable. 

The part our customer’s parents really like.. The safety 

For safety, the Volkswagen Fox features an advanced dual-stage crash structure, side airbags and front and rear anti-roll bars that help absorb crash forces. It also has electronic stability control to help prevent skids.

The Fox also has a 5-star overall crash-test score, making it a safe pick for drivers. So, for the parent’s, having a car they can trust their kids to be driving about is key, and as previously mentioned, it’s one of the reasons why our customers buy this car.

Keeping up with the maintenance of the Volkswagen Fox

As mentioned our customers are usually younger drivers, and this would typically mean less driving and car experience. With a lack of experience it’s important for the driver to keep up with the maintenance of the car.

For the Volkswagen Fox, it’s best to take good care of your vehicle so that it lasts long and costs you less in repairs. Regularly change your oil, and make sure your tires are properly inflated and in good condition.

If you do experience a problem, don’t leave it unattended or try to work it out yourself — you could damage your car and void your warranty. As the Fox is a relatively new car, maintenance on the Fox is relatively easy, hence why our customers drive the car!
