Volkswagen is the people’s car. In order to get more people driving Volswagen concentrated on building affordable models and this was an astute policy. With its distinctive bubble shape, the Beetle is technically known as the Volkswagen Type 1. This simple looking car was certainly more advanced than anything else in its class. We all know that Volkswagen made great cars but when they were first brought to America only two were sold during the first year. Thanks to some nifty advertising from Doyle Dane Bernbach sales increased dramatically. With that success, the company developed similarly affordable yet well-engineered compact models and the Beetle gave birth to the Volkswagen Polo. This sportier model was the precursor to the ever-popular Volkswagen Golf of which there are so many different versions. I would consider leasing a Volkswagen as I would want the flexibility of trying all the different models and upsizing to the larger SUV.
