    "I really can't rate this service high enough. Dan Johnson picked my car up at around 8.30am - he was pleasant and polite. Off it went to the garage, I got a text 20 minutes later to say it had arrived and around an hour later another text to say it was on it's way back - with a nice shiny ""Pass"...

Bristol

Bristol is both a city and a county in South West England, with an estimated population of 460,000.

Bristol’s modern economy is built on creative media, electronics and aerospace industries. The city-centre docks have been redeveloped as centres of heritage and culture.

It is also one of Britain’s most popular tourist destinations, due to its wealth of arts and culture, and the opening of the £500million shopping centre, Cabot Circus, in 2008. Bristol’s thriving art scene hosts the Bristol Old Vic—an offshoot of The Old Vic in London—that occupies the Theatre Royal on King Street.

It is also a popular belief that the unidentified graffiti artist Banksy is from Bristol, with many of his artworks appearing around the city.

The most popular cars in Bristol

Given their all-rounder versatility and crossover social status, it’s no great surprise to hear that the VW Golf is estimated to be the most popular car in Bristol, according to data provided between 2012 to 2018 by ownership and postcode.

Close on its heels—and in order of popularity—are the Mercedes A-Class, Nissan Qashqai, Ford Fiesta and the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Vehicle numbers in Bristol

There are approximately 322,000 licensed vehicles in the Bristol area, with some of the most popular models including the Ford Focus, Vauxhall Corsa and the Mini.

Volkswagen

Volkswagen (often shortened to VW) is a German automobile manufacturer founded in 1937 by the German Labour Front, a Nazi labour union.

Volkswagen is the flagship marque of the Volkswagen Group, who in turn is majority owned by Porsche. They own and operate a vast number of cars under other brand names—at the time of writing, they have 342 subsidiary companies.

How popular is Volkswagen in the United Kingdom?

Possibly its most well-known model of the current generation, the VW Golf, was the 2nd best selling car of 2018, behind the Ford Fiesta, which consistently takes the top spot year after year.

The Golf’s 64k registrations in 2018 added to the vast tally of 3.4million Volkswagen cars on the road today.

High quality, highly rated, appropriately priced cars

VW cars achieve consistently strong reviews and are highly respected by critics and drivers alike. They are renowned for investing more money into research and development than almost any other marque and distributing their wealth of motoring knowledge across the many partner brands under the VW Group umbrella.

The Volkswagen Beetle: The ‘people’s car’

A classic of its time, originally named the Volkswagen Type 1, it soon became nicknamed the Beetle due to its unique shape, and subsequently the bug. The unique looking car was designed by Ferdinand Porsche for Adolf Hitler, who wanted a cheap and simple mass-produced car to travel around his country’s new road network.

The new model Beetle, originally launched to celebrate the original classic in 1997, and with an updated successor in 2011, was designed around the VW Jetta platform sharing much of its build with the Jetta and Golf. VW announced in 2018 that the Beetle would finally be removed from production in July 2019.

VW’s reliability and reputation

Volkswagen ranked 17th place out of 30 car brands in the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018. Sister companies Skoda and Seat appeared higher up the ranks at 7th and 10th respectively, while executive brand Audi a few places further down the list at joint 20th.
