You can spend even less on a Fox, but we wouldn't advise it the entry-level model doesn't get even central locking, and you'll have to wind down the windows by hand. This 1.2-litre isn't quick, but it's decent to drive and the cabin is roomy.
The VW badge makes the Fox more desirable than other scrappage buys and means it'll be worth more than most when you sell. However, optional air-con, at 955, will up the price by nearly 20%.
CD Player (four speakers), driver and passenger airbags, electric front windows, remote central locking, split folding rear seats, height- and reach-adjustable steering wheel.
