What used Volkswagen Golf GTE hatchback will I get for my budget?
Prices for the GTE start off at around £11,000, this buying you a 2015 car with a higher than average mileage. Buy the same age car with an average mileage for the year and a full service history, bought from a trader or an independent dealer, and you can expect to pay around £12,000 to £14,000. Expect to pay between £15,000 and £17,000 to secure a 2016 or 2017 car that satisfies the same criteria, and £18,000 to £20,000 for a 2018 one bought from a franchised dealer, a fraction more for a 2019 one.
How much does it cost to run a Volkswagen Golf GTE hatchback?
Car tax is based on CO2 emissions on cars registered before April 2017, so GTEs of this period score well there with no tax payable. Alas, those registered after that date will pay the standard rate applicable for hybrids, currently £140 a year.
Insurance groups are relatively low and stand at 25 for the standard car and 26 for the higher-spec Advance model.
Volkswagen doesn’t offer fixed price servicing for the GTE and it doesn’t publish any fixed price costs either, so it’ll be worth contacting a few Volkswagen dealers to find out which one works out to be the least expensive.
