The Volkswagen Fox is an affordable used purchase most suitable for learners who want to avoid parking an expensive car in the nearest ditch. The pint-sized Fox was introduced in 2006 and is the smallest offering in Volkswagen's line-up. It is clearly a budget vehicle but still benefits from the robust construction associated with the marque.

The Fox range is deliberately simplistic to avoid distracting learners from their forthcoming theory test. Volkswagen therefore produce only two engines - the gutless 1.2-litre and the versatile 1.4-litre. The smaller engine produces 54bhp and crawls to 60mph in 16.9 seconds, whereas the larger 73bhp unit is considerably faster and more flexible.

Volkswagen's 'less is more' approach continues with the specification. The Fox is therefore only available with two trims - standard and Urban. The learner's parents will be pleased that the standard vehicle has air bags and anti-lock brakes. The range topping Urban adds electric front windows and remote central locking.

Purchasing a used Volkswagen Fox is a decision made with your head - not your heart. This compact city car is rather dreary but its quality, safety features, and affordability compensate for the lack of charisma. A 2006 example costs in the region of £5,250.
