WeBuyCarsforMore – tribute to German cars
After our recent celebration of British-made cars, at WeBuyCarsForMore we thought it only fair to post a response that looks at some of the incredible German cars we have in stock, too.
Let’s face it, the big four German manufacturers – BMW, Mercedes, VW and Audi – have ruled the roads for the past couple of decades, and that’s without taking sportscar manufacturer Porsche into account.
There’s no doubt that the German marques have got pretty much everything going for them – amazing range of cars, filling pretty much every niche available, as well as inventing some new ones. They do everything from outrageously powerful saloons, two-seaters, hatchbacks, electric vehicles, motorway cruisers, 4x4s, load-lugging estates, convertibles, and everything in between.
For build quality, prestige, efficiency and performance, you’d be hard pushed to beat the Germans.
Here’s a quick look at just some of the German branded cars we have in stock at the moment. The range is so diverse, and we are so well-stocked, that we could, in most cases, offer you something from each manufacturer in every style of car – a BMW X5, and Audi Q5 or Q7, a Mercedes-Benz M-class from the SUV category, for example.
So, instead, we’ve just picked some of our favourites:
This Audi Q7 is a beast. Its 4.2 litre diesel engine has about as much torque available as pretty much anything else on the road. Amazing condition, tonnes of extras, low mileage for its year. Let’s be honest: the Q7 is not a subtle vehicle, but for utter dominance of the road, there are few better.
The BMW 5 series is near-universally recognised as the finest example of a large saloon car on the market. This BMW 520d doesn’t offer the blistering performance of some of the bigger-engined 5 series models, but the two litre diesel is an incredibly capable engine and offers most of the real-world power you’d need.
Mercedes-Benz E220 CDI
As a direct alternative to the 5 Series Beemer, this E220 is a brilliant motorway muncher. Mercedes has really got its act together in the past six years or so. The firm was putting out fairly shoddy, unreliable and rust-prone vehicles around the Millennium, but its brand reputation survived, and its cars have come on in leaps and bounds. They are as gadget-filled as ever – Mercedes always have the best technology – and this sleek saloon offers all the refinement you’d expect from an E-class, along with the more aggressive styling that the market seems to demand now.
VW Golf TDI
A list of German cars wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Volkswagen, and it wouldn’t be right to mention Volkswagen without talking about the Golf. The leader of the hatchback class pretty much solidly since its release in 1974, the five-door two-litre diesel is such a brilliant all-rounder, it’s easy to see why it’s so popular. Hits the sweet-spot of performance and economy, and will go for years and years. Hard to find a better family hatchback.
Rounding off the list of Germany’s big five is this fantastic Porsche Boxster S. Hands down, the best two-seater roadster money can buy, and available here for less than £8,000. This is a fantastic piece of German engineering and a fantastic entry point to Porsche ownership. You can safely ignore any ‘hairdresser’ comments, too – the 3.2 flat six engine is sweet as a nut, will shift the car from 0-60 in less than six seconds and sounds fantastic.
