For approximately 80 years now, Volkswagen has been manufacturing vehicles for young people, for senior citizens, for bachelors, for bachelorettes, for yuppies, for the blue collar guys, for families, and everything else in between. Basically, the brand manufactures vehicles for all kinds of people. That isn't surprising since the German automaker's brand name translates to "people's car" in English, after all.
While it's one of the most prominent automakers today, Volkswagen didn't exactly start out big. In fact, the company struggled during its earlier years as it had to go up against established German automakers that focused on building luxury automobiles. The brand saw an opportunity here though since the average German couldn't afford any of the models offered by luxury brands. The "people's car" brand did exactly what its namesake stands formake and sell quality cars that are accessible to the people. Opportunity did indeed knock, but that doesn't mean that it was all butterflies and rainbows for the brand since then. The company naturally encountered a lot of difficulties, especially during the post-war era (being a German brand certainly didn't help matters then). But with hard work, perseverance, and a couple of excellent models, it was able to establish itself as one of the giants in the automotive industry.
Volkswagen has produced numerous models throughout the years. As said above, the "people's car" brand manufactured automobiles for practically everybody. For the young ones, the Beetle, one of the most iconic vehicles of all time, is always an appealing choice. Guys looking for something vintage or something versatile can go for the old Type 2 model (older variants are popularly known as the "hippie" van). The Phaeton is perfect for those who are looking for a vehicle that's rather formal. Families can go for the practical Golf model (which is composed of the usual small family car parts). Regardless of the "Volks" you drive, you can rest assured that it'd serve you well.
