As you may be aware, it sees people have less money over the past year or so available to spend especially on new cars. Petrol prices seem to increase on a daily basis so it comes as no surprise consumers are looking to purchase cheaper cars. These cars which are more reasonably priced seem to be smaller cars. Vauxhall has definitely benefited from being a brand that offers great value for money with other car manufacturers like Mercedes that are perceived as offering quality rather than value for money.
Of course it all depends on what you are looking for in a car. Indeed some top of the range Corsa cars can cost close to £ 16,000. But the cheaper models are reliably good value for money which is where the Vauxhall Corsa comes into its own. Having started its life in 1993 with redesigns in 2000, 2003 and 2006, this year it has become one of the best selling cars. The latest models are categorized by no fewer than 14 different versions which does not even include the different sizes of engines. So far the variations include Expression, GLS, Club, Life, Classic, Breeze, Elegance, Active, Energy, Design, SXi, Exclusiv, SRi and finally SXi +.
It can be noted that Vauxhall has over the past few months increased its marketing activity, particularly on the Corsa. This has been surprisingly if you have watched television recently and sat through some of the car adverts and sponsored adverts after your favorite TV programs, you might have noticed Vauxhall is currently offering some good finance deals to encourage people to purchase the new Vauxhall Corsa. This is definitely worth a look. Some of the offers that I have seen in the last few months include 0% finance over three years if you can afford the deposit, free car insurance for one year (age criteria and other terms and conditions may apply) discounts because of the scrapage scheme which looks likely to continue in to 2010 and various other incentives.
This car would be ideal for someone that has recently passed his or her driving test. It is a favorite for first time car buyers because like most small cars these days it is fairly easy to drive. In particular the car is quite light to drive and the clutch is reliably smooth. If you're looking for a bit more excitation in a car then go for the SRi sporty version which handles far better than the basic Vauxhall Corsa. There are several extra options that you can purchase for example an automatic gearbox in 1.4 petrol engine, Easytronic system on certain smaller engine models which has an automatic mode helping the car to swap gears without a clutch pedal.
As shown by the number of versions Vauxhall Corsa has to offer there is no doubting a fundamental choice to consumers. I am slightly daunted though with the vast amount of different versions which certainly confused me so I can certainly imagine new customers baffled by the various different options available.
