With manufacturers fighting the credit crunch, there are some spectacular deals for the new ‘58’ plate registration, which comes in on the 1st September. Here are our top picks:
Vauxhall’s generous four-year zero percent finance is being offered on most of the model range – including the Astra VXR. If you can stump up a £6000 deposit, that means an effective saving of over £2000 on this fire-breathing hot hatch.
You can save a massive £4360 on the top-spec 168bhp diesel Passat saloon. Inchcape Altrincham is offering the deal, and the car has leather, parking sensors and Bluetooth.
Buying through a broker could save you over £3,000 on this UK-supplied Citroen C4 Grand Picasso. That’s a bargain for seven-seat practicality and generous spec.
The Bravo might not be a dynamic match for the Focus, but it’s handsome, well-equipped and – with the diesel engine – powerful and frugal. Perrys of Aylesbury has slashed nearly £3,500 off this top-spec version – and it comes with a five-year warranty.
There are great bargains to be had across the Ford range, but this is the best. You can get nearly a third off the excellent 1.6-litre Focus Style – normally £14,495 – and it comes with the all-important aircon.
