UK:  20 per cent off almost all Vauxhall’s models image

In a try to increase sales, Vauxhall on Friday said it would offer customers 20 per cent off on almost all models.

Practically, according to the automaker and current price lists, customers can expect savings of nearly £5,000 on the Brit-built Astra Sports Tourer or drive away a new Corsa 5-door SRi 1.7 CDTi 16v and save £3,465.

The offer will be limited to only two days – June 17 and July 18 this year. So, if you choose an Insignia VXR Nav 2.8i V6 24v Turbo 4×4 Auto practically you can save £7,165 or even more. For customers on a tighter budget a top of the range Agila SE 1.2 16v ecoFLEX now costs £9,851, a saving of £2,274.

Practically the automaker is trying to do everything it can to increase sales and production. According to some German reports, General Motors, the owner of European division Opel Ag and Vauxhall is once again planning to sell these brands.

However, German publications Auto Bild and Spiegel Online claim the business is back on the block again after GM chief executive Dan Akerson had become “impatient” with continuing losses. GM Europe lost about £1bn last year.

Orders taken before June 17 will be eligible provided the vehicle is registered between June 17 and July 18, 2011.
