Perhaps the most famous car brand made in Britain, Vauxhall has become incredibly popular in recent years and this is undoubtedly due to the success of the Vauxhall Corsa. As the second-best selling car in the UK, the Corsa is topped only by the Ford Fiesta.
Best known for making small affordable cars that are safe and cheap to run. Vauxhall’s love of gadgets and technology is evident in all their models - giving them an edge when you get in the driving seat.
Vauxhall pride themselves on their smart interiors and their love of technology is clear across the range. The dashboards look slick, the seats are comfortable and inviting and there’s lots of little personal touches which work well. Many models across their range come fitted with Vauxhall’s clever Intellilink infotainment system, allowing you to stay connected with your phone for music and calls - it even enables you to safely receive and send text messages.
Now in its fifth generation model, the Vauxhall Corsa goes from strength to strength. The sculpted contours and sleek body make this a great looking car. It’s fun and enjoyable to drive and it’s handy for nipping around town. With many people learning to drive in a Vauxhall Corsa, it’s no wonder that loads of new drivers opt for a Corsa as their first car.
Let’s not forget the Vauxhall Astra which has been a constant best seller since its launch in 1979 and it’s easy to see why. It’s a joy to drive, easy to handle plus it’s smart and very roomy.
It’s going to be interesting to see whether “the baby” of the Vauxhall family will be as popular as these two. The Adam is Vauxhall’s trendy and relatively new city car. It’s already turning heads with its cool good looks and the amazing ability to configure it to make it your own!
What is a guarantor?
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments. Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.
How does the insurance work?
We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Highway Insurance (part of the Liverpool Victoria Group)
How long until I get my new car?
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
What happens after the first year?
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
