Vauxhall had another great year in the Scottish marketplace, especially due to the well equipped and priced Vauxhall Corsa. For the seventh year in a row, the brand snagged the spot of largest manufacturer in the country.
The company names innovative financing programs as the largest driver in growing retail sales in the Scottish market with many models simply offering a great purchase value.Vauxhall has done a superb job in communicating that value proposition because over 10,000 Vauxhall Corsas were sold in the pocket-sized market that is Scotland. The Corsa just missed the top spot for best selling vehicle in the country by 79 vehicles, a spot it had also held until just recently.
“We are delighted to be Scotland’s biggest-selling car manufacturer for the seventh year running,” said Gordon Hannen, Vauxhall’s Regional Operations Manager for Scotland. “We are confident the new 2015 Corsa, in showrooms now, can regain its position at the top of the Scottish car charts.”
Speaking of the all-new 2015 Corsa, the hotter Corsa VXR will also be launching this summer to the tune of a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, making 200-horsepower for such a small package. Accompanying the power boost will be a sportier and stiffer suspension setup, and more powerful brakes. For the more pedestrian folk, the base Corsa starts at just £8,995, or around $13,500 USD.
