Newly launched models like the Astra and Mariva contributed a great deal to this success, but it was the Corsa that prove the Scottish favorite car in 2010, selling a total of 10,660 units last year. This marks the fourth consecutive year that the Corsa was crowned sales king in Scotland. The Astra was the second best-selling model, posting sales of 8,384 units.
“2010 has been yet another landmark year for us in Scotland. We really appreciate the high level of customer loyalty north of the border, backed up by a first-class dealer network. Vauxhall is going from strength to strength at the moment and we’re looking forward to revealing a raft of new, exciting models during 2011, including the new-look Corsa, coming next month,” said Duncan Aldred, Vauxhall’s Managing Director.
Buyers have taken advantage of Vauxhall’s unique Lifetime Warranty since August, the scheme that has now changed to extend the warranty for second owners of Vauxhalls across Network Q retailers. For first owners, the warranty can last the lifetime of the car, but only until it reaches 100,000 miles (161,000 km). Last month, Vauxhall announced that Lifetime Warranty would also be offered to second owners who buy a Vauxhall car that is less than 12 months old and had covered under 30,000 miles (48,200 km).
2011 will bring a host of new models, including the facelifted Corsa, V8-powered VXR8, a new Zafira and the 3-door Astra.
