The 148 bhp 2.0 litre diesel is nothing short of fantastic.

The Focus Active adds 30mm to the ride height and cladding to the wheel arches, twin exhaust pipes, SYNC 3, Sat nav and privacy glass.

Citroen C5 Aircross – Available now to order, not in showrooms until Feb 2019

The C5 Aircross shares its underpinnings with the DS7, Peugeot 3008/500 and Vauxhall Grandland X, and it is a late to the party, at least for Europe as its been on sale in China for a year. At 4.5 m long and a 580 litre boot it ticks a lot of boxes (but not a 7 seat one) and it promises to offer unrivalled comfort, the seats are thicker than the competition and it offers ‘progressive hydraulic cushions’ which soften out the imperfections in the road.  Perfect for the UK. All cars have a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an eight-inch touchscreen as standard, as well as wireless smartphone charging. Three trim levels are offered, Feel, Flair and Flair Plus. Two petrol powered cars, the 1.2 litre 128bhp PureTech 130 three-cylinder mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, while the 178bhp PureTech 1.6 litre four-cylinder gets an eight-speed automatic gearbox as standard. The base diesel is the 128bhp BlueHDi 130, available with either a manual or automatic gearbox, while the BlueHDi 180 is equipped with the eight-speed automatic. click here for full review and prices.

Mazda MX-5 1.5 132bhp SE+ Petrol £599

Mazda MX-5 1.5 132bhp SE-L Nav Petrol £899



News and Pricing changes

Mitsibushi Outlander PHEV

There has been much talk of the Outlander being removed due to the changes in the Government Grant for Plugin Hybrid Vehicles (UK Government announce an end to the £2500 Grant for Plug in Hybrids (PHEV) that can travel less than 70 miles on electric power alone), we can confirm this is not the case and the Outlander PHEV will be avaialble but the Advance Payment will be increased to the top end around £3750, that is an increase of £1750. Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV 



Mazda CX-5 2019

The 2019 Mazda CX-5 is having a few tweaks, the major one being the addition of Apple Carplay/Android Auto. Prices now start at £799 Advance Payment, an increase of  £150 over the present prices.

Removed from Scheme 10th March 2019. Motability citing insurance issues, no plan for a return to the Scheme in the short term.





Golf GTD

The excellent Golf GTD has been reduced by £750 to £1799 AP (was £2549) for the Automatic 2.0 litre diesel 181bhp estate and by £750 to £1949 for the hatchback automatic. Stock cars only and there appear to be none or very few avaialble.

Removed from Scheme February 27th – GTD no longer being manufactured.




Volkswagen Sharan

The Volkswagen Sharan may be on its way out but it still looks great and there is little to match the versatility of  sliding rear doors in the large MPV sector, complete with with seven individual seats for adults it’s able to offer 300 litres of luggage space with all seven seats in use. SE models have 16″ alloys wheels (though we would like to see 17″ wheels on a car this size) cruise control, chrome window surrounds, roof rails, 3 zone climate control, under seat storage, leather trimmed multifunction steering wheel, a small in dash multi function computer, automatic lights and parking sensors for the rear and front. All models now come with a 6.5″ touchscreen media system that can stream media from your mobile phone and Apple Carplay. The pick of the engines is the two litre 150 brake horse power diesel, which as a six speed manual or DSG automatic offers an excellent combination of power and economy, 9.9 seconds from standstill to 62 miles per hour and a top speed of 120 miles per hour. Official economy figures suggest 57 miles per gallon but you can get mid 40’s if you are very careful. Q1 sees price drops of up to £500, now starting at £599 AP for the 2.0 litre diesel manual in SE trim. Perfect for caravan owners as it can tow up to 2200kg braked.
