Vauxhall Astra at Half Price


Discounts are set to be at more extreme levels than ever before at franchise dealerships break through the 50 per cent discount rate for the first time in the history of Vauxhall sales.


The Vauxhall Astra model has been offered with as much as £9,665 discount at the official Vauxhall dealership network. The amount of discount can be seen across the Astra range of specifications as even the lower spec model are receiving dramatic discounts.


In the past manufacturers such as Skoda have offered models with over 20 per cent of discount on the models, but nothing compared to the discount currently offered at Vauxhall. The Astra Sri five door family hatchback model is said to be available at retail price £19,160. However, this week it has been announced that you have the ability to purchase this model for just £19,160.


Barnes Auto Store has been highlighted as being one the dealerships offering such a discount, which is basically half price cars. This form of aggressive and supermarket like marketing has been used in the past by US firm General Motors.


It is believed that the decision to market the vehicles in this way could be down to the individual dealership or directions coming from the higher reaches of Vauxhall UK. It has been no secret that the Vauxhall firm have been in a long battle with the Ford brand to become the UK's number one best selling manufacturer.

Vauxhall vs Ford

It is believed that rivals Ford are currently offering both the Fiesta and the Focus with discounts of up to a third off a selected dealerships. This could be down to a number of factors. The Focus model is due to be replaced later on this year and the Vauxhall Astra model is set to be replaced next year.


On the other hand, it is likely that those models that have already been registered before the 14 plate will be offered with the discount ahead of the plate change date in March. If you are looking for a car bargain, this would be the best time to go car shopping with discounts on the Vauxhall Astra model being as much as 50 per cent in selected areas.
