Ford Pays VAT Increase

Ford Pays VAT Increase

VAT has now returned to 17.5% but Ford is offsetting the 2.5 percent increase to the end of February. This offer applies to all Ford car ranges from the compact Ford Ka to the seven seater Ford Galaxy. The scrappage incentive is still in place so there is at least another £2000 discount when buying a new Ford car.

Nigel Sharp, Ford Britain managing director, said: "Ford is offering some relief from the cold, tough start to 2010 by delaying the VAT impact on its new car prices to March.” Combined with the scrappage deals still available for customers with older cars, they present plenty of reasons to visit a Ford dealer this winter."

The Ford Galaxy has undergone a major facelift and should be on sale in March. It has a sharper new look and there are exciting new engine ranges including upgraded diesels. The interior of the Ford Galaxy is capable of all the usual accommodation. The rear most two rows of seats drop down flush with the floor to present a vast flat load area. There is not much luggage area in the Ford Galaxy when all the seats are occupied but if there are five occupants there is a whole lot of luggage space, if all the seats are flat the area is vast almost the size of a double bed.

The Ford Galaxy doesn’t cost a fortune to run it ticks all the boxes when looking for a large seven seater and doesn’t drive like a bus.
