New Vauxhall 0% Finance Offers (Spring 2014)

New Vauxhall Corsa S 1.0i 12v Twinport ecoFLEX 0% Finance

Surprise! Vauxhall's 0% finance offers make a wide range of popular cars easily accessible. Why? Because terms for (say) the Corsa S 1.0i 12v Twinport ecoFLEX can be tweaked to suit the motorist's financial requirements. How surprising. He/she can therefore choose the size of the deposit, the monthly payments and the length of the term via Vauxhall's Flexible Finance Calculator. The manufacturer will also contribute £750 towards the deposit. If the motorist does not increase this sum – and buys this three-door hatchback over the minimum twenty-four month period – the regular payments will be £453.13. This totals £11,625.12 including the manufacturer's contribution – although the Finance Calculator claims the total outlay is 12 pence less. How surprising. The buyer could, however, make smaller instalments over any number of months up to sixty so the payments could fall to £181.25 without changing the manufacturer's total. Plus, if the deposit is increased this further shrinks the monthly commitment. Either way the motorist benefits from the car's low running costs, secure handling, nice looks and class-competitive boot – then owns it at the end of the contract.

New Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer Elite 1.6i 16v VVT (115PS) 0% Finance

Surprise! The Astra Sports Tourer Elite 1.6i 16v VVT (115PS) is also available via 0% finance (representative). Furthermore, the Flexible Finance Calculator states that the manufacturer will contribute £1,000 towards this estate car's deposit. If this sum remains static - and the vehicle is bought over twenty-four months – the payments will be £881.46. This totals £22,155.04 which is 4 pence more than the Calculator claims (including deposit). However, payments could fall to £352.59 if the contract is extended to sixty months. This totals £22,155.40 (Calculator says £22,155). But never mind the variation. This Astra Sports Tourer has countless strengths such as the 500-litre boot that can be increased to 1,500-litres by folding the rear seats flat. Not bad figures for the class. This spacious workhorse is also nice to drive thanks to its supportive ride, respectable performance, precise steering and confident handling. What a nice little car. And surprise! The Vauxhall Flexible Finance Calculator reveals other prospects too. Highlights include the Zafira Tourer Elite 2.0CDTi (195PS) Bi-Turbo Start/Stop, the Cascada Elite 2.0CDTi 16v (165PS) Automatic, the Insignia Sports Tourer Limited Edition 1.4i VVT Turbo (140PS) and the Agila SE 1.2i 16v VVT Manual.  Please, no more surprises?
