The Neon LE costs £11,595 and the LX costs £12,995 and goes on sale on June 8. The cars however could be hard to come by with sales aspirations for this year ranging from 1,600 to 2,000.
Both models will be fitted as standard with a 132 bhp 2.0 litre overhead cam engine, electric front windows and door mirrors, power steering, remote central locking, an immobiliser and twin airbags. They will also offer automatic transmission for the same price as a manual box.
The LX has identical specification to the LE but with air conditioning and anti-lock brakes. The aftersales package includes a three year/60,000 mile warranty with three years' roadside assistance. Both models will have just three options - metallic paint, an electric slide and tilt sunroof and boot-mounted CD autochanger.
