Vauxhall increases prices by an average of 1%

VAUXHALL increased prices of the Astra, outgoing Vectra, Omega, Sintra and Tigra by an average 1% on Saturday. Simultaneously the Luton-based manufacturer increased prices of the Corsavan, Combo (up by £80) and Brava (up by £120) vans by an average 0.9%.

Typically Astra and Tigra prices increase by £150, Vectra and Omega by £170 and Sintra models by £200. The price increases come a week after Vauxhall announced increased prices for the facelifted Vectra due to go on sale in March and a major shake-up of the Corsa line-up in its run-out year.

The £170 rise on the outgoing Vectra takes a GLS 2.0i 16v saloon/hatchback to £17,165 on-the-road - within £60 of the £17,225 price of the equivalent facelifted Vectra model. The price changes, part of the annual round of January new car price rises. Sample on-the-road prices with previous prices in brackets include: Astra - LS 1.6i 4-dr/5-dr £13,320 (£13,170), LS 2.0Di 16v £14,640 (£14,465), CD 1.8I 16v 4-dr/5-dr £14,520 (£14,370); Vectra - LS 1.6i 4-dr/5-dr £14,810 (£14,640); CD 2.0Di £18,355 (£18,185); Omega - CDX 2.5i V6 £23,720 (£23,550), Elite 2.5 TD £28,820 (£28,650); Sintra 2.2i 16v 7-seater £20,150 (£19,950); Tigra - 1.4i 16v £13,295 (£12,970). New van on-the-road prices include: Corsavan Epic 1.7D SE £7,695; Combo LS 1.4i hi-torq £9,845, Brava 4x2 2.5Di singlecab £11,025.
