Vauxhall has introduced new models that undercut the list pricing of current entry-level models in each car range.
Five new Expression models, plus new ES models in the Insignia and Astra ranges, now have lower-cost entry point models in each range.
Company car users will pay reduced tax, based on lower P11D values.
In addition to the entry-level Insignia ES and new Astra ES, five Vauxhall ranges will benefit from the lower-priced Expression models: Corsa, New Astra, Astra Sports Hatch, Zafira and the Astra Twin Top.
The savings mean that a Corsa Expression costs £9,995 – more than £1,000 less than the current entry model – and the new Astra Expression is just £13,995 – more than £2,000 below where the current Exclusiv range starts.
Savings can also be found for Insignia buyers, with the model prices down by nearly £1,700 to £17,120 thanks to the introduction of a new ES model, replacing the current Insignia S.
Yet despite its more competitive price, the ES is better equipped than the outgoing model, featuring standard 17-inch Structure wheels and a CD400 CD player with MP3 format.
