Profile image for LaurenBluck

With the winter weather upon us and the

white stuff making an appearance, many drivers are anticipating a season of

travel interruptions, traffic delays and treacherous road conditions.


Fortunately, for motorists in Cornwall,

local Vauxhall retailers Truro and Falmouth Vauxhall are on hand with a choice

of all-wheel-drive models that will make light work of winter driving: the

Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer, Antara and Mokka.


The retailer's sites in Truro and Falmouth

are inviting motorists to discover more about the 4x4 variants, which each

offer the capability to perform in a range of environments.


Brett Willey, Retail Operator for Truro and

Falmouth Vauxhall comments: "At this time of year, the wintry weather

conditions can make it difficult for people to get out and about, but thanks to

Vauxhall's range of all-wheel-drive models and their off-road capabilities,

drivers can continue to embrace the open road, whatever nature throws at it."


Country Tourer: designed for adventure

The SUV-inspired Insignia Country Tourer is

based on the Sports Tourer model and boasts adaptive all-wheel drive

capability. Customers can choose between two trim levels, Country Tourer,

priced from £25,349 on-the-road, and Country Tourer Nav, priced from £26,499 on

the road.


With its high ground clearance and tough

styling, alongside variable torque delivery and a choice of two powerful

turbo-diesel engines, this robust model helps motorists to meet the demand of

the road when the going gets tough.


The models' electronically controlled 4x4

drivetrain incorporates an electronic limited-slip differential (eLSD) to

ensure stability on both paved and unpaved surfaces. This feature enables the

Country Tourer to constantly adapt to the road conditions, offers better

traction in slippery conditions, and guarantees the highest levels of driver

control and active safety.


The Insignia Country Tourer can even

provide propulsion when three wheels are on loose or slippery ground and only

one rear wheel has traction.


Antara: built to perform

The Vauxhall Antara can be equipped with an

innovative, electronically controlled all-wheel drive powertrain, offering

optimal traction and driver confidence in difficult conditions.


The 4x4 variant is available with a choice

of three trims and two efficient 2.2cdTi 16v diesel engines, and can be ordered

from Truro and Falmouth Vauxhall from just £23,390 on the road. 


For a reassuring journey, the Antara

benefits from an electronic Stability Programme (eSP) system, which works to

deliver high degrees of driving satisfaction, comfort and active safety. If a

wet surface or muddy corner catches drivers out, eSP automatically applies

corrective braking to help regain control. What's more, for safer winter

driving, front fog lights come as standard on every model.


Mokka: for all seasons

Having just passed the milestone of its

first year in production, the Vauxhall Mokka offers a superior ride alongside

advanced driving.


With a highly competitive starting price of

just £18,259 on the road for the all-wheel-drive variant, the five-seater

athletic SUV is compact enough to handle city traffic whilst enabling drivers

to embark upon more challenging roads, on or off the beaten track. And, with

competitive fuel efficiency and emissions figures alongside intelligent

technology and connectivity, it makes for a reassuring ride too.


The Vauxhall Mokka boasts a Five Star NCAP

Rating, thanks to its advanced safety features and design quality, and is one

of only a handful of cars on sale in Europe to be given such a strong test



It is also the first car in its class to

offer adaptive bi-xenon headlights thanks to its Adaptive Forward Lighting

(AFL) system, which is an optional element that improves visibility at night by

automatically adjusting the strength and direction of the headlamps to suit

different speeds, traffic scenarios and weather conditions. 


There is also the option of heated front

seats and a heated steering wheel as part of the Winter Pack, which makes the

Mokka even more appealing when the weather takes a turn for the worst.

The Winter Pack comes as standard with SE

models and is an option available on Exclusiv and Tech Line trims.


Brett Willey continues: "We would like to

invite motorists in the area to get in touch to discover for themselves the

ideal versatile all-wheel-drive Vauxhall to suit their lifestyle needs."


Finance made flexible

To make purchasing a brand new Antara or

Mokka from Truro and Falmouth Vauxhall even easier, customers can take

advantage of Vauxhall's innovative Flexible Finance scheme.


With zero per cent APR Representative, no

minimum deposit and a payment term varying between 24 to 60 months*, Flexible

Finance makes it easy for motorists to buy their chosen vehicle at a cost that

suits them.


This means that customers could, for

example, take to the road in a Mokka Exclusiv 1.6i 16v VVT (115PS) front wheel

drive with Start/Stop for just £219 a month for 60 months, with a £4,855 customer



In addition, all new Vauxhall cars come

with a warranty that could last a lifetime, offering first owners complete

peace of mind for as long as they own the car, up to 100,000 miles.
