Take on winter with Vauxhall at Truro and Falmouth Vauxhall
By LaurenBluck | Monday, December 16, 2013, 14:36
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
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
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."
