Vauxhall Corsa

Landmark year for sales in Scotland

Hitting rivals for six, Vauxhall was the biggest-selling manufacturer in Scotland last year, for the sixth year running, with 27,739 cars sold.


It was also the joy of six for the Corsa supermini, Scotland’s top-selling car for the sixth consecutive year. The ever-popular Astra was Scotland’s number five with 6,545 vehicles sold. Innovations such as Vauxhall Flexible Finance and the Lifetime Warranty helped drive sales.


“We are delighted to again be Scotland’s biggest-selling car manufacturer with the region’s best-selling car, the Corsa, for the sixth year running,” says Gordon Hannen, Vauxhall’s Regional Operations Manager for Scotland. “It’s the perfect way to round off Vauxhall’s 110th year of building and selling vehicles in the UK. The Corsa also celebrated its 20th birthday last year and after two decades as a top-seller it shows no sign of going out of fashion with Scottish buyers.


“Vauxhall’s excellent performance in Scotland is a huge part of our overall UK success story with sales and market share both up last year. These are exciting times for Vauxhall with three new models launched in 2013 and more to follow this year.


“We’re also in the middle of a raft of new engine launches, which will continue for the next two years, making our products more refined, efficient and desirable. One way or another, it’s clear that Vauxhall will be a force to be reckoned with in 2014.”
