All-new Fiesta is available to Motability customers

Posted on 29 Oct 2008

Motability customers visiting Jennings Ford can now take advantage of a new addition to the family.

The funky, all-new Ford Fiesta, which was officially launched and unveiled to the public this month, is available to those customers who are eligible to purchase a vehicle through the Motability Programme.

For more than three decades, the Fiesta has been one of Britain’s most popular and best-loved cars, with some 12 million models being sold worldwide.

Expected to top the Motability popularity chart and knock the Ford Focus and C-MAX off the Motability hot spot, the all-new Fiesta is available for immediate test drive at Jennings Ford’s branches located at Eslington Park in Gateshead, Riverside Road in Sunderland and Newcastle Road in South Shields.

“We are delighted to be able to offer the all-new Fiesta model to Motability customers and look forward to the new Fiesta being a huge success and further increasing Motability sales at the dealership.”

The Eslington Park dealership has just reported an increase of 56% for Motability sales between January and September of this year with 110 models being sold, compared to the same period last year when 71 models were sold.

With improved space, better specification, greater safety and smart Kinetic styling, the all-new Ford Fiesta is available with a wide choice of engines and trims.

Motability customers can choose from either 1.2, 1.4 or 1.6 petrol and diesel engine sizes, three or five-door bodystyles, 12 colour variations and three equipment levels including the Style+, Zetec and Titanium. All of the models have five-speed manual transmission and automatic models are also available.

Motability customers can still take their pick from other models in the Ford range, including the Ford Ka, Fiesta, Fusion, Focus, C-MAX, Mondeo, S-MAX and Galaxy, all of which are readily available to test drive at JenningsFord.

JenningsFord also offers a number of additional services to its Motability customers, including the Jennings Ford Home Visit Programme and an Adaptation Service.

The Home Visit Programme is in place if, for whatever reason, the customer is unable to visit the showroom in person. It allows appointments to be made at the convenience of the customer and in the comfort of their own home.

The Adaptation Service involves vehicles being specifically adapted to meet individual needs and requirements.

To qualify for a vehicle through the Motability Programme, customers must be in receipt of one of the following benefits: the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC of DVLA), War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMA) or currently driving a government trike or mini.
