Posted on 21 Jan 2009

The funky, all-new Ford Fiesta is proving extremely popular amongst Motability customers at Jennings Ford.

Officially launched and unveiled to the public in October, the all-new Ford Fiesta has knocked the Ford Focus and C-MAX off the popularity chart for Motability customers at the group’s Sunderland, Gateshead, South Shields, Stockton and Middlesbrough dealerships.

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 a 1.2 or 1.4 petrol and diesel engine sizes, three or five-door body styles, 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.

Tracy Tobin, Motability specialist based at the group’s Middlesbrough branch, said;

“We are delighted with the success of the all-new Fiesta, which is proving to be the most popular model with Motability customers.”

Other models in the Ford range are also available to Motability customers, 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.

Jennings Ford also offers a number of additional services to its Motability customers, including the JenningsFord 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.
