Fiesta joy for Motability customers

Posted on 30 Sep 2009

The all-new Ford Fiesta is hitting the top spot for Motability sales at Jennings Ford branches across the North East.

Knocking the Ford Focus and C-MAX off the top of the popularity chart across the group, the funky, all-new Ford Fiesta, was officially launched and unveiled to the public in October last year and became available to Motability customers in November.

Jill Wilson, group motability specialist based at the branch in Stockton, said: “Prior to its launch customers were enquiring about the model which was an early indicator that it was going to be a success.”

Jill added; “We’re delighted with the response the Fiesta has generated and look forward to assisting more Motability customers with this particular product in future months.”

Offering a combination of style, value and economy, the newcomer has also been declared What Car? Car of the Year 2009.

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

Motability customers can choose from either 1.2 and 1.4 petrol or 1.2, 1.4 and 1.6 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.

Other models in the Ford range are also available to Motability customers, including the Ford Ka, Fusion, Focus, C-MAX, Mondeo, S-MAX and Galaxy, all of which are readily available to test drive at Jennings Ford.

Jennings Ford 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.
