With recent government changes to injury compensation rules driving insurance premiums up and young drivers in particular being hit, local Vauxhall retailer, Evans Halshaw, is helping to reinstate young motorists’ freedom by offering them a £1,000 contribution towards their insurance costs.
Whilst the average premium will rise between £50 and £70 in a year, young motorists will see the amount they pay for insurance increase by up to £1,000.1 Evans Halshaw is helping to counteract that rise and get more young drivers behind the wheel by offering those aged between 18 and 24, who buy a new Corsa Limited Edition before 30th June 2017, £1,000 towards their insurance.2
As younger drivers bear the brunt of these legislative changes, many will see their insurance premium sky rocket to over £2,000. Evans Halshaw hopes that by contributing towards these costs they will help young drivers in Middlesbrough get on the road and alleviate their concerns surrounding insurance.
Ken Swindles, Dealer Principal at Evans Halshaw, comments: “The continual hike in insurance premiums is widely talked about and it’s younger drivers who are particularly affected by these increases, making it harder for them to get on the road. We feel it’s important to support our local young motorists and help get them behind the wheel, safe in the knowledge that they are fully insured and that they are able to afford those insurance costs.
“Each year it gets harder for young motorists in terms of insurance, with many being priced out of the market. We are throwing our support behind young drivers as we firmly believe it’s important to experience the freedom that driving offers and they need our backing to gain invaluable experience on the roads. We would encourage anyone aged between 18 and 24 who is considering buying a new car to visit us to take advantage of this fantastic offer. This £1,000 insurance contribution will make a huge difference and will certainly make things a lot more affordable. What’s more, the Corsa Limited Edition is a fantastic car for a new driver.”
The dealership is offering the insurance contribution to all 18 to 24 year motorists who hold a full UK driving licence and order and register a Corsa Limited Edition before 30th June.
The Corsa Limited Edition, which boasts sporty looks, focuses on the enhanced comfort and safety of both the driver and passengers. Vauxhall’s innovative communication system, IntelliLink, can also be found in the Corsa Limited Edition, making it particularly appealing to younger drivers.
The Corsa Limited Edition also comes with OnStar, Vauxhall’s personal connectivity and service assistant, with a personal advisor on call 24/7, 365 days a year. Through the OnStar service motorists can benefit from 4G Wi-Fi, Automatic Crash Response and Stolen Vehicle Assistance.3
