March 18, 2014: Residual values (RV) soar by up to £1,200 on some models Insignia, Mokka, ADAM and Astra all see RV improvements

Luton – Vauxhall models, including newcomers such as the Insignia and Mokka, have found favour with independent residual value experts.

Using March 2014 CAP Gold on a three year/60,000 mile basis, the new Insignia Design 2.0CDTi (140PS) is up £1,200 versus the equivalent model from March last year.

Also seeing a similar rise is the Mokka Exclusiv 1.7D (130PS), up £1,075 for the same period. Other Vauxhall models have also featured RV improvements, including Astra and ADAM.

“I am delighted with these results and it shows that the fleet industry endorses Vauxhall’s strategy to launch great cars with strong appeal,” said James Taylor, Vauxhall’s Fleet Sales Director.

“If we build desirability and good value in for the new car buyer, then this will follow for the used car buyer too.

“With our focus on improving our brand, improving specification and driving down CO2 emissions, this is all helping build positive RV momentum for Vauxhall and is also good news for the fleet industry.”
