there’s never been a better time to buy a used car

AS the UK emerges slowly from lockdown, what’s your view on where you’re going to buy your next car? Perhaps you’ve been tied into a 36-month PCP and it’s time for an upgrade or a swap. Your lease deal could be up for renewal. Or maybe your current car has just reached MOT time and you think it’s time to sell it on. But regardless of why you’re changing, you might also be considering a used car, possibly for the first time in years – and you wouldn’t be alone.

It’s arguably the most important new car that Europe’s largest manufacturer has launched since the first-generation Golf arrived in 1974. There have been delays – not just from the worldwide coronavirus shutdown, but also because of plenty of bug-fixing required at VW’s end – yet the all-electric ID.3, the brand’s first purpose-built, massproduced electric car, is finally on the road. Sales begin in Europe later this month, while potential British buyers will be able to finalise their purchases in July, ahead of first deliveries in September. The arrival of the…

ineos 4x4 squares up to original defender template

SPIED ALSO caught on camera for the first time is the Ineos Grenadier. The British company has said its rugged off-roader will be a spiritual successor to the old Land Rover Defender – and, judging by these spy shots, the company has remained true to its word. This Grenadier prototype shares the same boxy proportions as the old Defender, as well as a slatted radiator grille, flat bonnet, round headlamps and upright windscreen. It will be available in a range of bodystyles, including a traditional station wagon and a pick-up variant. Dirk Heilmann, CEO of Ineos Automotive, has previously said the Grenadier will mirror the original Defender’s platform closely, stating the SUV will have a body-on-frame construction with a steel ladder chassis and an aluminium body. Heilmann also confirmed that the finished product…
