Skoda Superb Middlesbrough

Recent changes to Skoda’s eco-friendly diesel version of the Superb hatchback and estate models are now offering huge benefits to motorists in the north east looking for better economy without compromising power.

WhatCar? magazine described the Skoda Superb as ‘an executive car at a family price’,
and we at Derek Slack Motors couldn’t agree more! The huge cavernous hatchback and estate models both receive smaller diesel engines that achieve more than the engine they replace. Stunning economy figures improve from 49.6mpg to an incredible 57mpg whilst emissions fall from 150g/km to just 130g/km.

Despite the the size of the engine decreasing from 1.9 litres to 1.6 litres, power and output remain the same at 105bhp and both the acceleration and top speed are unchanged at 12.5 seconds and 118mph.

Extra savings also come to private users following improvements in economy, with an additional 70 miles from every ten-gallon fill up. For company car drivers, the tax liability reduces because of the sheer desirability of this model on the second hand market, with residual values likely to be sky-high, meaning lower finance to fund the purchase or the lease. That’s great news for company car users in Teesside, North Yorkshire and County Durham.

If only every company car could achieve the same level of C02 reductions and improved economy it would be the equivalent of taking millions of vehicles off the road.

Skoda Superb drivers will already be familiar with the executive-style build quality that is a match for any of its German rivals, the VW based Superb is one of the most spacious family sized models on the market. It also features a unique boot lid called Twindoor, allowing the vehicle to become either a saloon or hatchback, depending on witch catch is pressed, with 430 litres of luggage space beneath.

The estate version is one of the largest in it’s class, offering up to 1,865 litres with the seats down, which is significantly more than a Volvo V70 estate. Standard kit throughout includes alloy wheels, air conditioning, traction control, electronic stability control, four electric windows and a five star NCAP safety rating.

If you’d like to take a closer look at the Skoda Superb, please call into our showroom at Prospect Place, A66 Cargo Fleet, Middlesbrough, Teesside. TS3 8AR

Isuzu Middlesbrough

Derek Slack Motors, main dealers for Isuzu in Teesside, held their first ever stand at the recent Stokesley Show on Saturday 18th September 2010. It was great meeting so many visitors to a show celebrating its 151st anniversary, having being in existence since 1859.

Lots of people introduced themselves, many of whom were old Derek Slack Motors’ customers, but there were new faces too, spending time at our stand admiring the Isuzu Rodeo Range. As Teesside’s main dealer for Isuzu, we carry a comprehensive stock of both new Isuzu Rodeos and used Isuzu Rodeos. Here’s a quick link to our Isuzu Rodeo webpage: http://bit.ly/bc6ntF

The Isuzu range starts at just £12,149 with the Isuzu Rodeo Denver 2.5 Double Cab 4x4 only, £299 +VAT featuring the new Fang Grille. The show was a great opportunity to spread the Isuzu message in and around Stokesley and North Yorkshire. We made so many new friends, we’re already looking forward to next year’s show. In between we look forward in seeing many of you visit our Isuzu dealership in Middlesbrough. TS38AR.

60 Registration Middlesbrough

The new 60 registration plate, proved to be one of the most popular changes in years, with the help of many exciting new Skoda, Subaru and Isuzu models launched in 2010.

Skoda in particular introduced the breathtaking new Fabia vRS 1.4 TSi Turbo 178bhp DSG, a vehicle that’s already taken over the mantle as the ‘hot-hatch’. Plus, Skoda’s super efficient Fabia Greenline II, was launched as one of the most environmentally friendly vehicles ever produced. The VAT free offer on Skoda Octavia, Roomster and Fabia, coupled with 0% finance, also proved popular with Teesside’s discerning motoring public.

Skoda customers arrived from Darlington, North Yorkshire and County Durham in search of the Yeti. The Skoda Yeti is a huge success story, combining all the rugged strengths of a traditional 4x4 with the practicality and running costs of a hatchback, the £179 per month price tag made the Yeti and extremely attractive option.

Skoda’s Superb Estate (Top Gear’s ‘Luxury car of the Year’ - 2009) is still proving a winner amongst Middlesbrough and Stockton on Tees drivers looking for extra space without compromising luxury. With a class leading 1,865 litres of boot space, colour touch screen satellite navigation, bluetooth, and full leather upholstery as standard, the Skoda Superb Estate also comes with an attractive low interest rate and just 7.9% typical APR.

As main dealers for Skoda on Teesside, our competitive 60 registration, part exchanges prices haven’t gone unnoticed by other regional Skoda dealers. We’ve seen many new customers enjoy a far better trade in price for their old Skoda at Derek Slack Motors. We make no apologies, our aim has always been to help put North East Skoda drivers into a vehicle they can afford, by giving you the best possible part exchange price for your old Skoda.

That’s only part of the story. Subaru also enjoyed very good sales, with Subaru’s, Boxer Diesel engines playing their part in the shape of the, Impreza, Legacy, Forester and Outback range, all of which offered outstanding choice for the new 60 registration. As main dealers for Subaru in Teesside, Derek Slack Motors have also seen many 60 registration Subaru customers traveling from North Yorkshire and County Durham, attracted by our competitive part exchange prices and extremely well documented customer care and aftersales service.

Finally Isuzu’s Rodeo range with prices starting from as little as £12,149 offer lower running costs than most 4x4’s along with class leading fuel economy and emmissions. The new grille gives the Rodeo an even meaner edge. Many commercial users took advantage of the £299 per month offer (plus VAT which is reclaimable). We’re building a growing reputation as Middlesbrough’s leading commercial centre.

Thanks again for reading, and to everyone who choose Derek Slack Motors on Teesside as their choice for an 60 registration, Skoda, Subaru and Isuzu.
