Notwithstanding the current political and economic situation, customers are still considering performance cars.
While manufacturers are putting great emphasis into “eco” options they are still producing and developing some pretty exciting models too. Luxury and performance car deals are not dead yet.
As part of this it is pertinent to remind customers about the changes in the vehicle testing which came into effect last year and which will continue to develop over the coming year.
The worldwide harmonised light vehicle testing procedure (WLTP) which applies to all new cars registered on or after September 2018. Before WLTP vehicles were tested under the NEDC programme however, a number of high profile scandals emerged in what has been termed as “dieselgate”.
