Thank you to our local VW suppliers Corkhills Wigan, for allowing the CarLease UK team to test and review one of their new cars – the VW Tiguan 7 seater.
Working with a select number of supplying dealers means that we operate with those dealers who adhere to our professional standards of supply and delivery.
For local customers in the St Helens/Wigan/Warrington area, we always try to operate with local providers.
As an online business, we operate with customers far and wide, with free UK nationwide delivery. However, for those customers who want a more face-to-face relationship, it is possible to visit our premises and speak to one of our account managers/administration staff.
Coupled with the addition of a local supplier, you have a recipe for managing the transaction carefully (and with personality!).
What is quite interesting with the vehicle is that this type of SUV reflects what is commonly sought by the UK automotive market. Over the last 5 years, the UK public has moved from running multiples of vehicles (sports car/hatchback/SUV) to running less and less vehicles, as the rising motoring costs, fuel costs, pressures on home economies and stagnant wages has changed car buying/leasing attitudes. Indeed, customers now often need a car which can do a multitude of tasks – spacious, 7-seat, aesthetically pleasing and high in specification.
With many families commuting via train/bus to work, having one “family” car means that this vehicle must satisfy all requirements.
Manufacturers are investing more and more into the SUV segment, which is producing better options/engines and deals for the customer database. Whether this will come at the detriment of hatchbacks or estate vehicles, is hard to determine. However, the short to medium term future is definitely an SUV one.
