Enquiries: Jan – June leasing results

Enquiries about the Grandland X

Enquiries about the Grandland X

Vauxhall was the fastest-growing manufacturer in the personal leasing market in the first half of 2019, with enquiries increasing by more than 60% year on year.

During the first half of 2019 the Astra and Corsa models remained popular, but it’s the brand’s affordable SUVs that generated the most enquiries. The new Grandland X was Vauxhall’s most enquired model, followed by the Mokka X.

Vauxhall has never been a major player in the personal leasing sector but the brand ranked 10th based on enquiries, above Ford and Kia. It has enjoyed strong growth since becoming part of Groupe PSA.

This turnaround can be attributed to several factors, from its successful marketing as a ‘British’ brand during a period dominated by Brexit discussions, to its focus on offering great value to consumers.

Elsewhere, queries for Citroen – another PSA-owned company – also grew by 17% in the first half of 2019. The top ten most popular models of the year, however, are still dominated by premium German brands.
