Used Ford Edge 210ps for Sale Braintree Chelmsford

July 17, 2017

used ford edge Lux 210 ps for saleNew arrival into stock at Perkins Nearly New Ford Centre this week is the rather delicious Ford Edge Titanium LUX 210 ps TDCi Powershift with just 3000 miles at a price busting  £30995 + Road Tax.

The Ford Edge is a family-sized SUV with an impressively practical interior lurking within its sizable dimensions. It’s comfortable, easy to drive and comes with a good collection of safety aids. Ford is hoping to make a step upmarket with this car.

 Moving up to Titanium spec also brings the choice of a twin-turbo 2.0-litre diesel with 208bhp and 450Nm of torque. The sole transmission choice with that engine is the six-speed automatic gearbox, however. Sport models also get the same engine choice as the latter, but with chassis and styling tweaks to help it live up to its name. 

That starting price for a New vehicle is almost as much as that of a top-spec Mondeo Vignale, but at least you get plenty of kit. 19-inch alloys are standard on Zetec models, as is Ford’s SYNC touchscreen with a DAB radio, a rear-view camera, dual-zone climate control, keyless start and Active City Braking.

Although the top-spec Edge Vignale is priced to compete with cars like the top range  BMW X3 , it’s actually considerably larger in both size and weight - and feels as composed and as  upmarket as those rivals. The cheaper Edge models make the most sense when new to make a direct comparison which is why we concentrate on Nearly New models to get you the best value deals in the market place today.

Ford makes it clear that the Edge is targeted at premium buyers, and the driving experience reflects that. It goes about its business in a relaxed and refined manner.

The Edge is one of the largest mainstream SUVs on the market, and you really feel that on tight country lanes or in town. With a width of nearly 2.2-metres it’s bigger and wider than a Ford Kuga but feels more like a RR Sport sized car without the running costs.

Zetec and Titanium models get a more comfort-biased suspension setup than Sport models, which receive firmer springs, bigger wheels and an adaptive steering system. The ride on the former is impressively smooth and soft around town, absorbing potholes and ruts with ease. The specification of this particular model is superb with Full glass Panorama Roof that opens and SONY Premium Sound and SYNC 2 Navigation / LED Headlights which are just amazing in the dark, Active park assist and Hands free tailgate to finish off this great specification motor car.

Thinking about a change ? Come and have a test drive and see how this car compares to other cars you might be considering. It really is a rather splendid addition to the range of vehicle available at Perkins Nearly New Ford Centre.We are open 7 days and to find us put CM77 6SA into your navigation or CALL us on 01376 550899 to arrange a test drive.

MG E-Motion Concept Perkins MG Essex

May 17, 2017

MG Motor has unveiled an all-new electric supercar concept at the 17th annual Shanghai International Automotive Show (19 April) – the MG E-motion. Offering a glimpse of the future, the next-generation vehicle aims to push the boundaries of innovation and technology, while meeting the needs of today’s trend-setting car buyers.

Perfectly blending style, sophistication and elegance, the E-motion embodies MG’s vision for the future.
With a slender sportsback-style design paying tribute to the brand’s hundred-year heritage, starlight matrix front grill and headlights bringing inspiration from the London Eye, and vertical tail lights developed using decades of world-leading design experience, the ground-breaking concept brings MG’s sense of fun and aspiration to the low emission marketplace.Below the surface, the MG E-motion sets the standards in plug-in vehicle capability, with the latest pure-electric modular architecture platform developed in-house and delivering 0-100kmph in less than four seconds, despite boasting a range of more than 500km. Equipped with an intelligent infotainment system, the supercar is fully internet-compatible, which MG believes will position it perfectly for the younger market.





New Subaru XV Perkins Essex Eyesight

May 17, 2017

The All-New Subaru XV has won the Grand Prix Award for achieving the highest score on record in Japan’s New Car Assessment Program (JNCAP) crash safety evaluation tests.In addition; the XV received the Special Award for being fitted with a pedestrian protection airbag as standard. XV is fitted with a suite of active, passive and pre-crash safety technologies, including Subaru’s flagship EyeSight system.

EyeSight is Subaru’s optical advanced collision avoidance technology. Systems from other manufacturers use various sensors, such as radar, microwave or camera; EyeSight functions via two camera lenses to the left and right of the rear-view mirror that together create a stereoscopic image.

One core feature of EyeSight is Pre-Collision braking which reliably captures pedestrians in dark clothing in un-lit areas, as commonly found throughout rural areas of the UK, and when needed initiates emergency braking. Up to a speed of 28mph accidents can be completely avoided and the severity significantly reduced at higher speeds.

In 2015, Subaru released data from a survey of traffic accidents involving Subaru vehicles in Japan from 2010 to 2014. The data revealed a 61% reduction in crashes for vehicles equipped with EyeSight, compared to those without.

Subaru’s Rear Vehicle Detection system is also fitted as standard; offering blind spot detection, lane change assistance and reversing assistance to enhance all-round preventative safety.

The XV is built on the new Subaru Global Platform which has been engineered to be 70% more rigid. Impact energy absorption is improved by 40% over present models by using a frame structure that absorbs more energy and high-tensile steel plates.
