Smooth and frugal with an excellent comfotable ride, its worth a look at if you want something a little different. Cute and stylish all at the same time with some very high specification models in stock.

FORD PUMA - The Puma  is one of the very best cars in its class. In fact, we think its the only small SUV to buy. Its a small (ish) SUV Crossover vehicle based on the Fiesta platform but its taller, and has way more room for pasengers and luggage that one would think possible. Lower riding and sweeter handling than most rivals, the Puma gives a sportier stance on the road and with its efficiency boosting mild hybrid system (MHEV) the power and performance stands out , the fuel economy still stands up to be counted at over 46 mpg average consumption.

FORD FOCUS - Introduced in 1998, the Focus was the replacement  for the Ford Escort in Europe and the UK. Rated highly by customers for durability, comfort and reliability , the Focus has been the go to 5 dr family hatchback for over 25 years. A truly brilliant car with Estate, 5 dr hatch and Crossover ACTIVE models added to the range including EcoBlue diesel variants along with petrol MHEV with manual and Automatic gearboxes available throughout the range or vehicles. You want economy with style, pace and some rather tasty technology to boot, come and give Ford Focus a test drive at Perkins.

The technology is incredible and the drive is virtually silent with rear wheel drive push and a luxury feel at teriffic value for money.

MG ZS - Now we start to get into the SUV of the 2020's. This car has been a game changer for SUV's in  price for both petrol and full electric vehicles ( EV) .

Its s period of change for all drivers with ELECTRIC vehicles on their way in droves as attempt to clean our planet. These cars pass all the strict levels or permissalble emissions we have in our world and whilst the Mondeo is still available to purchase, its well worth consideration. 

MG HS - The HS was a surprise when it came to market in 2018, replacing the loved but low in number of sales GS models. As MG's most luxurious model to date , this car is without doubt worth consideration. We have 1.5 turbocharged 160ps petrol engines with manual and automatic gearbox available, along with the PHEV 260 ps top of the range vehicles also in our stock.

Its not a high volume of sales car in the UK but there are plenty of excellent examples that we are always sourcing into our stock. As for the 2021 MACH-e all elecrtric vehicle. Well, that car is at the beginning of its story. With sharp Mustang key visuals around the car and sharp handling with trmendous power and range, the Ford MACH-e is a car to take by the steering wheel and see what it can deliver.
