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.

Family cars MPV Ford Galaxy S-Max Kuga for sale Chelmsford & Braintree

May 16, 2017

perkins used mg for saleperkins used fords It is the time of year that many of us are thinking SUMMER HOLIDAYS and maybe it is time to purchase a new, used or nearly new family car for your holiday travels. There is nothing like the peace of mind with a new and  more reliable form of transport with improved  safety / economy / performance over your current car.

With over 180 in total stock, Perkins Rayne have an unrivalled selection of vehicles for you to choose from. Our dealership has 2.5 acres full of stock for you to test drive and experience and see if you and your family suit the kind of car you have in mind. Of course the tradiational "Estate " car has changed in our modern world and we now have a large choice of suitable vehicles that satisfy our demands and requirements. The Ford Galalxy and S-Max are consistently in the top ten recommendation lists along with Ford Kuga and Focus. Perkins stock the Titanium X and Premium models with the highest specification and lowest mileages to give you the best nearly new savings across the country. To compliment these vehicles we also have a 4.9% APR deal available to all customers (subject to status) on all used cars for sale. We generally find we have the stock, the time and customer service levels that the main dealers dont. Why not give us a try.

The brilliant new MG GS SUV must be driven and tested to realise what superb value these models are and with the ZERO % and 5 year warranty on the car, it's definately worth booking a morning or afternoon in our demonstrators to see of this car ticks the boxes .

Perkins MG are also very excited about the NEW MG XS beiing launched for SEPTEMBER 2017 and we will have those cars in stock for the Winter 2017.

The lesser known Subaru models are without doubt one of the best kept  secrets in the motor world. These unique and individual vehicles drive different to anything else on the roads and the feeling of being "planted to the tarmac" cannot be truly understood until you drive one. Of course that famous WRX STi rally car still exists as one of the fastest point to point cars on the roads today but this is not what the brand is about.

The Subaru product is one of the safest and most reliable cars on the planet bar none. The choice of used /nearly new models is a lotwer thatn our Ford representation but that is simply because there are less cars on the road to choose from. Just 4000 units are released to the UK market anually as we cannot get any more  released. The USA market currently has 650 000 cars as the brand is finding new owners and production only allows a maximum of a million cars worldwide. Asia (home market) and Europe get the rest. The New car Subaru product currently has a 50/50 ZERO % finance offer on Outback / Forester and XV available and a £1000 deposit contribution on PCP deals on those three models and new car lead time is approx 12 weeks from order. Perkins Subaru  do have vehicles in the pipeline so ask a member of the sales team what we have coming.WE have a demonstraor vehicle available in every model of the Subaru range and we also have NEW IMPREZA and NEW XV coming in September 2017 - Google them ...very nice indeed.


Used Subaru Outback for sale Essex Nearly New

May 16, 2017

Perkins Subaru have re-stocked our Nearly New and used car display along with Pre-Reg Subaru Outback at our dealership in Rayne just outside Braintree Essex and we have some fantastic value for money for you to take advantage of. The Outback is perfectly equipped to deal with A roads , B roads and off road with the incredible Symmetricall All wheel drive system available on all models in the range but this is not the key part to the Subaru range. Lets look at some reviews. Click on the links and take in some information, then call us to arrange your test drive and make up your own mind - We are open 7 days for convenience and we are located at CM77 6SA for your navigation.

What it does do is conquer all surfaces with consummate ease. Ignore the marketing spiel about mountaineering with surfboards in the boot – the fact is that on gnarled UK roads, often covered with mud, grit, leaves, or just indeterminate drizzle, the Outback just gets on with it. Full-time all-wheel drive eliminates wheelspin, and that long-travel suspension, together with squidgy tyres, means the ride’s properly soothing too. An Audi A6 Allroad is more ‘sporty’, but it lacks the Outback’s bulletproof toughness.

At first glance, the interior is a vast improvement on the old Outback’s, but beneath the surface there are a few annoying quirks. While the touchscreen infotainment system is relatively easy to use, the glossy screen shows up fingerprint smudges and reflects light badly, making it difficult to see.There’s a mix of materials on the dash and centre console. The top of the dashboard is covered in soft-touch plastic, but lower down things are harder and feel cheap.

We’ve no complaints about the Subaru’s standard kit list, though – it includes cruise control, reversing camera, heated leather seats, keyless go, sat-nav and Bluetooth.

With the central touchscreen controlling many of the functions, the basic layout of the Outback’s centre console is clean. The dash has been decluttered and doesn’t look as busy as before, but it still feels dated.

 SE PREMIUM models come with automatic LED headlamps, cruise control, Active Torque Vectoring, 17-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, electrically-adjustable driver’s seat and tinted windows, as well as a seven-inch touchscreen. a sunroof, keyless entry and push-button start, 18-inch alloy wheels, leather seats and a powered rear tailgate.

Reliability and Safety

A strong safety suite and Subaru’s good reliability reputation should make the Outback a sound bet

Choose an Outback with CVT transmission and it’ll come with Subaru’s ‘EyeSight’ technology. The company believes it’s the most advanced crash-preventing system on the market, and includes two cameras in front of the rear-view mirror that continuously scan the road ahead for obstacles and pedestrians.

It also features a lane departure warning system and adaptive cruise control, while Subaru claims it can actively prevent an accident at speeds of up to 31mph.

The focus on safety has paid off, as the Outback has been awarded a five-star rating in EuroNCAP's crash tests, with strong scores in all areas and maximum ratings in side-impact and 18-month-old dummy tests. Adult occupant safety is rated by the organisation at 85 per cent, child occupant safety at 87 per cent and pedestrian safety at 70 per cent.

Off-road, the Outback's permanent, symmetrical all-wheel-drive system helps it to stand out among its peers. Its approach, departure and break-over angles are greater than those of most rivals, too, helping you traverse even deeply rutted tracks with greater confidence.

There are two things to consider before you pull the trigger on a Subaru Outback. Firstly, diesel models have a lower towing limit than the petrols (1800kg vs 2000kg), and secondly, Subaru's newly launched Eyesight safety system, which includes lane departure warning, city braking and adaptive cruise control, can't be added to manual models.

Even so, the Outback is cheaper than similarly sized premium rivals, a bit more upmarket-feeling than more budget SUVs and is characterised by that unpretentious, durable, 'go anywhere for the rest of time' feel that Subaru loyalists swear by.

For the majority of buyers, though, we still think buying the cheaper, faster, cleaner, more frugal and similarly spacious and well equipped Skoda Octavia Scout is what you should do. That said, the Outback is certainly worth more of your consideration than ever before.

And finally, what have we got in stock ?

BK65KDK Outback 2.0D SE AWD 6spd Manual Crystal White Pearl 17000 miles  £19995

BT65JVF Outback 2.0D Premium AWD 7 spd Lineartronic Crystal White Pearl 22000 miles £21995
