Used Ford Galaxy for sale in Chelmsford & Braintree

October 2, 2017

used ford galaxy for sale braintreeperkins galaxy for sale in chelmsfordAt Perkins Nearly New Ford Centre, we are constantly changing our stock mix of Galalxy models as the market moves very quickly and supply is of great demand. There is really only one true 7 seat MPV in the market that counquers all and our fast moving stock offers great flexibility of choice and models in the range.

The fantastic Euro 6 diesel FORD TDCi technology is up to the latest emission regualations so will last you through your ownership process for the next 20 years no problem. Dont be confused about buying a diesel in 2017/2018.  The UK media have very much mis-described the current situation with diesel emissions which rather than help you decide what to buy has generally confused many buyers.

We have tried to simplify this for you. There is petrol technology that has lower/ similar emissions to diesel engines and the use of HYBRID cars do offer a very limited choice in the market place BUT...the decision you need to make, if your car usage is to continue over the next few years as it has over the last few years of your current car, then buy the engine that suits your requirements. If you need  40- 50 mpg out of your familly or company vehicle - go for diesel. The technology on board these latest Ford models is less harmful to our world than older diesel engine cars, so you are doing your bit just by taking an older vehicle off the road and changing into newer technology. With Stop/Start function there is an increase in fuel economy when stuck in traffic and this function also helps to lower the emissions of the car. With the Ford low emission technology used on all the latest Ford diesel engines with Bi-Turbo engineering, they are more efficient, have higher power outputs, better fuel consumption and offer a smoother and quieter delivery of power than you will be expereiencing with an older model vehicle. Optimum efficiency is demanded at all times with the range of Ford engines available to you from Perkins Used Ford Centre.

So what do have in stock today - 02.10.2017 - Starting from £14495 - £26995 offering superb value for money as Nearly New very low mileage Fords with extra low APR finance available, Perkins have selected a range of Used vehicles to offer Automatic/Semi Auto Powershift Gearboxes and Manual models - Offering wonderful specification such as Leather trim / Massage Multi Contoured Seating with Heated and Cooling functions - Panoramic Opening Glass Roofs - SONY Premium Audio in car sound technology - Ford SYNC 3 Connectivity with Wi-FI and App Link functions - Family Packs (Rear Sunblinds and Picnic Trays and Rear AIr Con) - Winter Pack ( Heated Seats and Steering Wheels) - Detachable Tow Bars - Privacy Glass - Front/Side and Reverse Parking & Vision Cameras) - Along with LED Headlights for clearer and safer night vision - Blind Spot Monitoring for safer motorway travel and adaptive Cruise Control to complete the set of amazing and genuilly useful car features that imporove your journey with safety and confidence.

Used Subaru for sale Essex

July 24, 2017

used suabru for sale essexnearly new subaru for sale essexHere at Perkins Subaru, we have a great choice of Used / Nearly New and Ex Demonstrator vehicles for sale that you you can drive and enjoy. With the unique Symmetrical All Wheel Drive system, the Subaru range of cars makes you feel "planted" to the road like no other car. Of course the off road ability is always covered with this brand along with X-MODE, that is standard on many of the vehicels we hold in stock,  you will struggle to find somewhere you cannot go but is not all about that when driving a Subaru from Perkins.

Negotiating steep, rough, extreme terrain is a challenge - even to the most experienced SUV or off-road driver.

Available across several Outback and Forester  models*, Subaru’s X-Mode with Hill Descent Control gives you reassuring control with the best possible grip at the push of a button. Navigate poor roads and tracks, wet or icy surfaces and challenging hills – calmly, safely and surely.

X-Mode with Hill Descent Control takes command of the engine, transmission, brakes, and other components to provide the best traction and grip in difficult conditions. When engaged, it automatically helps maintain a constant, controlled speed when ascending up or descending down steep slopes and hills.

Reassuringly better: Subaru safety

Subaru has always put safety front and centre. So it’s no accident that the latest Subaru Outback, Forester and XV hold the EURO NCAP 5 star accreditation. These independent, regularly updated crash tests recreate real-life accident scenarios that could result in injury or death for car occupants or other road users. Put simply, the maximum 5 star safety rating means ‘Overall good performance in crash protection. Well-equipped with robust crash avoidance technology’. There are several factors that make the way Subarus are built better, safer and more secure in a crash.

Crumple zones

Key components such as engine, suspension and steering are cradle-mounted. This lengthens the front crumple zone available.


The Subaru XV hasn’t just been awarded the maximum five-star safety rating in the latest round of Euro NCAP safety performance tests; it’s also achieved the highest score for Child Protection awarded by Euro NCAP. The XV also achieved the highest combined score for Safety Assist and Adult, Child and Pedestrian Protection in its class*. Featuring Subaru's proven Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, the XV also introduces an advanced impact energy relay structure, so both the driver and passengers are well-protected throughout the car. The USA’s Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) has awarded the all-new Subaru WRX STI, ‘Top Safety Pick’ – its highest possible vehicle safety ranking.

Every vehicle (excluding WRX STI) marketed by Subaru (UK) Ltd is covered by a 5 Year / 100,000 mile (whichever is sooner) Limited Warranty.Longevity you can trust:
5-YEAR peace of mind warranty.

Our vehicles are made to last. In fact, over 99% of Subaru cars built in the last 10 years are still on the road.

For total peace of mind, every vehicle (excluding WRX STI) marketed by Subaru (UK) Ltd is covered by a 5-Year / 100,000 mile (whichever is sooner) Limited Warranty.

Local Used Ford Sales Centre Braintree & Chelmsford

July 24, 2017

At Perkins we are constantly holding 150+ Used and Nearly New vehicles in stock so you have a massive choice of model, colour, variant and specification available for you to buy. Our experieinced sales team will listen to your requirements and help you decide the right vehicle for you in your price bracket. We are FCA approved so we have  the answers to your finance queries and we can also help if you are one of the many customers in the market place that are currently running a PCP deal and perhaps want to change the direction of financing your next vehicle. You are not the only one who is finding the numbers don't add up like you were told they would when you last bought your car elsewhere and we have  Hire Purchase offers at very low rate APR's to perhaps balance you out from your previous purchase into your next new/used car.

With a choice of Ford vehicles from the whole range of cars available to you, we can explain the technology of this brilliant range of vehicles are equipped with and we take the time to ensure you understand what you are looking at and there is no rush or hassle to buy at Perkins Nearly New Ford Centre.

If you have a diesel engined car, it's no problem. Yes there has been much  talk in the media and not so much by the manufacturers that diesel engined cars are bad and dirty and undesirable but that is not neccesarily true in the current used car market and these comments in the media are not really relevant to used cars or part exchange valuations at this current time (24.07.2017) as the process will very likely to be only  applicable to NEW vehicles and that time is still a way off. There are some vehicles ( as always) that are less desirable in the market that perhaps being diesel may affect the value but those hardest hit are currently the VW brand of which the reasons are obvious but most other marques have not been affected as yet, so shop with confidence if you have a petrol or diesel vehicle to part exchange.

We are definately seeing a trend towards petrol engine cars whether they are small or large but for MPV's and 4x4's the diesel variants are still popular and values remain strong - The fuel efficiency of these larger people carriers pretty much balances out the emissions CO2 ratings for use and ownership life so don't be put off because of media opinions. We are all individual and we all have our own usage and reasons for purchase so we all have different circumstances for change and we are here to help you through that process.

Stock changes every day and if you are looking for a particula Ford/ Subaru or MG that you cannot see in our stock then CALL US on 01376 550899 and ask for the sales team and tell them what you are after and we iwll see if we can find it for you.

Alternativey, you can e mail us at and we will contact you back immediatley.

Many Thanks - Sales Team

Used Subaru Outback for sale Braintree/Chelmsford

July 19, 2017

used subaru outback for sale essexpre reg subaru outback It is not a mainstream motor car that is for sure but when it comes to an extremely spacious, unique and capable esate car to cover all terrains, on road and off road, a new or used Subaru Outback should be a massive contender on your list of cars. The Subaru All Wheel Drive Symmetrical drive system is without doubt one of best in the world and Subaru's BOXER flat 4 engine is technically unrivalled in balance , smoothness and low noise vibration that  creates  a low centre of gravity to enable one of the best handling estate cars on the market . However these factors are just the tip of the Iceberg.

Get behind the wheel of this spacious vehicle and the technical design and simplicty are a marvel of modern design. Thoughtful positioning of all the controls required to drive this car makes the driver feel at home. The touch and feel is quality as well as robust and the perfection in engineering becomes apparent immediately.

The Outback is fitted with Subaru’s tough four-wheel-drive system, which means it can show some bigger and pricier 4x4s a clean pair of heels off-road. It also has a 200mm ride height and panels that protect the underside of the car to help it over rough terrain. Engine options comprise a 173bhp 2.5-litre petrol and a 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel, while there’s a SE Premium as the main model available there are still  a few SE models in the market place that are without the PREMIUM spec of Leather/Memory/heated seats/ power Sunroof/ power Tailgate but still a very nice specification vehicle.

It’ll come as no surprise that the 2.0-litre diesel is the more efficient of the two engines,  of the two to drive they both have  a lot of character and mid-range pulling power. Both are great for towing and off-road driving. Though it takes a bite out of fuel economy and emissions, the Lineartronic automatic gearbox is worth considering if you plan to use the Outback off-road, as it has a special mode that sets the car up for slippery surfaces and maximises grip which is quite breathtaking to behold in action.

As an A and B road car, the Outback has a high seating position for a safer view of the road and the suspension is compliant and surefooted in its execution. The paddleshift controls behind the steering wheel allow instant upshifts for overtaking if more power is required and the gear change is almost imperceptible in AUTO mode, it really makes a nice change to be in complete control. On a motoway cruise the Outback also excels.  A steady 70-75 is barely 2000rpm which makes cruising a comfortable environment for driver and passengers alike and our demonstrator 2.5 petrol is averaging 36 mpg with a decent mix of all roads and our diesel demo that has just been sold was averaging 44 mpg - REAL WORLD DRIVING for sure which ties is very nicely with the manufacturers figures too.

EYESIGHT is the standard safety feature on all Outback Lineartronic models and soon to be standard across the whole range of Subaru cars. It is a a safety sytem related to anit-collision control paired with adaptive cruise control. Above the rear view mirror on the car, there are 2 "eyes" that watch the road in front to help you negotiate your way over the British roads with safety and confidence in any unforseen circumstances that may occour. Ask a member of our sales team for a demonstration of how great this system is.

You need an estate car for family life and want to be a little bit different ? You require strong residual values and low cost running ? You need off road capability and one of the safest cars in the world ? Come and drive a Subaru Outback and tell us what you think.

The Subaru Outback  finished 20th out of the 75 cars ranked in the Car Buyer  2017 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey of cars currently on sale in the UK.
