Not sure how this will go down but this is a hell of a big car for the money.
Not the best reviews, not the best economy but this is a full size SUV for Super Mini pricing.
You can finance £6K on interest free for 36 months also.
So chopping out the first 1-2 years depreciation.
Offer on is until they sell out or until the end of the month, which ever is soonest.

Not sure if that is th pre 2011 engine update, suspension and interior update?
Depends if you reviewed it at £14K I suppose rather than at nearly £22K? prefer this to a Dacia duster to be honest.
Owners seem reasonably happy on reevoo
http://www.vauxhall.co.uk/vehicles/vauxhall-range/cars/antara/antara-reviews.html

The reason it is so cheap is though is because it is being replaced in 2016 and they have purchased a bulk amount of the remaining stock.

Good deal in my books, but others may think otherwise.

For a 35K miles or under 12 plate cheapest on autotrader is £10k, even if trade in was only £8K, you are only staring at £6k depreciation in 3 years.
Don't think may new cars can in the class can beat that to be honest? but always happy for people to prove me long.

Well it is in the same size bracket as Ford Kuga, Landrover Discovery Sport, Kia Sorrento, Hynudai Santa Fe.
I would class them as full size and things like Qashqai, Duster, Mokka, Capture etc. as compacts.
Only the proper Discos, Range rovers and Pathfinders are significantly larger.
Don't actually dislike these, anyone out there in HUKDland actually got this model/spec?
Are they any good from personal experience?
Surely they should of changed the design of the stereo by now. Reminds me of being in a vectra. A roller coaster was more comfortable.

On a serious note, looks really tacky.

From what I here (as with all diesels) they are no good if you are doing mainly short journeys an the DPF and MPG get hammered.
But to be honest people moan about the same issues on nearly all diesels. Shoddy research and manufacturers and dealers not being clear on what type of driving suits a diesel are the main issues.
Think the pre 2011 versions had a number of quality issues but the face lift seems to be a lot better.
Thats a lot of crappy metal for the money.

At least show the equivalent models. For that money you could get touch screen Media Nav in the Duster.
Apparently, Peter Vardy are selling a Vauxhall Anara, not an Antara (check their website!) maybe this is a Chinese copy?

Fair enough, but it still far more basic, has no leather worse safety features, less kit and has a far smaller engine.( But that may be better for some buyers)
Very good deal. The Arnold Clark deal is also decent as I have an old banger I can use for the scrappage discount.

Interesting question, I don't suppose you can get the 2k scrappage discount on the Peter Vardy deal?? If so I'll be ordering it even though my current lease has 3 months to run!

Fuel economy, most never pull anything or go off road. Apparently real world the difference between AWD and FWD is around 7-8mpg on this.

Hi, not as far as I know as they are pre-reg (I think it is only on first owner for scrappage) but worth an ask.
We chopped in the wifes car and it was not worth much more than scrappage but got a fair PX (virtually the same as certain car buying websites. :))

Hi, It is pre reg but have been assured it has 10 miles on the clock and has not a mark on it, registered around 3 weeks ago.
Not been to see it, drove one locally as their garages are miles away from me.
Edited by: "Dusterfluster" 17th Oct 2015
It's a small or compact suv. Discos, pathfinders, land cruisers etc are full size.

Either way they are sooo out of date.

It's fairly heavy car but plenty of pull. Solid feeling and firm (ish) ride. Plenty quick enough and a lot higher than Qashqai, IX35, etc.
Loads of room, especially in the back.

More 4X4 like than car like if you know what i mean.It does not feel like a current crop soft roader which are basically estate cars.

And the same size as this? and around £20K more
It is also available as a 5 seater? (HSE)

When I bought my 2002 vectra, the very same stereo was installed. So effectively that stereo is coming up to being 14 Years old.

So I guess that would be where the cheat emission device is hidden if there was any.
