THREE-QUARTERS OF CARS IN UK BOUGHT FROM CAR SHOWROOMS

THREE-QUARTERS OF CARS IN UK BOUGHT FROM CAR SHOWROOMS

14/09/2021 12:44:23

The majority of car owners (76%) buy their car from a car showroom, rising to 86% of over 66s, compared to just 58% of under 34s. The survey of 2,000 UK drivers, commissioned by InsuretheGap.com, finds that drivers, who prefer to buy from showrooms, do so because: 1. 34% wish to part-exchange their vehicle; 2. 33% want a showroom warranty - this is particularly important for over 66s (41%), compared to under 34s (25%); 3. 21% like a showroom's after-sales service; 4. and 11% want to be able to access finance options. In contrast, almost one in ten (9%) prefer to buy a car online or privately so they don't have to deal with car salespeople (10% men and 8% women) and 12% say they can get a better deal not buying through a showroom. The remaining buyers purchase cars from a private seller (9%), car supermarkets (4%), online retailers (3%) and gifts from family members (3%). One in twenty (5%) drivers are happy to buy a car online without even seeing it (8% men and 3% women), rising to one in ten (11%) under 34s, compared to 4% of over 55s. 9% would also buy a car without a test drive (11% men and 6% women). Ben Wooltorton, Chief Operating Office of InsuretheGap.com said: "Car showrooms continue to be the Goliath of the car industry, and remain the go-to place for most car purchases. Drivers clearly feel confident in the quality of vehicles offered and the overall service. What I do find surprising is how many people are happy to either buy a car they haven't seen or one that they haven't even test driven!"


CARS CREATING THE MOST ONLINE BUZZ

CARS CREATING THE MOST ONLINE BUZZ

14/09/2021 12:43:21

Car fans love to show off their favourite vehicles on social media and chat and debate with other petrol heads, whether it's the latest supercar that they can only dream of owning or their very first car of their own after finally passing their driving test. But which are the cars that get discussed and posted about the most online? Social media is a vital way of gaining exposure for brands of all kinds and it's no different for cars, so we've taken a look at which vehicles generate the most discussion online, taking into account three factors: mentions on Twitter, mentions on Instagram, and a number of posts on Reddit. Taking the top spot is Nissan's legendary GT-R supercar, which as well as being the most mentioned car on Twitter, was also the second-most popular car on Reddit. The GT-R is the successor to the Skyline GT-R and has been one of the most popular supercars for 13 years now and is popular amongst petrol heads for being one of the more affordable supercars on the market. In second is another iconic model, the Ford Mustang, which is by far the most talked-about car on Instagram, with over 14 million posts mentioning it. It dates all the way back to 1964 and essentially started the "pony car" trend in the US, inspiring similar models such as the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger. Its latest evolution is the all-electric Mach-E model which launched in 2020. The Honda Civic has a loyal fan base thanks to its long-standing history and family-friendly targeting. The compact car was initially known for being a reliable, fuel-efficient runaround, but later models such as the Type R, VTi, GTi, and Si have shown a sportier, higher-performance side to the Civic.


RISING INTEREST IN HYBRID CARS

RISING INTEREST IN HYBRID CARS

01/09/2021 16:31:07

Over half (52%) of Brits believe their next car is likely to be a hybrid vehicle but despite this strong intention to go greener, 68% of petrol and diesel drivers feel like they do not know enough to buy one. New research from Honda indicates that this knowledge gap is one of the contributing factors to Brits taking over a year (13 months) on average to purchase a hybrid vehicle - highlighting a gap between people's green goals and car purchases. When it comes to technology, the research revealed that hybrid drivers consider themselves to be early adopters. A third (33%) say that they are likely to try new technology before friends and family, in comparison to 18% of fossil fuel drivers. This attitude also influences whether they update other items of personal tech, with only 15% of diesel and petrol drivers likely to upgrade their mobile phones before others, in comparison to 27% of hybrid drivers. This contrast is consistent when it comes to vehicles too. Petrol and diesel drivers tend to favour the familiar, with 57% agreeing that purchasing a hybrid would be a "leap in the dark". It is perhaps understandable then that those looking for a little more tech in their lives prefer hybrid cars. Hybrids offer a great combination of petrol and electric virtues, enabling quiet, zero-emission running at lower city speeds with the power of a petrol engine available at higher speeds, along with quick, conventional refuelling for longer journeys. Some combine this innovation under the bonnet with the latest in-car gadgets too; the all-new Honda Jazz e:HEV offers WiFi hotspot capability, an AI-powered personal assistant and a My Honda+ app to keep owners connected to their car remotely.


DON'T LEAVE DOGS IN HOT CARS

DON'T LEAVE DOGS IN HOT CARS

19/07/2021 17:32:09

GEM Motoring Assist is encouraging pet owners to ensure their animals are safe and comfortable on car journeys this week. The call comes as forecasters predict sunny and warmer weather for later in the week, with temperatures rising into the high 20s by the weekend. GEM chief executive Neil Worth warns that it's both dangerous and illegal to leave an animal in a hot vehicle. "If the dog becomes ill or dies, you are likely to face a charge of animal cruelty under the Animal Welfare Act 2006," he warns. "This offence can bring a prison sentence of up to six months and/or a fine of up to £20,000." GEM has compiled a short checklist designed to ensure dogs stay safe and comfortable on car journeys: Leave your dog at home on warmer days. If you do need to transport your dog, bring plenty of fresh drinking water, and a bowl. Ensure your dog is able to stay cool on a journey. Don't let your dog travel unrestrained. Instead, use a proper travel basket or crate to create a safer space. Dog seatbelts and travel harnesses are also available. Make plenty of stops on long journeys give your dog a good drink of water. Animals are unable to sweat in the way that humans can. Dogs cool themselves by panting and sweating through their paws, so it only take a a few minutes for dogs left in cars on hot days to begin experiencing the distressing symptoms of heatstroke. If you suspect your dog is developing heatstroke on a journey, stop somewhere safe and find somewhere cool and shady. However, if signs of heat exhaustion become apparent (for example excessive thirst, heavy panting, rapid pulse, fever, vomiting, glazed eyes, dizziness), you should go straight to a veterinary surgeon. If you see a pet in a vehicle on a hot day, take immediate action. For example, if you're in a supermarket, roadside service area or garden centre car park, note the car make, model, colour and registration number, then go inside and ask for an announcement to be made. If this doesn't bring the owner out, or you're in a location where finding the owner is impossible, then dial 999 and ask for the police.


CARS BECAME A QUIET PLACE TO WORK IN LOCKDOWN

CARS BECAME A QUIET PLACE TO WORK IN LOCKDOWN

12/07/2021 13:12:20

Four out of 10 households in the UK used their car as an additional space to work, place to relax or even to catch up on TV shows during the pandemic, according to new research by Peugeot. The study of 2,000 drivers found 41% of households with four or more people said they had started to use their car for other purposes than driving during Covid-19 lockdowns. With home schooling and remote working now the new normal for many, cars have taken up a new purpose, ranging from providing a relaxing refuge to acting as a remote office space. When asked which activities drivers had turned to in their cars, more than half said finding a quiet place to relax away from others, while for 47% their car became a place to catch up on TV shows, and 43% used their cars as a place to read books. A third of respondents said they have used their car as a remote office for work. With 58% of respondents struggling to find time for themselves during lockdown, the car has become a place of peace and quiet, according to the research. Peugeot also found 37% of households said they would be more likely to use their car in this way if they owned a zero emissions-capable vehicle, that did not emit fumes when turned on, allowing them to keep warm or stay cool without idling an engine.
