Ford and VW both offer the greatest choice with 10 different vehicles, Ford at an average of 27 choices per vehicle and VW at just 7.2.  Mitsubishi offer 4 different vehicles at an average of 3 per vehicle but Abarth win the smallest ratio prize with 1 vehicle in 1 choice.

    It’s strange that Abarth stopped selling the cabrio version and also the automatic option in both models, even though they are well under the price cap.

    Hi Gordon Abarth uk told me motability would not accept the insurance group 30 that  turismo is now in automatic as the 145 bhp is still on the scheme is group 29 insurance and Abarth stopped selling that in automatic and for the people on here that want Tesler on the scheme even the basic version is in insurance group 48 the res are in group 50 so they will never be on the scheme unless they produce a mini cheaper type car.

    Tuesday 24th November 1741 vehicles listed. Increased by 28, all petrol.

    Kia +28

    Picanto +13

    Rio + 8

    Stonic +7

    Picanto see a new 1.0 litre engine with lower CO2 output and power, now 66bhp, the 99bhp is now an option on the GT-Line

    The Rio and Stonic get the new 1.0 litre 48v mild hybrid engine with 118bhp as a six seed manual or 7 speed dual clutch Auto. Sadly it comes with a price hike too, the Rio that was £399 AP with the old 118bhp engine is now £899 with the new mild hybrid one.

    The Stonic gets a new range of trim lines and a bit of a mid life pep up, which again attracts a premium, prices now range from £399 – £2499 AP that used to be Nil – £749 AP.

    Fact of the Day 

    Ralph Teetor, the man who invented cruise control was blind.

    Teetor’s driver had a habit of varying his speed based on whether or not he was speaking, which caused inconsistencies. In response, Teetor began working on an automotive speed control device. He received a patent for the “Speedostat” in 1945. The device was later renamed “Cruise Control,”
