“Keeping a keen eye on prices, especially during harder economic times, is a key aim of Motability. The good news for 2010 is that not only are we able to offer low prices, this fantastic value applies to some of the most popular car models on the market.

“In fact, there are cars of every shape and style at some of the best value prices ever seen.”
 
Nigel Sharp, Ford managing director, said:
 
“Anyone who recognises good value will seize on the Ford cars available through Motability in 2010.

“Disabled motorists and their families will enjoy one of the largest selections of cars, including the highly popular diesel Ford Focus, at no additional cost as well as the entire Ford range available with reverse parking sensors. Getting on the road has never been such great value.”

“The choice available to Motability customers looking at a new Vauxhall car is excellent. Models such as the New Astra, the seven-seat Zafira, and others, are available from no additional cost to the monthly payment.

“The wide range and great value means there is a Vauxhall car available through Motability to suit everyone regardless of their family, budget or mobility needs.”
