Ford is also highlighting some realigned price points for several key models which have seen prices fall in comparison with the 2012 figures. For example, Ireland’s top-selling car model, the Focus, is now available from €19,395, while Ka and Fiesta are priced from €12,525 and €15,550 respectively.

At the higher end of the scale, Mondeo is available from €23,950.

As part of the promotion, Ford is also offering FordOptions deals on Fiesta, B-MAX and Focus at the super-low rate of 4.9% APR. FordOptions is a new finance package that helps customers purchase their car with the security of a guaranteed minimum future value.

The flexible finance programme allows the customer to agree with their Ford dealer how much to pay as an upfront deposit and/or trade in, in addition to the term and monthly repayments. Then at the end of the term, the customer can decide to - 1 renew their car with a new model; 2 return their car with nothing further to pay; or 3 retain the car once the agreed final payment has been made.

As an alternative to FordOptions customers can choose standard Hire Purchase at the low rate of 5.9% APR.

Ford has been Ireland’s favourite motoring brand for 23 of the last 24 years when sales of cars and commercial vehicles are taken into account.

A typical deal under FordOptions for a new Fiesta Zetec 1.2 litre 5-door model (on the road price from €15,880) could see monthly payments of just €169 once an agreed deposit/trade in is factored in.
