Why Buy New?

New Ford vehicles come equipped with the latest technologies which make them easier and more enjoyable to drive – and safer to travel in.

    Fuel Efficiency Ford is constantly evolving its powertrain technologies. EcoBoost engines are a case in point. They’re lighter and take up less room than larger, heavier turbocharged equivalents while offering enhanced efficiency, which means they’re easier to live with.

      Michael helped us choose our new car, gave us extremely thorough information throughout, changed his schedule to fit ours and was extremely friendly and courteous throughout. He answered all our questions and not once did I believe he was taking advantage or overselling us. We're very happy with our new car and got a great deal.

      What to look for in a new car

      • Cost – how much are you prepared to spend to get the best car for your budget?
      • Practicality and space – is the car easy to access (does it have five doors, for example) and is there enough room inside to accommodate friends and family? Consider the size and flexibility of the boot too.
      • Efficiency – are you looking for a fuel-efficient petrol or diesel car – or an electrified vehicle that’s even more affordable to run?
      • Performance – how fast does the car accelerate, how does it handle, what are its braking capabilities, what is its suspension set up and how aerodynamic is it?
      • Safety – does the car have a high Euro NCAP crash-test rating?
      • Technology – is the car well-equipped. For instance, does it have a decent sound system, satellite navigation, connectivity options, etc.?

      The best way to assess a new Ford car is to book a new car test drive with Gates Ford. 

      Is it worth buying a new car?


      There are definite advantages. For a start, you can choose the exact model that suits your needs, you’re provided with a full manufacturer warranty, and you’ll be the first ever owner. Furthermore, it won’t need an MOT until the third anniversary of its registration

      Should I buy an electric car?

      How often should you get a new car?


      On average, UK motorists tend to replace their cars every four to six years, but it really depends on your finances and personal preferences

      Why are new cars cheaper than used?


      Generally speaking, new cars are more expensive than used cars, but new car financing can sometimes mean lower monthly payments compared to buying a used car with finance. Also, some new cars are offered with incentives and discounts.

      Should I buy a petrol car?


      The majority of Ford vehicles are available with EcoBoost petrol engine options which deliver excellent fuel economy, low emissions and enhanced efficiency.

      Are new cars worth it?


      Yes. Here are just three reasons why a new car is worth buying:

      • Choose the exact specification for your ideal model
      • Benefit from the full extent of the manufacturer warranty
      • No history gaps to worry about – you are your car’s very first owner

      Is new better than used?


      A new car is less likely to have any issues – and in the unlikely event that it does, they’ll be covered by the manufacturer warranty.
