Budget headlines

20 March 2014


This was the chancellor’s fifth Budget since the Coalition Government took power in 2010 and his penultimate one before next year’s general election.  There were no great giveaways, but there was good news in terms of economic growth.  The Office of Budget Responsibility (OBR) revised its growth forecast up again, saying the economy will grow 2.7% in 2014, 2.3% next year, 2.6% in 2016 and 2017 and returns to long-term trend of 2.5% thereafter.

Parking bay size rethink as cars get bigger

19 March 2014

The UK government set to give councils power to set car parking space sizes as current minimum size is too small for modern cars
 
The minimum width of parking bays will be abolished by the Government because cars have become too big.  The size of parking spaces has remained the same since 1994 while car dimensions have continued to grow as extra safety features have been fitted.  The growing popularity of 4x4s and SUV crossovers have also contributed to the current bay sizes just not being big enough and drivers are increasingly being hit with unfair fines for parking over lines or having their cars damaged.  Currently, parking bays on roads can be a maximum length of 6.6 metres and minimum of 4.5 metres, and a maximum width of 2.7 metres and minimum of 1.8 metres.

New Renault Trafic unveiled

18 March 2014

Renault has released pictures and more details of its new third generation Trafic which goes on sale in the UK June 2014. Introduced in 1980 to replace the Estafette and followed by a second generation with styling way ahead of its time 13 years ago, Trafic has achieved more than 1.6m sales globally to date.  Specific details remain scant — Renault is in drip-feed mode for this launch — but at least we now have a better idea of what the new Trafic will look like in production form.  Model choice will remain the same as the current generation with two wheelbases and two roof heights, and it will be available as a van, crew van, minibus and platform cab.  Engine choice is a bit of a surprise, however, for a van of this size.  The current 2.0-litre diesels are being replaced by a selection of 1.6-litre units. Both single variable geometry turbo and bi-turbo diesels will be offered, with the latter claimed to have combined cycle fuel consumption of 39.2mpg.  Renault hasn't yet revealed power outputs, but Vauxhall has for its jointly developed new Vivaro: 90hp, 115hp, 120hp and 140hp.  Trafic production has been relocated from Alliance Partner Nissan’s Barcelona plant to Renault’s Sandouville facility in Normandy.  Formerly used for passenger car production and following an investment of €230m it has been transformed into Renault’s third centre of LCV production in France; the other two are in Maubeuge (Kangoo) and Batilly (Master).
