    HUTCHINGS VAUXHALL ENCOURAGES REVIVAL OF OUTDOOR SKILLS THANKS TO THE COMBO LIFE

    Hutchings Vauxhall is championing an initiative to inspire more parents in the South Wales area to head out in the car this spring to spend some quality family time together, with a little added help from the five and seven-seater Combo Life.

As Easter fast approaches, many families are looking forward to packing up the car and heading outside. To encourage others to venture outside this spring, local Vauxhall retailer, Hutchings Vauxhall is taking the opportunity to raise awareness for beloved outdoor skills that are dying out.

 

Hutchings Vauxhall has revealed research from Vauxhall which found that over 50 percent of parents believe their children have no outdoor skills as a result of being glued to their mobiles, laptops and tablets. A further 83 percent of parents feel it is important to pass on skills such as reading a map or identifying a flower, yet half admitted they wouldn’t feel confident teaching this.

 

However,  Hutchings Vauxhall  is championing an initiative to inspire more parents in the South Wales area to head out in the car this spring to spend some quality family time together, with a little added help from the five and seven-seater Combo Life.

 

In fact, out of the families questioned, 40 percent said their favourite part of a journey was the chance to have conversations and enjoy each other’s company. And more than a third (35 percent) enjoy the quality time together that they would not otherwise get. What’s more, a staggering 53 percent admitted to their children not knowing any outdoor skills, although 43 percent of parents would like to teach their kids how to read a map.

 

With 83 percent of parents agreeing it is important for future generations to hold outdoor skills, the Combo Life, now available at  Hutchings Vauxhall  , makes the perfect partner for getting out with the kids. With a huge 1,355 litres of boot space (for your camping gear) and keyless entry (for when your hands are full), the all-new Combo Life is Hutchings Vauxhall’s most versatile vehicle yet, with its seating for up to seven people and generous luggage space.

 

Steve Hutchings, Managing Director, at Hutchings Vauxhall, said: “You can’t put a price on how important it is for the family to get outside spending quality time together, whether it’s jumping in the car for a Sunday adventure or a weekend away. Exploring the outdoors is some of the most precious moments a family can spend together, and the Combo Life is the perfect fit for all.

 

“With many safety features and enormous luggage space, the Combo Life also includes a state-of-the-art eight inch touchscreen infotainment system including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, should your escape not be totally gadget-free. We’d like to encourage all motorists in the area to visit the dealership and see how the Combo Life can transform their lifestyle into an endless exploration of outdoor adventures.”
