Arnold Clark has launched The Arnold Clark Car Show on YouTube, offering advice on new car models, the latest in-car technology and automotive industry news.
Launched in partnership with PLZ Productions, the first episode highlights the best cars for young drivers and demonstrates how to strike the “perfect balance” between a great-looking car, low insurance and safety.
The show is presented by Rachel McTavish (pictured), a broadcast journalist who has worked with STV, ITN and Channel One Liverpool.
McTavish said: “From a young age I devoured car magazines, absorbing all the facts and figures, and I was fascinated by the changes in design and technology.
“I started off with a Mark 2 Volkswagen Polo in a nasty shade of pale blue and all my Saturday money was spent patching up the engine and holes in the floor, but I absolutely adored that car and the freedom it gave me.”
During the show, McTavish seeks advice from Arnold Clark product geniuses, who describe the features of the Ford Fiesta, Fiat 500 and Vauxhall Corsa.
The show has given Arnold Clark’s employees the chance to shine and show off their expert knowledge.
For Graeme Murray, Arnold Clark product genius, it was an opportunity to share some helpful advice for parents of young drivers.
“I was interviewed about the Ford Fiesta,” said Murray.
“The episode focused on young drivers, so being knowledgeable about the Fiesta helped me discuss its safety features. Safety is such an important point for parents when young drivers are looking at potential first cars.”
During the episode, Jan James from Good Egg Drivers also offers some helpful advice on how young drivers can reduce their insurance costs.
