Windscreen replacement costs are up 68%

Auto Windscreens has released figures detailing a dramatic increase in the cost of windscreen replacement over the last 10 years.

The windscreen of a Citroen C4 Picasso is 20% larger than older models, while new Ford Mondeo windscreens cost 59% more and VW Golf windscreens are a staggering 68% pricier.

Nigel Davis, Auto Windscreens sales and marketing director, said: “Windscreens of standard production cars are becoming increasingly sophisticated.

“As designers seek to improve aerodynamics efficiency, driving comfort and safety, [it] is hitting the pocket of the modern motorist.”

To help manage glass costs, Auto Windscreens is proposing people get chips repaired immediately and replace blades every 6 months.
