I am not sure if this has been posted before but this looks like an excellent lease deal (just ordered one for delivery in a couple of weeks for my daughter-in-law) that beats depreciation. £280 down and under £94 including vat for a city car that seems to be right up there in terms of specification - aircon, Bluetooth, touch screen with DAB, etc.

I know that there are lease "doubters" out there but I have now had 7 years of personal car leasing and it works for me - just hand it back after a couple of years and do it again!

Around £3.50 a day to 'hire' this car. Seems pretty good value to me.

BUY BRITISH MADE.

Inb4 everything (except 'Buy British made).

​Like.....?

Not bad...works out at just over £100 net per month. I think the record on here is about £90?

I thought that it wasn't a bad price for an A to B machine particularly with the extras and supposedly 60 mpg to boot! Probably the best deal was the one that my son took out - a Renault Zoe for around £200 per month (includes a power charging post at your house).

10,000 miles will cost you around £120 PCM in fuel (40 mpg = 250 gallons = £1200).

Take off the fuel and that gives you £80 per month for the car!

Hi stevebutty

You are so right - we should protect British jobs.

A low leasing rental usually means that the car is a low depreciatior or the factory want to shift "metal" to improve the sales figures for a particular model.

In my case, the C1 is actually a platform share of the Toyota Aygo ( and Peugeot 108 ) so I assume that Toyota is making a couple of quid from a C1 sale?

In fairness to your ( correct as a Brit ) post, you can have a Nissan Micra Visia for the same money or a Honday Jazz for £150 pcm.

I am a bit of an old geezer and I remember when Nissan (Datsun as they were eons ago) were always the leader with included extras in a car (in my day, an extra was a radio!!!)

Don't think you could drive this sort of thing on the motorway could you? Deathtrap

This posting deals mullarkey is hard work! The old C1 was a three star NCAP rating but the new one is four star http://www.euroncap.com/en/results/citroën/c1/7862. IE not as much of a liability termite that you might have thought ( this car is to ship two of my grandkids from A to B so I am not going to be taking on anything to compromise that!)

Mrs nev - I am sure that someone will do you an even better deal for 5000 miles per annum or less!

Anyone seen an Aygo or i10 deal at a similar price? Would prefer those to the C1, but yet to find something sub £100

While the Honda Jazz is manufactured in Britain, the Nissan Micra is not - so while it's all well and good saying "buy British" bear in mind that while car manufacturers may have factories on British soil that does not mean that they build their entire ranges here.

NCAP stars means nothing... as long as there will be large 4x4s and lorries allowed on the same road with these things driving car smaller than a ford focus is a suicide.


Edited by: "Maniek133" 30th Aug 2015

does it include insurance too

Had one of these as a courtesy car recently.... never ever ever will I set foot in one again - just didn't get on with it at all. Good MPG but yeah that's about all I liked about it. Good for a first car I guess.

​That seems a great deal but assumes 10000 miles over the term. If you didn't do so many it effectively becomes more expensive.

Are there still any good deals about for an electric car? The Nissan Leaf seems to be the standard against which others are measured.

I agree this could be a good first car deal

£1200 per year = £100 PCM
RESULT is £100 per month for car (not £80)

​Utter tosh!

haha. you morons all going on about buying British. I bet you buy your clothes from Indonesia, your TV from China, your fruit from pretty much everywhere

Truly awful cars, I've had 3 of them all unreliable, so I'm speaking from experience.
Gearbox failed at 18k miles.
Leaking water from engine compartment into interior which also took out the flasher unit which was not covered by an extended warranty that I had paid for. (not worth the paper it was printed on)
Air conditioning tension pulley not aligned correctly and could not be cured, meant I had to have a new belt every 4-5k miles (half the service interval)
Fuel injection sensor problems on all 3 of them with a £160 bill just to test the system.
On one of them if you touched the accelerator even accidentally before starting it, the car would cut out after about 100 yards then became difficult to restart, another problem not cured.
Misfired its way even to be traded in.

The only place for French cars is the other side of the English Channel.

The 4 star this received is also from more stringent test requirements than the previous model too. NCAP don't just test for crash protection now but safety equipment is part of the score too.

You must do some mileage, this model only came out a year ago...

That's ok you only get 8k a year on this deal for 2 years... Then it's not your problem unless you go over ☺

This is the sort of lease deal you can vote Hot, A car designed to do small trips with a milage allowance you probably won't break, For 25 quid a week, What's not to like.
Would you want to whip up and down the motorway to and from work on a regular basis in it, no, But for going round you town or city, Perfect.

You are right naomipunkclan - my maths is wrong for the Renault Zoe. They actually do a 10k for under £200 per month so it works out at £90 to £100 for the car PCM. Plus there is 2p per mile for fuel to add. Still not a bad deal though! Dubai 32, no no insurance included I am afraid...

I'm new to leasing; couple of questions;
Do you get your deposit back at the end of the 24 month term?
Are the cars "brand new"
If not are services/MOT's included within the monthly price?
What's the come back to superficial/cosmetic marks, do you incur a charge for this?
What are the insurance premiums i.e is it alot more than if you were to own this car

thanking people in advance
