A one year 10k miles personal lease deal on a diesel Citroen C4 Cactus - £950 or so up front but under £80 per month

225
Found 25th Sep 2015
Deal is back on for a couple more weeks!

I appreciate that the Cactus may well be a "marmite" car in terms of looks but the mpg of this diesel car is excellent and it appears quite spacious; certainly more than a super mini?

Yup indeed...
Seems reasonable if you can put up with the horrendous looks!

Doubtful on a 12 month contract

It's a Citroen dear. I wouldn't want to drive something that looks like plastic bubble wrap...

No maths for me to do. What cars have been available for £150 all in including deposit?
Will there be an obligation for the hirer to fund at least one service? Thanks.

​You probably don't drive a Citroën then ;-)
Personally I don't mind the look of it and I applaud Citroen for trying something different. Too many cars on the road today are just dull and boring-looking homogenous euroboxes.

Indeed and certainly not a diesel...
I don't get what Citroen are trying to do with this. Surely after a few years the big plastic thing down the side of it will look old and worn and tatty. Why don't they think of the future.
Also, this deal should only be available to personal customers who have a car allowance/can claim business mileage. For a broker to put an order through then they would have to 'fib'. Not very clear on a lot of the websites - fortunately one does make it clear:

Thinking of doing one of these deals as I need to sell my car whilst the mileage isn't too high but I have no idea what car to buy next.

I don't know for sure, but I would have thought that is the whole point - the plastic panel should be easily and affordably replaced.

It's for supermarket/car park dings.

Ironic thing is, the pr1cks will be on the inside of this cactus


It's not a VW executive motor though.

Servicing? Failed components. All cars are built for planned obsolescence...
Title could do with changing on this to show that total price for 12 months
This a slightly better deal - £376 + 11 x £124.39 = £1,742 or £145 per month.

contracthireandleasing.com/car…00/

I went for this last week, but paid an extra £13 a month for the higher spec "Flair" model.
This was the cheapest, less than 2 yr deal,for a family sized diesel car that I could find. Next closest on price, would be a Hyundai i30 + £24 month or a Nissan Pulsar = £7
Should be delivered next week.

I have made a spreadsheet on car running costs. On fuel and road tax alone, this will save me £80 a month compared to our current 2002 mini cooper. When you take into account depreciation, loan interest, repairs, tyres etc, the total running costs of the new car, work out £50 a month less than the 13 year old mini, with 115,000 on the clock.




I should get the car next week

No.
You'd have to pay me more than £150pm to drive this eyesore

probably terrible car as is most of the french cars, but I quite like the looks of it at least!

Return customers? Better residual values?

I don't mind the looks but the odd thing about this SUV is that it's no taller then a normal car. Then there's the fact that it's French, but it should be reasonably reliable in the 2 years of the lease.
5th Gear tested it and gave it 9 + 9 + 8 = 27 out of 30. One of their highest ever scores.
I'm not sure if I like the look of it or not. I only have to drive it for a year anyway, I chose it mainly on the cost

Diesel residuals will not be strong in the future, regardless of the VW (non-)story...
