I'll be the first to admit I don't know much about these car leasing deals. I don't even drive (yet)

However, having a look around over the last couple of days comparing prices on insurance and leasing etc, I stumbled across this deal which seems ok for infrequent drivers or people just doing small commutes. (Less than 5000miles per year)

Price breaks down as follows

£999+vat Upfront Cost (£1198.00)
£150+vat Admin fee (£180)
£33.99+vat Monthly Lease (40.79)

Total over the 18months £2112.22 or the equivalent of £117.35 monthly.

The car may not be to everyone's style but I don't think I've yet seen a cheaper way of getting a brand new car on the road for so little money.

Ere we go then, a car lease deal........ Let the war of words commence.
Always reminds me of the Griswold family truckster, but I must admit the cactus is growing on me. Looks better in some colour schemes than others
Could buy a second hand car for £2000
so you don't own the car at the end?
could buy a car for that!

With no warranty, pay tax, pay more on petrol, pay mots, risk spending £2000 and it being worth £500 in a month if something serious goes wrong. You completely miss the point of leasing. Fixed cost motoring for a brand new car.

Plus I don't think you'd get Sat Nav, DAB, Cruise Control, Parking Camera etc etc on a 2nd hand £2k car.
It's a Citroen Cactus! £2,112 doesn't seem very much for Citroen to pay me for the embarrassment of being seen driving it
Chatuk, you do realise in your comment "I don't think I've yet seen a cheaper way of getting a brand new car on the road for so little money" that lease deals DO NOT include insurance don't you?
And for a young driver you should budget at least another few thousand a year for fully comprehensive insurance.

Sorry, yes I do. Obviously I meant getting a car on the road excluding the insurance, petrol, road tax etc

Also, this deal isn't for me. I just stumbled on it while doing some research into costs etc and it seemed like a good deal in comparison with other offers out there. Just thought i'd share it with HUKD being the generous good-natured soul that I am...

I wasn't slating you its just that a large amount of people mistake car hire for car leasing and don't realise they have to pay for all the normal additional costs the same as owning a car but it will never be theirs.

Excellent deal. Hot from me Op.
I would rather ride a real cactus than this ugly thing
Great car good price ..well done
Paid almost exactly the same as this for 18 months on a C1 Flair 1.2 5 door with 6000 miles p.a. so this seems a great deal, it has the same engine so would the Cactus not struggle a bit?, the C1 flies by the way{for a small car}

I've driven the 82 and its pretty gutless, on hills you feel like you want to get out and push......... the 110 is much better, especially considering its quite a light car at only about 1 ton.
After test driving both i decided it wasn't for me though.

Shark grey is the best colour and not ugly. Awesome car to drive
lease deals are ideally for business, they are ususally for the staff to do the run around j
in. it is a cheap lease, but the car does not appeal to me. what were the designers thinking when they designed this.
Hot for the reactive armour alone, we live in uncertain times.
Could buy 2 bikes for that money X)
These are great value

Just make sure you park the lease car at the bottom of the supermarket car park to avoid anyone scratching or denting it with their car doors. Otherwise you will be in for a shock when you hand it back. I know someone who got a huge bill for small dent (car door opened onto his door) plus a few scratches.

I got the shark grey diesel version on an 18 month deal in November. It is a great car. Drives really well. Very comfortable. Averaging 60mpg around town(London) I've always bought new and swapped after 2 years. For me this is the best deal I have ever had in a car notwithstanding that it doesn't belong to me at the end of the lease. I will shop around and hopefully pick up another lease with low upfront cost again. Why own a car? Not for me ever again.
As for all the stupid comments about the cars looks, each to their own but really, some people need to understand that having an opinion isn't the same as being correct. Its an opinion, and like ar**holes, everyone has one.
I'm not a fan of leasing but this is really good value deal. Any car will lose more than 3-4K value in 18 months.
If you don't want the upfront cost there are more options here:

https://www.centralukvehicleleasing.co.uk/vehicle/choose_your_lease/65455/citroen/c4_cactus/12_puretech_82_flair_5dr.html

£16.99 per month ex vat (20.39 with VAT)
Initial Rental £1500.00 plus vat (1800 with VAT)
Contract Length:18 months
Contract Mileage:10000
Maintenance: No


Or

£99.99 (plus vat) initial rental - (£120 with VAT)
10k pa
£99.99 plus vat per month (£120 with vAT)
Contract Length:18 months
Contract Mileage:10000
Maintenance: No

All options amount to about the same money - just depends on your appetite for upfront v's monthly cost.

If you have the up front cost you might be better keeping it in a savings account and paying the £120 per month.
I've no comment on lease vs non lease, and this is quite a good deal but this car, it makes me so angry everytime I see one, it's got to be the most hideous car ever made, please if your going to lease something don't pick this.

Absolute Tosh.
Wots with the door cushions?
National vehicle solution are doing it for the same price. We ordered from them the other day and expect delivery in march.

The car is obviously a bit marmite but the spec is very good, it's cheap and it's different. It'll do for the school run.

I thought that was the point of the plastic door panels - to avoid the dents that would otherwise be left by careless drivers who think my door is there to stop theirs opening too far.

Lease deals like bicycle deals always great value entertainment from the comments. I'll be home from work in 40 minutes then I can sit back with a pizza and beer and enjoy the entertainment for the evening.

Or end up spending far less. I've recently bought my first car, an 02 Focus Estate for £700, first years insurance on it was £784 (no idea why it was so cheap, but hey ho). Tax was another £190 or something, so for £2k I've got a car that runs with no issues as of yet, and has returned 40mpg so far. And I won't need to spend another £2k in two years on another lease.

​Most company's have a fair use policy which are the same throughout the industry which allows for small dents and scratches but anything larger then you will get stung for the repair. Surely one would repair their damaged car even if they owned it?

Yep and you will make a good £100 on the scrappage on your Focus in two years aswell.
Anyone know if it's got decent boot space?
Is it bigger than BMW 3 series?
