Equivalent to £94 per month.

Don't think I've seen a sub-£95 per month lease deal with a decent amount of mileage for this spec.

£11,345 list price.

1st monthly installment - £260.94.
23 monthly payments of £86.98.
No admin fee.

Total payable over term £2261.48.

8000 miles no?

Anyone know on this deal if you have to pay for servicing or tax?

Yep, PA
You can go to 10,000 PA but then it is a 36 M lease and it's £3480.80

No VED to pay.

You'll have to service the car - might be able to get away with just the one service - can be done for about £100.

Looks like a very hot deal to me.

16k miles is a little misleading in the title

not bad for a runabout

Everything but Where?8)

Should it say 2 x 12 months instead of 24 months too? (_;)

No - but if you see mileage on a car lease thread it generally means PA.

Hot deal but I would need more than 8k per year.

Title has been edited to reflect this. Although I did write 24 month lease - 16,000 miles which, to me, is pretty clear.

Air Con is an option

I believe that's an error on the Contract Hire and Leasing website.

According to the Citroen car configurator, it is standard on the 'Feel' model. The 'Touch' model does not have air con as standard.

This is a good deal. If you can get deals like this every 2 years it's beats buying in my opinion as long as you are a low milage user off course

V hot from me. On holiday so can't add Amy useful c&p from elsewhere but have heat for now!

Do these companies offer any kind of part exchange on older cars as part of the financing agreement? Or better off selling privately and putting money towards the payments?

Also, I can't see an option to do 10,000 miles PA, but only 24 months, not possible? Or only negotiable by contacting them?

I'm new to the idea of leasing but looking to replace an old Citroen Saxo with only 70,000 miles on the clock.

Not 100% sold on the design of this car, but I think the white with charcoal top looks quite smart. Do you generally get colour options or whatever they've got?

Average annual mileage is 8,000 miles.

If you go above the allowance, then you'll pay a mileage excess fee - typically between 5-10p per mile. Sometimes, it works out cheaper to do it this way, rather than opt for the 10k allowance.

Better to sell your car privately as you'll get more money. If you part-exchange then the dealer tends to offer a lower price, so that they can sell on to make a profit.

Looks like this C1 deal is a stock vehicle, so it'll be whatever colours they have in.

Anyone go e for this if so how is the process and lead time ?

These deals seem to be to be true as surely the depreciation the car will suffer is greater than £2,200 the customer pays out?

But the lease company pays nowhere near the rrp on the car in the first place. Many of these deals are dealer driven in order to get decent 2nd hand models on the forecourt in 2 years' time.

By hideous pseudo-member.

Would make a great shopping trolley car at this price.

Can anyone who has ever leased before please answer a few questions for me. Is there any catches, are they going to crucify you in costs when you hand it back and it has light scratches. what happens if someone smashes into you and writes it off, would it all be covered by insurance? I think this is a good deal but I'm a little sceptical about driving something I don't own

Fair wear and tear is allowed. Some stone chips on the bonnet, a light scuff on a alloy, a small scratch etc. are acceptable.

See here for more information and pictures: http://www.knowlesfleet.co.uk/Documents/FWT/lexFWT.pdf

As long as you have comprehensive insurance, then you're covered just like you would be if you owned the car.

I've not received my lease car yet (I signed up to get the 208 GTI deal from here 6 weeks ago) but I can try and shed some light. The lease company should allow fair wear and tear which is apparently more lenient than you would think. Obviously you have to look after them well, but if you're planning on leasing a brand new car you most likely will.

Regarding crashing and writing the thing off, you will need GAP insurance for a lease car which will cover the defecit between what you would owe the leasing company and what your insurance company will pay out. For a car of this value, £5000 should be enough and will only put you back ~£5 a month (£60 per year).

Fully comp insurance isn't enough with lease cars. You need GAP insurance too.

You don't need it - but it's advisable.

And for a car like this, £5k cover is too much. £2k should be more than enough.

​Fully Comp should pay the required amount - don't get sucked in to Gap Insurance this is simply an insurance policy on an insurance policy - in the event you need to make a claim insist the insurance company pay the going rate for the write off - simples!

Yeah, my bad, you're right for the cover value. I was advised £5k with the 208 deal but that had a value of £21k.

Another lease deal for a horrid French car. They are rubbish.

Cheap as chips. You'll probably spend £2000 trying to buy, run and maintain a crappy old corsa or golf over 2 years anyway.
French cars seem to have come a long way, I've had my cactus 5 months and it hasn't blown up yet. And this is a toyota with a citroen badge so will be even better.
