Ugly as hell IMO, but that's a decent price.

Seems a good deal, but a 2 month wait for the car on a 12 month contract, might be a problem for people in the market for a shortish contract.

tempted. never bought a contract before but might budge now

I lease a Juke and I am over the miles, the amount I would pay I could get this for a year and bring my Juke back in line with my mileage agreement.
Tempted and I do like the Catus too!

Tempted and voted hot Just need to sell my own car and out the money in the bank before mot and 4 new tyre's

Juke and Cactus? You clearly have an attraction to more "wacky" car design. X)

I know and I said for years before that I would never drive a Juke but the deal was just too good to pass. Quite a good drive to be honest.

Not a fan but good price for a years cheap motoring in a decent spec

Those real world mpg figures are impressive. I drive a 7yr old car that returns 30mpg so this would halve my cost. 10000/30/2=167x£5

£835 cheaper to drive before costs of servicing, taxing, mot, maintenance of my car etc

This does appear to offer me a way to drive a brand new car at effectively no further cost than my current outgoings. Voted very hot.

This car should be banned from sale purely for making my eyes hurt!!!

Agreed, I pay £180 a year on car tax. That's more than one months payment covered.

I feel so sad that some people are unable to enjoy the sight of cars like this on the road.

So many cars are designed to be inoffensive and middle of the road. Journeys would be rather more dull if everybody followed that 'sensible' path.

It's funny, when I first saw it on the road I was thinking 'wtf' did a blind person design that? However, the more I see it I think it's nice to see something different on the road. Good on Citroen, I wouldn't necessarily buy one - but leasing one with the lower risk etc. I certainly would.

Does anyone know what the mileage costs are if you go over the limit? Does it vary car to car etc.

Picked one of these up a few weeks ago on the previous deal posted on here, roughly £900 upfront and £78 per month for 12 months. Great car. Not too many around. Agree its a bit of a "marmite" car, but we really like it. Very economical. Comfortable for a family of four/five and I'm 6ft3". No Tax/MOT, insurance reasonable average 68 mpg so far on the 1.6 diesel city driving.
We got it ours in all black

i love the outside of this! inside is typical french naff though

Awful AWFUL AWFUL car. I couldnt drive a Citroen or Peugeot again if i was paid to do so. However that is a BARGAIN for somebody who likes it, and is happy with those cars. And ill admit the black one "Gheyhoe" posted a pic of is LESS ugly. Almost ok without that rubbish on the doors.
Hot deal either way!

Found the answer. 8p + vat per mile over the limit.

We were gonna go with this deal but couldn't wait the 8 weeks for delivery as we needed something asap, hot deal tho!

I have applied but not sure. They wanted my bank details, income straight away on a web based form and submitted and got no confirmation e mail.

Cold, you can get the same deal from your local dealer!! I picked one up on Saturday

I want whatever you're drinking!

Had the petrol one of these for a hire car recently, good nippy engine but the car felt awful inside. Touch screen interface which was pretty fiddly over conventional controls. Gear lever felt pretty cheap and slack as well. If it wasn't for the styling it would have been ok.

Why did you go for the same deal then if you think it's cold?

Cause going to your local dealer avoids the expensive admin fee from the broker.

1.2 turbo is the much better engine, even manages a superb ride on the larger flair alloys. Really good car, critics love it in manual 1.2T form.

My local dealer laughed when I asked if they could get near this price. This is by far the cheapest I've seen it advertised on a 12 month contract. If your deal was for the Flair model then you've got yourself a bargain.

I've just tried my local dealer. He didn't laugh when I told him the price so fingers crossed!

I actually quite like then when I've seen them in the flesh - funky, if not pretty.

good for this price

Yes, I question that as well. For someone who is quite active on the forum you would of thought they would have shared the deal if it was that good...

I have looked at this when it was previously posted as v4b deal on 18 months contract for £99.
I wasn't sure about the design but once I saw it in dealers in bright red with black trim outside and black alloys I kind of liked it. The only thing I definitely didn't like was low ending roof right in the front of my forehead. Feels like driving with the sun flap constantly down. It's apparently because of front passenger air bag being fitted into the roof instead of dashboard. But I'm quite tall 6 foot 1. Wifey didn't complain, but she would touch the roof with her head while checking the front end while parking. So this was a bit odd.
Nearly ordered one at the time, but then I went with Picasso as I need bigger car for the family.
I still think it looks good in red. Definitely standing out design than anything else on the roads.

Does look a great deal but with the processing fee its working out £30/£40 more a month than a C1 on the the recent C1 lease deals that are popping up, I don't need the extra size of the cactus but love the style and would prefer a larger car than the C1 even though I don't need it. hmm. voted hot.
