only £118 a month on 8k
wow! must be the best lease deal we have ever seen on this website! Well done. Anyone in the market for a new car would be mad not to go for this deal

only £118 a month on 8k



So about 4.2p per mile extra for the 10k deal. I don't know how much the excess/depreciation costs charged by this leasing company would be, but 4.2ppm seems quite low, and on the face of it, the 10k deal seems better value.

It's better if you're doing around 8000 or over per year. Personally I do between 6000 and 7000 so the cheaper option is much better. It's only good value if you're going to use the extra.

Depreciation charge,is that an extra payment on top of £125?

I need a new car but know nothing about cars.

No, it's when you take out a deal for say 10k miles per annum, but actually end up doing more miles than that. When you return the vehicle at the end of the lease, the lease company will charge you the excess mileage/depreciation.
I'd advise caution on this, the ecosport is a hateful car with quite poor reviews. It's built in India and aimed squarely at people who want an SUV type car but can't stretch to a Kuga.

Also dont forget to add in the 2 dealrr services so probably about £500 on top of the £3500. Still a good deal but a horrible car. Had one as a hire car and would really advice a test drive because i hated my 3 days with this one.

What was it you hated so much?

It's clearly not a quick or powerful car, but if you aren't used to that or interested in having a quick car - then might it be OK? Horses for courses and all that.

Good price, but the reviews aren't favourable. I guess that's why they're shifting stock.

Not very pretty is it?

Personally i'd say if you need an affordable semi spacious car, thats not over powered and you dont need to race around. This is ideal.
Great price, and good spec (especially for a deisel).
Bright yellow though?
Very good price for the diesel model...the petrol would cost roughly this to me and I'm a Ford employee

You only need 1 service half way through the lease contract if you taking out 2 years lease. Service doesn't have to be with Ford too.
Hmmmm...not sure about this deal. Price seems reasonable but this is a very basic SUV. Poor reviews online. 90bhp for a 2 tonne vehicle = 0-62mph in 14 seconds. Add a driver and 3 passengers then I'm sure you'd be reaching 20 seconds.

List price is £15.8k but can be bought for £13k. Parkers values the car £8.8k after 2 years and 20k miles. So about £4k in depreciation with this lease costing £3.5k. Not a big difference - certainly smaller than I was expecting.
should eco and sport be in the same sentence?

Not pretty... but practical, so will suit some at the right price.

Formula E maybe. BTW no 'a' in sentence.

Good deal if you can live with the looks, but this is one ugly motor, especially the silly spare wheel on the back.

I almost purchased a Vauxhall Insignia a few years back, which was underpowered for the weight of the vehicle. Like you, i don't drive fast and don't need to accelerate hard and so no problem!? Upon driving the vehicle i found that you had to put your foot most of the way to the floor and it would eventually pick-up speed. This meant that you needed to think ahead if you were going to perform any manoeuvre. OK, no great shakes, but it was a change of thinking on how to drive and i didn't feel connected to the vehicle. Any slight gradient and the vehicle would start to slow down and you would be dropping through the gears; engine always felt like it was straining.
The big problem though was that if you were in the outside lane and a filter was coming up, for instance, you would have no ability to accelerate to safely get into position. Thing is, other drivers would be expecting you to do this and so it could all get very messy. As for over-taking, God help you!
Point i am making is that i would think long and hard about buying an under-powered vehiclei.e. under-powered, as opposed to low-power, which is completely different!
By the way, i don't know if this vehicle is under-powered as i haven't looked at the review. I am merely making a general point, which may be relevant to this and other deals.
God awful rushed to market vehicle!

No wonder they are practically giving em away...

Yes, that seems a fair summary. I don't want a fast car, but am used to a minimum level of power. I might be OK with a torquey diesel, but changing gear all the time makes a journey more tiring.

The boot also opens sideways - so you have to be mindful how/where you park when you need access to it.

Interesting insight.
Would you have to tell the insurance company it is a lease car? would it possibly increase the insurance cost?
Indecently you can buy this 2015 model on finance for £129 x24 with a £999 deposit (Inc a £1425 deposit contribution from Ford) plus a final lump of £8293 if you don't want to lease.

You say no it's leased when they askcif you own the car.

No it doesn't, most new cars on the road are leased.

This deal will be for the old (current) model, the dealers are clearing them out for the facelift 2016 model that has done away with the spare wheel.

Ok thanks for your reply. I really need a new car as my X reg Picasso which is costing a lot recently + £250 a year to tax. This car comes with free tax for first year, then £30 for the 2nd year?

The power for the car is fine, 98bhp for a 1300kg vehicle is average. As its a diesel the torque at low revs is more than adequate. Not spoiling for a fight, just sharing knowledge.
