Total payable over term £3990.74.

List price for the car is £18.5k.

Parkers values the car at £8k after 2 years and 20,000 miles on the clock - you do the maths.

Reasonable for £166 a month - that doesn't get you a lot of new car going through the PCP route these days.

Another deal that looks far better as a leaser than a new car purchase - shocking depreciation figures you quote via Parkers there, just goes to show how cheap fleet get cars compared to the private punter.

Seems a fair price, no maintenance and tyres included for that price?

Good price & spec, better than those crappy corsa & fiesta deals that seem to get posted all the time

very nice. heat.

Great deal, and heat added (decent motor for once, Ha!).

But seriously, you are being a bit harsh on Hyundai residuals there Karlie. Car has a list price of £18,495, but the current official offer is £16,995.

Parkers then lists the car at £9,810 'part exchange' at 24m/30,000m, so of course 20,000m should be a bit better again.

Still a top deal, a C segment car at this price is awesome.

Love my i20, but earlier this month I had to get the heater matrix replaced which only the dealer could fix as it required the dashboard to be removed. That, new front brakes and replace cracked steering column set me back £1800! Eight months out of their 5 year warranty, 50k miles

Just going off the figures from here: http://parkers.car-costs.co.uk/

Couldn't find figures on WhatCar.

There are a few 64 plate cars on Auto Trader with between 10k-15k miles on the clock selling at £11.5kish. So surely they would have been part exchanged for about £9k? Thus valuing a 2 year old i30 with 20k miles at about £8k?

Terrible cars. Got one once as a courtesy car from Jaguar Land Rover, took it back after 20 mins & swapped it for a half decent car whilst mine was being serviced.

Terrible because you can't see lots of leather and wood? I expect your Jaguar or Land Rover (they don't share dealerships - have you ever been to one?) was probably in for more than a service.

They are amongst the best cars you can get, with styling better than most on the road. Reliability is better than most. I really can't take that 'story' seriously.

Somewhere between £8.5k and £9.5k, most dealership groups aim to give you 85% of their would-be sticker price in p/x. Depends also where your examples are getting sold - the official dealership will always charge top dollar for a car and should (hopefully) give you a better p/x than you'll get at a car supermarket.

Still a lot of money proportionally to lose on buying new. £18.5k car bought for £17k and worth £9.5k - 49% of RRP lost or 44% of what you actually paid for it lost after just 2 years. Some cars won't even lose that at 3 years.

I'd rather lease for £4k than lose £7.5k if I were wanting one of these.

I'd save about £55 a month on fuel efficiency, £15 a month on tax, almost £5 a month on MOT cost (just the MOT itself, not whatever I may need to fix).

There you go, half the monthly cost of the car is paid for. No doubt we'll get the 'buy a banger' brigade commenting soon though.

Take care with the fuel savings - all new cars with stop start tech massively overstate mpg as the EU test cycle is very far removed from real life driving. Expect to get 70% of what is stated on the combined cycle on a journey shorter than 15 miles unless you drive like a nun. This "75mpg" car will likely see you getting 50-55mpg when not on a long run. Understating CO2 and overstating mpg compared to reality does get you a cheap tax disc though.

I haven't got strong opinions on the deal either way so next axe to grind but can't help thinking that if you drive a recent Jag or Land Rover then you were always going to be disappointed with this. Probably not a terrible car-just a poor substitute for a luxury car.

£15,368 on drivethedeal and potentially even cheaper elsewhere. Selling privately would give a better deal. I'd say total loss over 2 years is closer to the £5k mark but that's still more than this deal.

It's not only about reliability, if you value power, refinement, comfort and decent residuals (ok, not so much residuals with a Jag as say an Audi) then you will be looking further afield than Hyundai's best.

Basic cars have less (especially electrics and electronics) to go wrong on them - doesn't make them particularly attractive to drive to the majority. Many reliability surveys are littered with very basic superminis towards the top of the table, even cars like the Vauxhall Agila and Citroen C2, from marques most would consider to have poor reliability.

Sound advice there - test drive any car you may wish to buy or lease, you could be stuck with it a long time. No single car will suit everyone.

There you go folks, one of the World's largest corporations (who could literally buy and sell JLR) have managed a 3/10 with their best effort.

They're that terrible, that the boss of BMW's 'M' division has recently left BMW to go and work there;

http://www.bmwblog.com/2014/12/22/bmw-m-vp-engineering-albert-biermann-goes-hyundai/

p.s. watch out Europe, they were already doing a pretty good job before this dude jumped on board.

Fantastic car. Just sold mine, and only sold it as I got the chance to get a c class. Great drive, really pokey, and very practical. A scorching deal at this price.

The residuals are genuinely terrible, I lost 40% of the value on mine in only 18 months (not from brand new) so the packers figures above actually ring true. A car is only worth what you can get for it. As such, as I lost 4 grand in 18 months on a second hand less than this for 2 years brand new is a no brainier!

I will say though that no way will you get close to 75 mpg...mine was averaging about 52 on none motorway runs. The stop start is really poor on this car as well. Otherwise very difficult to fault.

You are normally looking to bash the German marques, yet seem proud you're getting a BMW high-flier. Presumably he's gone there to make Hyundai's less reliable. X)

The Koreans do need to add some serious bhp to their range topping efforts to appeal to a wider audience with their range. I'm sure he's had a bumper pay rise to go work there. I'm sure if someone was looking to double my wage (which in his case would've already been obscene) i'd be considering jumping ship too.

All the EU6 compliant cars with start-stop do this, you can get closer to the official figures with petrols than diesels as they're much quicker to warm up. My Golf R will do 80% of the official combined figure with a 20 mile commute and a few heavy footed blasts. My GTD before it was more like 70% of the combined figure, but got much better on long motorway runs. Best done on the "67mpg" GTD was 59mpg maintaining 80mph and aircon on. Around the doors (<15 miles) it was more like 48-50mpg.

You'd be surprised that some do order cars without a test drive, or at least an extended test drive - having a quick drive around the block doesn't give you a great feel for how you will feel about driving that car every day. Ideally you'll want a test drive that exceeds your commute.

A mate of mine ordered a Mazda MPS and was wowed by the acceleration on his brief test drive but it is a dog as a motorway miler, and he drives 17k miles a year.

Bottom line is you won't be able to run this car, brand new for 2 years at a lower cost than this deal. Gotta be hot for that, whether you'd drive this car or not.

I have been driving these as company hire cars for a while now, and you get 60 mpg average with mixed driving, which is not too bad, the start stop thing gets turned off when I remember X)
