Take the finance, sign the deal and then use your legal right of withdrawal (within 14 days of signing the agreement) and request a settlement figure from the loan provider. You will keep all dealer & manufacturer discounts and no fees ( other than a few pounds in interest) can be applied to your loan. I have done this countless times for family members and you can save £££'s. The manufacturer may not like it but the law is on your side. You may even get a service package thrown in for taking finance which you will retain on loan settlement. Happy to guide you through it if required but very straightforward.
If you exercise your right of withdrawal within 14 days of signing the finance agreement, there will be zero charges and you keep all discounts.

seems a good deal
Have some heat. I‘m going to see if I can end my Mazda3 PCP early.
I have this on lease.
main concerns are lack of power and the ride is uncomfortably soft. you bounce around like you’re on a boat

having said that you get a lot of car for your money
I love mine, some of the driver assists are at the level of a car in a much higher price bracket. I wish I'd not got the auto though, waiting a few moments once you hit the accelerator to move makes for some hairy moments at roundabouts. Although I think that's an issue for a lot of auto cars not just Hyundai.

I have 19" wheels and the ride is quite comfortable, I've not noticed any bounce at all. Drove over 400 miles in a day and could have done more.
Is description of around £16k to buy outright correct? As the website mentions guaranteed future value of £7k plus, would this also need to be paid if finance was paid or does paying all off for circa £16i at outset mean car is yours and do with it what you want (no mileage limit) etc?
Great MPG lol

True 40 MPG “COMBINED” I can assure you will have around 28 MPG if you drive locally in town

Got it for the wife from vertu for £177 a month on PCH 3+35. Power is very lacking but you can cope, it's only used for little trips and a short commute, on a long run it's ok once you're at 70 on the motorway and will nudge to 80 if needed without much trouble. I actually think the ride is fine and not bouncy, and I usually drive my Volvo S90 R-design that now feels like I'm sat on the floor

Real mpg on this is around 33mpg. Terrible. I checked on honest John website.
Is this a similar size to a qashqai?

You're right, I've just made the switch to a mercedes a class auto and i love it but it is a lot different to a manual at roundabouts. In fact, when the engine cuts out when sitting at a standstill you have to wait for the engine to start back up then for the gears to engage before you pull off. It takes some getting used to but it's not major

It's unlikely to be the auto - more likely the turbo lag which, as you say, is common to many vehicles. In risky situation there is a technique of applying some welly while the brake is still on so the turbo will spool up in good time.

I'd take a guess at stop/start, it works very well with autos to save fuel. However not great to pull away sharpish. I've set mine to only work in eco mode.
I had one of these as a rental recently and the lack of power was really noticeable when carrying five people. Struggled getting up to 70 on the motorway.

Its b/c its a dual clutch transmission; its really an automated manual clutch rather then automatic gearbox. Hyundai ones are particularly poor, some of the videos uploaded from US drivers are quite scary!

Most manufactures have begun moving back to more efficient and quicker torque converters and CVT gearboxes.

Its the dual clutch trans. delay in getting biting point under duress of hard gas from a stop. Its a well known issue on DCT gearboxes and in with Hyundais effort in particular geting a lot of attention on youtube, combined with the SS its a nightmare or worse!

I was surprised too... I’ve just traded in my 12-reg Ford Focus estate (52mpg) for an 18-reg Ford Kuga and I’m currently only on 41.5mpg. Thankfully I only do around 7k mileage per year so the hit financially is only minimal... but it’s still frustrating! Tempted to get one of those engine chip retuning thingumies as long as it doesn’t speed up wear & tear on the engine!

It's the bigger wheels that balances out the bounce. Cars which don't bounce around as much (e. G. VW) with big wheels, it becomes a firm ride.
If that`s 15K for a 69 plate, what can i get for 7.5k? Looking for something similar to a qashqai with much better mpg and a little bit more power. My Qashqai is 1.6 and I feel it is a bit underpowered.

Diesel Kia Sportage (old shape) , Honda CRV. This shape Tucson would be atleast £9k for a diesel
Mrs has the 68 plate Kia Sportage variant of this. 90% is town driving, stop/start gets 36mpg according to the on board computer for the last year

Lot car for the money, with plenty of gadgets.

I think you will struggle if you want a SUV with a petrol engine with really good MPG. They do a 1.2 (turbo) Qashqai which would probably feel a little quicker and get slightly better mpg

Feeling the pain a bit too. I went from my Mondeo (51mpg) to Sportage (42mpg) but they are bigger heavier cars and not as aerodynamic as hatchbacks so it's to be expected. Its the trade off for the better view and extra room

It’s quite a shock to the system... I’ve actually changed the screen settings so I don’t see the MPG as it makes me sad!! I had originally planned to buy a bmw estate with far better MPG but was put off by reports of unreliability & service costs. Swings & roundabouts I guess, what I’ve saved by buying a cheaper (more reliable?) car I’ll lose on fuel costs.

have a look at the suzuki vitara- i got a 1.6 petrol but i believe they do it now in a 1.0 boosterjet engine which is very quick
i get mid 40's but i think the newer engine is more efficient.

the mid range spec comes with sat nav, andriod auto ,air con etc
I believe it has 7 inch display and no sat nav on this model, you need to go with SE NAV for the 8 inch display and integrated Satnav

You're correct (have corrected the description above). However it does have android auto and apple car play, so you can use your phone as a sat nav on the integrated display.
I have one of these and had it brand new last year and i love it. I travel to my daughter who lives over 250 miles away and its a very hilly place but i would not say it has ever struggled to get up steep hills or anywhere else. I have arthritis everywhere and this has been the most comfortable car i have ever had. Its easy for me to get in and out of. Its a lot of car for the price and its like having a more expensive car. The fuel usage i was pleased to see it does not use as much as you would think it would. Overall its an excellent car and would certainly reccomend it.

So your Kuga is about 20pct heavier than your mk 3 focus.....and the fuel economy is about 20pct higher. What part of that is surprising?
