6+35 months. So £951.34 upfront followed by 35 months at £158.56.

Could someone please direct me to place where i can read some smart/inteligent articles about advantages (if any exist) of personal lease vs. buying 3-4 yo car? As far as I can see now, it's like 50% price of a new one. Don't tell me it will loose half of its value within 3 years. Isn't better to buy as new (monthly payments) and then sell it to get a next one?



A very similar situation to myself a year ago, always bought a car 18-24mths old using some kind of loan etc, keep car 4-5 years and then start again, the last time I did this was a 14mth old Audi A3, paid £15.5k (New £22k), kept it for 5 years and completed 60k miles got £6k for it privately, so it cost me inc interest on the loan close to £11k over the 5 years of ownership in depreciation, and on top of this over the 5 years I had annual routine servicing (Especially first 2 years whilst still under warranty), Fitted a New Battery, Brake discs/pads, Timing Belt change, MOT after 2 years, New tyres all round x 2, Annual Tax, Plus almost £1200 in ad hoc repairs that were needed, i.e New rear shock, sensor for electric wipers, Tracking twice.

Maybe I held on to the car too long, but when you add up the cost of 5 years ownership and the fact you then have to sell or part ex, the car gets older, no warranty I decided after seeing the deals on here to tryout leasing as like yourself I struggled initially to see the appeal of renting a car, it was only when I did the above calculation I started to compare deals and found a Skoda lease over 2 years, the main dealer matched the deal and I got a 24 month contract with no deposit and £165 per month, taxed annually and full warranty for the duration with no MOT to worry about, plus everything is new so if I look after it the tyres should last along with brake pads etc, just the 1 service at around 17k miles at a cost of £245.

The total lease inc the service is just over £4k over the 24 mths, and that's on a vehicle with an OTR price of almost £23k, its a no brainer for me personally and I quite look forward to another new car in 14 mths time, and even though its a lease I have spoken with Skoda and there is an option at the end to purchase if it goes into someone else name, currently 2 year old models are on main dealer forecourts for £14k with 16-20k miles on them, so by my calculations I should get an offer of around £11k next year trade if I want to buy, if I go for that option I have a car I have owed from new for around £15k all in, that would be over 30% less than the OTR price had I bought it outright from day 1.

"Stonic", now that is one of the worst names for a car I've heard for a while! It sounds a bit medical. Looks a fair deal though, and Kias are decent enough cars.

Extraordinary to think a team of marketing experts have been paid a fortune to come up with that.

Seems like a good deal. Kias are nice cars and they back up their products with a 7 year 100K mile warranty - way longer than the majority if not all other manufacturers. Notable that the so called premium brands provide a lot less less.

Sounds like some sort of bottom cleansing routine...
Good price though.
I would suggest you make clear the deposit cost in the headline, or add it into the monthly.

£180 / mth true comparable cost.

Nice looking thing, Kia are coming up with some bold designs these days!!

I agree with you, according to the website the name is derived from the words "speedy" and "tonic".

They aren't always English speakers so routinely come up with stupid names

If you're into the car leasing thing then I think it's a good deal, less than £6 a day for a brand new car is pretty nice! I personally wouldn't lease a car,but for those that do it sounds pretty good!

It's also a combination of 'stupid' and 'catatonic'.
Pick your own version.

There have been some worse ones than that the Allegro meaning fast quick and bright the car was none of them.

Drove one of these yesterday. It was the full bells and whistles version- parking cameras, keyless ignition, blindspot sensors, the works. Really odd to see all that tech in a brand that's seen as "value". Even the diesel I drove seemed to have enough grunt, so the turbo charged 3 cylinder petrol that's got an extra 20 or so BHP is probably pretty good.

Regardless of name. Thats a decent deal

But I think Allegro was a good enough name for a car, just a bit ironic on a car that was slow and rusty. Whereas Stonic is just a rubbish name.

1p more expensive a month if you choose 3 + 35 for those that want to reduce the deposit

Not too impressed by the top speed.32307850-QxhyF.jpg

theaa.com/car…ion

Most cars lose a huge amount of value in their first three years, 50% is not uncommon.

By leasing instead of buying you do not have a large amount of capital tied up in the vehicle and don't have to worry about selling it at the end of the term.

Often lease deals are better than depreciation off of the RRP where dealers have quotas to meet or cars in stock that are hard to shift to buyers (for example less desirable models/specs or cars that were built just prior to a facelift).

As for advantages versus buying a 3-4 year old car, you have a full manufacturers warranty, you're pretty much guaranteed no repair costs and much less likely to break down (reliability is important to a lot of people traveling for work).

Total price: £6,500.94
Lease length: 36 mths
Cost per mth: ~ £180

I think it is a very good deal.....Thanks OP

I believe those who normally drive ~ 10K mi/year lease makes a lot of sense.....We are low mileage drivers, usually commute by train and only drive around town or the odd trip. Our 5-year old Kia Ceed has 18,000mi on the clock (bought approved Kia used 1-year with 1,050mi; therefore our avg is less than 4,500mi/year). Still listing pros and cons and trying to do the maths to find out whether leasing would be good for us....

I am curious. Did you pay for this 1yo C'eed 20% value less then new? What Poolius wrote and what is under theaa.com link make some sense, but as I thought, it doesn't explain everything. I am not worry about reliability, I am traveling with my 20 year old Mitsubishi Carisma across half Europe few times per year, no problems. Golden tip is to fix every little problem asap before it will cause bigger and more expensive ones.
Anyway, what makes me worried in lease is the expenses after contract. What if during those 3-4 years some blind fool smash my door/mirror etc. on Tesco car park, and obviously he will run away? I don't have to fix my 5 year old car if I don't want to, I don't have to sell it. But leased one I have to am I? Or they will probably just send me a bill for a repairs (+50% price of any cheap car garage around the corner, right? ). Is it working like that or am I wrong? Wish to be wrong...really ;]

You just stick the entire cost of £6,500 over the rental period of 36 mths. It's the easiest way to compare lease deals which is why people get antsy when it's not included as a reference point.

If you are happy with a 3 year old car or older, then leasing will generally have no attraction for you. If however, you are considering buying a new car, then leasing may have something to offer you because it takes away some of the headaches of owning a car.

There are exceptions to everything however, and it is entirely possible to find a lease deal on a car that a garage has as result of a cancelled order, or of stock that they just need to shift, that is comparable to buying a 2 or 3 year old car. You don't get to spec these the way you want as you have to accept what is offered, but there can be some very significant savings vs normal lease deals.

Thank you all. That helped me understand why anyone even consider lease. I am just get used to having my own car, Being able to mod it, change something, add something, drill some holes here and there. I am renting a flat, I don't think I could bare more headache about keeping something in perfect condition.

Another thing not mentioned by others is, about the 3-4 year time you're looking at tyres, larger servicings, things are starting to wear and need replacing, wiper blades, exhausts, etc. Most people forget this is an ongoing cost which you don't suffer from with a new car on lease.

what segment size does this car sit in? Nearest mass car comparison for size? Not sure i've seen one on the road

1.4-litre petrol with 100hp and 133Nm of torque, enabling an amble from 0-62mph in a leisurely 12.2 seconds. Top speed is 107mph.

Compact SUV similar to the Juke, Captur, 2008 etc

Nice car Price way to high based on 24 months (6+23 ) 8,000 mpa £1,034.86 £172.48 (Inc VAT) that £5001 paid for a £16,295 car being 30.7%. I would need this ratio to be below 25% and closer to 20%.

People like to quote this warranty but realistically the term 7 year warranty is a little misleading because most stuff is actually only covered for 3 years. Then the rest is covered for 7 years. And obviously it would only be down to faults rather than if it was wear and tear or just plain misuse.

51mpg combined hmm. so that makes it around 35mpg in real life. whereas the diesel is 67mpg combined prob more like 55+. that would suit me better personally but it will prob cost more to lease

My wife has a Sportage, its coming up to 6 years old, never been an issue with warranty work once they approve the pictures the dealer send to head office, we have had 2 sets of alloys replaced @ year 2 and 4, EGR valve replaced last year and a few other bits and pieces picked up during routine servicing / MOT, wear and tear is not covered as expected and yet to find any warranty that would cover this unless you pay for it, for example we needed the handbrake cable adjusted as the brake was sticking, they said it would not be covered unless a manufacturing defect was identified.

The only thing to be aware of its 7 years or 100k miles whichever comes first, ours has 85k miles at the moment so fingers crossed we will see the 7 years before the mileage
