My mum is literally just finishing up signing up for this now at the dealership and I think it is an excellent offer if you do 5,000 miles a year and want a no thrills, cheap to run and maintain new car.

This is for the 1.0 MPI SE with 60bhp, which has an average of 62mpg. Obviously not the fastest car so not great if you do lots of motorway miles, but great for around town.

Quite rare to get a new car like this for under £100 a month now - this is not a lease either this is a PCP deal. The £99 per month price is for 42 months. The SE spec includes:

Standard Equipment on the SE includes:
-14" Aries steel wheels
- Daytime running lights
- Radio with CD, MP3, AUX-IN (2 speakers)
- Manual air-conditioning
- Electric front windows
- Remote central door locking (with SAFE system)

You can have the car in white for £140 more or metallic paint is £500.

I can see the same deal was posted almost 2 years ago on here and got pretty hot. So to have the same low price 2 years on is impressive. The best bit is that you do not pay Skoda one penny for borrowing the £8,073. Zero percent. Zilch. Not even a Finance facility fee or a Optional final payment fee, should you choose to buy the car at the end of the term.

Hopefully a few people can benefit from this deal too. It's not a quick car, it doesn't have loads of gadgets, but in this day and age it is becoming increasingly hard to get into a brand new car with a tiny deposit and payments of under £100.

MRRP ​£9,145
Lookers cash price £8,172
Duration (months) 42
Monthly payments £99
Customer Deposit £99
Total amount of credit £8,073
Finance facility fee £0
Option to purchase fee £0
Optional final payment £3,989
Total amount payable by customer £8,172
Representative APR 0%
Interest rate (fixed) 0%
Mileage restriction per annum 5,000
Excess mileage charge per mile 4.4p

5,000 per year only? What if i drive it in reverse, will that bring the mileage down?

heat for not posting a poisoning diesel
Id say its rubbish too, plenty of 10k mile lease deals on similar cars available plus they aint Skodas lol

Citroen C1
Peugeot 108
Nissan Micra etc

PCP might have an option to buy at the end but does anyone actually do that, if they dont its the same as a lease

Could you link me to this please? I need a 0 deposit car with monthly payments as low as this... I can't find anything else as cheap as this though. Just need a second car with low mileage.

Why do they still manufacture cars with CD players?! I remember when they still made cars with tape players when nobody owned tapes anymore either.

CDs are only good for scaring pigeons off alotments

£400 for a better entertainment system I'd guess
Interesting deals... I've been looking for something like this but in auto transmission but not for anything yet, has anyone else seen anything in this ballpark for a small automatic?

​Odds are of you're doing less than 5k miles a year you probably won't have time to listen music good deal tho!
could 10x better car leased for this money.
Had a Skoda **** as a hire car. So nasty it made me not want to go out by car and made me grateful for having legs.

I feel sorry for the poor souls who have little option but drive these things.

Not bad deal though if it's put in front of you.

I feel sorry for babies who burst into tears because they don't like their hire car.
Someone find me a bad review of a Citigo please from a respected motoring publication?

It's regularly rated above the VW and Seat counterparts and I've had one for 3 years out of choice and wouldn't change it.

It's 2016 people need to get over the Skoda badge, it's a car it moves you from one place to another. They're reliable, affordable and comfortable what else do you need? This is a site for deals not for mushy brained petrol heads who think the faster it goes the better it is.

Why would it matter that most people won't really know it's a VW? I don't buy a car and worry about what people think about it. It's none of my business what people think of my buying decisions, that would be a nightmare if you started worrying about buying something because some one else was judging me. Judge all you like it's none of my business and wouldn't affect me in any way.

heat for not posting a poisoning diesel



Lets all hate on diesels, no one these days wants to take responsibility for their own actions. If we are to believe these so called facts and contemporary science the majority of the problem is around busy, congested cities and main roads. Now if your a non smoker, would you go buy your burger and beer and sit in the smoking room at the pub to eat it? Then be grumpy about being poisoned.... No you would choose to eat away from the smoking room. So do the right thing, don't live in a stinking congested area, move live and work in a suburb or the countryside with clean clear air away from all pollution and stop picking on diesel, all traffic causes deaths.

Don't forget trying to be green is also part of the problem. Those mobile chicanes, ah no cyclists, every time traffic has to queue behind them and each time a vehicle has to slow down and accelerate back up to speed significant exhaust is caused rendering a carbon deficit that nulls all the hard work of the cyclist to be green. Some calculations show on some routes show cyclist cause emission of exhaust to increase equivalent to 7 cars if they were not travelling on said route and that these emmisions cause an increase in deaths also.

So on balance I hope there is something to take from this, next time you see a post for a pedal cycle please remind cyclists of their poisonous emissions caused by traffic velocity change and the cost to all the drivers of the thousands of vehicles each hour having to decelerate and break... its £1000's each day taken from hard working drivers! Its a bit like legal stealing....

Long live diesel....!

Smoking room? Haven't seen one of them for nearly ten years.
Nothing brings out the HUKD snobs and Jasper Carrot jokes like a Skoda deal.
Sorry to break the news but it's not the 1970s any more. Try reading a car magazine (probably not Top Gear though),
I had the seat mii, all the parts are stamped v.a.g. (or somethjng like that)
Look at the door handles and wing mirrors, they are an exact match of the polos
Well after years of Skoda jokes I bought one of these 3 years ago. Excellent. A lot faster than you may think, I always find myself at the end of a long queue of much faster cars creeping along to save petrol. Apart from one puncture it has not let me down in all those years of happy motoring. Not voted "Car of the Year" by mistake!
Who only does 5000 miles a year ? That is the same as classic car insurance where most of the time the car is kept in the Garage !
I'm guessing the milage restrictions don't matter if you pay the final payment?
Proveright

Who only does 5000 miles a year ?



Most people that do a school run and the odd trip to the shops. - 100 miles a week. Ideal as a small second car for most families.
The car itself is so cheap would probably rather drop ~£9k on one of the specced versions from a broker or something. You're not really losing out at all on depreciation compared to this lease. 3 and a half years it would still likely be worth at least ~£4k according to depreciation calculators.

This is a cheap way to buy the car I guess, probably better than finance but it's all a muchness. Lease deals are best when they give you an expensive car you probably couldn't normally afford to buy, that then you don't get lumped with depreciation that probably out weighs the cost of the lease. That's the deal.

This isn't that.
Can get the Fabia for about the same price - states £109 but can haggle it down to £100 a month like I did - howardabraham.com/new…oor

You sound like the young lad on the confused.com advert, are you really 16 and waiting for your provisional?
vulcanproject

A lease doesn't give you a GFV upfront, the lease company may offer to sell the car but there's no guarantee of this.
With PCP there may also be some equity left in the car above the GFV, so you could use it towards the next car or sell it on a make a few quid.
Plus it's interest free, so a cash buyer can keep the majority of the cash and invest it elsewhere.
Major differences, not minor.

Depends on what precisely the conditions of a lease are. Many personal leases will offer to sell you the car, some actually offer you it at cut rates because they clear stock.

End of the day this is a form of lease with restricted mileage and an agreed final value. Technically it's a 'to buy' scheme, but considering it is not mandatory in this case and a large percentage of people choose not to, in practice it's a lease to buy in any other name. Even the money advice service put it under the same category: moneyadviceservice.org.uk/en/…car

But meh. Arguing over technicalities.
