Found 16th Mar 2015
Looks like a good price for the brand new model (v3) Octavia vRS. The estate is available too for deposit of £1700.

16,000 mile allowance over the 2 years with 7.2ppm if you go over or can arrange higher miles by calling.

Deal also includes free metallic paint and road fund licence for two years.

I saw this mentioned on another website and haven't seen it posted here so thought i'd post it in case it's any good to anyone. My first pch deal so apologies if i've got something wrong.

This is a PCH (Personal Contract Hire), so you don't own the car at the end of the 2 years, and there's no option to buy it at the end. 2 years later, and £6000 lighter with nothing to show for it, and a chance of losing your deposit.

6 grand for 2 years driving + petrol - don't try and con people this is for ownership.

Nice car - from the Skoda website it's actually 184ps (so Simpsons info is wrong), so 181bhp - still a nice quick motor with plenty of torque - same engine as the VW GTD equivalent.

Good price for a well rated car. Heat from me, but be prepared for all the trolls!

Don't forget Insurance as well on top of that!

Could this be a viable alternative to Motability ?

£6,000 to hire a car for 2 years?

The 8,000 miles per year mileage limit is ridiculous.

You could buy a used Octavia vRS for £6,000 and still have something left over to use at the end of it.....

ICE COLD.

You could most things USED for much less than new but nice one for pointing it out lol

The thing people forget with these that if you were looking to buy a new car (which you should thank people for so you can have your option of buying used), then you'd no doubt lose 6 grand in depreciation in 2 years and have the hassle of selling it or getting your trousers further removed by trading it in.
For that kind of buyer (and theres plenty who are) then these deals are very attractive.

Clearly many people commenting on this thread do not understand the concept of depreciation. Please show me a new car that doesn't depreciate by thousands each year.

This is a very decent deal.

I'm not sure it's trolling to think that £6000 to own nothing at the end isn't a good deal. I can get around for way less.

It does equal the cost of the depreciation to be fair. If you bought one and sold it after two years you would still be £6k down. But that is calculated off the list price.

I bought a 10reg Octy VRS CR brand new, had it for 4.5 years and did 60k in it. I bought it for £18k (RRP was £24k) and sold it for £10k and probably could have got more (as it sold within 12hours of me listing it).

These deals are only good if you're requiring a brand new car, so it's hot if you must have a brand new car. It's absolutely not if you don't need something brand new though.

But can you get around in a brand new Skoda octavia vrs for two years for less?

That's the point.

certain cars which depreciate slowly makes leasing viable, however a car like this will depreciate loads in the first few years so i would buy one that's a year old and then sell or px as soon as warranty is finished. you will lose a lot less than 6 grand i imagine

Good price if your after something nice and new and you don't mind PCH.

Heat added.

I don't think 6000 pounds loss over 2 years is COLD. There are not many cars of this specification you can buy new and loose less than that over 2 years of depreciation. Lots loose that in a year of ownership.
I bought my qasqai used and have still lost around 2k over the past year of depreciation. (and these are considered good in terms of depreciation rate)

It's a great car, I'm on my second VRS TDi but I'm voting cold as I have the 2014 VRS Estate and got it on a 2 year deal @ £200+VAT per month with 3 months up front, 10k per year allowance and free servicing.

Deposit - £720 vs £1700
Mileage - 10k vs 8k
Free servicing vs not free servicing (OK I'm assuming since it's not mentioned that it's not included)
Total cost for my lease £6240 vs £7220 (based on the same VRS Estate)

If you want to drive a brand new car, then leasing is the way forward. It costs a similar amount over 2 - 4 years to hire the car as the amount it would depreciate during the same time. Except you don't need to find a £15K - £20K deposit. If you have other high cost loans, i.e. credit cards etc., then using the deposit money to clear those balances will save you an awful lot of money on interest charges as well, making the lease option even more attractive...
Work out the total cost of ownership of any new car (which include) depreciation and you will be surprised.
Did the figures myself for a 3 year old VW Tiguan against a NEW Tiguan and the total cost of ownership was similar.
With a new car as well, you would expect to pay a lot less in servicing, replacing tyres, brakes etc.

Isn't the opposite that is true. I.e. you really want a car but its depreciation rate is very high, lets say its a £18,000 car that reduces by £6,000 over 2 years but the lease is only £4,000 then you clearly benefit from the lease if you intend to sell anyway after 2 years. The lower the depreciation the less viable/beneficial leasing is depending on the price of course.

This deal won't cost a penny in petrol.

Simpsons skoda? I suppose you do have to be a crazy character to drive one of these

So many ignorant people use this website and as soon as there is a premium deal which doesn't involve a tin of beans they start copying and pasting the same rubbish over and over.

One guy is comparing this deal to an 8 year old Octavia VRS which could possibly throw up bills.

A number of people vote cold because you don't own it. Why would you want to own it and pay the depreciation yourself? This costs you a set amount every month, you don't need to pay tax and other than potentially servicing and some new tyres, that's how much you'll have to pay unless you don't look after it.

Guess what people, some people are happy to pay a premium for a new car, to drive around in something nice and has the latest technology. You can't compare that to an 8 year old example.

6k wasted in 2 years. That pays 14 years council tax for me.
I'd rather buy a 10reg for that much

I suppose it's evens that you'll get two years out of this before the DPF or the DMF or something else explodes.

If it has tits and/or tyres,if it flies, f...ks, or floats then hiring it usually works out cheaper in the long run.Its a good deal if you want to drive rather than own a new car.

looool at anyone even considering this deal.. to spend 6grand on skoda which you will get to use for 2years.

With all factors I don't see a hot deal in my eyes.

£6,077 to drive a diseasel Skoda for two years.

Colder than a snowman’s cold bits on a particularly cold day at the North Pole.

Atleast someone knows what they are on about on here.

Good deal. Some people can't see that you are putting down only £1500 deposit and £199 per month for a £20k plus car. £6k and nothing to show for it........ 2 years of motoring is not nothing.

Have a look at cost to get a similar deal on a Golf GTD. It would be double deposit and £250-£300 per month.

I bought the old shape VRS. £8k deposit and £300 per month for 3 years, paid my last instalment last week. But in truth - I wish I would have kept my deposit and gone PCH. Probably lost £6k on it at least anyway, except I don't have the £8k I had and the monthly payment was higher.

Too many clowns here are unable to differentiate between the value of a 'hot deal' and their own ability to afford the purchase. There's no point wasting your breath.

I got an Audi TT on mobility for similar. The RS seats are great for my bad back.

8000 miles a year though is pretty useless.

What are you going to do with that? Drive to the shops and back?

ah, the cant afford to spend six grand crowd are out again in force i see.
hot deal if you have some spare cash to run about in a new shiny motor.
no doubt cold if your normal hot deal is a misprice on some tescos frozen pizza

I CAN live in a cardboard box if I want.

I CAN choose to live on Tesco blue and white stripe super noodles for the rest of my days.

I COULD even refuse to wipe after dropping the kids off.

But do I? With the exception of 3 from time to time, no.

Some people like to enjoy the finer things in life, and for those who class a new car as a finer thing, then there aren't many cheaper ways to drive one than deals like this.

That's entirely your choice, but it doesn't affect whether this is a good deal for a brand new VRS.
