Surely you just get 12 months, then renew for another 12 but swap to your next vehicle after 2 ?
I'm fairly sure it will be Initial deposit + 13 monthly payments so £154.19/month
Think I'd want something better than a citroen for that money!

Ok you win, pedant!
sure you can get a better car for £150+ amonth
Is there a minimum age limit for this? Also do you have to get insurance separate? Any guidance appreciated

Unsure on minimum age but you do have to arrange own insurance although tax is usually included in the deal...
I'm still yet to be converted to leasing. Yes, I can see the appeal of driving a new car every year or two, also the servicing and maintenance plans that included in some of the deals are a bonus. What stops me going for any of them is the mileage limit. If you do a relatively small amount of miles, then a deal like this would be great, but my mileage fluctuates year-on-year and leasing just doesn't seem to offer the flexibility that owning the car does. There's also the whole "you pay all that and don't actually own it" argument, especially for the more expensive cars. I think I fall more on the side of the ones arguing that, rather than against it. For example, I bought a 09 plate 120d M-sport coupé last December for around £10k. My old car as deposit and a decent rate on a bank loan for the rest and that takes me to around £165pm over 4 years. Over my 12 months of ownership, it hasn't cost me a penny other than insurance and fuel. The car had 34k miles on the clock and has 20k mile service intervals. What's better is the fact that it's already lost a hefty amount in depreciation before I bought it, and I imagine that I'd still get a decent amount back in a few years when I come to sell it.
I've not seen any leasing deals that can get anywhere near this value when leasing. And I'd much rather drive the BMW than a Citröen, any day of the week (after the joy of previous ownership of a Peugeot).
Not hating, just sparking constructive conversation/debate, rather than the usual "lease, cold" comments. I'd be happy to listen to anyone that can sway me towards leasing.

If you are upgrading to another new car after the 2/3yr lease team the mileage isn't as much as an issue compared to if your giving the car back and walking away, in which case they charge you per mile that your over what your contract stated was acceptable per year.
Does it have wifi
I used to buy nice flash cars when I was younger then I got a mortgage, when it came to fitting a new central heating system and combi boiler I had to sell my car.
As a temporary replacement I obtained a £600 second hand Nissan Micra just to get around until I could afford to buy a car that didn't require a brown paper bag over the head to drive.
Four years later I still own it, it still drives like new, it's never let me down absolutely bulletproof, I get 300 + miles out £30 worth of fuel, it costs £15 to service (as I do it myself) I can park it anywhere without having to constantly worry about some clown denting or damaging it.
Just my opinion but to shell out £150 + per month on a car you won't own doesn't seem a bargain to me.
Have to agree with @D9LVE - can't see the appeal of not owning the car, usually having no option to buy at the end of the agreement, and being limited on miles. Most years I'd easily do 10k miles. Leasing is great if you always want a new car and don't want to have the expense of servicing, but I feel the annual cost compared to buying outright doesn't always compare very nicely.
I couldn't give a monkey's about owning or not owning.

What bothers me is fixing the damage after the chavs have opened their car doors into it a few times (or better still, run their key along it) and my wife kerbs the alloys...
Good thread so far. Will check back in the morning.

​I think with leasing you know what your paying for and its the peace of mind that comes with just being able to hand it back. There is no consistency with the second hand car market, there are some gems but also alot of poorly looked after duffs waiting to go wrong. Also for alot of people the variance in cost servicing and upkeep of motors can be a headache.
I’ve just leased a BMW 118i sport and its costing total about £220 a month that should see me do 10000 miles per year. The actual mileage allowance is 5000 per year however excess mileage is 6.4p per mile so £64 per 1000 so I’ve factored that into my calculation. My last car was a Vauxhall Astra 2010 that I bought in 2012 and gave £8000 for I had finance on it at over 4 years at £166 per month and £18 road tax per month. I am now struggling to get £4000 for it so that’s £95 per month depreciation. So in three and half years its cost me £166 + £18 + £95 = £279 per month. There is the argument that the car is almost paid for and thus won’t cost as much but I do get slightly bored of cars and like to change them. And so this is why I went for a lease deal. First one I’ve ever done and will have to see how it goes. But for less per month I’m not driving a second hand Vauxhall but a £20000 BMW, bottom of the BMW range maybe but it’s still a nice car to drive. Also I don’t have to have a stupid argument with a clown of a salesman when I change it just order whatever I choose and it will be delivered to the door. Hope that goes some way to explaining it.

Don't forget to factor in brown paper bag costs, unless you've been using the same bag for the last 4 years.

If you've had the car a full twelve months and not had it MOT'd or Tax'd then id watch out :P both of which are costs that you would add to your monthly to give a better price for comparison, just a thought :P
too dear.
when i read the price I was going to vote hot but someone said works out as £154 . i'l leave it thanks
I'm no fan of Citroens but in fairness I think both them and Peugeot are upping their game big time at the moment. The DSs are the upmarket range and are desirable. And this is a £17.5k list price car so it's no tin can on wheels. It seems like a very good price to me.

It's not right for you if you are happy to buy an old second hand car then leasing will never work you can't compare a new car to an old one you are paying a premium for that new car feel. Like you I am happy with second hand cars at least for a good car like a BMW but I would consider leasing a small cheap fr s I would not want that for longer than say 2 years. I am guessing that you Peugeot was an old car which again is not a fir comparison with a brand new car that you will only have for for 1 or 2 years. I would be interested to see if the people who **** off leasing have credit on their cars as taking credit for a an asset that's value can only down in my book is really dumb.

You're comparing a second hand out of warranty 5 year old car against something brand new...
I have a one year old diesel DS3. Great little car. Went from an A6 which was a bit of a jump but I couldn't be happier. Cheap car to run and actually fun to drive. I also pay a lot more than this to own the car at the end and that included getting nearly 5k off list price. I don't lease but that is cheap as chips for this car.

fonzie2107

​£279 - (£4000 ÷ 48 months) = £195.67



This seems all wrong...you cannot add depreciation on top of the car's value...

The guy paid £8,000 for the car and got £4,000 after four years. This means the car (depreciation) cost was £4,000 over 4 years. If we add the road tax cost of £18 x 48 = £864 this makes the total car owning cost of £4,864 / 48 = £101.33 per month.

While he paid more per month... he got almost half of these payments back at the end of year 4.
Not really going to be that price in reality due to having to change insurance details after the 14 months (most people will change vehicle). May get away with it if you have a nice insurance company though

Can't see many people doing 10k miles in this either so would be interesting to see if there is chance of lowering costs with bringing the miles down.

Seems hot on the whole though!

To the people constantly comparing these lease deals to buying a car 2nd hand...you are comparing 2 completely different products.

You don't go commenting on posts for a new Xbox One with "ah yeah but it's cheaper by £50 if you buy is 2nd hand so cold for me"....(sure you own the Xbox in both scenarios but still 2 different deals that get compared separately)

ps. please don't go comparing new and 2nd hand products of other kind....

Think I'd want something better than a citroen for that money!



Yeah if it was 24 months good deal. But that's too much for 14 months.
2k to have a Citroen for 14 months? Baffled.
I'm leasing at the minute on the back of a great deal of advice and research, I got a good deal on a new Corsa for £135 a month for 15k a year. Second day I had it somebody took a key from one end to the other, had a few quotes you're looking at at about £800 to repair paintwork, the profile of the Corsa alloys combined with some terrible parking means every single one of my alloys is dented or scratched probably going to set me back a further £300, add to that the cost of anything that happens in the meantime and its final service means I'll probably have to fork out another £1.5k in order to return the car in a fit state.

This hidden cost of leasing means I probably won't do it again, it is, granted a lot to do with whether you're the kind of person that can really look after things and has it parked off road at all times, but for me personally I can't guarantee that so I won't do it again.
I can't understand these people who say leasing doesn't make sense- it makes incredible sense if you want a new car. Cheapest car I ever had was a Sorento, I bought for 16k new, kept for 6 years, and sold for 6k (a lot of aggro selling any car). So it cost me only 10k for 6 years, undoubtedly cheap motoring. So if you get the correct car, can pay cash, and keep it for years (or pick up a great second hand car and are happy with that and it doesn't have any problems) great.
However, I have since gone up in the world, and now like Mercedes. My current lease deal is a Mercedes CLS shooting brake. I have it on a 2 year lease, 12k pa miles, road fund duty included. With the deposit I paid, it works out about 4k per year. Now that may seem like a lot, but this is a 50k car to buy brand new so 4k a year to drive around in it is literally a bargain, and it would lose me about 9k a year in depreciation if I bought it. Message- leasing if you are in the market for a new car really makes more sense than buying in many cases unless you are very high mileage driver, and it even surpasses buying a nearly new car in many cases, and you avoid the hassle of having to sell it. If you are happy buying and running a second hand car and keeping it for years, leasing is obviously more expensive, but (for once) the UK isn't rip off island on leasing- I cannot even lease a Merc as cheap in the USA, the land of the lease and the land of the bargain.

But if you had bought that Corsa and wanted to sell it on after 3 years, the cost of these repairs would literally be deducted from its second hand value on sale.
