Peugeot 308 2.0 BlueHDi 150 GT Line Personal Lease £193 x 23+3 £5222 nationwidevehiclecontracts

Found 9th May 2016
Personal Lease deal and although not I'm a fan of Peugeots (or French brands in general) this seemed like a decent deal. Not often you get a car than can claim to do +60mpg (72 mpg Combined on this one) whilst rolling on 18s and 0-60 in less than 9 seconds. All for around £200pm
Fair bit of kit with this car too.

The deal...
23 months at £194
upfront payment of £580
processing fee of £180

it's 8k miles pa not sure what excess charge for miles would be but if your going to do 20k miles over the term then you better hope those tyres last as it might cost you a bit to replace at that size.

impressive for the size of engine but not quite comparable to the HDi
less torque
not as good fuel economy
slightly higher CO2 (although in same VED band)

But you won't get 61mpg out of the petrol either. If you are using the motorway more than city the diesel will probably be better but in the city I would probably choose the petrol.

45.3 true mpg for the Puretech vs the 47.5 true mpg for the diesel. I know what I would have...

Does anyone care about that? VW drivers don't...

correct, hence I refer to claimed MPG.

Pointless ever posting "claims"

Looks quite a lot like an Audi A3, but not as nice. Shame it looks so bland.

I mean if Citroen can produce modern looking cars with their DS range and Renault with the Clio/Captur/Kadgar, why can't Pug.

It does have a lot of kit (cruise control is about the only thing it doesn't seem to have, unless it's just not stated).

Positives;
Hill start, Auto everything, LED everything, NCAP 5*, decent power, not bad economy, colour sat nav.

Negatives;
Looks like a dog :-(
Average cost per month is £217.58 when you add in the upfront cost to give you a monthly equivalent.
Doesn't seem like a great deal to me unless you want that particular car. Midsize family cars are nearer to £150/£170 PM and smaller cars like the C1 for a about £120 a month on the various HUKD deals on leases over the last few months.

Unless there's a misprice and people got a lucky, I've not seen a deal for a mid size family car with average monthly payment at £170

Claimed MPG is the MPG you could achieve in ideal conditions, I've always managed to get better MPG than claimed in any car when things go right. Common sense will tell you that you are not going to get as good MPG if you head into heavy stop start traffic uphill with a cold engine. If car A claims 75MPG in ideal conditions vs car B that claims 55MPG, then generally you will find that Car A will usually return better MPG than car B in most situations.
There is little point in trying to measure "real-world" consumption figures, because everybody has different real-worlds. Especially those people who can't drive properly, we've all seen them constantly on the brakes, these are the first to moan about "claimed MPG". I can't understand why people moan about claimed MPG, do people seriously expect a deterministic measurement?

And you can sustain that higher mpg indefinitely? I doubt it...

It's the major fault with the compulsory EC Fuel and Emissions
Certification system. By EC law, manufacturers cannot publicise any other figures than those achieved in the certification tests. Obviously manufacturers optimise their cars to achieve the best possible results in the tests. There is no compulsion on them to ensure the cars will match these figures in real life.

You will get better economy from a small low power and low torque engine like the 1.2 Puretech 130 I mentioned previously, running it on Shell V-Power because that is what all current engines are optimised on and the torque enhancement has a greater effect on a low torque engine enabling shorter shifting and less time in low gears.
