Hello,

Basically with leasing you are trying to beat the depreciation of a new car and selling it on in two years.The general rule is add all the costs (amortised) together and then divide by the value of the car * 100.Less than 25% is good. Less than 20% is excellent.

If you think most cars lose 20% in one year. So the closest to 2 years lease, 10k miles per year the better. Most of the time it's better to pay for less miles and pay the excess mileage charges.

I have attached my Volvo quote to give an example.
Monthly rental £272.18
Initial rental £0
Admin fee £0
8k miles a year.

It's an 18 month lease so will extend the calculations to 24 months.
£272.18 * 24 = £6,532.32
Value of the car is £45000
So 6532 / 45000 * 100 = 14.5156%
so I am paying 14% of the value of the car over 2 years.


I would suggest GAP insurance as well, especially if you have a high initial rental. Initial rental is normally 3,6,9 or 12 months upfront. With the Golf R I paid £1700 upfront the first month. Because I had gap insurance, they paid me that back after it was stolen / written off. That’s an extra called initial rental cover. Best coverage is ALA insurance, use MSE25 code at checkout to get 25% off. Use the link below though.moneysavingexpert.com/redir/896efb84

I only use two sources to find deals. I have an alert for the word lease on HUKD app.Other source is Pistonheads forum, they usually post deals and then the % so you don’t have to work it out yourself.



I have pasted a link to page 29, which is the current latest. Page change be changed at the bottom of the screen.

Hope that makes sense. With leasing you have to be flexible with car choice. Good deals happen because a manufacturer wants to push out a particular car or outgoing model due for a refresh.

Cracking deal this. Especially if you can lure a few “do I own it?” idiots and a handful of people who understand that you can buy a car for £7k whilst failing to comprehend that it’s 12 years old. The bait is on the hook....

This car can be bought for £21k OTR from a number of dealers. So for this deal to be worthwhile the car would have to worth only £15.5k after 2 years with 16k miles on the clock or less. Your paying around 33% of the cars value here.

I bought the LUX version for £22k OTR because I couldn't find any lease deal good enough to beat the outright purchase price.

Obviously if you don't have the money to buy outright you'd have to factor in interest of around 3-5% of whatever you borrow which could sway it in the leases favour.

Front wheel drive vs All wheel drive. And I think it may be tuned slower too, the same engine is in the Golf GTi IIRC.

Edit: I think the 6.0 sec time they have on the website is for the manual version, the DSG should be 5.6 seconds according to Evo.

Same engine but better turbo, golf gti is running the is20 and the cupra the same as the golf R is38.
Lease meaning:

a contract by which one party conveys land, property, services, etc. to another for a specified time, usually in return for a periodic payment.

That’s what I meant, but I can see my post wasn’t as clear as it could’ve been. The same engine is used across a wide range and tuned differently, so the Golf R, Cupra and GTi all have different HP and of course the AWD of the Golf R helps it get the power down. It also used in the S3 I think, but I don’t know how that compares to the Golf R, I’d imagine it would be similar.

Sure. Although there was a test by Autocar, albeit a while back when the Cupra had 280 (276) and the Golf R had 300 (296) that showed they were very similar (on track) given the differences in drive.

Know somebody who has this very model and gets 29.0 mpg average. Mostly non motorway driving
Had one for a new months, love it and makes me smile every time i drive it

Get a res delete done and hear the pops and bangs
It has been cheaper from these guys, and with 10k miles and no admin fee. With this being a run out model I would of expected it to now be cheaper than before. Still the cheapest price at the moment by around £5 per month.

If you don't want to pay an upfront deposit and prefer a main dealer Seat Warrington have them for £289 per month no deposit over 3 years.
Edited by: "margamboy" 1st Aug
Had a Golf R a few years back. Was similar deal and car really. Hot from me.
Someone will pre-emptively defend..... oh wait

I jest, I can totally understand why people like leasing, fixed prices, peace of mind and getting to drive something nice etc, etc

Leasing isn't for me though, I spend roughly the same money as a lease on buying older stuff that I find interesting, most of which is appreciating in worth. I haven't sold a vehicle in 15 years.
I have literally just bought an Ex Demo one of these, had it for just over 2 weeks and it’s a fantastic car. For those asking, I believe this is slightly slower on the 0-60 than the previous cupra as the gearing is different in the new 7 speed gearbox also the Golf R has a bit more power and 4 wheel drive. As for MPG, it varies wildly depending how you drive it, short “fun” runs are not great, 22mpg or less in cupra/sport mode and even comfort isn’t great if you’re heavy footed but stick in comfort on a decent length run with a mix of steady cruising and a bit of traffic, should see around 28-32 and cruising on the motorway and you’ll get 36mpg, maybe more if you can resist using the power when overtaking.

Great post, very well explained.

FWIW I ordered one of these back in April for basically the same price from Leasing Options, but with 10k miles PA. Received about a month ago. Fantastic car but can be a little thirsty. I average around 27mpg but it's mostly short bursts of acceleration around town. I managed to get about 41mpg running in eco mode on the motorway for 150 miles.

But let's face it, you don't get a car like this to run in eco mode all the time. Stick it into Cupra mode and it turns into a different beast, with seemingly non-stop torque throughout the gears all the way from 0-70.

Same engine and gearbox as the Golf R but FWD only so struggles to get traction from a standing start, but I suspect it would probably match the Golf R from 20-70 due to the lower weight.
Is there any option to buy after the 2 years?
Such a great deal, however after hitting up confused.com for an insurance I'll have to rule this out :/
I really like that car. Shame I don't drive (yet).

The most recent car was an X308 Jaguar XJ-R, that was a few years ago and £4K, more recently I've been concentrating on motorcycles as they're easier to store, currently have 7 bikes ranging from a tiny Honda SS50E to a Ducati 851
Our Cooper S lease runs out in December, but convincing the wife to get an even faster car is going to be difficult.
This is a good deal, but using list price to compare it against buying outright, doesn't give you a true comparison. There is always deals on and I most peole don't pay list price.

Very good find, Chanchi. For anyone that owns one of these, what sort of …Very good find, Chanchi. For anyone that owns one of these, what sort of MPG do you get? Thinking about getting this and selling current car.


This depends how you drive it and what mode your in - to and from work i use comfort and drive about 17 miles each way, mostly country type roads upto 60 mph at some points,stop start on and easily see 40-44mpg I drive it normal so i'm very impressed with it. Stick it in sport or cupra and that changes everything, its just good to have the options.

I would say factor in putting in good petrol into it ie 99 shell stuff which does run a bit expensive.

I have to say as nice as it is it this shape to me does feel a bit dated now, but as said above at this price its a very good car for the money and yes its quick...very quick.

I ordered mine in december as a good deal came up and it arrived at the dealer in march not sure what wait times are like currently.
