VOLKSWAGEN UP 1.0 Take Up 3dr - 36 months at £94.80 + £569 Initial payment, Total £4067 at Central UK Vehicle Leasing

Found 10th Nov 2014
At last a 36 month lease, get full value of the warranty and still no MOT, works out £113 a month for a brand new VW.

Cost breakdown
Initial Payment of £569
35 payments of £94.80
Documentation fees of £180
Mileage is 5,000PA or another fiver a month gets you 8,000PA.

Official figures are 62.8MPG combined so expect around 55MPG in real life.

It's a basic spec car but you still get DAB radio and all the safety features of the higher spec models.

Always worth checking against buying a new one incase of finance or free insurance offers.

Service Intervals.
Volkswagen are pleased to offer you a choice on how your new up! is serviced. The appropriate selection
is entirely dependent on how the car is likely to be driven and its general use. To help you identify which
type of service would be most suitable, please refer to the following guide.
The Time and Distance Service is recommended for vehicles that will cover less than 10,000 miles in
12 months and if the vehicle is likely to be used in the following way:
• Predominantly urban driving, short journeys with frequent cold starts.
• Activities regularly producing high engine loading, e.g. frequent hill climbs, driving with vehicle fully
loaded and towing.
• Uneconomical driving style using high rpms with heavy acceleration and heavy braking.
The service intervals for the Time and Distance Service are as follows:
• Oil change service. Every 10,000 miles/1 year (whichever is soonest).
• Interval service. Every 20,000 miles/2 years (whichever is soonest).
• Inspection service. Every 40,000 miles/3 years (whichever is soonest).
The LongLife Service is recommended for vehicles with a daily mileage of more than 25 miles where
the vehicle is driven regularly mainly on longer distance journeys. The vehicle is driven mainly at a constant
speed with minimum vehicle and engine loading, minimal towing and driven in an economical manner.
With the LongLife Service the vehicle can cover anywhere between 10,000† and a maximum of 18,000†
miles or 24 months (whichever is soonest) between oil changes. Inspection service is typically in the third
year of ownership and thereafter every second year, for vehicles with an approximate annual mileage of
10,000 miles.

Do you get to keep the car at the end of the term?

I could buy a decent second hand motor for £4k instead. Cold!

Is insurance included, a monthly box of chocolates and quarterly bouquet of flowers?

Ta OP.

Voted hot.

Not sure about this one. That's for 15000 miles over 36 monmths, and only £3000 less than the new price listed.

Wouldn't a loan for slightly more over 36 months, or the same amount for slightly longer, be a better option if you really wanted a new one of these?

Cheapest I could find one was over £8000 so about 50% over the 3 years not taking into account any interest from the loan.

An extra fiver a month gets you 24,000 miles over the term which is about the average for private drivers.

BTW I'm pretty certain the new price listed on the leasing site is excluding VAT as the VW site states £8765 and the cheapest I could find was over £8k.

Looks like a good deal to me. No worries about selling it on at the end of the term. I would go for this if it was 5 door

How can he not accept a comment? You put up a cheeky comment, expect a cheeky response.


Not my cup of tea but a deal is a deal.

I had one of these for five days recently as a courtesy car while my Golf was in the garage and its a fantastic little car. Much bigger on the inside than you'd imagine. I'm 6'2 and there's just as much space in the drivers side as my Golf.

It's very nippy around town and easy to park. Great fuel consumption figures too.

And you end up with nothing?? Brilliant deal!!

Its a lease.

Presumably you will have driven it for 3 years though and "ended up" getting from A to B on a few occasions. No?

Jeebus, the lunatics have taken over the asylum.

A monthly bus pass where I live is £84 and no, I don't get to keep the bus.

Why wont people understand that sensible leasing is good value for money?

And with one of these you wont have to sit next to the sweaty old man on the bus.

Brand new UP is £10K+ if you financed this over 3 years for example you'd own it but you'd have spent £10K, depends if you want to use it for 3 years and spend £4K and give it back or pay £10K for a new one, then you can do the same again and probably wouldn't be far off £4K for some other car lease deal, so that's six years and two new cars, total spend less than £10K or you keep the old one for 6 years that you spent £10K on. Oh forget it, no one understands I have to say this in every lease deal lol. You technically don't own the car if you have to finance a new one, so if you want a new car then you'd lease one. It's so obvious!

Then you get the fools who say well you can get a used car blah blah, this is a deal for a new car for people that want a new car and don't want to lose money on buying a new car.

I didn't even go to a decent school, and I understand it lol.

I have seen many of these deals and in threads I post to I am always told that you are better off leasing being old school still can't understand it so here goes.

You can buy the same car for 6.5k, with 5000 miles and less than 6 months old. go for a bigger spec car and get a loan from sainsburys for double the cost here and pay over 3 years and at the end have a car worth 4k and no worries about having to pay any additional payment. Finance charge over 3 years works out at £450

And unlike a sandwich, I see a car as an asset but many now see it as something to throw away

And no one in their right mind buys new, so don't try pulling that one

Car deals...... make me so angry I feel like making sweeping generalisations about drivers of certain makes of cars, clueless comments about the reliability of makes of cars I really know nothing about and generally pedantically arguing with all other posters on car deals.

Grrrrrrr.

Think I'd rather have a Fiesta Zetec-S on a lease deal than one of these.

If nobody brought cars new then there will be little/to no 2nd hand cars. The cost of a 2nd hand car will just sky rocket. Use some common sense please.

let's imagine this;

A - you buy the Up! for full cash price
B - you lease it

in A your money is tied up in a car, can't be used to invest elsewhere

B long as the monthly payments equal to depreciation B is the winner

Your Sainsbury's deal is not £96 a month it's at least £195 a month. You don't own the car until you've paid off the loan, then you have a used car you have to deal keep and maintain yourself or you can get another lease and carry on paying a similar amount. Doesn't take a genius to work that one out.

Would love to find one of these 6-12 months old for circa £6,500. They have fantastic reviews and I just want a small economical car.

Please point me in the direction of where I might find one:)

come on, there will always be people buying new cars but if you are a real hotdealer you wouldnt ever buy one, so common sense...:)

there will always be a new car market if people didnt buy them there would be less demand so prices would fall and would have a knock on effect on used cars as well. Simple economics.

no but 4k gets you such a good second hand car. I'm interested: what do you invest in?

Good price, not a fan of vw, especially after being forced to suffer a polo hire car but for cheap motoring this is great. Wish toyota would release a new IQ, love mine but getting a bit dated inside now.
