So the person who bought a new Evoque convertible and traded it in for another Kia after 5 months ownership didn't lose their shirt to an equal or greater extent than the £7k Seat?

Evoques aren't so desirable as to sell for the same as or more than you paid (despite the long build wait), even to sell it again at RRP, you'll have offered them 80-85% of the sticker price in resale.

Just because they (presumably) bought cash with their windfall doesn't mean they didn't lose a bundle rather than being in huge negative equity on a finance plan.

No, not at all, you made the point I was trying to make far more …No, not at all, you made the point I was trying to make far more complicated.I did say the figures and scenario were fabricated, if you read it again.What I was aiming to say is that people are opting for the car that they can't really afford (the Evoque should probably be £400+ if the Kuga is £299) - they achieve this by having a much bigger GFV at the end, resulting in them having to hand the car back and walk away with nothing, rather than saving up a bit of equity along the way. This is also the kind of situation that puts people in a worse state of neg eq too, if they try to escape earlier.It's telling that you use the phrase 'may not be worthy of driving the Evoque' - there is nothing special about them, as you may expect from something built in Merseyside (no disrespect to the people of the area, but it's hardly Maranello, is it?). I can say with 100% sincerity that one of our customers came into a lot of money, ditched her Kia for a brand new Evoque convertible (she waited around 10 months for it) and within 5 months had traded it back into us for a Kia...You are quite right about low cost lease deals driving everything else down, which is a point I made the other day about VWs bubble being about to burst (their group are doing more suicide lease deals than anyone else).After all the dirt cheap Golf R deals, and therefore the unnatural amount of them in the used marketplace, surely you will be taking a bigger hit than you had anticipated with yours?


There aren't that many leases around (lots of offers, but few cars actually available per offer campaign) , and you can spot them a mile off - they're all red or white (cheap/free paint option) and on the standard hideous wheels. I don't really go for optional extras as you lose your shirt on them (and the Golf is very well equipped as standard), but when the standard wheels look so ugly, I felt obligated to specify the 19" Prets (which do look very nice), as have nearly everyone who bought or PCP'd rather than leased.

Adding an option or 2 onto a lease really jacks the price up (as you're paying the whole cost of them over a very short term), and on the used forecourt I have seen 2 tier pricing on the R, with lease specials going for at least £2k less. There hasn't been deals like that lately on the hatchback R. I expect to get £18k p/x for mine at 3 years or £15/16k private sale after 4 years (I optioned the 5 year warranty, so a private sale at 4 years still comes with the confidence of a year's warranty for the next owner), given current retail used prices for non-leasers. Will still be slightly cheaper than lease overall, and I got my Prets, 5 year warranty and metallic paint in there.

Mine will be 3 years old in May, and I am not in the least bit tired of it.

There is nothing special about the Evoque, but you imply that if you can't afford to buy the £40k car, you shouldn't be entitled to lease it for £300 a month (if you can afford £300 a month). It will almost certainly be a better car than the Kuga, but not £16k better (which only really matters if you are buying it).

So you are saying that someone who can afford £300 a month may not be …So you are saying that someone who can afford £300 a month may not be worthy of driving the Evoque, because they cannot afford to (or choose not to) dump £40k into the car and buy it outright? You're highly unlikely to see a £22k Kuga (or any other Ford) hold 60% of RRP after 3 years to be worth £13k. Your example shows a £16k vs £11k loss from RRP to GFV costing the same monthlies. Would only happen if the Evoque was on 0% finance and the Ford have an APR of about 12%, in reality it is the other way around - with Ford/Vauxhall/Citroen etc. offering 0% APR to mitigate high levels of depreciation with no interest cost.When you PCP a car like a VW/Audi that has a high GFV and 5-6% APR, around 1/3 of your monthlies are going on interest, but with noticeably lower depreciation to mitigate.People will always believe they're getting a good deal when they can PCP a £30k car of one marque for the same monthly cost as a £20k car. Most of the time they will be getting a better deal - there needs to be something more to justify the higher RRP, better equipment, better performance etc. A prime example of this even within the same marque was when the Golf 184ps GTD could be had on PCP for a fiver a month less than the 150ps GT TDI because the far higher GFV mitigated the much higher RRP.If we keep being offered these cracking lease deals, traditional buying of new cars could be dying a death and used prices will be forced right down to make it cheaper owning a 2 year old car rather than leasing a new one at a bargain price.

Of course not, I agree completely, but;Dealers/manufacturers want people …Of course not, I agree completely, but;Dealers/manufacturers want people to at least buy their first car from the brand - repeat business probably being seen as a bonus.So, people are out looking at cars on a Saturday afternoon, they have say £300 per month to spend.They are faced with two options;A £22,000 Ford Kuga at £299 with a GFV of £11,000 or a £40,000 Evoque at £299 with a GFV of £24,000.They often think 'why should I drive a Ford when I can have a Range Rover for the same money', and choose the latter.(these are fabricated figures and an example scenario naturally, but that's pretty much what happens)At the end of the term, the Kuga is worth £13,000, so £2,000 towards the next car, the Evoque is worth £22,000 so[Image] It's pretty much a case of people wanting to drive a car that in reality they cannot afford, and the 'premium brand' manufacturers helping to stitch them up.

Lewis_Carpenter-11171513714 h, 3 m ago

Yes you're right, misread the OP. That argument was flawed on my part.I …Yes you're right, misread the OP. That argument was flawed on my part.I completely agree. I've looked at a couple of these lease deals, and when I compared the cost of buying the car with the best discount I could find from brokers, and looked at the GFV from PCP deals and assumed bottom trade in value in 24months, the lease still came out considerably cheaper.So yes, for the purpose of the site I completely agree, this deal is hot as it gives one of the cheapest ways to drive this brand new car for 8,000 miles over 24months.My responses were certainly off piste, and not really related to the deal, but a direct response to the comment I replied too. Appreciate that it's OT so deserving of your remarks...!At the same time, I still think there is scope for discussing the financial arguments about leasing as a whole, and whether a slightly used version of the same car can offer substantial savings. I appreciate your comment fully. If we did this on every iPhone and TV deal it would never end....! But, I think cars are a little different. You are not paying to own it for starters. You do not get heavy restrictions on how you use the TV or iPhone secondly, and thirdly, a slightly used version with a 2yr warranty is so so similar to a brand new one (lease cars tend to have a bit of mileage and other registered owners) that I think it's not altogether unfair to draw this direct comparison? I guess the question is, what are you getting extra for your money by buying 'brand new' vs buying slightly used, which I guess is part of the whole 'good deal' thing? Perhaps this isn't the place for this discussion though..!


"lease cars tend to have a bit of mileage and other registered owners"

I have never leased but my understanding is that the lease company is the only registered owner and the only mileage is delivery, particularly those cars that are not in stock at time of order, so as new as any other?
Yawn
There are pros and cons for both purchase and leasing. I looked at this recently after my son leased a 1.0 ST Fiesta, same engine as this. It goes very well. However the Focus is a bit heavier and not sure if I would buy one. However Nissan are putting a 1.2 litre in their Qashqai and look at the size of one of theirs. Small turbo engines make these fly but only time will tell how reliable they are.

My wife changed her car in August and we looked at the lease deal as it meant we could have a new car instead of one up to two years old. We were looking at a 66 plate Vauxhall Mokka to buy and compared it to a two year lease but in the end we decided the best deal for us was to buy it outright and not lease. My wife does about 5k a year and at the time the Mokka was about £200 per month and I think about £1200 up front on a lease deal. We decided that as we are both older it would be best to buy. If either one of us lost our jobs at least we cold get rid of the car compared to having a lease stuck round our necks. Remember that it is harder to get jobs sometimes when you are older. Also your guarantee of health is less too and as we found out recently, only 2 months after buying the car my wife is going to have to give up work due to ill health. She may never drive again so imagine the predicament with a lease deal. As we bought the car cash we can easily sell it if we decide. We discussed lease deals with three different sales guys and when we mentioned the subject of being older and approaching retirement years they all agreed that purchase was the best option. From a depreciation point of view at least with a lease deal you have fixed costs for the next 24/36 months but with purchase it can be a bit of a minefield. We lost £3100 on our 12 plate Fiesta purchased in 2014, part exchanged exactly 3 years later so I don't think that's bad all. We know we will lose more on the Mokka in the same timeframe as it's newer and cost quite a bit more to buy than the Fiesta.

Also agree about buying the Sony 55mm FE over this but Amazon is also doing the Samyang 35mm F2.8 AF FE lens for just £220 (today only) and that is a little corker of a lens, had mine a couple of weeks now and is truly amazing for the price, very sharp, compact and light, the £450 more expensive Sony Zeiss 35mm is not worth the extra IMO unless you really value weatherproofing.

"The participants were also asked to complete a series of cognitive tests that were not part of the training to see if the program had any effect on their general cognitive abilities.

While both groups showed improvement, the researchers found that commercial brain training didn't lead to any more improvement than online video games."

So all games are good for general cognitive ability then...

It's strange that they didn't see any change in the participants' attitude to risk, a function that they linked to cognitive abilities, with article using this to determine a lack of benefit of play. Yet the above quote suggests a different test did show an improvement in cognitive ability as a result of playing games.

People who can afford it don't care about that kind of thing.With buying second hand, the car has the biggest level of depreciation in the first couple of years, so you're still getting a quality car, saving a good wedge off the new price, and not tied to any annoying contract.



Wealthy people tend to have a better understanding of depreciation and cost of ownership than the average person. That's why they're more likely to choose a lease deal over ownership if they calculate ownership to be the more expensive option.

exactly and cars have improved massively over the last 10 years. its the cost of ownership that clueless people miss. If I buy used that usually means buy outright. this means expensive loan or bang goes your savings

I get about 28mpg urban being careful, 32mpg on a long run. The car sounds amazing when you hoof it but does miss an LSD under acceleration. however thats reflected in the price. golfs have them but are a lot more ££



Nice little review - bet you are loving it! They do sound nice. See this is the only problem for me, as you have said, you miss the LSD. I have a car with a Drexxler diff and I would struggle to get a car without an LSD now.

The mpg i've been talking about is actual (brim method). Without the box on, the MFD is 3% optimistic and with it is about 9% optimistic, so appears to be overfuelling on average 6% more than the ECU thinks it is. Going to work (12 mile commute each way), the car reads about 52mpg in current weather, I take this to be around 47.5mpg actual. That's without sparing the horses. The car would appear to be more economical than stock when you're not putting your foot down, cancelling out it's additional thirst when you do. The car has been transformed with the box. Mine is the dual channel performance one.

How much you have to pay to keep the car after the lease period ?


You don't keep the car after 2 year you hand it back. Better in a way as you have no hassle in selling it on. if you bought outright you could get it for about 15500 but it would only 10000 after 2 years plus you need to factor in interest finance if buying on a loan. I think its a good deal.
