Mind you, the photos are from the offered version (1) but from the next model up (2). The basic model is a bit too spartan, missing mainly Bluetooth and a/c. Otherwise, it's a reliable and well put together city runabout. It feels a lot more solid (and actually nice to drive and sit in) that the Czech triplets (C1, 108, Aygo) which in comparison feel like something you'd find in a Happy Meal.
At first I thought it's finance deal to buy and own this car..
Edit - Car is £8233 to purchase here http://www.broker4cars.co.uk/kia/new-kia-picanto.htm 2016 cars are around £5k, so you'd save about £1500 buying outright which ties in with the 30% cost of p11d target for a 3 year lease deal.
I'm all for leasing, but its a £9600 p11d car even before looking at brokers, and this deal is 48% of p11d. A good deal for 3 years would be 30%. Awful deal imo, needs to be around £3000 or under in total cost over the 3 years to be decent
I ran the numbers for a previous e-golf thread, so probably worth copying here in case anyone is interested (the link formatting didn't copy so let me know if you want any of the source links): The e-golf gets approximately 4 miles per kWh. Each kWh costs 5p if charged off-peak (4 hours each night) on an Octopus EV tariff. So the e-golf would cost approximately 1.25p per mile to run. The average petrol/diesel car costs approximately 12p-15p per mile in fuel according to gov.uk figures. So you save approximately 12p per mile, or to put it another way: you save approximately £1000 per 8,000 miles that you drive when compared with an average petrol/diesel engine car.
This guy drove his Zoe from London to Croatia and back for his family holiday. He seemed to have managed perfectly fine. https://twitter.com/teapot56/status/1162508204217110533
Do you need car allowance from the company to get this deal?
These look dire! I see one the other day and the colour was errr UNDERCOAT! What is all that about!
Same dilema. ID and loads of EVs out next year. Prob only want a 12month leave. EGolf will drop in price tho as being replaced. Hmmmmm

Had a hire one of these last weekend, because they didn't have the car I wanted. Pointless thing, can't fit anything long in it because of the hard barrier between back and front storage areas, and parking in London is pretty much impossible. Horses for courses I guess though.
Seems to me, to be a good deal for a double cab.
Absolutely, and because they're a bit bigger, they can just about cover the zig-zag lines outside schools and at traffic lights. Perfect!
Yeah judging by the way I see most of them driven round my here I presume it's a feature of the design that you have to drive them always as fast as possible with absolutely no regard for the Highway Code, or other road users. I would expect most will have a bit more "wear and tear" than the average vehicle after two years.
Great for dropping the kids off at school and nipping into town for a bit of shopping.

So true. More and more cars on the road these days. Would rather go for comfort and functionality.
You’re welcome. You only need a family member to work for one of those organisations. They can pass the discount to you.
You're welcome and you're also right, it is the correct terminology. I've never heard of anyone who toe and heels (lol) that being said your use of commas and full stops is none existent, so I'm not surprised you got it the wrong way round.
(lol) (lol) (lol) Thanks for the correct terminology mr professional but if u didnt no and i dont think u do otherwise u wouldnt have made such a (poo) (horror) comment is that as human-being we are all different and what might work for others will not always work for u8) e.g i prefer to toe and heel as it works better for me and there are other professional racing drivers that i go on track days with with that dont do neaither as there feet are to wind and they only use there toes (lol) ;) but hey if heel and toe works for u then thats great but just cause someone does it differently does make it wrong as long as it gets the job done (y)
lol i think the pedal looked and felt great in my opinion especially the aluminium ones i had in my Abarth with logo on them. I agree with you the 595 is for a certain type of driver and i used mine as a go kart for town driving :D then for tack days id pick one of my 5 toys to take. i found the Abarth easy to heel and toe etc so i just used it to practice on when ever i could. if memory serves me right there was quite a few F1 drivers that owned an Abarth.

Vauxhall Grandland X 1.2T SE 5dr - 5000 Miles Car Lease - Initial Fee: £1,136.45 / 23m x £126.26 - Total Cost £4,235.43 @ Jet vehicle finance£4,235.43
Initial rental £1136.45. 23* £126.26. Admin Fee £195. 0 to 62 mph (secs): 9.5 Top Speed: 117 Engine Power - BHP: 130 6 speed Combined mpg 46.3
Is the MG ZS (petrol) that bad? They give 7x warranty...
My wife also took delivery of one of these 3 weeks ago for local school runs and shopping etc - absolutely fantastic deal for a large family car, does everything you'd want for a brilliant price
Test driven this car today. An absolute great car to lease at such low price. Not sure to buy it as would not hold much value.
Got a 1.4 turbo zafira tourer, it is a great car. Moves a lot quicker than the 1.6 Toyota auris we had before.
In 17 years of driving I have never exceeded 8,000miles a year. The reason - I have a company van without personal use so the car only moves to go shopping/gym etc on an evening and maybe a couple of trips out on the weekend and occasional trip to the coast etc... I still need a car but I don't need a large mileage allowance. At the moment me and my wife are sharing a car while she is on maternity leave, it gets used every day for nursery drops, doctors appointments, kids classes, shopping, trips to the grandparents 100mile away, in the last 12 months we did 6,200mile. Personal circumstance is a strange beast.

Vauxhall Astra Hatchback 1.6T 16V 200 Elite Nav 5dr - 3 years lease, 8k miles, £676 fee £177 a month. (£6877 total) @ Jet Vehicle Finance£6,877£7,1213% off
Decent sized family car for £177 a month, with three months initial payment, and £144.99 admin fee
Has anyone who ordered through Jet taken delivery yet? I'm still waiting. They said they're expecting the cars to arrive at the dealership this week and then it'll be another couple of weeks to sort the finance paperwork. Seems a bit backward. My last two leases had everything signed at the start so that as soon as the car arrived with the dealer it was good to be delivered to me straight away.
Oh that's clever.
I'd one of these on a previous deal and found it to be a very good car to drive.The Elite Nav is a decent spec with some nice touches.
I’m configuring to the same terms as the deal above but it’s coming up £188 per month and £195 fee. Has the price changed or have I got it wrong ?

Vauxhall Crossland Elite Nav Lease @ Jet Vehicle Finance - £4,448.51 (£165.52 x 24 Months)£4,448.51
Top of the range Vauxhall Crossland with all the bells and whistles for less than £4500 over two years with 8000 miles seems a decent deal to me
I couldn't believe it either so just did a Google on the R1. GSXR1000 is a but more reserved with 143. Same as my Mazda 6 lol. Maybe they work it out differently on bikes. Surprising your cbr600 has the same bhp as my 1992 model
I have a 2011 cbr 600 that puts out 100hp and its plenty fast enough for me. 180hp would be scary!
That would be a small motorcycle by today's standards. My 27 year old honda cbr600 puts out 100bhp from its little 599cc engine. Big bikes today are pushing out 180bhp. Perhaps vauxhall should have a word with Yamaha and out their R1 engine in it or at least their 1.4 turbo engine they stick in the Mokka. Perhaps they do.
83 BHP is fine.......... in a motorcycle!
Do these things come as standard with a complimentary pair of matching wolf fleece jackets?

Vauxhall Mokka X - Elite Nav 1.4T - AUTO - 24mth lease 10k mile per year £5678/05 @ Jet vehicle hire£5,678.05
I was on the hunt for a new car that had to be an automatic (my GF can only drive autos) was fairly cheap to run, and came across this. Now if you first look at the lease price of… Read more
Where have the last 20 months gone! (shock) - The Mokka has proven to be a fantastic car over the period I’ve had it. Literally zero issues, not one.....and still drives like the day I received it. Been looking around for other mini SUV autos in the mid £5k price range, and the only thing that comes even close on price is the more expensive 1.0 Skoda Kamiq base model at £5,780, with the SEL model coming in at over £6k This really should’ve been a hot deal when I first posted it! 8)
Ditched the CLK and the new Mokka turns up Monday week. Have test driven another one and it’s absolutely fine. Clearly no pleasing some people
Boot is bigger than a fiesta. Bear in mind the Mokka is based on the corsa platform so you may as well say that for any small car.
Each to their own. I test drove one around 3 years ago and thought it was fine, so have no reason to think that the drive has suddenly got worse since then. Also people say it drinks petrol but I’m coming from a 2003 Mercedes CLK55 which averaged 16mpg, so anything I get in will be a vast improvement on fuel economy!
I’ve done 11600 too I was told that if my mileage was still low the price would be more expensive to buy than if I had done the full 16000! Soo they want more profit from me if I buy....... or re rent for £192 for a year .........no idea what to do decisions decisions! They certainly don’t want to give you a deal by buying it through them........I may follow it to the auction.........
