Personal Car Leasing Advice

September is one of two months in the year when new cars and registrations take place and if you are looking for a new car, now is a good time to start thinking about the make and model you would like to buy. Quite often, new cars that are going out and being sold on personal lease can take up to 6 weeks to be delivered from main dealers and this is why August is a good month to start thinking about your next new car.

When leasing a car on Personal Car Leasing there a number of points to consider. These include:

How long do you want the car for?

This affects the monthly payments as how old the car is at the end of the agreement affects its long-term residual value and has to be taken into consideration when working out the monthly payments.

How many months initial rental do you want to put down (Pay)?

The initial deposit or up-front payment as it is sometimes known as, is often 3, 6, 9 or 12 x the monthly rental and this payment has an effect on much your ongoing monthly rental will be. As a general rule, the larger the initial deposit the less the ongoing monthly payments will be.

What sort of annual mileage will you do each year?

The annual mileage has large effect on the residual value of the car and this is considered and influences the monthly rental cost.

The process involved in leasing your new car is fairly simple once you know what car you want. You can either then find the car and deal you would like here on our website and apply or give one of our car leasing experts a call, then we apply for finance and once this has been approved we can then start to look at a delivery date.

Honda Civic Review

The latest Honda Civic is now in its 10 iteration and over years it has gone though a number of big changes, both visually and also under the the bonnet. The new civic for 2018 is longer, lower and comes with more advanced suspension than its predecessor and this was a conscious choice by the designers at Honda as they need to complete with the likes of the Skoda Octavia and VW Golf.

One of the key selling points for the new civic is its competitive price point and choice of engines. As a guide, this is available from only c.£140 per month and in terms of petrol engine choice, it comes with an entry level 1.0 litre engine, then it goes up to the 1.5 litre and then the insane Type R 2.0 litre version There is also a 1.6 litre diesel engines that performs exceptionally well and offers excellent MPG.

Another area where Honda have excelled  in this new release and design is that even the entry level models of this car come completely stacked and fully loaded with goodies, even on their so called standard cars. Things such as parking censors, electric mirrors and metallic paint are standard options on nearly all of the base entry levels cars. In addition to this the new Civic’s come in a wide choice of popular and modern colours. The brilliant sport blue metallic colour has been one of the most popular colours that we have seen here at Car Leasing Online.

To conclude this overall review of the new Civic, What Car have given it a solid 4/5 and recommend the entry level 1.0 litre as the engine size to buy as a private customer. In our opinion here at Car Leasing Online, we agree that if performance and speed are not your principal concerns then the 1.0 litre is perfect for this car. Overall we like this car and believe it make a cracking family car that is economical and also stylish.
