What’s new from Audi?

The German car manufacturer consistently sets top-of-the-class bench-marks for high quality, technologically upgraded cars. This is no different for their upcoming releases in the SUV and hatchback sector.

Audi Q3 SUV (November 2018)

The second-generation Audi Q3 is set to launch in November 2018, with it having a fresh take on the premium SUV. The new model will be technologically upgraded, larger and more comfortable than before.

With similar models such as the BMW X2 and the Range Rover Evoque already on the market, the Q3’s bold, family-friendly style also follows a more muscular appearance compared to Audi’s previous Q2 model.

The Q3’s interior features high-quality materials, allowing it to have a slick, sharp and sporty design. The updated technology is evident from Audi’s virtual cockpit digital dials with built-in touch-screen technology, as well as optional ambient lighting with over 30 selectable colours at your choosing.

Due to the Q3’s larger design, boot space measures in at 675 litres (providing rear seats are slid forward), or even 1,525 litres can be achieved with the 40:20:40 split rear seats folded flat, making it more suitable for the family-friendly customer.

The Q3 will be offered with users choosing between three different petrol engines and one diesel engine. More details on the exact engine specifications can be found at Car Buyer’s news on the new Q3 model.

As far as leasing offers go, (as per 19/09/18) pricing starts at £229.09 – £378.81 for a 24 month contract (pricing depends on different Q3 versions). Different contracts are available, but more information on leasing prices can be found here.

The Q3 is certainly a worthy opponent to take on the WhatCar’s Car of the Year, the Volvo XC40. For more general and detailed information on the latest Audi Q3 SUV model, take a look at Carbuyer’sin-depth review. 

2018 Audi Q8The Q3 isn’t the only addition to Audi’s SUV range. With SUVs continuing to take up a large portion of the car market, Audi’s continuing strive to deliver doesn’t stop there.

The Q8 is another take on the SUV market, with it being positioned above Audi’s previous Q7 model with a more stylish, striking and desirable design.

The Q8 is set to take on its major rivals including the BMW X6 and the Mercedes GLE Coupe, both credible competitors in redefining the coupe SUV market. This is done through the Q8’s redefined style with upgraded features and technology.

That being said, technology always plays a part in Audi’s latest versions of cars and is no different here. The full-width LED lighting combined with the larger grille helps fulfil the refined, sportier appearance.

The interior technology focuses on providing sharp, ease-of-use general conveniences by integrating touch dual screen infotainment systems, with the Virtual cockpit 12.3 inch standard digital dials supporting the car’s general ease of use. A more comprehensive, detailed overview on the Q8’s cabin features and technologies can be found at Autocar’s Q8 review.

As for leasing prices, (as per 19/09/18) the upgraded SUV starts at £726.76 – £948.84 for a 24 month contract, however other contracts are available on Carleasing’s website.

The second-generation hot hatchback will follow a sporting new look with advanced cabin tech, drawing on high-tech safety with general convenience.

Audi aims to make this latest model a key competitor with the current hot-selling Mini, in an attempt to make it the most generously equipped supermini on sale.

The latest A1 will be the smallest model in Audi’s range, with a sporting design in the hopes of drawing new and young customers to the brand. The increase in size (4 meters long) helps to meet general conveniences by increasing interior cabin space and adding 65 litres of luggage capacity.

he sporting elements allow the A1’s power to come from a choice of turbocharged TSFI petrol engines (no diesel version offered).

Depending on the individual models offered, some of the top models are offered with firmer sports suspension, depending on how much sportiness you are looking for.

Car Leasing

Car leasing is the most popular way that people purchase their new cars here in the UK. In fact, 80% of all new cars on the road in the UK are financed and purchased through some form of car leasing arrangement. When it comes to leasing there are a couple of points to consider, firstly are you going to be leasing the car personally or through a business agreement? On personal / private agreements all the prices quoted include VAT, whereas on a business lease all prices exclude VAT. This is the main principal difference between the two agreements.

Business Car Leasing – as a business owner or company director it is one of the perks of the job that you get to choose what car you want and to some extent how much you choose to pay. Having said this, in todays world when you lease a car through your business there are now a number of points to consider. The government has made it very clear that buying new cars that are CO2 emissions friendly and eco friendly mean that you will get the most tax relief at the end of each year. As a result of this hybrid and green cars have become very popular with business users. Cars such as the Audi A3 are now very popular because of their green appeal.

Personal / Private Customers – When you buy a new car on personal lease you get exactly the same car as you would if you went into a dealership. You get the same warranty, specification and cover as you would normally expect. The main difference is what you pay for the car. As an online business we use various lenders and negotiate deals in bulk on many different cars and as such we can save money on the cost of the lease when we supply them to you. All cars are delivered free of charge to address across the UK and normally take anywhere from 8-12 weeks for delivery.  The main benefit of leasing your new car from Car Leasing Online is that the monthly repayment is fixed and as such won’t change over the duration of the lease, allowing you to monitor and manage your money finances more efficiently.

Lease a New Car

Buying a new car is a large commitment, so its vital that you get the car you want at the price that you want. In today’s entry, I want to talk about leasing a new car and some of the associated benefits of doing so. When you lease a new car, you don’t actually own the vehicle, the leasing company own it and essentially you are ‘hiring’ the car for a period of time. This is probably the easiest way to explain how car leasing works.

Having said this though, here in the UK it is the most popular way in which people buy their new cars. Leasing a new car has a number of benefits for both personal customers and business customers and this is one of the reasons why it is so popular. Some of the benefits of leasing a new car can include being able to plan and manage your monthly outgoing more efficiently, as the monthly rental is fixed for the duration of the agreement. If you are a business user there are also other benefits such as company car tax allowance, VAT relief and fuel allowances that will all help with your end off year accounts and tax bill.

Low Deposit Car Leasing

Car leasing allows your to buy your new car quite quickly and offers you flexibility in how much you choose to pay both for the initial payment and also ongoing for the duration of the leasing agreement. In today’s entry we are going to look at low deposit car leasing options and talk about the pros and cons of using this leasing option.

One of the principal benefits of a low deposit car leasing deal is that the initial payment, often referred to as the deposit, is quite low. This initial payment is literally just one months rental and is paid shortly after delivery of your vehicle. This allows you to drive away in your new car without having to put down and invest a lot of your money/capital.

The downside to this, generally speaking is that it raises your ongoing monthly payments as the more put down (pay as a deposit) the less you will pay each month on an ongoing basis. In the car leasing world you can put down anything from one months payment up to twelve months payments as a deposit and this flexibility is one of the main reason many people choose to leas their cars rather than purchase them outright.

In additional to choosing what deposit to put down you can also choose the period (how long) you want to lease your car over. The most popular leasing terms are generally 24-36 months and this is true for both business customers and also personal / private customers. By getting this flexibility it allows you to change or update your car fairly regularly and also takes the stress and worry out of your motoring. All cars from Car Leasing Online are brand new and come with full UK manufactures warranty.

Low deposit car leasing is a great way to get yourself on the road in a brand new car and many of our customers come back once their existing lease have come to an end. We have an excellent retention rate of customers and this is due to our excellent customer service, prices and cars that we provide. If your existing lease is due to come to and end in the next 2-3 months it is worth considering getting your new car ordered now. Quite often with new cars they can take anywhere from 4-12 weeks to be delivered. Having said this, if you are coming to the end of your existing agreement and need any help or advice – especially around low deposit car leasing then please do give us a call. Our team of car leasing experts are hand to answer any questions that you may have.

If you have used us before or if you have any thoughts, ideas or suggestions then please do comment in the box below. We love to hear from our customers.

The models we have chosen to look at and talk about today include:

Audi A4 – One of the most popular models available, the Audi A4 has been around for a number of years now in various incarnations and is a very popular model for business users who spend many hours on the road. The smart, professional look and excellent mileage offered by this car make it a firm favourite for company car users.

It is a beautiful looking, futuristic car that is stacked with some of Audi’s finest technology. The A7 is another car that is posted to compete with the likes of the Mercedes CLS, although on this occasion I think Audi have produced an absolute winner. Perfect for customers who demand the absolute best from their cars.

Audi A8 – The flagship model, the A8 is a monster of a car and comes absolutley packed with technology. This car competes with the likes of Mercedes S Class and as such, Audi have pulled out all the stops to make this one of the best cars on the market. This premium saloon is the perfect car for businessman and executives.

Audi TT – The sporty two seater car from Audi is available in a number of options and for such a small car, the engine packs a real punch.

Car Leasing Explained

Car leasing is one of the most popular ways to purchase and finance your new car. Here in the UK it is estimated that nearly 80% of all new cars on the road are financed and used in this way. There are a number of reasons for this, principally it offers new car buyers a very cost effective way for them to get behind the wheel of a new car every 2-3 years. It also takes any stress or worry out of your motoring as all new cars come with full manufactures warranty.

When it comes to leasing your new car there are two main points to think about – are you a business customer or a personal customer? The main reason this is important is that business customers have their prices shown without VAT and personal customers have the VAT included.

There are a couple of different options and contracts available when it comes to leasing a car and in today entry we will try to explain them and make them as simple as possible.

Personal Lease:

PCH – personal contract hire is the simplest way of leasing a car as a private customer. You simply pay a deposit of between 3, 6,9 or 12 monthly rentals up front and then each month pay your agreed rental. At the end if the agreement the car is simply returned with nothing more to pay. This allows you have a nice new car regular.

PCP – personal contract purchase is similar to PCH, although at the end of the agreement you have the option to purchase the car.

Hire Purchase – This option essentially lets you fund the cost of the whole car, minus any deposit that you put down. Typically this option has higher monthly payments compared to the other finance options.

Business Lease:

Contract Hire – as with the PCH for private customers, contract hire works in a very similar way. The only difference being that all prices are plus VAT on business prices.

Finance Lease and sale and lease back are just some of the other options available for business customers, although contract hire is by far the most popular option.

I hope today’s entry has explained on some way the options that are available to you should you wish to purchase your new car with Car Leasing Online. If you are unsure or have any question then please do give us a call and one of our leasing experts will be on hand to help and advise.

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.
