The BMW is the leading executive saloon!
The executive saloon/estate category is absolutely stacked with great options, some of which cost only around the £300 per month mark.
The competitiveness of this market has actually created a situation in the contract hire industry where a 5 series can be cheaper than a Ford or Vauxhall equivalent.
This is down to a) the discounts which leasing companies obtain for new vehicles; and b) the residual value on the vehicles. As the vehicles go to auction at the end of the contract, it is clear that the used car market has an insatiable appetite for all things luxury and German. But if you had the choice, would the Audi A6, Jaguar XF, Mercedes E Class or Volvo S90 not feature in your consideration?
While none of the aforementioned are in any way a poor option (is there really such a thing as a bad car anymore??!!) some customers simply know what type of car they want and will often stick with a specific brand notwithstanding price, specification or availability.
For the more sensible-minded leasing customers, if you are open to consider alternative lease car deals, you are almost certain to be offered some special manufacturer deals.
Our existing personal leasing customer here from Kenley (Croydon) was very much one of our more malleable customers and open to suggestions. As our TrusptPilot review demonstrates (https://uk.trustpilot.com/users/517ab4fd0000640001396d33) a supporter of our business for over 12 years, Sunil has placed his trust and faith in the Car Lease UK team to deliver effective and efficient lease solutions time after time.
This is not something which we take for granted and it was amazing that we were able to procure a luxury vehicle for under their monthly budget.
The car shown is actually a “pre-registered” vehicle and came about when we were alerted to a number of cancelled units from a previous batch which were not delivered.
We have a number of customers who put faith in us to keep them alerted on any “special” deals which arise, as we need to move very quickly to secure and deliver the vehicles. The old adage of “there’s only one left” is sometimes a true and factual statement in the world of sales!
