If you are looking at a higher mileage contract, you do need to ensure that the car and the contract you are undertaking is suitable for your needs and requirements.
On the car-side, do make sure you consider the manual vs auto in any car; for drivers covering 15,000 miles or more there is a strong argument that an automatic car would benefit you tremendously. Obviously there are cost considerations within this. Also research the key facets of a car such as combined MPG, standard specification and service intervals which all need be balanced in your thought process.
Where you are covering high mileage, make sure you accurately calculate the driver maintained contract (where you are responsible for all servicing and tyres) vs the funder-maintained contract (cost of all servicing, tyres and maintenance incorporated). Much of this will depend on the service intervals, cost of servicing and the size of tyres.
Contract hire is a great tool for providing certainty of cost, so if you can incorporate all elements this reduces the likelihood of any surprising costs.
On the technical-side, the 2143CC 9 speed auto engine delivers 170ps which offers a combined 64.2 MPG and 0-62 times of 7.5 seconds. On the company car side, please note the P11d of £35,610.00 and CO at 112g/km. On the servicing-side, its every 12 months or 15,500 miles, whichever is sooner.
For lower-mileage 2 year contract hire agreements, you may lean towards the driver-maintained contract.
