A big thank you to our Surrey based personal leasing customer for sending though pictures of their new car – the Mercedes GLC Estate!
Organising the car, in short space of time, proved to be an interesting transaction for the team here as the customer concerned was unsure as to whether or not they would buy or lease their new car.
Choosing the right financial product for using/buying a car is extremely important. While there are many financial products available within the market, not all of these will be suitable for your individual needs and requirements.
As per the customer in this transaction, they had previously used a personal contract purchase (PCP) as a means of procuring cars. However, at the end of the contract, they would never keep the vehicle, as they did not want a car which fell outside of the warranty period.
Having identified this, our team discussed the possibility of a contract hire arrangement, which might a) offer the style of product they actually required; and b) offer cost-savings.
In terms of the car shown, the Mercedes-Benz GLC DIESEL ESTATE GLC 220d 4Matic AMG Line 5 door 9G-Tronic, this is based on the following configuration:
· Iridium Silver Metallic Paint
· Artico leather – Black
· High gloss black with aluminium trim
· 19″ AMG 5 twin spoke alloy wheels in titanium grey
As standard the car includes privacy glass, rain sensing wipers, adaptive brake system, brake calipers with Mercedes lettering, hold function, AMG floor mats, Bluetooth, active park assist, attention assist, collision prevention assist, crosswind assist, 7” colour screen, Garmin Map Pilot, electrically adjustable door mirrors, DAB, AMG body styling, LED lights, climate control, flat-bottomed steering wheel, sport pedals, mirror pack, storage pack, lighting pack, warning triangle and first aid kit, 4-way lumbar support, heated front seats and alarm system/immobiliser.
In terms of additional extras, consider upgrading to the Premium or Premium Plus vehicle.
On the technical-side, the company car and business driver can note the P11d of £ 40,785.00 and CO2 at 129g/km for a standard vehicle. The 2143CC 9 speed auto engine delivers 56.5 combined MPG, 170ps and 0-62 times of 8.3 seconds. Service intervals on a diesel GLC are every 12 months or 15,000 miles (whichever lands sooner). Do consider that these statistics are pre-WLTP and are therefore relevant for those drivers taking a vehicle pre-1 September 2018.
Would the Mercedes GLC be your preferred leasing option? Or would the BMW X3 or Audi Q5?
