Why it may benefit you to order your next lease car ASAP. 

04/02/2020

Why it may benefit you to order your next lease car ASAP. 

A revised structure of tax linked to vehicle emissions, due to be introduced for all newly registered cars from April 2020, means that until the 2022/23 tax year, there will be two BiK tax systems. 

The first system will apply to all cars registered before 6 April 2020 and tested using the NEDC test cycle. For cars registered from 6 April 2020, a new structure will apply, based on the CO2emissions data for cars tested using the new WLTP test cycle.

The WLTP test cycle is more stringent and therefore most vehicles emissions will rise.  In short, it is going to be financially beneficial to lease a car registered on or before the end of March 2020. 


Let’s look further into this.

The Government has accepted that there will be a rise, more or less across the board, in CO2 emissions, because WLTP is more stringent, and will be offering an allowance to drivers by dropping tax rates by approximately 2%. This means that if a vehicle’s emissions have gone up by 10g/km the driver should not be disadvantaged.

In reality however, most vehicles emissions will rise by more than 10g/km which means drivers will incur more charges. 

The only way, therefore, to avoid charges is to arrange a new lease car that will be registered on or before the 31st March 2020. Our team are on hand to guide you through the list of vehicles that are in stock, that can be delivered before this deadline – and of course they can ensure your needs are met in other areas – make/model/specification – too. 

It is worth pointing out that if you are midway through a lease the emissions cannot change and therefore the tax you pay is set.

Here are two examples of how emissions will change – one showing a reduction and one a significant rise.

Car Leasing review – the Hyundai Kona Hybrid 

21/01/2020

Car Leasing review – the Hyundai Kona Hybrid 

The electric only Kona has a 12 month waiting list and with the diesel model having been quietly retired, the Hyundai Kona Hybrid is a great option to consider as your next lease car. 

The Hyundai Kona Hybrid has a 1.6-litre petrol engine and a 43bhp electric motor connected to a 1.56kWh battery pack – the car’s overall economy figure is 56.5mpg.

CO2 emissions of 99g/km, or slightly less with smaller wheels, make the Kona Hybrid a good choice for company car drivers and with 139bhp, the Kona Hybrid also has a good amount of power although is a car that’s reported as “at its best when driven gently.” 

 

The Huyndai Kona boasts a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system from the middle Premium trim, with a screen wide enough to display two sets of information at once. The entry-level SE trim has seven-inch screen and Premium SE is more luxurious with additions such as leather upholstery and LED headlights – but of course, you’ll pay more for it.

The boot size isn’t compromised in the hybrid – it’s the same 361 litres as non-hybrid versions and with 60:40 split-folding seats, the boot increases in size to 1,143 litres. 

A solid choice if you’re in the market for a hybrid, crossover SUV that’s a family car that, in our opinion, looks pretty good!
