PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new vehicle.
You choose the vehicle, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the vehicle outright for an agreed lump sum (the Guaranteed Minimum Future Value or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.

Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a vehicle once all payments are made.
This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the vehicle is yours.
One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on monthly payments.
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.

Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for private individuals. This is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a vehicle for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the vehicle and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your vehicle.

Road Tax is based upon the CO2 emissions of the vehicle and is split into 13 bands from A to M. The higher the letter the greater the cost of tax paid to drive the vehicle on public roads. In addition to the road tax detailed below, any vehicle that had a manufacturers retail price in excess of £40,000 when first sold, attracts a road tax supplement of an additional £320 per year. This is charged until the vehicle is 6 years old.
Traditionally, the smart fortwo has attracted a distinct, loyal band of urban-based buyers who really wouldn't consider anything else. This third generation version though, has wider appeal, classier, cleverer and more effective than ever in its town-targeted remit thanks to Mercedes engineering and shared development with Renault. Arguably, it's the car this model should always have been.
The shortcomings of the last smart fortwo didn't take a genius to identify. It had grown expensive for what it offered, there were newer and trendier citycar alternatives available, practicality was an issue, the transmission had always been woeful, the engine wasn't particularly great and it handled pretty much how you'd expect such a short and tall vehicle to. Clearly there was work to do, but smart could only rectify so much. The size and thus the space inside were constrained by the form factor. The way the car handled would, to a greater or lesser degree, also be a function of that philosophy. Still, it's fair to say the latest third-generation fortwo has the capacity to surprise even the most jaded smart-cynic. Developed in partnership with Renault, the fortwo shares some of its underpinnings with the longer Twingo but in no way do the two cars share a common feel. If you'd quite fancied a smart but never got on with the jerky transmission and unsettled ride, it's time to press the reset button.
The fortwo is offered with two engines, both three-cylinder petrol-powered units. The 899cc turbocharged engine develops 90bhp (or 109bhp in the BRABUS variant), while the 999cc normally aspirated engine a mere 71bhp. Torque figures for the mainstream engines are 135 and 90Nm respectively. The 999cc powerplant isn't quick at all. The 'sprint' to 62mph is a leisurely 14.4 second amble but the throttle response is a bit more faithful than in the more surging turbocharged car. That may make city driving that bit more relaxing, as indeed will the updated transmission. Gone is the vile robotised manual change that had your head jerking about like a Thunderbird puppet with each gearchange. In its place comes a much preferable five-speed manual box with a six-speed twin-clutch automatic following on its heels. The suspension delivers far more refinement than before, which belies the fact that the car's length hasn't changed at all. What has changed is the fact that it's 11cm wider, and that extra track width offers a bit more of a reassuring feel when cornering. The turning circle remains tiny at just 6.95m, and because there are no driveshafts going to the front wheels, they can be angled right out to 45 degrees, which makes the Fortwo able to undertake even the most optimistic-looking parking manoeuvre.
Buyers of this fortwo model get a choice of fixed-top or cabrio bodystyles and either way, the look is very different this time round. Still, at least the tridion safety cell - something of a smart trademark - is present and correct, so people won't be confused about what they're looking at. A characteristic swage line is followed by the fuel filler cap on the right and the air inlet for the rear engine under the B-pillar on the left. Side rubbing strips shuck off car park knocks. Where previous fortwos have been quite slab-sided, smart's designers have this time attempted to massage a bit of shape into the flank of the fortwo with an almost Volvo-style shoulder line that's most apparent as it melds into the rear light cluster. The cabin features as many quirky touches as you can stomach and it's good to see smart pushing the boat out a bit with colours and textures, including a 'technical mesh' finish. At the prices charged, this should be a car that feels premium and different to the usual citycar norm. There's even a bit more luggage space on offer, the fixed-top version boasting a capacity of 260-litres to the parcel shelf and 350-litres when stacked to the roof.
The fortwo range opens at around £10,000 for the 999cc models, with the 899cc turbo versions starting at a little under £12,000. Those figures are both for cars with the manual gearchange as standard. Choose to opt for the dual-clutch and that'll add around £1,000 to the asking price. Already then, price-wise, fortwo is starting to get into the realms of a very respectable supermini; something like a Volkswagen Polo for instance. Expect to have to find a premium of just over £2,000 if you want the cabrio version. The entry-level 'Pure' trim gets 15-inch wheels, electric windows, remote locking, a 'smart' audio system, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, a height-adjustable steering wheel and driver's seat and LED daytime running lamps. Plusher 'Passion' trim adds automatic climate control, Bluetooth and an orange/black or white/black interior theme. The 'Prime' trim will set you back around £700 more, for which you get 15-inch black rims, panoramic glass roof, black leather upholstery, lane-keeping assist, heated seats and extra dashboard instrument pods with a cockpit clock and rev counter. Alternatively you can choose the 'Proxy' trim for the same price, which features Y-spoke black 16-inch alloy wheels, a blue & white interior, a sports leather multifunction steering wheel, 10mm lowered suspension, chrome exhaust finisher and rubber-studded alloy pedals. Also on offer is the 'Premium' package (for around £800) and the 'Premium Plus' package (for around £1,300). These bring features like navigation, a height-adjustable heated steering wheel, electrically-adjustable mirrors, ambient lighting, LED headlights, a rearview camera, a 'coming home' function and rain & light sensors. There's even rear parking assist, but if you need extra help in parking a Smart Fortwo, you're probably best off sticking to a push bike. At the top of the range is the pricey BRABUS version.
The fuel economy of the fortwo has caused a bit of a debate, with some feeling that it's not as impressive as it perhaps ought to be. It's certainly not a fuel hog, with the 999cc engine turning in a combined figure of 68.9mpg and the 899cc turbo recording 67.3mpg, but when a much bigger car like a petrol Polo can record numbers in the sixties too, the Fortwo looks as if it's dragging its heels a tad. By contrast, a Volkswagen up! with 75PS and rear seats can get better than 67mpg, while coming in at less than £12k. Emissions for the fortwo are rated at 93g/km for the 999cc unit and 97g/km for the 899 turbo three-pot. Where the car looks likely to score over its less charismatic rivals is in terms of resale value. Despite this, it's hard to make a case for the fortwo on a purely financial basis against the best citycars.
