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.

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.
The Citan is a well-engineered city van that comes in three different lengths with both petrol and diesel engines which offer great economy and emissions. Yes, it's effectively a badge-engineered Renault Kangoo and is made in the same plant, but it will appeal to a different customer.
If there's one word that sums up the Mercedes-Benz approach to vehicle development, it's probably thoroughness. These are very considered vehicles, developed with a specific task and customer in mind and are finely honed to that end. You can probably think of endless examples of Mercedes passenger cars that fit that description but, if anything, the company's commercial vehicles are even more impressive. The reason? While many of the cars get an easier ride on the strength of badge equity, the vans and trucks often need to distinguish themselves on an absolutely objective basis. That's the measure of the task facing the Mercedes-Benz Citan city van. It's a hugely significant vehicle for Mercedes. Small vans make up 45 per cent of the European LCV market and without such a product in their range, the company's growth aspirations have always been capped. Many business want contracts with one manufacturer, and without a city van in the line up, they've gone looking elsewhere. That's not the case any more. But is the Citan all that it seems? Developed in conjunction with Renault, is it anything other than a badge-engineered Kangoo van? Let's take a look.
The chassis on the Citan is based on a MacPherson strut front end with rubber mounts on the lower wishbones to ensure good driving characteristics and a high degree of comfort. The rear axle is a space-saving compound-link axle with trailing arms, coil springs and an internal stabiliser. Nothing too radical there; just a benchmark of the class best. The engineering team set out to achieve typical Mercedes driving characteristics through a combination of driving dynamics, safety and comfort. The electric power steering, with a steering column that is adjustable in height, combines both accuracy and efficiency, the power assistance dependent on driving speed. It ensures low effort when manoeuvring and a reassuring feel at higher speeds. The Citan is offered with a broad range of powerplants. Most customers will choose a version of the turbodiesel direct-injection Mercedes-Benz OM607 unit and there are three, which all share a displacement of 1.5-litres. First up is the Citan 108 CDI, with a 75PS power output and 180Nm of torque. Then there's the Citan 109 CDI (90PS and 200Nm) and then the punchy Citan 111 CDI (110PS, 240Nm). Also offered in most markets is the Citan 112, a turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol engine with a 114PS output and 190Nm of torque. Yes, that's right, a 1.2 petrol with more torque than a 1.5 diesel.
The Citan is offered in three different body lengths to offer a decent level of flexibility. There's Compact, Long and Extra Long although there's no real difference in roof height. There's also a five seat Citan Dualiner which offers a whole stack of versatility when employees, materials or even both must be transported. This gets a folding rear bench seat, an optional separator grille closing off the load compartment and two glazed sliding doors. It's based on the Extra Long variant and the load compartment behind the folding bench seat is panelled between the C and D-pillar just like a panel van. There's also a Traveliner model offered. It's a five-seater with a folding rear bench seat and is based on the Long variant. The standard version includes a sliding door on the right-hand side or, alternatively, doors on both sides are available as options. The sidewalls of the Citan Traveliner are completely glazed. The standard version also features a glazed tailgate with a wiper and washer system. The inner side of the tailgate is panelled with hard-wearing plastic. Whichever model you choose, you get the same functional, well-built fascia with a three-clcok instrument binnacle and a simple centre stack with a stubby raised gear lever that's easy to reach. It feels well built without being ostentatious. Built in Renault's factory in Maubege in France, the Citan gets Mercedes-specific upholstery and is fully protected against corrosion, with fully galvanized sheet metal bodywork.
Prices look competitive, with the Citan available from just over £13,000 (excluding VAT) for the 108 CDI Compact. Alternatively, there's Mercedes' Agility finance offers that can put you in a 109 CDI Compact Trade Edition for around £50 per week following a deposit of around £600. If you'd rather buy outright, one of these will set you back just over £13,500. These prices are a little way removed from what you'd pay for Renault's Kangoo, with the 109 CDI Long costing around £1,200 more than a Kangoo. Is it worth it? That's a tough call. Most of the really nice touches are available as option packs which bump the price up still further. The Drivers' Pack includes electric folding mirrors, centre armrest with stowage compartment, air conditioning and rear reversing aid and adds around £1,222 to the asking price. Alternatively there's a Safety Pack which adds driver and passenger thorax bag, passenger airbag and fog lamps for a smidgeon over £500. There are also Appearance, Cargo and Flexibility Packs available.
