VW Up Lease car

Volkswagen Up Leasing

The Up is Volkswagens small city car available in either 3 or 5 doors, which began production in December 2011 in Slovakia. Volkswagen added the e-Up electric version to the line-up in 2013.

Following a model facelift in 2020, Volkswagen Up Lease is now a choice of two petrol engines, the standard 1.0 litre with 59bhp with a choice of four trim levels, or top of the range Up GTI which offers a turbocharged 113bhp. 

While the Up maybe small, it is mighty when it comes to interior quality and believe it or not storage space! The boxy shape equals a surprisingly roomy boot, and an ample amount of leg and head room, even for tall adults.

VW e-Up Lease

In 2013 Volkswagen added the electric e-Up to the range. Only available in 5 doors with one trim level the e-Up gives a competitive electric range of 160 miles, top speed of 82mph and impressive standard features over rivals Seat Mii and Skoda Citigo Other petrol or electric alternatives to consider are the Fiat 500, Hyundai i10 and Renault Zoe.

Offering both business and personal car leasing contracts from 24-60 months based on a minimum annual mileage of 5,000 miles, you can amend your contract length, initial rental, and annual mileage to suit you. Remember it is important to think about the finer details of your lease to avoid excess mileage charges.

Like all Volkswagens, the Up comes with a three year/60,000-mile warranty and one year’s breakdown cover.

If you’re comparing a brand-new VW Up and tend to keep your cars for 3 or 4 years, then yes, it’s always more cost effective to lease a VW.  If you’re comparing a used VW Up, then you’re trying to compare apples with pears and not really comparing like for like.  Remembering that older cars to tend to cost more in terms of their ongoing maintenance.

Yes, personal contract hire is a contract hire agreement.  The vehicle is registered to the leasing company, and you lease it for a set period, paying a fixed monthly amount each month.  It’s designed to hand the vehicle back at the end of the agreement, leaving you free to take out your next lease.  A PCP agreement has 3 options at the end of the set timeframe.  You can purchase the vehicle and pay the balloon payment.  You can part-exchange the vehicle and settle the outstanding finance (balloon amount) or you can hand the vehicle back to the funder.  Usually, a PCP costs around £100 per month more than a lease repayment on the same car.
