Ford Focus 1.0T EcoBoost 100PS Finance

New Ford Focus Personal Contract Hire

Funding the Ford Focus 1.0T EcoBoost 100PS is easier than falling-off a log. Why? Because there are three ways to pay. The first is Ford's Personal Contract Hire Plan which requires one Advance Rental Payment of £3,969, followed by thirty-five monthly instalments of £189. This totals £10,584. However, it is not the route to ownership. At the end of the term the car must be returned to its manufacturer – preferably without any logs cluttering the fairly spacious 316-litre boot. It therefore has to be farewell to the refined petrol engine that propels log lovers to 62mph in 12.5 seconds, and averages 58.9mpg. These figures are more than respectable. The contract also imposes a 9,000 mile annual limit with excesses charged at 6.98 pence per-mile. Funding option two, of course, is cold hard cash. The list price is £17,545 but allowing the salesman to share your log should secure a discount. Very few buyers pay list prices, after all. But whatever the final cost the Focus has rock-solid handling, beautifully weighted steering, a comfortable ride, and smooth five-speed manual transmission. Impressive qualities considering it is a small family car. It also has plenty of toys. Highlights include the: heated windscreen, air-con, electric mirrors, alloy wheels, CD/MP3 player, and Bluetooth.

New Ford Focus Personal Contract Purchase

The Ford Focus 1.0T EcoBoost 100PS is also available via a Personal Contract Plan, with Ford Options. Terms include the £3,962.28 deposit which is followed by one payment of £199 (including the £10 Finance Facility Fee) and twenty-three instalments of £189. At the end of the contract there are three options. One, pay the £7,759 Optional Final Payment to own the vehicle outright. This totals £16,277.28 including £947.28 interest and the £10 Purchase Fee. The Focus' striking lines and excellent build quality then become a permanent feature of your driveway. Option two is to return it and walk away. There should be nothing further to pay assuming it is in reasonable condition and has not exceeded the 9,000 mile annual allowance. Excesses are charged at 7.2 pence per-mile. Option three is to purchase - as per option one - then part exchange by starting a further Personal Contract Plan. If the Focus 1.0T EcoBoost Hatchback is worth more than its Final Payment - perhaps because it has low mileage or an extra special log in the glove box - the difference contributes toward a newer vehicle's deposit. Choices choices.
