Quarter 4 2019 review

There has not been a busier quarter for cars being added mid quarter in our memory.

Sadly we lost two of the best cars on the Scheme, the Toyota Rav4 and Mazda CX-5

Car Joined December 14th 2019

Toyota C-HR

The Toyota Coupe High Rider (C-HR) has been updated for 2020 with new trim lines and new engines. In the UK the C-HR is now only available as a self charging hybrid, the engine choices are 1.8 or 2.0 litre petrol paired to the electric power. The power output is 120bhp and 182 bhp respectively, all cars are front wheel drive CVT automatic and the larger engine has a 0-62mph time of 8.2 seconds and returns a claimed 49.50mpg. The 2.0 litre has a larger battery back offering 32 additional bhp compared to 23 in the 1.8.

 

Peugeot 208 and E-208 added 10th December

Peugeot 208

The New 208 comes as a petrol, a diesel and a full electric, E-208. Sharing many of the components of the Vauxhall Corsa (chassis, engines, gearbox, electrical architecture, dimensions) the 208 has the edge on design, inside and out the little Peugeot is incredibly pleasing on the eye. The engine choices are 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol with either 75bhp, 99bhp and 128bhp, a 1.5-litre diesel with 99bhp or a 134bhp (100kW motor and a 50kWh battery 0-60mph in 7.8 seconds) BEV version offering a WLTP range of 211 miles with no loss of space as the electric motor sits under the bonnet and the batteries under the rear seats. Charging times from empty to full are 20 hours using a conventional three-pin household socket, eight hours when using a dedicated home charging point, while a 100kW fast charger will provide an 80 percent charge in 30 minutes. Trim Lines are Active, Allure, GT-Line and GT. Prices for the E-208 start at £1499 Advance Payment for either the Active or Allure, rising to £1699 for the GT line and topping out at £1999 for the GT trim only available as an E-208. The petrol and diesel cars offer a much smaller Advance Payment starting at Nil and rising through the grades to £849 AP for the Automatic 1.2 litre petrol with 128bhp.

 

Mazda CX-30 added 10th December

Mazda CX-30

Mazda’s new SUV, sits between the CX-3 and CX-5 for size. (Why is it not called the CX-4? The number 4 is considered unlucky in Japan) Powered by their excellent turbo less 2.0 litre petrol front wheel drive engine producing 120bhp (badged Skyactiv-G) or 178bhp (Skyactiv-X). The larger engine delivering improved fuel economy, 47.7 combined mpg compared to 45.6 for the lower powered car and an improved 0-62 time of 9.0 seconds compared to 10.2 seconds, The CX30 also incorporates a mild hybrid system but it is so mild Mazda do not make reference to it in their literature. Trim lines are SE-L , SE-L Lux, Sport Lux and GT Sport.

 

T-Cross added 5th December 2019

Volkswagen T-Cross

Finally the VW Polo based T-Cross is added to the Scheme, bumper retail sales and the resultant build delays have kept it off until now. Sadly as demand is high, the Advance Payment prices (starting at £1149) do not make it anything like a bargain – but if you want what is generally perceived as the best small crossover then the price is worth paying. Trim Lines are S, SE, SEL and R-Line, to have parking sensors (front and rear) you have to choose the SEL trim, equipment is excellent aside from this; 8 inch touchscreen with CarPlay / android auto alongside automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and lane keeping assist. Two engines, a 1.0 litre three cylinder petrol, with 95 or 115 bhp (go for the 115 if you want six manual gears or a 7 speed dual clutch Automatic) or a 1.6 diesel with 95bhp with 5 manual gears or a 7 speed Auto. Prices for the 115 manual T-Cross are £1299 SE, £1699 SEL £2199 R-Line or as an Auto: £1599 SE, £1999 SEL and £2499 R-Line. Told you it was expensive!

 

Skoda Kamiq Joined 23rd November

Skoda Kamiq

The Skoda Kamiq is a small crossover (SUV) and the sister car to the Seat Arona and (sadly not on the Scheme) VW T-Cross. The Kamiq is largest of the three and offers a conservative looking alternative to the Nissan Juke. The 400 litre boot is 22 smaller than the Juke but the wide opening makes it a more practical solution. The 1.0 litre petrol is available with 94bhp (manual only) or 113bhp (manual or DSG Automatic). The larger 1.5 litre petrol offers a148bhp and genuine pace, 0-62 in 8.4 seconds. Two trims SE and SE L, The SE has 17 inch alloys, rear parking sensors, cruise control, wireless SmartLink for Apple Car Play (wired for Android Auto and mirrorlink) to the 8 inch Touchscreen, the SEL adds 18 inch alloy wheels ambient interior lighting, privacy glass, 9.2 inch Touchscreen and a virtual cockpit.  Prices start at Nil Advance payment, the 113bhp car starts at £195 manual and £795 Auto.

The 99bhp petrol being the pick.  Trim lines are SE, SE Premium, SRi, Sri Premium, Elite and Ultimate with nav versions of each adding a built in Sat nav.

DS3 Crossback Electric added 20th November

DS3 Crossback E-Tense (Electric)

The DS3 Crossback was designed with electrification in mind and as such the batteries are littered around the underside of the car meaning that the 350 litre boot is the same regardless of powertrain. The 50kWh battery paired to a 100kw electric motor offer a 0-62mph time of 8.9 seconds, a top speed of 93 mph and a WLTP driving range of 199 miles. The fast charging DC mode will charge from empty to 80% in 30 minutes, if you have access to a public 100kW charger, standard AC 7kW charging will take nearly 8 hours to go from empty to full. Prices start at £1999 Advance payment for the well appointed Prestige trim, for an extra £500 you can move up to the Ultra Prestige or for £2749 Advance Payment you can have the sumptuous La Premiere trim.

 

Ford Puma Joined Scheme 15th November

Ford Puma

The new Ford Puma is a compact crossover, similar in size to the Nissan Juke, Renault Captur and Mazda CX-3 and sits between the Ecosport and Kuga in the Ford stable and as with the previous Puma from the 1990’s it is based on the Ford Fiesta. The 456 litre boot is largest in class and by comparison the Ford Focus offers only 370 litres. The only engine option presently is a 1.0 litre three cylinder petrol manual booted by a mild 48v hybrid system to offer either 123bhp or 153bhp, both offer a sub 10 second 0-62 mph time, 9.8 and 8.9 seconds respectively. Economy is a claimed 67.3 mpg for the 123 car and 64.2 mpg for the larger output, realistically if you get 50 mpg you are doing well. The only trims are Titanium, ST- Line X and STLine X + with the first edition packs making them very well equipped indeed. Prices start at £545 Advance Payment for the Titanium first edition and rise to £1395 for the higher output ST Line X +.
