New Cars for Quarter 4

UPDATE: JLR have not been able to agree prices with Motability. The Jaguar XE and Range Rover Evoque will not be joining the Scheme on October 1st and doubt remains over their inclusion in the future.

When the price cap for Motability cars came into force in 2012 JLR were unable to hit the required price point so they removed their cars from the Scheme. Fast forward to 2016 and we are delighted to confirm the Range Rover Evoque and the Jaguar XE will be added from 1st October.

Range Rover Evoque Motability Car

The Evoque is back

Range Rover Evoque

Those of you thinking JLR have added the Evoque as it’s a bit long in the tooth or sales must be flagging – think again.  The last four years sales of the Evoque have passed 50 000 units across Europe and they will again this year and there are no immediate plans for a new Evoque to be released, in fact the mid life update (2017) is the car on the Scheme.

The model available is the Evoque SE Tech TD4 (Diesel 4 wheel drive) 180hp as either a 6 speed manual or the much acclaimed 9 speed Auto, this trim line comes with an array of equipment including: Cruise control, Eight-way driver and passenger heated leather electric seats, Front and rear park distance sensors with visual display, Rain sensing windscreen wipers and automatic headlamps, Eight speaker sound system with DAB radio, Lane Departure Warning with Autonomous Emergency Braking,  18 inch five split-spoke alloy wheels, Heated front windscreen, Xenon headlamps with LED signature lighting and automatic headlamp levelling, Front fog lamps and a 5″ Touchscreen with Satellite Navigation.

Extras for the Evoke can be added at full cost: Panoramic glass roof £985 or £1505 if you want a contrasting colour roof, Privacy glass £365, Heated rear seats £315, Powered Tailgate £415, Park assist £625, Heated steering wheel £195, 12 way electric seats with memory function and 4 way lumbar support £795.

We have had it confirmed that the Evoque will comply to the present pricing restrictions set by Motability so we expect advance payments of £1995 for the manual car and £2995 for the automatic.


Jaguar XE - Class act

Jaguar XE – Class act

Jaguar XE

The Jaguar XE Prestige 180PS rear wheel drive diesel in both automatic and manual transmissions will become available on the Motability Scheme from 1st October. The Jaguar XE is the smallest Jag avaialble, comparable in size to a BMW 3 Series, and like the BMW it is rear wheel driven (or all wheel drive as an option) The 2.0 litre diesel with 180hp will propel the little Jag to 62mph in a blistering 7.8 seconds yet return a claimed economy of 67.3 miles per gallon as a rear wheel driven car paired to a six speed manual gearbox or 8 speed automatic.  The Prestige trim has leather seats with heater front seats with 8 way manual adjustment, lane departure warning, auto emergency braking, cruise control and speed limiter, 8″ touch screen with Satellite Navigation and InControl Protect which delivers a clever Remote Smartphone App to check your fuel levels remotely, find your vehicle in a busy car park, record your journeys and even check that you haven’t left a window open. In the event of a breakdown, Optimised Jaguar Assistance transmits location and vehicle diagnostic data to your recovery company. In a more serious incident, SOS Emergency Call notifies the emergency services of your location. Prices are to be confirmed but expect £1995 for the manual car and £2995 for the Auto.


Seat Ateca Motability Car

Seat Ateca SUV

Seat Ateca (unconfirmed for 1st October)

The Ateca continues the Seat tradition (apart from the Mii) of naming cars after Spanish Cities, Islands, Towns or Palaces. Ateca is a town of 1969 inhabitants and does not offer the beauty of Ibiza, the historic importance of Leon, the grandeur of the Alhambra palace or the seaside gem that is Altea. Ateca’s only claim to fame is that El Cid passed through – strange choice by Seat as it does not exactly roll off the tongue.

The Ateca has been popping up at Motability events since May this year, so its inclusion on the Scheme is pretty much guaranteed.

The Ateca shares a heap of its DNA with the new Volkswagen Tiguan, although the SEAT is marginally shorter because it sits on a slightly different version of the MQB platform – sharing its underpinnings and interior look with the existing Leon. The Ateca’s 510-litre storage area (485 litres in four-wheel drive models) looses out to the Tiguan’s 615 litres, but still trumps the Qashqai and Renault Kadjar, which trail with 430 and 472 litres respectively.

Engines and gearboxes are shared with the Tiguan, which means turbocharged TSI petrol and TDI diesel engines ranging from 115bhp to 187bhp, with either front-wheel or all-wheel-drive, mated to manual or dual-clutch DSG transmissions. Unlike the Tiguan, however, you can get a tiny 115bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder TSI engine for the Ateca.

We expect the pricing to be very competitive and comparable with the Kadjar and Qashqai.


New Fiat Tipo from Nil Advance Payment

New Fiat Tipo from £55.75 per week

Fiat Tipo – Out Now

The new Fiat Tipo is a five door hatchback and estate car similar in size to the Volkswagen Golf, Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra. The Tipo offers two petrol and two diesel options, with three gearboxes to choose from: manual, automatic and dual-clutch auto. The most popular engine is likely to be the 1.6 MultiJet diesel, which produces 118bhp, but the 1.3-litre MultiJet with 94bhp also emits less than 100g/km of CO2. Standard equipment includes air-conditioning, central locking, front electric windows, DAB radio, USB and Bluetooth connectivity, split-filing rear seats and media buttons on the steering wheel. The entry level 94bhp 1.4 litre petrol manual hatchback is available for a weekly payment of £55.75 leaving you with £1.70 per week plus any increase in DLA/PIP over the course of the lease.



New Volkswagen Tiguan Motability car

Volkswagen Tiguan – (unconfirmed for 1st October)

With the arrival of the Evoque and the challenge of the Ateca looming we are certain to see the (nearly) new Tiguan on the Scheme. Offering smoother lines and a weight loss of up to 50kg over the old Tiguan, this new car is considerably larger too, boot space has increased to an impressive 615 litres and the towing capacity set to be be up to a whopping 2500kg in the big diesel. Expect price to near the top end of the scale with the S, SE and SE Nav being the only trims avaialble.



New Ford Kuga - Not yet.

New Ford Kuga – Not yet.

Ford Kuga – Not Released yet

Despite reports of the new Kuga being available to order from October, this appears not to be the case, the latest information we have from Ford is that it will now be ‘towards the end of the year’ which is nice and vague. The mid life shake up for the Kuga sees quite a transformation, the new front is beefed up considerably and the new 1.5 118bhp diesel should be a winner. The all new 8″ Sync 3 infotainment system is an excellent addition.
