PCP (Personal Contract Purchase)

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

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.

Lease

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.

Ten Second Review

If you're looking for an economical family hatch and you've a reasonably-sized budget to work with, start with the improved Volkswagen Golf 2.0 TDI and then consider other options. Chances are you'll come back to this model. With 150PS of grunt, 67.3mpg fuel economy and a chassis that delivers real fun, it's about as good as hatchbacks get.

Background

"Just buy a Golf." It's a bit of advice usually doled out by motoring journalists who don't want to listen to another protracted 'What car should I buy?' diatribe over dinner. Yet there's a reason for it. Volkswagen Golfs have tended to be so reliably excellent that it's hard to go wrong following this line of reasoning. Yes, some have been a little dull, but in choosing Volkswagen's hardy perennial, you always knew you weren't going to be saddled with a lemon. Still, times change and in order to make sure that I was still doing a sterling service for dinner party guests before ushering them onto more stimulating topics of conversation, I decided to get behind the wheel of what might be the pick of the recently improved Golf range, the 2.0-litre TDI 150.

Driving Experience

The TDI diesel badge that adorns this car's sharply chamfered rump might lull you into thinking you're in for a soporific spell behind the wheel. That's far from the case. The common rail diesel sparks up with a bit of a chunter but settles down into a modest idle. It's not so smooth that you're going to forget which pump to pull up at but it's far better than the agricultural old VW Pump-Duse diesel engines. It's more flexible too, this latest 150PS unit offering its peak torque of 320Nm between 1750 and 3000rpm. It feels seriously muscular and it works really well with the DSG twin-clutch gearbox. Sport mode will plug you straight into the meat of the torque and will hold gears a little longer if you're coming into a corner. This improved Golf Mk 7 does corners really rather well. There's just enough movement in the body to signal clearly where the limits of grip are, but punt the car into a well-sighted bend and it feels like a decent hot hatch in its grip, steering response and body control. Its performance in a straight line is more warm than hot, making 62mph in 8.6 seconds on the way to a top speed of 134mph, but it's a car that's easy to flow along a decent road with. You rarely feel the weight of the diesel engine in the nose and the expensive multi-link rear suspension means that there's little bump and thump entering the cabin even on poorly-surfaced roads.

Design and Build

The first thing you'll notice about this revised Golf is probably its slightly sleeker front end. Many variants now get full-LED headlamps and the air intakes at either corner of the front bumper have been restyled too. Jewel-like LED tail lamps are now standard across the range and on top versions, there are smart animated flowing indicators too. Otherwise, things are much as before - which means that there's a choice between three or five-door hatch and estate bodystyles, both of which sit on the Volkswagen Group's light, stiff and very sophisticated MQB chassis. And behind the thinner multi-function steering wheel? Well, as ever, nobody does it better than this. It isn't that it feels especially plush, though the quality of materials used is excellent - and far better, incidentally, in this Wolfsburg-constructed Golf than Volkswagen's similarly priced but Mexican-built compact Jetta saloon. It's just that everything is of just the right quality and feels absolutely fit for purpose. In this revised model, the cabin has been given a lift by the addition of smarter decorative trim panels on the doors, the dash panel and the centre console, as well as classier seat covers. Out back, there's a 380-litre cargo bay in the hatch version that's much bigger than that provided by rival Focus and Astra models. It can be extended to 1,270-litres if you push forward the rear seats.

Market and Model

A Golf with the 2.0-litre TDI 150 engine is priced from just over £22,000 for a manual three-door in SE trim and tops out at just over £26,000 for a GT trim with five doors and a DSG gearbox. That might sound quite a lot for a diesel Golf but this is one car that grows on you, impressing you day by day with the way it combines entertainment and sheer practicality. There's a £655 premium to go from the three-door bodystyle to the five-door bodyshape that 90% of British buyers choose and from there, you get the option of finding a further £700 more for the estate bodystyle if you want it. A key change with this revised model lies with media connectivity. An 8-inch 'Composition Media' screen now comes as standard. Plus there's the option of a really sophisticated 'Discover Pro' monitor, this being the first Volkswagen infotainment system to offer both touch and voice-command operation, with gesture control in addition to proximity sensors. Your dealer will also want to tell you about the clever 'Media Control' app that can be used if your Golf's infotainment set-up incorporates a wi-fi hotspot. Passengers simply connect in their 'phones or tablets via the app, then the entertainment system can be operated from anywhere in the car. As you'd expect, there's full 'Apple CarPlay' and 'Android Auto' compatibility so you can link in your smartphone and use your favourite apps in-car.

Cost of Ownership

The Golf 2.0-litre TDI 150 in a typical five-door SE trim fitted with a manual gearbox makes an for an extremely affordable ownership experience. Even when put up against rivals from Vauxhall and Ford, the Golf works out markedly cheaper to own. Over a three year/36,000 mile ownership period, the Golf will cost 51 pence per mile to run, the Focus 2.0TDCi Zetec S will set you back 58 pence per mile while the Astra 2.0CDTi 165 stings you for 72 pence per mile. The Golf wins almost right across the board. It's cheaper to insure than these rivals, it gets much better fuel economy, residual values are way better and, believe it or not, it's even cheaper to service. Go for a manual car and it'll return 67.3mpg on the combined cycle, while a DSG-equipped model drops that to 62.8mpg. It's a similar story on emissions. A manual nets you 109g/km, while the twin-clutch version emits 117g/km. Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems help the Golf TDI 150 to these exemplary figures.
