No affiliation, but we looked at all of these while choosing our new Van.
If you are considering an outright purchase Motorpoint often has good deals on Nearly-New (Often ex-rental, less than a year old) Vans.
It’s a Berlingo Enterprise (which means you get the 3 front seats, Air Con, Cruise Control and Touch Screen Radio) It’s also the higher capacity 850kg model which gets you the 90ps engine instead of the 675kg’s 75ps engine.
A year old, and having covered 16000 miles, probably an ex hire or lease van, it’ll still be under the Citroen warranty so no worries there. Effectively a new van for 9 Grand. Bargain!
It’s the kind of Van I’ll be buying when my current one expires, although I may hold out for the (hopefully) forthcoming turbocharged petrol version.
I have no affiliation with Arnold Clark (or any dealer for that matter) but I’d assume as a pretty major player in the Motor trade, they are a pretty safe bet to make a purchase from.
I think the DS3 is a funky little thing, a bit bigger than the competitor Fiat 500 and Mini, but still suitably ‘cool’
£650 deposit and then £1740 over the year = £2390 for a years hassle free motoring.
Even if leasing isn’t for you (and its not for everyone), check out Ling’s website anyway, it’s awesome 🙂

IF you are looking for a small car, there are some pretty good deals out there on the new Vauxhall Corsa at the minute, while pricing may look similar to a more desirable VW UP or Skoda Citigo, The Corsa can actually be significantly better value for money, for a start its bigger, which if you have ever seen the size of a VW UP!’s boot is a major plus point, is cheap to run and maintan, and the included spec on many cars is something bigger cars would lust after.
The car which took our eye was this Brand New (but Pre-registered) Corsa 1.4 Sting 3 door which had as standard:
Bluetooth Phone System
Cruise Control & Speed Limiter
As well as all the stuff you expect nowadays – Power Steering, Alloy Wheels, Electric Windows.
Not bad for a Brand New 7 Grand Hatchback! Some Higher spec models even now have Heated Windscreens, Heated Seats AND Heated Steering Wheels!!
This car was for sale with the Peter Vardy Group – Link
