Just bought my first new car.
- Ford EcoSport ST-Line 1.0 EcoBoost 125PS
- Automatic (has gear paddles, so is probably a semi-automatic?)
- Magnetic paint
- Comfort Pack (heated seats and steering wheel)
- Rear Privacy Glass
I traded in my 2012 Peugeot 308 diesel semi-automatic (£3000) and, on Ford's 38-month (3-year) PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) plan, I'm paying £245 per month.
I hope that's considered a good price?
It'll arrive later in the week (or early next week).
In many ways, it's not as good as my Peugeot 308
was. Far worse fuel economy, smaller tank (52l vs 60l), worse emissions (140 g/km vs 98 g/km), less cylinders, less valves and a smaller boot (430l vs. 356l) but oh well, I could only afford up to £250 per month and my 308 needed to go.
On the flip side, it's covered by a warranty during the time I have it (no repair stresses) and has more technology inside (well, the touchscreen (they're always rubbish) and heated seats/steering wheel).
I got 54 MPG out of my 308 on average (link
). Let's see how the puny petrol engine does (link
