PCP finance deals get better for new 19 plate cars

Monday 18th February 2019 13:40:27

 

PCP Finance deals have just got better!

 

 

Are you looking to get a new 19 plate car this March? If so, then you might be tempted by a range of finance deals in showrooms. The latest reports suggest they are better than they were in late 2018.

 

 

PCP finance (aka Personal Contract Purchase) is a popular style of motor finance. It requires a deposit payment, followed by a set number of fixed, monthly payments. At the end of the agreement, a customer can either:

 

 

  • pay a fixed, final balloon payment to own the vehicle (aka the Guaranteed Future Value)

  • trade the vehicle in, with any vehicle value above the GFV used as a deposit for the new vehicle.

  • hand the car back with no further payments or liability

 

 

In has been reported in trade publication, AM Online, that the average PCP deal had dropped by 4.4% per month. The average monthly payment is now £311.40.

 

 

Further comparisons to the Q4 of 2018 highlight other areas that PCP deals have improved.

 

 

  • The average deposit required has fallen 10%

  • The average APR charged has dropped from 4.35% to 3.78%

  • The number of 0% APR deals on offer has risen from 41 in Q4 2018 to 63 in the first quarter of 2019
