LEASING TRENDS THIS AUTUMN

Fultons research has revealed that BMW and Mercedes are topping the Manufacturer Leasing charts, while Ford and Volkswagen continue to fall.

Furthermore, the study showed that when people are looking for generic manufacturers as their leasing option, the majority opt for German reliability in the form of Mercedes or BMW, leaving Volkswagen trailing behind, likely as a result of the recent emissions scandal that affected over 1.2million UK diesel vehicles.   LeaseTrends

Tano Di Girolamo, Managing Director of Fulton Leasing, commented: "We've also seen very strong interest in the Range Rover Evoque here at Fulton, particularly with the offers that were able to take to market. Its interesting to see the pick-up in volumes for the A-Class, and that seems to be in line with the deals that are available, particularly for business users. Its also great to see the Kia Sportage in the top 5, because its a really affordable and reliable family car that has taken on the likes of the Qashqai."
