There are a number of finance options available for buyers looking at purchasing a brand-new BMW at the moment. In fact, there are 37 Personal Contract Hire Finance Offers available. Two examples are the BMW 118i 5-door M Sport Sports Hatch available for a monthly rental of £239 including VAT, with an initial rental of £4,329 including VAT; and the BMW 218i Sport Active Tourer, monthly rental of £309 including VAT, with an initial rental of £4,069 including VAT.

BMW’s 218i Active Tourer marks a radical departure for the German mark, but bringing this weight of talent to the compact MPV sector will have some other rivals very worried. The 218i model would seem to make the most sense for British customers. It’s well-equipped, it’s keenly priced and it brings a welcome touch of dynamism to a sector where many car makers have done quite well offering substandard fare. It looks like a few of them will have to seriously up their games from this point on.

The BMW Hire Purchase option involves a deposit plus monthly payments. And there is the BMW Select (PCP) which is a deposit with monthly payments and optional final payment. One example is the BMW 320i M Sport Saloon with monthly payments of £279 on a customer deposit of £6,129 with a Representative APR of 2.9%.

The improved sixth-generation of the astonishingly successful 3 Series offers low emissions and almost unfeasible fuel economy. It demonstrates the discreet genius in building a modern compact executive car. It’s always enjoyable when a car turns out to be better than expected and this model has kicked on and placed genuine distance between itself and the best of its rivals. BMW has produced what might just be the most impressive ‘real world’ car on the market.

BMW also have some 0% Business Contract Hire Finance Offers as well as the BMW Business Partnership Offers from Alphabet Fleet Finance available too. Check them out at your local BMW dealership. Terms and conditions apply.
