Why buy a used Renault Vel Satis with Exchange and Mart?

Quite how Renault thought the Vel Satis was going to punch a sizeable hole in the sales of the executive elite is a story that may never emerge from the executive boardroom. Competing with the cream of the executive car crop while sporting a mainstream badge had done for a number of better-qualified successors than the Vel Satis down the years and true to form, the big Renault bombed. Despite its almost comical failure, the Vel Satis now makes a fascinating used buy. With deep discounts offered to new buyers, low mileage used cars can be yours for a song and despite the car's poor showing in the sales charts, driving it generates a genuine sense of occasion you'd never experience in, say, a lower order Audi A6.

About the Renault Vel Satis

The Renault Vel Satis makes a surprisingly satisfying used proposition, although many will be content to give the car another year or so for the steepest part of the depreciation curve to take effect. The 2.2-litre dCi model is probably the plum pick, but whichever version you choose, you'll have a car that's not only distinctive but which will also prove a conversation piece. You'll never turn heads in a basic Mercedes E Class but the big Renault still has the ability to draw admiring (?) glances. There's a feeling of bespoke luxury that little under £50,000 can match and for many this will be enough. One suspects Renault's next effort in this sector may look a little more conventional.

Representative finance example

Borrowing £7,500 on a Hire Purchase agreement over 48 months, a representative APR of 18.5% and a deposit of £0.00, the amount repayable would be £216.89 a month, with a total cost of credit of £2,910.72 and a total amount payable of £10,410.72.
