What should I be paying?
People point out that mass-market Fords depreciate more than premium BMWs, but in the end the Ford is still much cheaper to own. The new price is much less and equipment better. Paying for it, by lease or outright, is going to be a whole lot cheaper. So will be the company car tax, thanks to Ford’s tight control of CO2 emissions (even the 150bhp 2.0-litre diesel is sub-110g/km). There’s a Ford dealer on every corner. There’s lots of safety kit too, which is good for lowering insurance.
