Small pick up trucks vehicle - advice needed
The range of cars below can be leased through my business as a work Van and thus I can get tax benefit and VAT back etc.

Has anyone on here leased any of the below:

- Nissan navarra
- Ford Ranger
- VW Amarok
- Toyota Hilux
- Mitzubishi L200
- Fiat Full Back

They all range in price - haven't really got a clue which one would be best to lease.

cheers

Had a look at an 2009 X5 today. Actually very nice. Pretty big inside.

But bmw drivers are usually arseholes so

Any Ulrika Jonsson will use a lot of fuel . Think 22/26 MPG .

If you want a larger car then go the usual BMW/Merc/Volvo route.

Re: Small pick up trucks vehicle - advice needed
Was considering the L200 but don’t necessarily need the truck capability...just the size. Too juicy though.

Anyone had a BMW X5??

This is a subject I know well - usual error in that, no insult intended, your focus is all about the hardware, the vehicle

You would be well advised to interogate the 'lease'; mileage, maintenance inclusion, RFL, terms of return condition and that's before early termination penalty

Be careful, employee/contract schemes whilst not necessarily a bad deal, frequently include a kick back and give them 'lock in' with the lessee

The tax position I am entirely conversant with,but in the interests of not spammimg the thread with a touch of reality above which truck bounces best, I'll call a halt

PM me if you want and I can advise accordingly

I’ve got a fully loaded Amorak that I’m going to sell what year you looking for. Lovely motor and great drive I just don’t use it anymore

The VW is the most car like & comfortable, but as you've identified will most likely be the priciest as well..
Have recently driven, the VW, Nissan & Mitsubishi, not a lot between the other two, personally preference was the Nissan, I'm considering getting one again but as mentioned, very juicy, people do bring up about the Nissan reliability but I guess if it's leased & getting handed back after 3 or so years reliability isn't likely to be an issue for you..

Bought mine 2 years old, aventura auto, used to cost £110 from empty to brim, lasted 4 days, approximately 20-25k annual.
Got it for the same reasons your looking,was nice and comfortable with everything on it but when I first bought it home the wife looked at me and said - are you having a mid life crisis.
?

Must admit I looked at the truck and thought maybe.

I think my Silverado was 15 mpg but then again, gas is cheap as chips in the US

Re: Small pick up trucks vehicle - advice needed
Had a Navara for 3 years, was very thirsty - maybe 21 mpg even driving carefully. Was like paying me tax bill on drip each time I filled it up.

Re: Small pick up trucks vehicle - advice needed

Thanks mate ! The VW is £125 extra per month aswell so I think all roads are leading to the Hilux !!

I used a Hi-Lux for 6 years In Malaysia. I did a of mileage there up and down a 250k project

Re: Small pick up trucks vehicle - advice needed
When I was looking at this and did some research, the VW is the most refined in your list, and the cheapest is the L200/Fiat which are exactly the same car but with different badges on.

So if you want the best, most car like ride, go the VW.

If you want cheapest see the best deal you can get between the Fiat and the L200.

If you want the most "true pickup" experience and to help with cost and refinement ai believe the Toyota is the pick
Nissan and Ford both had bad reliability and had little to make them stand out.

I drive a Toyota Land Cruiser at work, it's a beast of a motor.

If you are small don't try and pick up trucks

Re: Small pick up trucks vehicle - advice needed
If it’s going to be used as a car get the most comfy one .

An old boss had an X5 and got vat etc back on it as it had 7 seats .

maverick 1:21 Tue Oct 2
Re: Small pick up trucks vehicle - advice needed
i'll be using it as a car primarily - these are the only motors I can fit my family into and still get the tax wrote off - if I lease a merc estate or something it would go down as earnings and I'd be taxed on it instead of it being a business cost.

So in reality I aint going to be needing these for off road or load capability just wanted to know if anyone has any of them and what they were like to run etc.

Looks like the hilux Is the winner and few other people have said as much !

Re: Small pick up trucks vehicle - advice needed
Assuming youre not going to the pole, reguarly off roading or looking to destory it then just get the cheapest/best deal and choose that.

And avoid the Fiat

Re: Small pick up trucks vehicle - advice needed
As a car they are all shit and will cost a fortune in fuel.
As a truck - the Toyota.

Re: Small pick up trucks vehicle - advice needed
Yeah if you're going on safari or hill climbing then a Toyota Land Cruiser is the way to go
