More and more B-class
In the first period of private leasing, small, compact cars with relatively low monthly amounts were particularly popular. These cars fall in the A-class and you pay on average € 200, – per month. Yet there is a shift from the smaller cars to the larger and the more luxurious cars from the B and C class. For this you lose € 400, – per month on average and are attractive with a longer duration. Volkswagen is the most chosen brand for a loan car, followed by Fiat and Peugeot . The Fiat 500 is the most chosen loan car of 2016.
