What Are The Key Features

3 YEARS' FINANCE
The Personal Contract Finance product has a full term of 36 months, with 35 monthly payments followed by 1 optional final payment.

3 YEARS' COMPREHENSIVE MOTOR INSURANCE
With Citroën SimplyDrive your motor insurance policy will be automatically renewed to ensure you benefit from three years continuous cover (subject to underwriting criteria). Better still, your premium will remain fixed for the duration of your contract. (We do reserve the right to increase your premium should you add a younger driver to your policy mid-term).

3 YEARS' ROUTINE SERVICING

3 YEARS' ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE

3 YEARS' ROAD FUND LICENCE (IF APPLICABLE)
Your first year’s road fund licence is included and your dealership will give you a cheque to cover the costs of years two and three (based on current duty rates at time of purchase).

3 YEARS' WARRANTY
Just in case...

3 YEARS' PAYMENT WAIVER
In the unfortunate event of you being made redundant involuntarily, Citroën Financial Services will waive up to 6 monthly instalments giving you time to find alternative employment. If you are still unemployed after 6 waived instalments you are given the option to hand your vehicle back without further financial liability. (Subject to terms and conditions).

ALL FOR ONE MONTHLY PAYMENT

How Citroën SimplyDrive Works

  • Select the Citroën or DS vehicle that’s right for you.
  • Choose your annual mileage (6,000 to 30,000).
  • Select the amount you wish to contribute as a deposit (between 0% and 40% of the vehicle price).
  • We will calculate the monthly payment for the full 3 year term of the agreement.
  • Your monthly payment will include a contribution towards the cost of your motor insurance. This is based on the age of the youngest driver, your residential postcode and model selected.

Additional charges may apply at the end of the contract subject to the vehicle condition and excess mileage.
