First class service received from David and the Team at First Vehicle Finance. You have made the process of arranging our lease plan so straight forward and easy to understand. Thank you so much for all your help. We are delighted with our new car. Kind Regards Dermot Kavanagh
Good Morning Chris
Just reporting back on my new company car I recieved from you yesterday. Very impressed on the model and spec of the car,what is also incredible is that its a bigger engine than my previouse model yet it has a lower emission output.This is good from a tax point but also better for the enviroment.The MPG is also better so that will result in operating cost for the company being lower. I have to say that when my old car was collected it was a bit sad as it had given me 3 years of trouble free motoring.I had not even had to change one single light bulb on the car during that time.Look forward to the next three years of motoring with my new car. Thanks again for all the help with giving me and my colleques all the P11D information for us to send to the HMRC office regarding personal taxation liability and the delivery was right on the day specified.
Hi Will I am currently out the country working, I have been in regular contact with my wife she told me that the transfer of the vehicles went down without a hitch, unfortunately I was in Iraq when this all happened so as yet I have not seen the car in the flesh, but I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help from start to finish of the process, I had a good experience the first time I dealt with you and have had another flawless experience this time and I look forward to dealing with you again in another 3 years thanks agaim Will.
Will kept my details on file and contacted me as soon as a deal became available on a car closest to my specification. After that, the whole process was pain free.
I had dealt with First Vehicle Finance before and on both occasions I have found the service to be excellent. They listen to the requirements and deliver.
First Vehicle Finance Ltd and David Linsdell (our Account Manager) have been an absolute pleasure to deal with. We needed a new pool car for our business and selected a Smart car. We received 3 quotes from lease hire companies (2 were on our network preferred supplier list) and First Vehicle had the best quote; significantly cheaper monthly costs, more choice of model and the best delivery date. The whole process has been efficient and extremely professional and we have been very impressed with the personal attention to detail displayed by David and First Vehicle. I would sincerely recommend them as the Vehicle Lease company of choice, and have urged our franchise network to adopt them as a preferred supplier.

First Vehicle Finance Ltd and Richard couldn't have been more helpful. My wife had a very specific car in mind and a set monthly budget and Richard took a great deal of time in helping to explain all of the finance options, helping every step of the way in making sure we got our perfect car and under budget! The process was made very easy and the service was fantastic to the extent that I am now looking to finance a car for myself with First Vehicle! Highly recommend!
I would like to thank Chris Fairchild and Juliet Whitmore for their efficient and friendly service. Their experience and care showed, I now drive the car I wanted, within the budget I had in mind and am glad to say the whole process was painless. Many thanks and all the best! Will definitely recommend.
The car arrived today and I just want to say 'thank you' for your work and your support in getting it to me ready for my move on Saturday. You made it very easy for me and gave me confidence throughout that it was all under control.
I really appreciate you doing all of this and wish you a great Easter weekend.
All the very best
I Received my Volvo V40 R Design today and could not be happier. The car has more than met my expectations, but just as important the service from you has been impeccable throughout. From the initial very competitive quote, all the way through to the delivery today was a pleasure that I could not fault in any way. Keep up the exceptional work, Thanks a lot.
On a steep, off-road slope, the X5 xDrive’s standard Hill Descent Control allows you to creep down safely. The GLC doesn’t offer Hill Descent Control.When you lease a BMW X5 as an optional extra you can ask for is a passive infrared night vision system. This helps the driver to more easily detect people, animals or other objects in front of the vehicle at night. Using an infrared camera to detect heat, the system then displays the image on a monitor in the dashboard. The GLC doesn’t offer a night vision system.Both the X5 and the GLC have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available all-wheel drive, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and driver alert monitors.When leasing the BMW X5 it might be interesting to know that the BMW X5 is a heavy vehicle and heavier than the Mercedes GLC. It is advised that heavier vehicles are much safer in accidents than lighter vehicles.
Economy and RangeAfter testing the BMW X5 xDrive35d rated better on fuel mileage than the GLC 300 4MATIC .Regenerative brakes improve the X5’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The GLC doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.The X5 has 22 Litres more fuel capacity than the GLC making for much longer journey's in-between filling up.
Tyres and Wheels
The BMW X5 has larger standard tyres and hence has better traction – than compared to the Merc GLC. Due to the BMW X5's 19 inches wheels verses the GLC's 18 inches wheels the BMW X5 is a better drive and has better handling and brake cooling.
Suspension, Off Road and Handling
The X5 has an adjustable active suspension system, which counteracts cornering forces actively, limiting body roll and improving handling and stability. Mercedes doesn’t offer an active suspension on the GLC.The X5 is a smoother drive compared to the Merc GLC – this is due to the extra 2.4 inches on the wheelbase. The BMW X5 has a higher clearance off the ground by 1.5 inches, allowing the X5 to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.
The X5 has 2 extra seats in the back while the GLC doesn’t not have this capacity but can be added as an optional extra.
The X5’s cargo area provides more volume than the GLC.
When winter roles round and windscreens freeze over the X5 has heated windshield washer nozzles. These are standard on the X5 to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. Heated windshield washer nozzles can be added as at an extra cost when leasing the Mercedes GLC.To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the BMW X5 has a standard rear variable intermittent wiper with a full on position. The rear wiper standard on the GLC only has an intermittent setting, so in a hard rain visibility isn’t as good.In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The X5 offers available headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The GLC doesn’t offer headlight washers.
We would recommend leasing both the BMW X5 and the Mercedes GLC, based on reliability, safety and performance.In 2017 The BMW X5 was a more popular car choice amoungst those that lease and leased the Mercedes GLC by 10% during the 2017 model year.
