I think I'm now settled on a 1.6T VX Line in Summit White with the parking sensors and possibly intellilux.
Have you seen them in person just I was always buying White when looking at the pictures on line but when I saw them in the flesh White became my third choice....Blue followed closely by Silver viewtopic.php?f=10&t=3955&p=35240#p35240 my comments on the other colurs in this thread...but just my opinion. :D :D

Thanks moleyjoel, that's really helpful all round.
Those options look great but they don't half bump the price up. Think I would like the intellilux. Also considering comfort access for £400.

Thanks Bruce225. It'll be a few months before I actually buy so just researching at the moment. And only seen online pics so far but will definitely go to a dealer to see in the flesh.

Don't think the 1.6t is an option due to likely fuel costs and lack of nearly new availability. No way I am going new but I do like that blue. My company car Kia Cee'd 1.4 diesel currently reports 59.6 mpg. My mileage is mixed with no motorways close by and I am fairly considered when driving it for business which is the bulk of my mileage so what can I expect from the 1.6 diesel?

I thought that till I saw the deals that can be had.
25% off list price immediately. 3 year warranty, no bills etc.
How many miles do you do S1m0n if you don't do motorways? Bear in mind diesels are attracting more and more penalties in tax and potential town/city bans.

Around 18k per year. Been offered a new SRI for £17719 but don't want to take the depreciation hit really. Think the nearly new option is by far the better deal.

Yep, that's quite a lot then.
Agree, I would really rather buy nearly new to avoid the worst of the depreciation and you get more for your money. Unfortunately, the 1.6t's are so rare. I have a few months to save up still and think about what I want.
