Guaranteed Future Value (GFV)

What is Guaranteed Future Value (GFV) when it comes to buying a car? Put simply, GFV is a finance product whereby the lender or its agent gives you an agreed value for your vehicle at the end of your finance term, regardless of its true depreciation, i.e. free from influence of any market changes.

What makes this such an inticing finance option for new car buyers is that at the end of the finance term, while you’ll have potentially paid a lower weekly/monthly amount than through other finance plans, you’ll have the option to either:

  1. Pay the final ‘balloon’ payment – the GFV amount – and own the vehicle outright
  2. Give the car back to the dealership for the guaranteed amount
  3. Trade-in the vehicle for a new model and start a new GFV finance plan

Guaranteed Future Value is very common in countries like the UK where it’s more commonly known as a Personal Contract Plan (PCP). In fact, Audi say that 80% of their UK customers choose Audi PCP. Other brands may refer to this as Assured Future Value.

Audi Future Value Guarantee is a finance option that gives Audi buyers flexibility and assurance from the moment they drive away in their new Audi… and the next one.

Not only will customers have the certainty of low fixed repayments, they’ll also have the option to renew, retain or return their car at the end of their agreed term. Plus, they can renew at any time, allowing them to enjoy a new Audi more often.

AFVG is available across the entire new Audi range. Terms and conditions as well as lending criteria apply. More details here.
