Top five cars you can lease for under £100 a month
There are many reasons why leasing makes a lot of sense, whether you’re after an executive saloon or a super-frugal supermini, but if your main aim is to drive a new car and keep costs to an absolute minimum, there’s a wealth of personal contract hire deals that enable you to get behind the wheel of a new car for less than £100 per month.
To keep things very clear, there will always also be an initial upfront payment, and the offers are based on a mileage limit.
To help you out, we’ve also had a look at five cars you can currently lease for under £100 per month (week commencing 02/01/17). So, what exactly could you get?
The VW Up shares a platform with its nigh-on identical siblings, the Seat Mii and the Skoda Citigo. However, it’s always going to be the German badge that’s the most sought after, and the good news is you can currently lease one for less than £100 per month!
Interior fittings are up to Volkswagen’s usual impeccable standards and despite its city car size, 251 litres of boot space means it can almost rival the Ford Fiesta in terms of luggage carrying capacity. What’s more, the frugal 1.0-litre petrol engine means it’ll return over 60mpg.
If you were assuming all the least expensive deals focus on tiny city cars, this entry might turn your head; that’s right, a spacious, five-door Skoda Fabia currently could cost less than £100 per month.
A frugal 1.0-litre turbocharged engine means up to 60mpg is on the cards, which will help reduce your monthly outgoings even further.
Compared to its two sister cars – the Peugeot 108 and Toyota Aygo – the Citroen C1 is one of the most recognisable superminis on the road and, with a perky 1.2-litre engine and standard infotainment system, it isn’t hard to see why.
If we’re honest though, it might also have something to do with its attractive pricing, especially when it comes to lease deals. The C1 is one of the most frequent fixtures in the sub-£100 per month category, as are the nigh-on identical 108 and Aygo.
Ah, the Fiat 500. Still as trendy as ever, but nowhere near as costly as it once was, the famed ‘Cinquecento’ has a retro charm the majority of news cars just can’t pull off. Its tech and drivetrains however, are anything but retro.
Low emissions and super-frugality is the order of the day with the 500, thanks to a either a 0.9-litre or 1.2-litre petrol engines, the latter of which can muster over 70mpg.
If you’re after something good looking and spacious, there’s the Seat Ibiza currently available. It’s roomier than the smaller Mii, but thanks to some great deals, at the moment it’s actually cheaper!
In five-door form, it’s a great small family car, while thanks to its Volkswagen Group underpinnings it’s fantastically well put together, with overall build quality on par with much pricier alternatives.
