Top five low deposit car leasing deals
Car finance usually requires some form of large upfront payment, and with leasing that has traditionally involved an initial rental of three, six or nine months. Until now…
As the UK’s number one leasing website, we’ve noticed a surge in demand for low initial payment deals. In fact, we think one-month initial payments could change the face of the leasing sector.
To give you an example of some deals, we’ve been checking out the most popular lease cars available with a one-month initial payment*.
To keep things clear, we’ve allowed ourselves a sensible budget of up to £250 per month, and that one-month initial payment excludes any additional document fees. Without further ado, here’s our top pickings…
The Volkswagen Golf is ContractHireAndLeasing.com’s most popular car, and for good reason – decades of development makes it one of the most reliable, well-built and practical hatchbacks out there. Thanks to a recent facelift, the current MK7 is a bit of a looker too.
A plethora of excellent petrol and diesel engines make the Golf a class-leader on the road too, but let’s not forget the increasingly popular GTE hybrid, but that’s been so popular you might have to wait a while to get your hands on one.
Put simply, if you’re after a hatchback that’s good to drive, fantastically well-built and has room for the family, you can stop scrolling now – the Golf is the car for you.
Crossovers are an increasingly popular choice for many families thanks to their commanding driving position, added practicality and chunky look.The Nissan Qashqai’s popularity took off as soon as it launched back in 2008, and a decade later it remains the go-to choice for many.
When you look at the prices, it’s little wonder – mid-range N-Connecta versions that feature a seven-in infotainment screen, satnav, 18in alloy wheels and a 360-degree surround view camera are available for less than £250 per month with a one-month initial rental.
While the new A-Class is the Mercedes currently hitting the headlines, it’s not as practical as a family proposition as the GLA-Class. A high-end interior and excellent ride comfort make this an appealing alternative to cars like the Audi Q2, especially considering its price point.
There’s a range of economical petrol and diesels on offer, with even the petrol-powered 1.6-litre entry-level model offering up to 47mpg.
The T-Roc is Volkswagen’s latest SUV, and under the skin it uses the same engine line-up as the Golf. The key difference, however, is the T-Roc wraps up that famed quality in a contemporary crossover package, offering just that little bit extra practicality.
You’ll find 445 litres of boot space, for example, while its customisation options and original interior design make it stand out, not only next to rivals, but also within Volkswagen’s own range.
If you’re looking for a five-door family car with a bit of originality, look no further than the Mini Hatchback. It gets the same stand-out style of the smaller car, but is a much more sensible proposition if you regularly carry rear passengers.
As well as being a little niche, it’s also rather high-end when it comes to fit and finish. The best bit? One can be had for way less than £250 per month, even when that low, one-month deposit is taken into account.
