Black Friday: Best car leasing deal tips, advice and offers
Sale events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday might be popular for marketeers, but according to a recent report, up to 98% of Black Friday deals were actually cheaper at some stage during the last 12 months.
Which? revealed that out of 83 products the organisation tracked at major retailers, just four were cheaper than at other times in the year. That’s right. Just 5% of times were cheaper on Black Friday.
With that in mind, it’s worth remembering that marketing events for big ticket items like cars might not all they are cracked up to be either.
You may or may not know that just before a number plate change is one of the ideal times for you to find a cracking offer, or when dealers are looking to hit their end-of-quarter performance bonuses.
Despite a rise in new and used car prices, leasing remains one of the most cost-effective ways of getting behind the wheel of a new car. And at Leasing.com, we bring you the UK’s best leasing deals all year round.
This Black Friday, we’ve collated a list of pointers that’ll ensure you get a great deal – whether you’re looking for a car on Black Friday – or any of the other 364 days in the year.
Dream deals. All year round.
We’re the biggest, the best lease deal comparison site in the UK, with thousands of deals from the country’s leading brokers, leasing companies, dealers and car manufacturers all under one roof. As such, you can be assured Leasing.com is the first and only place you should visit to compare the market.
We’ve recently made a number of changes that help you scout out the best deals – Black Friday or otherwise. So what changes have we made?
Search by value
We've developed an advanced algorithm to give every one of the offers on our site a score out of ten, which you can use to compare deals and rank them. Put simply, the higher the score, the better the deal.
So, if you're looking for a bargain, or want to know if you're getting value for money, just check the score.

Find your dream car tool
This year we launched our all-new and unique Find My Dream Car tool. We carried out a survey and found that the majority of people in the market for a new car don’t particularly know the car they want. That’s a great place to start, because the more open your mind, the more likely you are to get a great deal.
Our new tool asks you a few simple questions and will find the cars – and deals – that suit your needs best. Once you’ve filtered through the questions, you’ll end up with a selection of models with real-time monthly and total costs available to compare. Try it yourself by hitting the button below.
Top trending deals
The Leasing.com top trending car lease deals article uses an algorithm to collect historical and current search data. This analyses what people are looking at on the site in real-time and when it spots a trend it will showcase the hottest car leasing deals on the #trendingdeals panel.
Search by budget
Another recent change we’ve made is adding a “search by budget” option, allowing you to hop right into the thousands of deals that are relevant for you. Below, we’ve outlined our most popular budget searches and included an example of a vehicle for each one.
Low-cost car leasing
If you’re looking for a true bargain, a low-cost car leasing option could be for you. With a range of compact city cars and hatchbacks available from as little as £150 per month, you can get behind the wheel of a brand-new car for the same amount (or even less) than many second-hand PCP deals.
Models like the Nissan Micra, Kia Picanto and even the practical Kia Stonic are on offer – click on the button below to check out the very best low-cost car leasing plans.

Deals under £200 p/m
You might be surprised at the kind of cars you can get for less than £200 per month. As well as a wider range of cars – including crossovers and small SUVs – most of them get features such as touchscreen infotainment systems and the very latest in safety tech.
One of our picks would be the Volkswagen T-Cross. Practical and premium, it’s a great alternative to cars like the Nissan Juke and Ford Puma – which also fall into this price bracket. Check then all out by clicking the button below.
Deals under £300 p/m
With a monthly budget up to £300, you can get a seriously impressive family car that’s full of tech and offers the latest clean hybrid and mild-hybrid drivetrains. A well-specified version of the new Nissan Qashqai is just one example.
If you want to go all-electric, that’s also a viable option for this amount. Models like the Citroen e-C4 and Kia e-Niro are both on offer.
Deals under £400 p/m
For up to £400 per month, you can bag yourself a truly premium model. Whether it’s the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series or the Audi A6, all are on offer with fantastic rental profiles for this kind of money.
