Top five high mileage, low initial payment deals
The latest government figures show that the average UK motorist drives 7,900 miles every year. But forget about the average person. What about those of you who aren’t average?
“My granny does more miles than 8k miles a year,” we often hear from our motorway-munching Facebook fans.
In other immensely popular top five articles (Top five cars for under £200 per month), we’ll also hear: “But’s that’s with a large deposit.”
With that in mind, we gave our hard-working team a monthly budget of up to £350* to pull together some of our favourite vehicles with high mileage allowances and low one-month initial payments. Win-win for some.
So here goes…
Mercedes’ A-Class is perfect for those looking for a premium hatchback, and its classy demeanour is more than just surface deep – even in its most basic form this is a car that’s a perfect place to spend long journeys.
Aside from the interior that oozes class, a wide range of engine options only serve to add to its appeal, all of which are economical and potent. It’s more practical than you might think too – four adults can sit in relative comfort, and a split folding rear seat allows for extra flexibility.
As one of the longest running models in the Audi line-up, the A3 has been around for 20 years now and is a stylish hatchback that allows families to get into the premium sector without sacrificing too much in terms of practicality or money.
Available in a variety of guises – from the two-door cabriolet to the four-door saloon – the A3 offers something for everyone thanks to its fantastic engine response and efficiency as well as its unmatched interior and kit.
Having been one of the most popular cars on the road for over a decade, the Nissan Qashqai’s popularity shows no signs of abating.
The 2018 Nissan Qashqai is as good value and as practical as ever. An updated reminder of why it has remained at the top of the class for the last decade.
Tweaked styling and improved dynamics keep the facelifted Mazda 6 in the game, but it's those naturally aspirated petrol engines that help it stand out.
Range-topping GT Sport Nav+ comes with loads of kit including electrically adjustable and heated seats, a heated steering wheel, head-up display, a 360-degree camera and an impressive 11-speaker Bose sound system.
The VW T-Cross is late to the small crossover party, but while it doesn’t have the quirky looks and styling of some rivals its big boot, airy cabin and quality feel are sure to help it stand out in a crowded market place.
Even better, it offers a decent level of tech in the cabin and shouldn’t cost too much to run.
