Best cars for under £200 per month
Looking to score a new car for under £200 a month? You’re in good company. It’s a very popular price point when it comes to leasing. Needless to say, you’ll be surprised at what you could lease for less than £200 a month, you could even be driving a Mercedes-Benz for that price.
To keep things very clear, there will always also be an initial upfront payment, and the offers are based on a mileage limit, but if you want to drive a new car – whether that’s a sporty hatchback, an executive saloon or a rugged SUV – while not breaking the bank here are five cars that caught our eye and made us think “Wow, I didn’t think that would be so cheap…”
There’s a reason why the Ford Focus is one of the most popular cars in the UK. It’s an all-rounder that ticks off all the boxes for a family car, including affordability. The styling is sharp and fresh and whichever trim and model you choose, you’ll not be disappointed. It’s also the most fun car to drive in the market, even the estate version.
The Nissan Qashqai is one of the UK’s most popular cars and can claim to be one of the first models that kicked off the crossover trend. It’s a consistently popular lease thanks to an abundance of standard equipment and excellent build quality.
The Volkswagen T-Roc takes the best attributes of the Golf and wraps them up in a desirable SUV-style package. It’s a stylish car and feels much more premium than rivals like the Hyundai Kona.
A host of great engines are on offer too – from the 1.0 TSI to the potent 2.0-litre diesel, there will be something to fit the bill for everyone. Standard equipment is impressive too, with all models featuring an 8in touchscreen infotainment system, 16in allow wheels and dual-zone climate control.
Now hear us out here. Yes, the plucky Renault Zoe may not be a car to set pulses racing, but you can currently get it for less than £200 a month. Yes, that’s right, a proper electric compact hatchback for less than £200 a month. There are a range of battery options available that a re perfect for city driving. The centre console now features a 9.3in vertical touchscreen which controls the main functions of the vehicle and can also be paired with smartphones. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard too. A 10in instrument cluster is now standard across the range. It’s a tech-filled little gem.
