How much do you spend on your morning coffee and lunch every day? £5? Maybe more? Well, for the same kind of sum you could be driving a brand-new car. Don’t believe it? Neither did we – until we did the maths…

365 x £5.00 = £1,825 per year. Divide that by 12, that gives you a monthly budget of just over £152. When it comes to leasing, that can go further than you think.

To make things very clear, our £5.00 maximum daily budget does not take into account the initial upfront rental, insurance, fuel etc, and offers will always include a mileage allowance. With that in mind, we’ve picked five great cars that’ll cost you not much more than a latte and a lunchtime meal deal…

Volkswagen Up

Volkswagen up

Volkswagen’s very own pocket rocket, the Up offers drivers a fun compact city car that offers maximum space on a minimal footprint.

With four specification levels – Take up!, Move up!, High up! and up! beats – and 999 cc three-cylinder petrol engine available in various states of tune, you’ll find few cars that offer this much kit and fun for this price.

Vauxhall Mokka X

If you’re after a practical, everyday runaround that’s exceedingly good value, then the Mokka X should certainly be on your shortlist. It’s also one of the best-value vehicles on Leasing.com according to our value score, which has seen its popularity shoot up in 2019.

Renault Clio

Renault Clio

Despite a surge in the popularity of its SUVs, the most popular Renault remains the ubiquitous Clio. Why? It’s fun to drive, offers great value and a wide range of trim levels means there’s something to suit everyone, including those with a budget of less than £5 per day.

Kia Picanto

Picanto 002

It’s no surprise that the Kia Picanto is our city car of choice. Compared to others in the segment, the Kia Picanto is the complete package thanks to its sharp styling, excellent running costs and a level of agility and low-speed handling that’s lacking from many rivals.

Good things come in small packages, and the Picanto is proof positive of that old adage.

Nissan Juke

Due an imminent replacement, now is an ideal time to get a great deal on the outgoing Nissan Juke.

Perpetually popular on the road, and with enticing prices such as this popular with lessees too, the Nissan Juke has had a steady stream of success since its launch.

Bright and playful handling, the Juke is more fun to drive than any of its immediate rivals and with its unique design one of the most recognisable cars out there.
