Top five cars for around £100 per month
Leasing makes sense for a lot of reasons. It doesn’t matter if you’re after an executive saloon or a super-frugal supermini – if your main aim is to drive a new car and keep costs to an absolute minimum, we host thousands of deals that’ll help you get behind the wheel.
But what if you want to really keep costs down? What’s on offer if you’ve around £100 per month to spend?
To help you out, we also had a look at five cars we’d choose – we’ve allowed ourselves a maximum budget of £125 per month. To keep things very clear, there will always also be an initial upfront payment, and the offers are based on a mileage limit. So, what exactly is available for this kind of monthly payment?
Offering SUV practicality with the perks of a regular hatchback (namely cheap to run, affordable to lease, and practical for a family), it’s safe to say Kia have hit it out of the park with their latest model.
The Kia XCeed is longer and taller than the regular Ceed with the added bonus of higher round clearance giving it a tougher off-road stance. Updates have also been made to the interior, where there’s been an influx of new technology including Kia’s newest 10.25-inch touchscreen.
The Vauxhall Corsa is a stylish, practical and good value supermini that’s one of the few models to still be available in three or five-door guise.
It has been a consistent best-seller for many years and is a solid choice for a lease car if keeping costs down and getting from A to B are your main concerns.
It’s hard to believe the Fiat 500’s renaissance started a decade ago, but the very first versions of the reborn supermini arrived in the UK in 2007. It remains a firm favourite thanks to that retro appeal and of course some truly competitive pricing.
If you’re after a cute city car, look no further. It’s a fantastic companion in town, but it doesn’t feel out of place on the open road either, with a range of engines that are as perky as they are economical.
Compared to many rivals, the new Kia Picanto is the complete package. Okay, the price is great but many also lack the visual flair and charm of the Kia.
The engine is eager to give up its power, and that makes swift progress reasonably easy, with low-speed handling exemplary and offering a level of agility that’s lacking from many rivals. In fact, it’s probably our favourite city car.
Having been on sale since 2014, and with a mild update recently, the Toyota Aygo remains a reliable and smart looking supermini.
The Aygo is competitive on space and performance as well as economy with others on this list, and its styling might be enough to sway you.
