Best new car deals – weekly (updated: 05/02/16)

If you like the look of the new Honda CR-V, you might be interested to read that Honda is currently offering the car on a three-year PCP deal for £209 per month with a deposit contribution of £500. That leaves you with a deposit of £6,558, which you can lower if you can afford slightly higher monthly payments. This example applies to the 1.6-litre diesel model in SE Navi trim but other models are also eligible.

Monthly payments Deposit Deposit contribution List price Total payable APR

The Renault Twingo is an excellent city car and Renault have several models available on PCP finance deals that require very low deposits. For example, the Twingo Play SCe 70 is £139 per month after a deposit of the same amount, and Renault will contribute £680 to the cost of the car.

We heard in the news this week that Ford's luxurious Vignale range will expand over the next two years but for now there is just one model available - the Mondeo Vignale. Ford are currently offering £700 towards the cost of a deposit on the 1.5-litre diesel model if you go for a low interest three-year PCP deal. That leaves you with a deposit of £6,902 followed by 36 monthly payments of £299.

Deals from brokers

It's always worth checking with reputable car brokers to see if you can get the model you’re after for less. After trawling the web, we’ve found some great deals:

Buyacar.co.uk is offering the Volvo V40 D2 in ES trim with a total saving of £5,096 off its RRP of £21,345. The cost of the car works out at £16,249 if you take out PCP finance with Buyacar, and this gets you a £250 deposit contribution and monthly payments of £208. You'll need a deposit of £1,874.

The same site has the new Volvo XC90 in D5 R Design form with £1,705 off the RRP. It would ordinarily be £49,785 but is £48,080 on the site.

Broadspeed has offers on the Fiat Panda. You can get the TwinAir 0.9-litre petrol model in Lounge trim for £9,407, rather than £11,875.

Carfile currently has offers on the Nissan Qashqai range. For example, the 1.2-litre DiG-T petrol model in Visia trim is £16,511 instead of £18,545.

Best new car deals – quarterly

UK car sales are the strongest they've been in a decade, which means the competition between manufacturers to sell you a car has never been stiffer.

Citroen will contribute £1,500 to the cost of the deposit, leaving you with £4,223 to pay at the start of the deal.

Dacia deals

Dacia launched several finance offers to coincide with the launch of the latest 65-plate registration period and they all include deposit contributions and an extended warranty.

If you buy a Sandero supermini, Logan MCV estate, or Sandero Stepway compact crossover in any of the trims above entry-level Access, Dacia will contribute £500 towards your deposit. Buyers of the Dacia Duster SUV will benefit from a deposit contribution of £750. All models come with a five-year/60,000 mile warranty.

Fiat deals

If you're looking for a small car with five-door practicality and a stylish interior, then you could do worse than looking at the Fiat Panda. The Panda Pop 1.2-litre petrol can be yours for £7,925 on a finance deal. You pay a deposit of £749 and 48 monthly instalments of £99.

A deal that's scheduled to expire at the end of March is Ford's two year finance offer on the Ford Mondeo. You can get the 113bhp 1.5-litre diesel model in Titanium trim for £269 per month, including a deposit contribution of £700 from Ford. That leaves you with an initial £6,012 to pay and the choice at the end of the three years to buy the car for £11,410 or return it to Ford.

Monthly payments Deposit Deposit contribution List price Total payable APR
23 x £269 £6,012 £700 £24,340 £23,898 0.9%

Hyundai deals

If you’re looking for a city car, you may want to consider the Hyundai i10. The Korean manufacturer is currently offering the car in 1.0-litre Premium trim for £89 per month at 0% APR. A deposit of £3,824 will secure you the low monthly payments and at the end of the two-year plan you can buy the car outright for £4,815. The Premium model features alloy wheels, air-conditioning and LED daytime running lights. If you don’t have money for a deposit, Hyundai will contribute £500 towards the car and you’ll pay £187 per month, though APR increases to 6.9% and you’ll pay for the car over 49 months rather than 25.

Jaguar deals

The excellent Jaguar XE, a genuine rival to the class-leading BMW 3 Series, is available on a PCP deal for £329 per month. The three-year deal requires an initial deposit of £5,999 after a £1,910 contribution from Jaguar. That gets you the entry-level 2.0-litre diesel model in Prestige trim.

Monthly payments Deposit Deposit contribution List price Total payable APR
36 x £329 £5,999 £1,910 £30,755 £33,497 4.9%

Jeep deals

The new Jeep Cherokee is a rare sight on UK roads, which could explain the savings currently being offered. The car is available on a PCP deal with 0% APR as well as a £3,000 deposit contribution. The offer breaks down to a deposit of £4,699 followed by 48 instalments of £299 on the 185bhp 2.2-litre Longitude Plus Automatic 4x4 model.

Kia deals

The Kia Picanto was one of Kia's first class leaders, but it's getting on a bit now. So to keep sales healthy, Kia has reduced the price of the well equipped Kia Picanto SR7 by £1,000 – it now costs £7,895. Equipment includes rear parking sensors, alloy wheels and a Bluetooth phone connection. On a PCP deal it costs just £99 per month.

Land Rover deals

The Range Rover Evoque is actually four years old now, but the design has aged well and is still a good proposition for those taking their first step on the ladder of Range Rover ownership. Land Rover is currently offering the 2.0-litre TD4 SE Tech auto model for £399 per month if you can stump up a deposit of £7,670. At the end of three years, you can return the car to Range Rover or pay £19,632 to own the car outright.

Monthly payments Deposit Deposit contribution List price Total payable APR
36 x £399 £7,670 - £36,600 £41,666 6.9%

Mazda deals

We really like the new Mazda MX-5 here at Carbuyer, awarding the car 4.5 out of 5 stars when we reviewed it. If you’re in the market for fun, open-top motoring that won’t cost the earth, you should seriously consider the MX-5.

Mazda is doing its bit to help buying one even more appealing by allowing you to order one on a Conditional Sale deal. If you can stump up a 50% deposit, you can pay the rest in monthly installments over three years at 0% APR. Alternatively, the car is available on a PCP deal for a period of up to 37 months with no minimum deposit.

Mercedes deals

If you rack up a lot of miles and need a comfortable large saloon car, the Mercedes E-Class is a perfect choice thanks to its cushioning ride, economical diesel engine and smooth seven-speed automatic gearbox. Buy the car through Mercedes Personal Finance and the company will contribute £7,773, leaving you to pay a deposit of £4,999 and 36 monthly instalments of £349

Monthly payments Deposit Deposit contribution List price Total payable APR

Monthly payments Deposit Deposit contribution List price Total payable APR

Mitsubishi deals

Mitsubishi has introduced deals across many of the models in its current range, including the ASX crossover, the L200 and the Outlander PHEV.

Every single model in the ASX lineup is now available with a £1,000 deposit contribution, meaning the entry-level 1.6-litre petrol model in ZC trim is available for £169 per month. We recommend going for the 1.6-litre diesel if possible, which is £200 per month, as the diesel engine is more refined and economical.

Monthly payments Deposit Deposit contribution List price Total payable APR
43 x £169 £3,784 £1,000 £15,434 £26,055 5.7%

Nissan deals

The second-generation Nissan Qashqai is one of the best crossover models on the market and you can currently get a range-topping TEKNA dCi 130 version for £219 per month on a PCP finance deal at 0% APR. You can secure the 25 monthly payments after a deposit of £7,528.

Renault deals

Renault is doing several deals on its cars, including a whopping £5,109 deposit contribution to the Renault Zoe in Dynamique Nav trim.  That means your monthly payments for the electric car could be as low as £89 per month with a deposit of £995.

Monthly payments Deposit Deposit contribution List price Total payable APR
24 x £89 £995 £5,109 £15,045 £15,691 3.9%

Seat deals

The SEAT Mii is one of our favourite city cars. We think it's more stylish than the Skoda Citigo, a car with which it shares many parts, and it comes with more equipment too. The three-door SEAT Mii by MANGO model currently on offer comes with a 1.0-litre petrol engine, 15-inch alloy wheels and air-conditioning. The 0% APR PCP deal SEAT is offering means you pay nothing in interest over three years. A deposit of £3,193 leaves you to pay £85 per month, with an optional final payment of £4,986.

36 x £85 £3,193 - £11,155 £11,155 0%

Smart deals

The Skoda Citigo is our top city car, but the Smart ForTwo is arguably more appealing to younger drivers and even better suited to life in the city. The Smart ForTwo Grandstyle is even better looking than the standard car thanks to its all-black finish and it comes with a dealer contribution of £936. That leaves you to pay a deposit of £1,599 and 36 monthly instalments of £99.

SsangYong deals

The SsangYong Tivoli is on sale in the UK priced from £12,590. If you’re interested in the compact SUV but can’t afford the car up front, you may be interested to read that several PCP deals are available, one of which makes the Tivoli in entry-level SE trim £199 per month over three years after a deposit of just £199. Standard equipment includes 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control and Bluetooth, and all models come with a five-year, unlimited mileage warranty.

The Vauxhall Adam Glam 1.2-litre petrol could be on your driveway for a deposit of £1,499 after a contribution from Vauxhall of £1,500, followed by 36 monthly instalments of £169.

Volkswagen deals

If you’re looking to buy a pick-up truck, Volkswagen is running some offers on all Amarok models registered before the end of March. The 138bhp 2.0-litre TDI model in mid-range Trendline trim is available on a PCP deal from £219 per month, while the more powerful 178bhp 2.0-litre TDI in range-topping Highline spec starts at £299 a month.

The deals are over three years – the Trendline Amarok would include a deposit of £7,407 and if you decide to pay the optional final payment to take ownership of the car, you’ll pay a total of £28,341 compared to the car's cash price of £26,278.

Volvo deals

If you need a big estate car that's also very efficient, then the Volvo V60 D2 is worthy of consideration. It's being offered with a £500 deposit contribution from Volvo and a £4,750 discount from the dealer. You pay a deposit of £5,167 and 36 monthly payments of £299 with an optional final payment of £10,975. Volvo is also offering three years' free servicing.
