Best new car deals 2021

The latest new car finance deals including some from VW, Hyundai and Kia, as well as brokers

Volkswagen Golf Estate front 3/4 tracking

Our deals page has all the figures for a range of quarterly offers on new cars, as well as weekly deals and broker deals, so carry on reading if you're looking to save money on a new car.

Offers abound on both new and nearly new cars. Many of the latter will be 'pre-registered' cars – essentially brand new cars registered to show as 'sold' in an effort to increase sales figures. Although they're technically used cars, many will only have covered a handful of miles, but will be offered at a considerable discount.

Don't forget that it always pays to haggle. If you're a nervous negotiator, we can help you drive a bargain with our guide to securing the right deal. You might also find that your existing car is worth more than you think in part exchange. Following controversy surrounding diesel emissions, several manufacturer scrappage schemes are still in action, which might tempt you to trade in your older, less efficient diesel for a new, less polluting model.

Read on for our in-depth guide to the best new and nearly new car deals, including those from manufacturer websites and online brokers.
