If you have loved ones to transport around, choosing a family car is a huge decision. Space, practicality, running costs like fuel economy and insurance are all major considerations, but so should be the overall driving experience, and you need these all need to be available for a reasonable budget. At Hippo Leasing, we’ve taken all these on board to offer you personal car lease deals under £300 per month for our chosen family cars.

So, how have we chosen these family-friendly cars? We’ve focused on cars that can be leased for less than £300 but also have enough to offer to make the family happy and in turn make you happy too! These family cars might have a bigger engine, a fantastic trim or something that puts them above just the ordinary and normal and they are all available from Hippo Leasing today.

Examples below are all VAT inclusive and assume 48 months rental, 10,000 annual mileage and a nine-months initial rental deposit.


Volvo XC40 Estate

The Volvo XC40 Estate has everything you need to please passengers and driver alike and we have all three trims in the form of the “Momentum”, the “R Design” and the “Inscription” available for lease.

Starting from your passengers perspective, the good people at Volvo have certainly put them front and centre. The XC40 boasts features such as: two-zone electronic climate control with air quality system so passengers in the rear seats can stay comfortable; rear reading lights; passenger seat lumbar support; an underfloor stowage compartment; and a chilled glove box.

You will also be well taken care of where the XC40 has a stunning 12.3” crystal driver’s instrument panel, Bluetooth, rear park assist and a voice control system.

The Volvo XC40 is overflowing with safety kit boasting lane keep assist, road sign info display, tyre pressure monitoring, whiplash protection in the front and hill descent and hill start control.

All in all the Volvo CX40 represents the best in family-friendly motoring and we have a Volvo CX40 Momentum 2 litre petrol T3 available for less than £295 per month.


Volkswagen Passat

The Volkswagen Passat makes a fantastic family and child-friendly choice. VW has been making the Passat for over 46 years now. The engines, the build quality and reliability of the Passat are beyond question, the hardest part is picking which one is right for you.

There are 4 main trims with the S, the SE Business, the GT and the R-line and we reckon the value lies with the SE Business. The SE Business trim has smart looking 17” alloys; front and rear parking sensors and adaptive cruise control. You’ll also be treated to three-zone climate control; tinted glass in the rear and a heated passenger seat to keep everyone else in the car comfortable.

Hippo currently has the SE Business Diesel 2.0-litre on lease for just £299 per month and this stunning and confident saloon has excellent all-around stats with only 109g/km of CO2 emissions and fuel consumption of around 67 mpg. The Passat also has respectable acceleration going from 0-62 in just 8.7 seconds.

Infiniti QX30

The Infiniti QX30 often doesn’t get much of a look in when potential buyers consider the array of SUV’s currently available for lease. This is a pity as the Infiniti QX30 represents great value in the competitive compact premium SUV class.

The Infiniti Q30 is a distinctive, premium compact hatchback which shares its underpinnings with the Mercedes-Benz A-Class. It looks good and has a simply luxurious cabin, it’s comfortable for driver and passengers and it has solid, responsive steering. It’s also built in Britain so good for the economy!

We have a brand new Infiniti QX30 diesel 2.0-litre Luxe DCT with a panoramic sunroof (known as the glass pack) for only £296 per month. For those that have owned a car with a panoramic roof, it’s very difficult to move back to a normal roof…everything seems so much more drab and dark inside!

Hippo Leasing has all versions of the Infiniti QX30 available as amazing car leasing deals plus you can also select no deposit deals and have your new Infinity delivered anywhere in the country.


Mercedes-Benz B-Class

The Mercedes-Benz B-Class is proof that you don’t need to shell out huge amounts for a decent, premium vehicle that is great for the family.

In fact, at Hippo Leasing only £226 per month gets you a high spec B200 Executive edition B-Class which is great for drivers and passengers. This version is such a good all-rounder. 0-62 miles per hour in 8.2 seconds and CO2 emissions of 132 g/km mean that this 1600cc turbo petrol engine is well matched to the compact body of the B Class.

There are plenty of family-friendly features including Bluetooth and smartphone integration, ambient interior lighting, heated front seats, 6 speaker sound system and a Garmin map navigation system to make sure you reach the summer holiday destination in the fastest time possible.

As the driver, you will appreciate the 8” colour display screen; the reversing camera; leather upholstery; collision prevention assist and a whole bunch of other features that your friendly Hippo Leasing account manager will be more than happy to go through with you.


Ford C-Max

The Ford C-Max is an MPV in every way, and with that, it’s a great car to drive, has a high quality and spacious interior and comes with excellent equipment levels. These attributes make it one of the best family cars on sale today.

Engine choice is fairly straightforward: two engines, one petrol and one diesel at 1.0-litre and 1.5-litres respectively and three trim levels, namely the entry-level Zetec, the Titanium and the Titanium X, all with real differences in equipment levels. The smaller petrol engines start at 127 g/km CO2  and the 1.5-litre diesel engines offer more grunt and are more suited to motorway driving.

Standard equipment at entry level includes hill start assist, air conditioning and cruise control plus 16” alloys, ABS and traction control while the Titanium includes cruise control, climate control, and an 8” touchscreen.

In short, the C Max offers Ford practicality and safety with good value throughout the range and the choice of appropriate engines and extras. Right now we have a fantastic offer on the C-Max 1.0 litre EcoBoost 125 Titanium Navigation which also includes sat nav at less than £293 per month or you can go for the entry-level Zetec at £270 per month.


Mazda CX-3

The Mazda CX-3 crossover flows very well from tip to toe with a distinctive and confident gaze that says it’s ready for all you have to throw at it. The cabin has an upmarket look and feel and the CX-3 is genuinely fun to drive.

Mazda is not a great believer when it comes to turbos, in general, believing that the addition odf turbos to small engines gives a veneer of power, ultimately at the expense of true fuel economy. Instead, the Japanese manufacturer uses larger, normally aspirated engines (at least on petrol versions) available as 1.5-litre diesels or 2.0 litre petrol engines and four trims. These trims range from the entry-level SE Nav through SE-L Nav and Sports Nav with the latter available with 4X4.

Standard kit is on the entry-level SE Nav is impressive with alloy wheels, cruise control, airbags all round, Sat nav and traction control. You can actually get the SE Nav for a little over £205 per month but if you want the security of four-wheel drive, then we have the same spec with all-wheel drive for only £252 per month

The Mazda CX3 is a real contender for any  ‘best compact crossover’ award with head-turning but balanced looks, a great interior and standard kit and intelligent engines that compliment it.


Volkswagen Tiguan

The Volkswagen Tiguan is another sure-fire family car winner and the midsized SUV has loads of space, refinement together with a high-quality interior and a huge choice of engines that allow everything from the school run to road trips to be completed with ease.

The VW Tiguan can be described as the SUV for fans of the Volkswagen Golf lovers. The Tiguan’s mature lines together with its no-fuss demeanour and stylish and proven pedigree mean that it is now one of the most popular VW’s around.

This contemporary crossover has a treasure trove of standard and optional extras. The entry-level Tiguan S has 17” alloys, air conditioning, City emergency braking assist, predictive pedestrian protection and lane assist plus an 8” colour touch screen and multi-device interface. From here, the Tiguan goes through the gears to the SE, the SEL ( with seat massage function) and then to the performance orientated R Line with 20” alloys, panoramic sunroof, 58.9 mpg and a pace-setting 0-62 mph in a blistering 6.5 seconds!

Amazingly, we have a deal on the 2.0-litre TDI BMT 150 top of the range SEL for only £275 per month representing the best Tiguan spec available for an exceptionally low monthly outlay.
