Prestige and luxury cars are more than just good-looking vehicles with a chunky price tag.

The reputations of brands such as Mercedes-Benz, Audi, BMW and several other premium car-makers are built on decades of giving drivers the best on-the-road experience.

A luxury car can afford you better performance, better comfort and, crucially, better reliability than you can expect from a budget vehicle.

That being said, drivers shouldn’t feel priced out of leasing a luxury car, as used cars can offer the same high quality and reliability with a significant reduction in monthly cost. 

You can even get into a luxury car for less than £300 a month.

And to help you in your search, we’ve put together a list of 10 luxury cars available to lease for under £300.

Mercedes-Benz A-Class

Bolder, forward-thinking and a younger feel – it’s the Mercedes A-Class. 

Thanks to key driving features, sharper looks, extra media connectivity and greater efficiency, it goes up against sporty counterparts such as the Audi A3 and BMW 1 series.

Available as a five-door hatchback or saloon, it’s striking in design with an excellent cabin and infotainment system, and provides a very comfortable drive.

Opting for an Approved Used Mercedes-Benz A-Class makes this car incredibly affordable.

And here at Hippo Leasing, you can lease a stunning Mercedes-Benz A-Class from as little as £227 a month.

Best for driving experience 

When it comes to luxury cars, you shouldn’t compromise on the drive. The dynamic Mercedes-Benz A-Class is defined and sharp behind the wheel. And pairing that with its class-leading cabin, there’s nothing else like the A-Class.


Volkswagen Tiguan

The Volkswagen Tiguan is a compact and stylish SUV. It’s fresh, luxurious and one of the best in its class. 

The Tiguan opens the door for all driving situations; a perfect cruiser on the motorway, dynamic on country roads and rough and ready off-road. 

And, because of its price, the VW Tiguan is one of the best-value SUVs available. Priced from as little as £215 monthly, it’s now easy to get into the luxury SUV world and still keep it affordable. 

Best for all drives

From long weekends to long journeys, luxury should also mean refinement, and this compact SUV is supremely comfortable no matter where you take it. 

BMW 5 Series

If you’re looking for a luxury saloon with sports pedigree, then the BMW 5 Series is the car for you.

With transmission coming in automatic – for those long motorway cruises – or manual – if you enjoy taking the car to the limit – there’s something to suit every need with the 5 Series. 

On top of that, expert BMW craftsmanship inside and out and stunning drive top off a superb all-round saloon. 

And with prices starting at just £240 monthly, it’s great value, too. 

Best for mixing business and pleasure 

The BMW 5 Series range is perfect for business and family life. It eats motorway miles and is the choice of many who want luxury, comfort and dependable BMW performance.

Audi A4

The Audi A4 is classed by many as the pinnacle of Audi’s engineering brilliance. 

Rivalling the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, its value for money is unmatched. As is its feel behind the wheel or connection to the road. 

Fitted with outstanding tech and plenty of room for passengers, the interior typifies the overall feeling of the Audi A4; refined and practical yet a special drive. 

You can get behind the wheel of the Audi A4 for as little as £223 a month. 

Best for value

The Audi A4 is one of the best-value vehicles on the road. It’s a superb drive and comes with everything you’d need in a luxury saloon.

Infiniti Q50

Turning away from the trio of German excellence; Mercedes, Audi and BMW, our next reasonably priced premium car is from Japan’s Infiniti marque. 

Elegant in looks and generous with space and technology, the Infiniti Q50 is a highly-thought-of alternative in a very German-dominated market. 

And with monthly prices starting from just £234, it’s easy to see why it’s loved by those looking for something a little different. 

Best for something different 

If you’re looking for something different than the usual mainstream offerings, the Infiniti Q50 is a good choice. Great to look at, fast, luxurious and efficient.

Lexus CT

Another affordably-priced premium car of Japanese origin is the Lexus CT. Contemporary in style, the CT offers quality and refinement in hatchback form. 

A large front grille synonymous to the Lexus marque amplifies the vehicle’s quality feel, as does its tech-packed interior and plush seating. 

And its price tag is appetising, too, starting from just £262 a month. 

Best for contemporary luxury

The Lexus CT is the car that has it all but isn’t ostentatious. Space, luxury, good drive, strong fuel economy. It’s one of the perfect all-rounders.

BMW 1 Series

The BMW 1 Series is a superb luxury hatchback which brings all the elegance, feel and connection to the road you get in the big BMWs but in a smaller, more manageable package. 

Its aggressive styling typifies the 1 Series’ sporty nature, while inside, there’s up-to-date technology, an impressive amount of space and a smooth ride. 

Starting at just £184 a month, the BMW 1 Series is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to own a luxury vehicle. 

Best for low-cost luxury

As the BMW 1 Series proves almost more than anything else, driving a luxury vehicle doesn’t have to be costly.

Audi A1

The Audi A1 is as compact as luxury comes. Great looking and filled with standout tech, the A1 is the perfect luxurious city car. 

Inside, there’s more space than you might expect, and with five-door practicality, it’s a great family car, too.

Prices for the Audi A1 start from as little as £172 a month, and even a brand-new model sits well under the £300 mark.  

Best for inner-city luxury 

Who wants to choose between practically for the daily office commute and a fun driving experience? The Audi A1 juggles it all – style, space, tech and comfort.

Jaguar XF

The Jaguar XF is a light, spacious good-looking executive car. With cutting-edge technology and a dynamic driving experience, it’s the ultimate in luxury – something Jaguar do very well. 

Whether driving around town or zipping down the motorway, it’s a comfortable, quiet and sleek drive.

And it’s affordable, too, available to lease for just under £300 a month.

Best to impress

Let’s face it, one of the advantages of having a luxury car is undoubtedly that “wow” factor. The Jaguar XF has it in spades and will certainly impress any onlookers. 

Land Rover Discovery Sport

Making light work of serious off-roading, this spacious Land Rover Discovery Sport is extremely versatile. It handles big off-road escapades as easily as the everyday commute. 

Achieving 50mpg, this high-riding SUV is also incredibly fuel-efficient and stunning to look at. 

Inside, a Range Rover-esque finish gives unrefined luxury, while the gargantuan amounts of space make it exceptionally practical. 

At £294 a month, the Land Rover Discovery Sport is one of the best-value SUVs on the market. 

Best for SUV style

Nothing competes with the Land Rover Discovery Sport’s looks on this list, especially in the SUV market. Sleek design and practical, it’s the perfect vehicle for every occasion.
