Prestige and luxury cars are more than just good-looking vehicles with a chunky price tag.
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.
While new car prices and availability are in flux at the moment, here’s a selection of luxury cars for less than £300 a month.
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 £280 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.
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 £279 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.
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 £258 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.
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 £220 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.
