At Hippo Leasing we often come across customers who are either looking for their first car, another run-around or perhaps a second small car for the family where they need both reliability and low running costs. At Hippo, we have a wide selection of value-based, used cars in stock and ready to go – here is a feel for what car you can lease for under £111 per month. In all cases, any indicative quotes include an assumption of a 48-month term and 9 months deposit but you can opt for no deposit lease deals or a different length of lease contract if you prefer.
The Skoda Citigo shares much of its underpinnings with the VW up! and the Seat Mii (both reviewed below) and it is roomier than may first appear where it will take 4 adults with ease. We have 3 door and 5 door models available and the 5 door is definitely worthwhile considering if you transport a few people regularly.
The boot has just over 250 litres of space and it’s a solid, reliable and practical car which has no problem taking on motorways though it is most comfortable as a nippy urban runaround. It has a 1.0-litre petrol engine which comes in 2 flavours with either 59 or 73 bhp with the more powerful engine the one to go for if you do a fair amount of motorway driving.
Hippo has both 3-door and 5-door used Skoda Citigo’s for lease. Our 3-doors are 3 to 4 years old with between 25,000 and 45,000 Miles on the clock and for less than a £1000 deposit (£923 to be exact) you can drive away one of these little stars for £102.63 per month. The 5-door Citigo available with Hippo are of similar age and have done between 40,000 and 55,000 miles and can be leased from £107 per month.
The Hyundai i10 is a fantastic all-rounder. It still looks fresh, is really practical and at 3.7 metres long, the i10 is a large city car which is quite comfortable with two adults up front and even three kids in the back. Most cars this size only have two belts in the back but the people at Hyundai seem to have more than a two child seat belt policy which is also refreshing.
The Hyundai i10 is responsive and has a turning circle of about 9.5-metres so it's also easy to manoeuvre around town. It comes with either a 1.0-litre or 1.2-litre petrol engine where the 1.0-litre has 66 PS while the 1.2-litre has 87 PS though it's hard to notice a difference in performance when comparing them on the road.
A key point to mention is the five-year, unlimited mileage warranty that Hyundai offer which is often the thing that gets the Korean manufacturer the nod when comparing small city cars. Hippo has used I10’s available for lease with a 1.0 S 5 door available for £107 per month or a brand new car for only £147 per month so you have all the choice available with our Hyundai i10’s.
Hippo Leasing has some cracking lease deals on the Toyota Aygo. For less than £1000 deposit and only £111 per month, you can get a Toyota Aygo 1.0 VVT-I X Play 5 door. We have a batch of cars that are 3-4 years old and have only done between 30,000 and 50,000 miles. So what do you get with this model?
Bold and distinctive styling plus the Aygo is a really responsive vehicle with an economical 3 cylinder engine that produces 68bhp and has a fuel efficiency of just under 70 mpg. The Aygo also fits into the 7 insurance group rating so it's inexpensive to insure, while emissions are only 95g/km making road tax and benefit in kind tax on the low side.
If you want a 2 to 3-year-old city car with some zip and style then you can't go wrong with the Seat Mii. The Seat Mii has a 5 star NCAP rating so that’s a good start, returns nearly 63 mpg and it only has CO2 emissions of around 105g/km. This people-pleaser is really responsive and easy to drive with the 1.0-litre engine producing around 60 bhp.
While the Seat Mii won’t put your spine into the seat when you accelerate its fun to drive around town and at under 3.6 metres in length it’s a doddle to get into tight parking spaces.
Hippo Leasing has 2- to 3-year-old used Seat Mii’s with between 40k to 60k miles on the clock for only £110 per month with a deposit of £1000 and a lease term of 48 months. We can deliver your Seat Mii nationwide and you can opt for zero deposit deals as well.
What a likeable car the VW Up! is. Unpretentious, quirky, good value, economical in all departments and has great Volkswagen credentials – a sure-fire city-car winner.
The Up! range has grown and grown over the years so it now boasts six models and seven engines but what stays the same is Volkswagen’s build quality and the fact that it’s a leading car in its class with either 3- or 5-doors. The Up! Gti gives surprisingly sprightly performance numbers thrashing its 1.0-litre turbocharged 6-speed engine from 0-62 in 8.8 seconds.
Hippo Leasing has a selection of 3- to 4-year-old Volkswagen Up! cars available for not much over £110 per month and a deposit of just £994. This represents fantastic value in a car that Volkswagen has put so much effort into and want to be their biggest global seller.
So there you have it. five amazing little city cars which will wow you for less than £111 per month or the equivalent of £25 per week and deposits of less than £1000! To make leasing your car even easier, we also offer no deposit deals and we can deliver your car right to your door.
