One of the main factors for the eventual car chosen comes down to the customers budget. This is why our range from personal to business lease with or without a deposit includes a wide range of vehicles for every kind of budget. Some fit into the higher end and a lot can be budgeted for by the individual or family that need to keep to a strict budget.
The rising cost of living means that more people are cautious with their money and this is reflected in their lifestyle choices. Most families need a car but many prioritise other things above having an expensive vehicle.
We have taken a look through some of the most practical vehicles for different uses all within an average car leaser’s budget!
Chevrolet Spark 1.0 +
The very smallest car on the books comes with the smallest price. The Chevrolet Spark is a nifty and attractive looking car that is surprisingly equipped with a comfortable and fairly spacious interior. The boot space is somewhat average at 170 litres with the seats up but with seats down can load 568litres (Information taken from Chevrolet).
The Spark is ideal for those City commuters, first time buyers or anyone on a tight budget. The vehicle is an even more rounded money saver when you look into the combined fuel economy of 56.5 mpg so you can set less money aside for getting from A to B.
With a deposit of just £594 Inc. vat you are looking at paying under £100 and if you wish to avoid an upfront payment then you can go for the no deposit leasing option which brings the price just over the £110 amount and in keeping with even the lowest of budgets.
A functional and modern looking Punto which in terms of evolution is miles ahead of the previous Punto models and the quality of the cars has come on leaps and bounds too.
To look at, the Fiat Punto is one of the best small cars available. The budget is likely to appeal to most people too as it falls under the £150 per month mark when you put down a £594 deposit.
Alongside a cheap monthly payment you will be pleased with the fuel economy of the car, as according toWhatCar? the Fiat Punto can operate at 52.3mpg. The Punto falls into Tax Band D so it is chargeable at £60.50 for 6 months road tax.
The Punto 1.2 Easy come with alloy wheels, CD player, power steering, immobiliser, central locking and much more.
When you have a growing family you are most likely going to be looking for a cost effective 7 seater. The myth that traditional people carriers are frumpy is quickly going out of the window now the popularity of bigger more practical cars has rocketed and manufacturers are taking time to design attractive MPV's.
Most manufacturers have a flagship estate for the bigger families and Renaults Grand Scenic is a fantastic example. They look great and the Dynamique 1.6 VVT TomTom model comes with some features most people associate with the higher end business style saloons.
Getting lost will be a thing of the past as will those unattractive circles on the dashboard when you use removable Satellite Navigation as the Grand Scenic comes with a built in reliable TomTom Sat Nav.
Arguably the biggest name in retail navigation devices has teamed up with Renault on other models such as the Renault Megane to add luxurious extras to more common vehicles.
With these models you can also get comfortable in the ample cabin space and up to 208 litres of boot space right up to an enormous 2063 litres if you opt to do without the rear 2 seats. (Figures taken from WhatCar?)
The Grand Scenic interior is further enhanced by the climate control, cruise control, power steering, electric and heated mirrors and CD player.
For security you can be safe in the knowledge that your car is protected by an alarm and immobiliser whilst you can gain entry through central locking.
You will be looking at just over £200 per month for this fantastic vehicle including vat but for that kind of money it seems near impossible to find a quality 7 seater with even half of the features the Grand Scenic can boast.
The Clio range is another long standing member of the small car family. You will almost certainly of owned a Renault Clio or know someone who has had one of the various models down the years. Well known for being attractive little cars with plenty of features and affordable at the same time.
The latest Renault Clio is a fantastic evolution on the previous popular and smaller model. It has been a trend amongst car manufacturers that their usually compact hatchbacks have had a facelift and in fact grown in length. This could be down to the growing market for hatchbacks among small families and the need for them to be more practical with boot space and interior leg room.
Similarly to the Megane and the Grand Scenic the new range of Clio’s are available with Media Nav satellite technology which gives a luxurious feel to a car normally associated with standard driving and minimal gadgets.
As well as a touchscreen Sat Nav you can drive safely using the built in Bluetooth and listen to your favourite music on the CD player with MP3/iPod Connectivity.
Not forgetting that budget is the key and you will be able to enjoy fuel economy of up to 51.4mpg, low tax and insurance quotations suitable for most age and experienced drivers.
Including your vat you will be looking at a budget of £180 comfortably getting you into a Clio with all these features and much more
