Audi A4 Estate
If you value build quality, technology and design above all else, then you’ve got to get yourself an Audi. And if you need an Audi with space and style, you’ve got to get yourself an A4 Avant.
A favourite among business lease customers all over the country, the latest-generation A4 comes with Audi’s trademark interior quality. Everything inside is beautifully engineered, with a huge central touchscreen and Audi’s brilliant, customisable Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster.
Lease customers get a choice of petrol and diesel engines, although Audi’s confusing naming system makes it hard to work out which is which. In essence, the key engines are 2.0-litre petrols and diesels, with power outputs ranging from 136hp to 265hp.
If you want more, though, you can have the 341hp 3.0-litre diesel S4 Avant, which gets from 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds, or you can choose the RS4 Avant, which boasts a 2.9-litre, six-cylinder petrol engine with 450hp. That’s enough for 0-62mph in 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 155mph.
At the opposite end of the scale, the most frugal diesel versions – the 30 TDI units – will manage almost 60mpg on a long run.
BMW 5 Series
Another perennial favourite, the BMW 5 Series has earned its reputation as a comfortable, composed and luxurious executive saloon.
BMW has made its name building cars that are great to drive, and the 5 Series is no exception. In every guise, it’s a car that handles beautifully and rides well too. Whether you’re blasting home from work down your favourite back road or hammering down the motorway, it’s perfectly suited to the task.
The cabin sets the gold standard for executive business cars, with logical controls, excellent build quality and the fantastic iDrive infotainment system. Controlled using the touchscreen, a rotary dial in the centre console or even your voice, it’s the yardstick by which other systems are judged.
The 5 Series comes with a choice of petrol and diesel engines, but you can also have it as a plug-in hybrid. Most of the powertrains use 2.0-litre, four-cylinder motors, but there are some more powerful 3.0-litre options for those who want a bit of extra oomph.
And if performance is really your thing, consider the go-faster M550i, with its 4.4-litre V8 petrol engine, 530hp and four-wheel drive. Or, if you’re feeling really adventurous, take a look at the M5 Competition, which comes with a 625hp version of that gargantuan 4.4-litre V8 engine. It takes just 3.3 seconds to roar to 62mph.

A relative newcomer to the electric vehicle market, the Polestar 2 plays the Tesla Model 3 at its own game… and wins.
Beautifully built by the people who brought you Volvo, the electric fastback has classy, minimalist styling and brilliant, Google-powered in-car technology.
For 2021, Polestar has broadened the line-up, giving business lease customers the chance to prioritise range or performance as they see fit. These days, the line-up kicks off with the Standard Range Single Motor model, which has a 63kWh battery pack and a 224hp electric motor at the front. That allows 0-62mph in seven seconds and a range of up to 275 miles.
Alternatively, you can have the Long Range Single Motor variant, which has the same power and performance, but ups the range, giving you up to 336 miles of zero-emission motoring. Or you can go for the Long Range Dual Motor version, which gives you 408hp and four-wheel drive, but reduces the range to 299 miles.
All that comes with Polestar’s trademark Scandinavian style and a minimalist cabin that simply tears up the rulebook normally associated with automotive interiors.

Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake
Arguably the sexiest car in the CLA range, the Shooting Brake mixes style, space and premium quality in one gorgeous, estate-shaped package. A fantastic business lease option.
As beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside, the CLA’s cabin is a delight. Huge screens, high-quality materials and modern, aeronautically inspired design dominate the experience, but there’s substance to match the style.
The MBUX infotainment system is a huge step up compared with what went before, and the CLA makes the most of those two digital displays that sweep across the dash. You can even have the car with augmented reality navigation, which overlays sat-nav directions on a real-time view of the road ahead. Clever, eh?
Basic engine options comprise the 136hp ‘180’ petrol engine and the 163hp ‘200’ engine, both of which are based on the same 1.3-litre block. Or you can have the 224hp ‘250’ petrol, the 190hp ‘220d’ diesel or the 250e plug-in hybrid.
If, on the other hand, you want something more powerful, you can have the 2.0-litre, 306hp ‘35’ model or the more powerful 421hp ‘45S’. Both come with four-wheel drive, but the latter can get you from 0-62mph in just four seconds.
If you want to lease an SUV that’s compact, luxurious and electric, the Mercedes-Benz EQA was built specifically for you.
It shares a gorgeous interior with the CLA Shooting Brake, offering the same heady mix of quality and fashion. Jet-inspired air vents sit alongside crystal clear infotainment screens controlled by switches on the steering wheel and a laptop-style touchpad between the two front seats.
As you might expect from an electric car, there’s plenty of on-board technology, including a reversing camera, the MBUX infotainment system and plenty of safety gizmos.
Business lease customers have the choice of three electric powertrains, offering different amounts of power, performance and range. The basic ‘250’ version produces 190hp and comes with a 260-mile range, while the mid-range ‘300’ has 228hp and a range of up to 264 miles, not to mention all-wheel drive.
Finally, the ‘350’ model crowns the range, offering 292hp and the chance to sprint silently from 0-62mph in just six seconds. Although it too has all-wheel drive, it still manages to match the 300’s 264-mile range from a full charge.

Tesla Model 3
Few car companies have captured the imagination in the way Tesla has, and its most mainstream model – the Model 3 – has been a roaring success with business lease customers everywhere.
Now you too can lease the latest version of this technological marvel, complete with its long electric range, massive touchscreen infotainment system and high-end safety technology.
Business lease customers get a choice of three different versions, with the Standard Range Plus model marking the entry point. That version comes with rear-wheel drive and a range of up to 278 miles, while the electric motor will take you from 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds.
Moving up, you come to the two all-wheel-drive versions – the Long Range and the Performance. As you might have guessed from the name, the Long Range is the more economical of the two, offering up to 360 miles of range. But the Performance only has marginally less range – 352 miles – and it’ll get from 0-60mph in a mere 3.1 seconds.
All three versions allow you to use Tesla’s Supercharger network of high-powered charging points. It’s one of the best networks in the UK, and it will top up the batteries incredibly quickly.
