Top Car Leasing Deals: March 2020
A double winner in the 2020 What Car Awards, the BMW 330e is the environmentally aware executive’s choice. In simple terms, it’s a superb car. Our pick is the 330e M Sport 4dr Auto, which does 0-62 in less than 6 seconds, has 292bhp under the hood, but still has a combined CO2 of just 32g/km (WLTP), so you get all the fun and still qualify for a BIK rate of just 10% in the 2020/21 tax year. How did they even do that?
The BMW 330e M Sport 4dr Auto also comes with virtual cockpit, sat nav, cruise control, ambient lighting, 18” wheels, a 10.25" high resolution display and intelligent voice assistant, so has loads of fun tech and pro pack additions to play with too. If you are in the market for an beautifully made and well balanced car, then you must at the very least take a look at this one.
When it comes to Small SUVs, a lot of brands have gone for the “blender technique” – a mix and match approach, which sees the vehicle take styling cues from both SUVs and hatchbacks within the manufacturer’s range. With the XC40, Volvo bucked this trend to offer a pedigree car with a unique, stylish design that few can rival and all for a price that won’t burn a hole in your pocket.
The T3 petrol manual looks a good bet to ensure the family keeps their on the road costs down too – with a quoted 41mpg and CO2 at around 142g/km. It’s also available from a very competitive £259.19 per month incl. VAT – especially impressive when you consider Cruise Control, Active Park Assist and Front and Rear Parking Sensors are also thrown in.
The Hyundai Kona has fast-emerged as one of the go-to small SUVs for drivers looking to juggle both style, practicality and running costs. It’s innovative exterior design is complemented by a comfortable and refined cabin, but the biggest selling point undoubtedly comes in the shape of its hybrid powertrain. A 1.6-litre petrol is paired with a 43bhp electric motor to deliver CO2 emissions of 99g/km and a highly appealing 56mpg. Prices on this versatile funky hatchback start from under £185 per month incl. VAT.
A huge favourite of leasing customers, the Evoque is now an icon of the UK's roads, with the most recent upgrade to the model at the backend of last year virtually guaranteeing an acceleration of its already relentless success.
From our independent review analysis of the 6 top automotive publishers, the Evoque scores an impressive 4.2 out of 5 stars and there’s no doubt this ‘mild-hybrid’ is a sensible choice for the modern, upwardly mobile car leasing customer. If your budget permits, we recommend the ‘R-Dynamic’ trim upgrade which adds subtle finishes and exterior detailing to make it a presence on the road, while also not coming up short on tech either; thanks to a 10-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth and a Reversing Camera.
The Mercedes A Class A35 is the high-performance trim level of Mercedes’ market-leading premium hatchback and represents great bang for your buck in a competitive market. The A35 is soaked in sports detailing, inside and out, and can even be equipped with an aerodynamic spoiler for the full motorsport experience.
In terms of stats, there’s plenty to satisfy the most power-hungry driver – thanks to an engine that’ll deliver upwards of 300bhp, top speeds of 155mph and a stunning 0-62 time of under 5 seconds.
The Suzuki Vitara is a really great value small SUV. Our choice is the £148.79 per month 1.4 Boosterjet SZ-T 5dr petrol engine, which comes with sat nav, climate control and cruise control and with a pokey 148bhp engine can even do 0-62 in under 10 seconds! Alongside all these features you also get a rear parking camera, a major selling point in a car that retails under £150 per month incl. VAT to lease, and a Euro NCAP 5 star safety rating too. Taking a Suzuki Vitara lease is a great way of getting a well specced car with lots of kit at a fabulous price.
BMW 5 Series Saloon
The 5 Series Saloon from BMW is very well regarded at Select HQ, with many here driving one themselves. Regarded by the broader automotive press as the ultimate motorway cruiser, in part due to its gutsy diesel engines, immaculate interior and host of technology features, making any drive a doddle.
The 5 Series plays a delicate balancing act to perfection, with its diesel engines delivering impressive running costs, while still packing a punch in power terms. Scooping the 2020 What Car Luxury Car of the Year Award, inside the 5 Series Saloon looks and feels extremely high-quality, with BMW’s own ‘Virtual Cockpit’ arriving alongside ‘BMW Connected Drive’, Bluetooth, voice control and heated front seats. With rivals including the Jaguar XF, Audi A6 and Mercedes E Class – the 5 Series stands out among a very strong field of rivals.
Standing as the smallest SUV in the Audi range, the Q2 is a very stylish compact SUV that combines Audi’s luxury tradition with impressive efficiency on the road. Audi have packed the Q2 with market leading tech, including cruise control, parking sensors and a 7-inch infotainment screen, but that doesn’t mean costs on a car lease deal balloon – with prices on the Q2 starting at a very affordable £196.79 per month.
Top Electric Car Leasing Deals: March 2020
Now in its 2nd generation, the Nissan Leaf can almost be deemed the grandfather of the modern electric only car. What this means for the average leasing customer is that Nissan have made all their electric car mistakes already, so you can be assured you are leasing a car that really will perform. In addition, the Acenta model comes packed with a raft of tech for the discerning consumer, including rear view camera, Nissan connect EV 8" touch screen navigation and entertainment system, intelligent cruise control (ICC), intelligent lane intervention and lane departure warning system to boot. And with a range of over 160 miles and a current price of just £178.99 per month, the Acenta is easily one of the best value EVs the Select experts have seen for a while.
The first ever electric winner of the What Car 2019 Car of the Year Award, the Kia e-Niro comes laden with all the accolades any car could ever want. The electric SUV has a great electric range (WLTP 282miles per charge!), comes loaded with an abundance of tech and does 0-60 in less than 7 seconds.
The other major benefit of the e-Niro is that, unlike a few of other electric offers out there, it actually looks nice. It also has a great sized boot for when Johnny needs to get to sports or someone needs to do a big shop and it also comes with a 7 year / 100,000-mile warranty. Select’s expert’s choice is the £323.99 150kW 64kWh 5dr Auto that comes with 10.25" touch screen satellite navigation with European mapping and traffic messaging channel, 7" full supervision cluster with TFT colour display and adaptive smart cruise control function (SCC) too. Simply put, this car is a cracker and there’ll be lots on the roads in the future.
Introduced in mid-2019, the Tesla Model 3 is the affordable entry level model in Tesla’s growing range of electric cars. The car has gone down very well amongst the UK public, scoring top marks across the board by all the leading automotive publishers.
Simply put, it’s fast, has an incredible range and is packed with lots of technology. Our favourite value option at Select is the entry level £438.68 per month Standard Plus 4dr Auto, which gives a stunning 254 miles of range (WLTP) and early access to leasing an iconic car that’s seen as helping break the internal combustion engine dominance of new car sales.
