The nation is currently holding its breath with authorities poised to release the brakes on current Covid-19 restrictions.
That means we could be looking at a summer of road trips to see friends and family, as well as those all-important holiday breaks. And if you dream of making those journeys in a gleaming - and affordable - new vehicle, then you’ll need to take a look at these incredible lease car deals.
At Select Car Leasing we’ve got more than 10 years’ experience working in the leasing trade, forging partnerships with global automotive distributors and retailers, as well the UK’s major motor finance companies.
That means we’re able to secure some seriously tempting lease car deals.
Meanwhile the brilliantly-styled and specced CUPRA Formentor could also be yours for much less than you might have anticipated...
Car leasing: the affordable way to drive new
If you don’t have the cash to purchase a car outright, rest assured that you’re not alone. Even the most basic Ford Fiesta, for example, attracts a price tag of more than £16,000.
But there is another way to drive the vehicle of your dreams - and that’s through a car leasing deal.
It’s called ‘Personal Contract Hire’, to give it its official title, and around 6.5 million vehicles in the UK are now leased. And there’s a good reason for that.
With a lease car deal you get to drive a brand new model, with all the driver assistance tech and interior gadgets that you crave, for an affordable fixed monthly fee.
You might have your eye on a modern, efficient hybrid vehicle, or even an all-electric model - all of which are at your fingertips with a lease deal.
And no matter what your budget might be, there’s a lease deal for you.

Mercedes-Benz E Class Coupe E220d AMG Line Premium
Here you get the E-Class in ‘Coupe’ form, with more swooping, rakish lines than the standard E-Class saloon. And AMG Line Premium models really are sure to turn heads.
You’ll enjoy a powerful 194 hp diesel engine that’ll return close to 50 miles to the gallon while still providing ample amounts of acceleration - with a 0-62mph time of just 7.6 seconds.
This lease car deal will also give you AMG bodystyling, 19 inch alloys, privacy glass and an augmented reality sat nav system.
Ford Puma Hatchback, EcoBoost Hybrid mHEV 155 ST-Line X

In mid-range ‘ST-Line X’ trim you can enjoy 18 inch alloys, partial leather trim, rear privacy glass, Electronic Air Temperature Control (EATC) and a Bang & Olufsen sound system.
Meanwhile the 155 PS engine will see you sprinting from 0-62mph in just 8.9 seconds while still returning 50 mpg.
CUPRA Formentor 1.5 TSI 150 V1 DSG
The CUPRA Formentor might be the new kid on the block when it comes to the SUV crossover market, but it boasts styling that really sets it apart from the competition and as an alternative to the Audi Q3, it’s a proper contender.
Unlike its stablemate, the CUPRA Ateca, it boasts coupe-like exterior styling and an aggressive stance.
Even better news is that even this base ‘V1’ model is loaded with equipment - including 18 inch alloys, rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, lane assist, and LED headlights.
The 1.5 litre petrol has an extremely healthy 150 PS on tap and it won’t sting you at the pumps, either, thanks to fuel economy of 42 mpg.
SEAT Leon Estate 1.5 TSI EVO FR
And in stylish Estate form, the Leon becomes even more practical.
There’s a whopping 620 litre boot - way roomier than the 380 litres you get with the standard Leon hatchback - and it’s incredibly well specced, too.
In this SE Dynamic trim you can expect 17 inch alloys, a fully-connected 10 inch infotainment screen, sat nav, cruise control and SEAT’s Park Assist system/
Meanwhile the 1.5 litre TSI petrol engine will return close to 50 miles to the gallon while emitting just 128 g/km of CO2.
Volkswagen Tiguan 1.5 TSI 150 Elegance
And with acres of room for the family as well as a 615 litre boot, the Tiguan could well be the perfect family car.
This Elegance model sits towards the top end of the trim levels available and boasts features like 19 inch alloys, a panoramic sunroof, an electric tailgate and a rear view camera system.
Meanwhile the 1.5 litre petrol engine has power of 150 PS yet can still return close to 40 miles to the gallon.
Audi A4 Estate 35 TFSI Technik
The capable Audi A4 is arguably best enjoyed in practical ‘Avant’ estate form, coming as it does with an enormous 495 litre boot.
In Technik trim you get 17 inch alloy, LED headlights and rear lights with LED daytime-running lights, Audi’s ‘parking system plus’ with rear-view camera as well as sat nav, the Audi Virtual Cockpit and an enviable array of driver safety systems.
Meanwhile the 35 TFSI boasts a 2.0 litre petrol engine with power of 150 PS and which will return a frugal 45 miles to the gallon.
