With the first quarter of the year down, and the new reg plate released in March, many people are looking at leasing their next car. We've gone through and taken a look at our 5 most popular cars leased so far this year, are you currently in two minds? This list may help you make that important decision.
1) AUDI A3 HATCHBACK/ SPORTBACK
This might initially raise a few eyebrows for a few of you, the A3 has always flown a little more under the radar in comparison to its direct rivals the 'A Class' and BMW 1 Series. But when you get down to it and consider the facts, it becomes slightly more obvious why the A3 has been such a hit with our leasing customers in both Hatchback & Sportback form. Alongside being ever-increasingly affordable to obtain, the A3 doesn't compromise this with its economy - it’s one of the cheaper hatchbacks to run & is far from shabby with emissions either. The recent addition of the A3 E-Tron trim to the booming electric car market will only help the A3's case a highly desirable, in-demand car.
2) RANGE ROVER EVOQUE SUV
A stylish, prestigious & versatile SUV the Range Rover Evoque has a fantastic reputation across the world. With a distinctive design, one that was so popular it even resulted in an audacious convertible adaptation, its maybe not surprising to see the Evoque our 2nd most leased car to-date. One of the many great benefits of the Evoque is that its engines have something for everyone; power-hungry drivers will find the 2.0-litre petrol more than capable with 0-62mph attainable in just 7.1 seconds & the most economically driven car will give you 65.7mpg and CO2s of just 109g/km.
3) VOLKSWAGEN GOLF HATCHBACK
One of the UKs most recognizable cars, the Golf has been our 3rd most leased car this year. Alongside being a great cost-effective option the Golf has balanced this with good performance & relatively low running costs to ensure it remains a household name. With a sharp, refined shape that’s undergone many positive improvements over the years, the Golf continues to be an award-winning car. The performance geared Golf R model has also enjoyed significant success and is considered one of the best 'hot hatchbacks' currently available.
4) MERCEDES A CLASS HATCHBACK
The A Class is a modern, upmarket hatchback choice with a distinctive design both inside & out. While its exterior styling may not be to the pleasing of everyone, one of the main selling points for A Class Lease customers is its high-end & luxurious interior which has received widespread praise from the motoring press & will be adequate for the most tech-demanding driver.
5) MERCEDES E CLASS SALOON
A dominant figure on our roads, the E Class Saloon has everything you would expect from Mercedes' premier executive saloon. The E Class' new design is possibly its best yet; combine this with a good balance of engines & an interior that has all the space, equipment and in-car technology a modern driver requires. The E Class is becoming more and more affordable but its quality still reflects its high-end origins and there's a lot to love from its tremendous variety of engines.
