If you're looking for a new car leasing deal but you're just not sure what's out there or what's right for you then why not take a look at some of our recommendations based on some personas.
If there's anything that a family man or woman needs its practicality and versatility or an "all-rounder" - this is why we recommend cars with strong economical engines, high level of reliability, 5 doors and an excellent safety records. We lease a few cars which tick all of these boxes which include hatchbacks and crossovers. Here's a couple we've handpicked for you:
Mercedes A-Class Hatchback
The ultra-popular Mercedes A-Class has recently been revamped which gives the lucky driver access to the latest engines, tech and comfort. There are plenty of engines from frugal diesel to punchy petrol as well as a wide range of trims and options to cater to any taste and budget.
Ford Focus Hatchback
The brand new Ford Focus is a mid-range hatchback which does everything it says on the tin. This, along with the A-Class, has also been revamped for late 2018/2019.
The Kia Sportage is the most popular crossover and there's a good reason why. The Sportage offers generous levels of tech and comfort while being driven by some of the most economical engines going. The added bonus of greater ride height and plenty of interior space makes it an excellent family orientated choice.
The School Run Parent
If you're doing the school run you're going to need two things - space for all the kids and economical engines to save on fuel during the school run traffic. Here are some recommendations for you:
The Ford S-Max is one of the most versatile, spacious and economical of all the MPV leases we offer. There's plenty of spaces inside for 7 passengers (including the driver) to ride comfortably. Economical engines and a wide range of trims are also available to cater to any taste and budgets.
If you're looking for a car that has plenty of space but it doesn't need to be 7 seater then why not consider the Nissan Qashqai? Hailed as one of the vehicles which kickstarted the crossover revolution, the Qashqai is a car which offers plenty of style and substance.
