Fiat 500


Fiat 500 Cult 2014 front action

While the 875cc three-cylinder engine is the eco choice for the 500, the 1.2-litre offers extra pace and doesn’t feel quite as strained at higher speeds. Monthly payments are cheaper, too. The 500 is as stylish as ever, and remains lots of fun to drive.

Honda Jazz


Honda Jazz 1.4 ES Plus front action

What the Honda Jazz lacks in style it more than makes up for in practicality and ease of use. And it looks even more tempting when Honda is putting £500 towards the deposit on a zero per cent APR finance offer. That means you’ll only pay the price of the car, with no interest.

Hyundai i30


Hyundai i30 3dr front tracking

You could argue that Hyundai’s i30 is more stylish than established rivals like the VW Golf, but it’ll definitely be cheaper, with a £1,500 deposit contribution and £189 monthly payments. It’s classy inside, and even Active models get 15-inch alloys and rear parking sensors.

Ford B-MAX

Ford B-MAX front cornering

The absence of a B-pillar was the main focus when the B-MAX went on sale, but its Fiesta-like driving experience also appealed. Add the three-cylinder EcoBoost engine, and this is a great small family car – made even greater by the £1,250 saving when you buy on Ford finance.

MINI Countryman

MINI Countryman 2014 front static

The MINI Countryman is a quirky choice in the booming SUV market. It’s got a versatile interior and all the usual charm you expect from the brand’s models, plus it’ll hold on to its value well. MINI will contribute towards any purchase, too, making it a strong option. We’d go with the Cooper D as it’s the most economical model in the range.

Vauxhall Zafira

Vauxhall's Zafira is one of the most popular MPVs in the UK, and it still does the job, even if it’s a little bit dated now.

Plus, Vauxhall is offering £2,500 towards a deposit, making it a sensible choice for large families.

Mercedes A-Class

Looking for a new family hatch that oozes quality? The A-Class is a great choice – and it won’t break the bank, with Mercedes putting £300 towards the price. The entry-level A180 SE is a decent buy, with a strong 1.6-litre petrol engine and a comfortable ride.

Alternatively, up your monthly payments to £385, and you only have to part with a £999 deposit. Whichever offer you choose, the A3 is a sophisticated family car that feels a step up from the majority of the competition.

Audi A4

Audi A4 Ultra action

Also showing its age is the Audi A4, but this new Ultra engine not only cuts running costs, it boosts performance and refinement, too. In fact, it’s now the pick of the range. Add £289 monthly payments and a £4,300 deposit contribution, and this deal is hard to resist.

Volkswagen Passat 2.0 TDI Sport front cornering

This refined saloon is perfect for eating up motorway miles, and it’s available for just £319 a month from VW.

Jaguar XF


Jaguar XF R-Sport 2014 front action

Putting up a fight in the executive class is the XF. Its 2.2-litre diesel isn’t the quietest or cleanest, but Jaguar is contributing £3,124 to the deposit to give monthly payments of £329. There’s a smooth eight-speed auto box, and the comfortable XF is ideal for long journeys.

Mercedes E-Class

Mercedes E-Class front tracking

The recently revised E-Class is one of the best executive cars on the market, and the pre-facelift model scored highly in our Driver Power survey. It’s a pricey option, as you’ll need a hefty deposit to secure the car. However, with this deal, the monthly payments are manageable and Mercedes will stump up nearly £4,000 to help you out, too.

BMW 5 Series

BMW 5 Series saloon 2013 front track

It's been edged out by the Audi A6 as our top executive car, but the BMW 5 Series is still a fine buy. And it’s still the better choice from behind the wheel. As with all our BMW deals here, there’s a big deposit contribution (just over £4k) to make things affordable.
