With car manufacturers continually extending their range of cars, there is now a wide-choice available in the city car sector and that means there are many more cars available for low monthly payments of less than £100 per month.
It's sometimes difficult to know if you're being offered the best deal when you buy a new car though, or if there are other models that are cheaper or better suited to your needs - so we've put together this list to help you decide which is the best deal for you.
Buying a cheap car used to mean sacrificing a lot, but that's not the case any more as you can now buy a great motor for a bargain price. Perhaps that's why so many new cars are bought on finance.
Some buyers are even seeing these deals as an alternative to the used cars they might have otherwise considered. The Dacia Sandero is a good example, as with its low list price of under £7,000 it's the cheapest way to get into a new car in the UK. It's a compelling alternative to a £7k used hatchback.

Most of the cars in this list are city cars, like the Skoda Citigo and Hyundai i10. They do come with the compromises associated from a small body and engine, but many are surprisingly spacious and you won't feel too short-changed downsizing from something larger.
Most city cars are refined, comfortable and good to drive, too - and may even save you money in the long run with superior fuel economy and insurance costs.
All the cars listed here use finance deals known as Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) schemes – so you pay a deposit at the start, followed by monthly payments. Deposits are normally flexible and can be as little as a single monthly payment. At the end of the payment term, there are three options - you can trade the car in for a deposit against a new model, or pay a final payment to buy the car outright. You can also simply hand the keys back and part ways.
We try our best to keep this list as up-to-date as possible, but prices are constantly changing so do check with the dealer to find whether the offer is still available.
