Skoda Rapid

£179 per month with a £1,871 deposit (0 per cent APR)

Skoda Rapid 1.2 TSI SE front tracking

You can get free servicing for three years/30,000 miles from Skoda if you buy a Rapid through the firm’s Solutions PCP scheme. Even better, it’s offering 0 per cent APR. That leaves a deposit of £1,871, 36 monthly payments of £179 and an optional final payment of £3,969. Skoda will also knock £800 off the list price, meaning you’ll only pay £12,105 for a 1.2 –litre MPI model in S trim.

The Rapid offers low running costs and is one of the most practical cars in its class. And Skoda itself is one of the most highly-rated brands by car owners. It regularly tops our Driver Power satisfaction survey and came second in our 2013 league table.
