We pick five of the best deals on this week’s new car market; all deals are valid until 1 June

Buying a new car is always better when you know you're getting a bargain, but scouring the internet for the best deals can be time-consuming.

So Autocar has done the hard work for you and compiled a list of some of the best savings on the new car market.

We've found combined savings of £44,972 on the five cars featured below, so take a look, then click the links to read our full road test verdict on each model. All offers are valid until 1 June.

Ford Focus - Pay £15,775, save £6030

The Ford Focus is one of the best all round hatchbacks money can buy, mixing good practicality and impressive handling and a strong range of engines.

The 1.5-litre Ecoboost petrol is a great example of such engines, so a £6k saving on an 1.5 EcoBoost ST-Line on Drivethedeal.com is a big deal.

Seat Leon - Pay £18,717 save £5453

Seat's sharp-looking Leon is a Latin take on the Volkswagen Golf, meaning it benefits from the Volkswagen Group's strong engine line-up and infotainment technology.

Go to Drivethedeal.com and a 2.0-litre TDI FR can be had with a hefty £5.4k saving.

Skoda Superb - Pay £24,173, save £4127

Skoda's Superb is one of the roomiest cars on sale, and also one of the sleekest.

This 2.0-litre TDI CR Sport Line is on sale with more than £4k off at Carfile.net, making it a bit of a bargain, too.

Renault Kadjar - Pay £22,265, save £3100

Renault's new design language has set it in good stead, with models such as the Kadjar drawing in customers for their looks as well as practicality.

Removing more than £3k from the list price of a 1.6 DCi Dynamic S Kadjar on Orangewheels.co.uk will make one even more tempting.

Kia Sportage - Pay £23,992, save £2503

On the subject of design, the Kia Sportage SUV is another handsome crossover that's caught the attention of many people new to the brand.

A 2.0 CRDi GT Line is up on Autoebid.com with a £2.5k saving.

Land Rover Discovery - Pay £63,222, save £1273

The new Land Rover Discovery is one of the brand's most family-friendly machines, but it still retains all the off-road ability you'd expect from a car bearing the green oval.

A high-spec 3.0 TD6 HSE Luxury is up for just over £63k on Coast2coastcars.co.uk, which is a fair saving considering the model's relative youth.

If I was going to be forced to drive around in a grumpy looking new shape Q7. God they look crap. I'd go so far as to say the first version looked better.

Well done for beating me to it. Many Audis, including the R8 and TT, now look visually disappointing compared to previous versions too, but the Q7 is by far the worst.

Maybe. But just think, if these cars have already depreciated by £5k or more before they've been driven, then they are probably going to continue loosing big money after purchase. Perhaps in the long run it would be better to buy something where demand exceeds supply, rather than the opposite here?

Care to comment on a 320d xDrive M Sport model :- "edging the price down close to £21k.". I'm so dubious of these companies, asked for a quote once and I just got spam!

 

Hydrogen cars just went POP

I have seen a Vauxhall Zafira Elite Nav - retail for £32k go for £23k - now thats a massive saving......

and before you ask - NO it will not catch fire

People shouldn't be allowed to drive an XC90 without an HGV licence. It may be OK for the USA, but it is just too wide for our roads.

It's more the case that parking space widths are just not fit for purpose anymore. Every car has grown every time there's a new model, since cars began, and yet recommended parking space sizes have not changed since 1994. Bearing in mind a space which is 1.8m wide is permissible, almost every car on sale is wider than that. Many cars are longer than the 4.5m which is the minimum length required.

You can technically drive a tractor, a tank or a privately owned bus or coach on a car licence, so any car is still small in comparison. I've driven a lot of things a lot bigger than an XC90 without a problem. But I think what you were really saying is, I don't like it, therefore no-one should have one.

And the justification is what, if I may ask? Manufacturers make the cars cleaner, safer, plusher, yet they can't make them more space efficient? The first gen Mercedes A-Class (W168/V168) was perfect. Full size 7-seat MPVs like the original Espace and Eurovan1 were 4.40. Let's see if dedicated electric car platforms can save even more space by pushing the batteries under the floor. IMHO road tax should be based on the amount of road occupied (length and width); let's see if we can reverse the trend that way.
Roads stay the same. Parking spaces between pillars in garages under buildings stay the same. If cars grow and can't fit anymore, it's not the parking space's or the road's fault.
