Leasing can be an affordable, practical route into having your own private car, but it's not always easy to tell the good deals from the duds. 

The experts at our sister magazine What Car? work hard to find you the best pay-monthly schemes, taking into account mileage allowance, montly outlay, contract length and initial deposit. We'll be bringing you the best deals they find from a different segment each week.

Looking to buy, not lease your next car? Autocar's new used car deals section can help you find a great price on a nearly-new model

This week, convertibles: 

1. Audi TT Roadster 40 TFSI Sport S Tronic

£1548 deposit, £516 per month, 36 months, 10,000 miles per year

Still the catwalk queen of convertibles but no diva, thanks to its undemanding nature and top-drawer build quality. There’s an engine and a drivetrain for everyone and, depending on engine, a choice of front- or four-wheel drive.

More Audi lease deals

2. Mercedes-Benz E300 Cabriolet AMG Line Premium

£1968 deposit, £656 per month, 48 months, 10,000 miles per year

Mature, secure and self-possessed, the E-Class is the one grown-up in the convertible community. It’s richly specced, comfortable and quite, even with the roof down. There’s a huge range of engines to choose from, too.

More Mercedes lease deals

3. Mini Convertible 1.5 Cooper Classic

£802 deposit, £267 per month, 48 months, 8000 miles per year

Small but perfectly formed, this Mini is a bit of a steal when it comes to convertibles. It’s better engineered than it needs to be, while its roof really does fold down flat, revealing even more of the little car’s vivacious character.

Summer's coming and so is Audi's TT Roadster. It shares the coupé's chiselled good looks, but is it as sharp to drive?

More Mini lease deals

4. BMW 420i Convertible M Sport

£1530 deposit, £510 per month, 48 months, 10,000 miles per year

Not the tautest or stiffest convertible but certainly stylish and, thanks to a metal roof rather than a fabric one, practical, with genuine all-weather appeal. Few rivals compare when it has its roof down and wind blocker up.

Are people actually spending this on a lease for a car? £500/mo for a 2.0l BMW!? £650/mo for a 4-pot Merc?! These seem like crazy numbers for distinctly average cars!

If you really cannot wait, there are plenty available from specialist dealers with delivery mileage, if you are prepared to pay a £2K premium.

They are ridiculously priced anyway. Better to wait for 3 years until they have depreciated to a sensible price.

The problem with the GR Yaris (however desirable it may seem), is that if you order one now, you won't see it until 2022!!

The entire 2021 allocation is now sold out, sorry guys.
