If you’re in the market for a new car, or after the best new-car leasing deal, you can save thousands of pounds with a little research. Here are the picks of what our deals experts have found this week.

Best new car deals

Once our firm favourite in the crossover class, Kia's Sportage was recently updated for the 2014 model year. An offer we found from Nationwide Cars gets you the 2.0-litre CRDi KX-4 model for £25,175 – a saving of more than £4500 from the list price.

Audi's A3 outclasses the rest of the premium hatchback field in most respects, with its upmarket interior and efficient engine range. We found an interesting offer from Orange Wheels, for the 1.4-litre TFSI Sport model with S Tronic transmission. The price tag of £20,886 represents a saving of £2250 off the list price.

Best new car leasing deals

We came away from our long-term test in a Ford Fiesta ST full of praise for this powerful and nimble hot hatchback. A current offer from Cort Vehicle Contracts gets you the car for £162 per month on a two-year contract. There's a deposit of £1465 to pay and an annual mileage limit of 10,000.

Our Verdict

Ford Fiesta ST
Can the Fiesta ST be one of the great fast Fords?

The UK's most popular hatchback gets the hot ‘ST’ treatment, and is all the better for it. Little else can match it for the money

Honda has already started testing on the next-generation Jazz ahead of a planned market launch next year. Until then, retail prices on the current model continue to be favourable. That's why you can pick up a 1.2-litre i-VTEC model from Riverdale Leasing for £159 per month at the moment. There's an initial payment of £956 and the standard 10,000-mile annual limit applies.

Deal of the week

We're currently living with a Vauxhall Ampera on our long-term test fleet, and the plug-in hybrid is proving useful for avoiding London's Congestion Charge zone. It's usually available from £28,750 – including the government's £5000 EV grant – but a deal we spotted from Pentagon drops that price to just £22,600. That's a saving of more than £6000.
