The best new car deals and new car leasing offers of the week, including discounts on the Mazda CX-5, Ford B-Max, BMW Z4, VW Passat and BMW 3-series
18 April 2014

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

Best new car deals 

The CX-5 was the first model in Mazda’s range to feature the full suite of SkyActiv technologies, and the efficient range has helped the CX-5 to claim the number two spot on our list of the top five crossovers. The good news is that GB Car Deals is currently offering the diesel 2.2 SE-L five door model for £20,813, a saving of £2481 from the list price.

BMW's Z4 might lack the handling balance of its rivals, but the sporty two-seater features a punchy range of engines and an elegant interior. We found an interesting offer from Broker4Cars, offering the 20i sDrive two door model for £26,947, a big saving of £2888 from the list price.

Best new car leasing deals

Around 15 million VW Passats have been sold in 100 countries since its launch in 1973, making this a competent and popular family choice. We found a deal for £236.68 per month from FleetPrices on the diesel saloon 1.6 TDI Bluemotion Tech Executive 4dr model. That’s on a 48-month contract with a deposit of £2130 and a 10,000 annual mileage limit.

The BMW 3-series offers outstanding performance and handling, not only help it to become a consummate all-round performer but also ranking it in first position in our list of the top five compact executive cars. National Vehicle Solutions has an offer for a 320d Saloon 2.0 Efficient Dynamics for £451.45 a month for 36 months with a deposit of £1,354.35 and an annual mileage limit of 8,000. 

Deal of the week

The utility-oriented hatchback Ford B-Max is one of our favourite compact MPVs, and comes entirely free of B-pillars. We found a 1.6 TDCi model in high-spec Titanium trim from New Car Discount for just £15,116, a significant £2780 less than the listed price.

The Ford B-Max people-carrier introduces a novel pillarless door system, accessible space and a strong petrol engine into the supermini class

  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
