22 May 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

One of our favourite full-size SUVs, the Volkswagen Touareg offers the practicality and performance of more premium rivals but at a lower cost. We spotted the 3.0 V6 Hybrid model available from Buy a New Car Online for £52,498 – which is £7,378 off the list price.

Peugeot’s 308 hatchback has not only won the European Car of The Year award for 2014, but has also received much praise from our road testers who called it 'classy and refined'. We found a 1.6-litre eHDi Feline model offered with a £3,711 reduction to £18,559 on UK Car Discount.

The Seat Leon is a significant model for the Spanish brand, with diesel models taking the majority of sales here in the UK. It represents a stylish alternative to the VW Golf but shares the same MQB platform underpinnings. First Vehicle Leasing is offering the 1.6-litre TDI SE 5dr model for £168 per month on a two-year contract with an initial payment of £1344.

We were impressed with Citroën's Grand C4 Picasso when we road tested it, with the latest models offering a high-class interior alongside an efficient range of diesel engines. We spotted a 1.6-litre e-HDI Airdream VTR model on Central UK Vehicle Leasing on a reasonable 24-month lease at £144 per month and with an initial payment of £720.

Deal of the week

If you need off-road ability above all else in a large SUV, then few cars compare to Toyota’s Land Cruiser. Although a relatively expensive choice, we found models with hefty discounts from between £4,405 (D4D Active 3.0 3dr) to £7,597 (V8 ICE Premium) off-list price on Car Cost.

Our Verdict

Toyota Land Cruiser

The Toyota Land Cruiser is capable, but its rugged nature is better suited to Africa than the UK

Hi guys - thanks for adding our Seat Leon Deal here.

Just wanted to clarify that the deal we have is for a fully maintained package - so all servicing, and consumables like tyres, wipers, new lightbulbs are included in the package.
