Autocar has rounded up the best new car deals for this week.
With flexible interest rates and discounts available from dealerships keen to push up new car sales, smart motorists can find themselves a great new car deal by shopping around. If you're tempted by a new model, here are Autocar's top leasing and new car purchase deals for this week:
Britain’s best-selling car, the Ford Fiesta, has rarely sold at list price; today, even post-facelift, the discounts are strong. As a result, dealers should be pushed hard, and your best haggling tool is some prior research with an internet broker. Taking a high-spec Ford Fiesta 1.0T 125 Ecoboost Titanium three-door as an example, we found broker orangewheels.co.uk offering one for £12,909, a discount of £2537. Before you sign up to that deal, though, try and find a Ford dealer willing to beat it. Yes, they really do want your custom that much.
The Dacia Duster may be the standard-bearer for the whole Dacia range, but that doesn’t mean its makers aren’t keen to snare buyers. So keen, in fact, that with a down payment, end payment and a willingness to take on finance, you can now have a base 1.6v 105 Access trim 4x2 model for £99 a month over four years. You need to put down a £3112 deposit, however, and make a final payment to own the car, but there's inclusive servicing for three years. Be warned, the finance side to this deal does raise what you pay over the lease term way beyond the Dacia's list purchase price. Full details – including similarly keen deals on higher-spec cars – can be obtained from all Dacia dealers.
The VW Golf remains a staple of the best-sellers' list, but don’t let that discourage you from haggling or exploring internet broker options. Online broker coast2coastcars.co.uk is offering between £1000 and £2500 discounts on a vast majority of cars in the range, peaking with £2507 off the DSG-equipped 1.4 TSI Bluemotion Tech GT, now at £22,067.
