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 Ford Mondeo is our favourite family saloon, and even though it's due for replacement soon the Ford is still a class leader in all the right areas. This 2.0-litre TDCi model in Graphite specification from Motorparks costs £16,972, a saving of £1,223 from the list price.
The Volkswagen Golf is consistently a top scorer on our road tests, and currently sits at the top of our list of the best family hatchbacks. We spotted a 2.0-litre TDI version in GTD specification for £25,162 on Buy A New Car Online. That's a saving of £2473 from the list price.
Best new car leasing deals
Infiniti's Q50 is a somewhat alternative choice for fleet buyers, but there's no denying it's a relatively comfortable and economical saloon. We found a 2.2-litre CDI model in SE trim for £304.52 per month. That's on a four-year contract with Albion Vehicles and with an initial payment of £1827.12.
For those looking for a stylish family mover, the Volvo V60 ticks almost all the right boxes. This D2 model in R-design trim from Applied Leasing costs £238.80 on a four-year contract, with an initial payment of £1432.80 and an annual mileage limit of 10,000.
Deal of the week
Our long-term Mazda 6 has seen plenty of miles over almost a year with the Autocar fleet. In saloon form its boot is cavernous enough, but for even more space there's always the estate version. This 2.0-litre Tourer in SE-L Nav trim is £17,779 when bought through Buyacar.co.uk, a saving of almost 20 per cent from the list price.
