The Jaguar XF offers one of the most sublime driving experiences in its class
From the Volkswagen Up, which offers a simple yet refined urban experience, to the luxurious Jaguar XF, there are currently some great deals out there for just about every car and in every class.
The UK car market is showing good signs of recovery, with the latest figures pointing to 18 consecutive months of growth. Dealers will be keen to make sure their forecourts remain full, which means you can save a fortune by doing your research before heading to the showrooms.
Autocar has done the hard work for you, though, and below are some of the best new car deals and the best new car leasing deals we found this week.
Best new car deals
The Toyota Auris Touring Sports offers low running costs and plenty of space in its 530-litre boot. A current offer we found from UK Car Discount gets you a 1.8-litre VVT-i Hybrid five-door estate model in Excel trim, which grants you features like leather trim and satellite navigation for only £20,886. That's a saving of £2359 from the car's £23,245 list price.
At the other end of the spectrum, the Toyota GT86 offers one of the most accessible sports car experiences around. Orange Wheels is currently offering a top-spec D-4S Auto Coupé with optional extras including leather trim and satellite navigation for just £25,556 - a saving of £3289 from the £28,845 list price.
Best new car leasing deals
The Honda Civic is a versatile and engaging hatchback and easily rivals both the Ford Focus and VW Golf. Leasing deals are easy to come by on this popular hatchback, with the £179.81 per month offer we found from Park Vehicle Contracts being just one example. The contract is over three and a half years, and includes an initial charge of £1078.86 and a 10,000-mile annual limit.
For basic motoring on a budget, it's hard to beat the Volkswagen Up, which is now available for £72.94 per month from National Vehicle Solutions. The contract term is for 36 months, and includes an initial rental cost of £1800 with an annual mileage limit of 10,000. Watch out for equally good offers on the Up's siblings, too, in the form of the Skoda Citigo and Seat Mii.
Deal of the week
The Jaguar XF is a sublime British executive saloon which has a tremendous interior and even greater dynamics. It's also the subject of many good deals at the moment, such as the one we found from Orange Wheels, granting us a 2.2-litre diesel in Luxury spec for £29,284 - a massive £3562 saving.
