Best lease deals of the week: City cars

Leasing can be an affordable, practical route into having your own private car, but it’s not always easy to tell the good deals from the duds. 

The experts at our sister magazine What Car? work hard to find you the best pay-monthly schemes, taking into account mileage allowance, montly outlay, contract length and initial deposit. We’ll be bringing you the best deals they find from a different segment each week.

This week, it’s city cars: 

1. Kia Picanto 1.0

£121 per month, £727 deposit, 48 months, 8000 miles per year 

In a highly competitive class, the Kia Picanto is a strong contender. This model’s three-pot engine is well suited to town driving but, for longer journeys, the more powerful four-cylinder is preferable.

2. Fiat 500 1.2 Pop

£122 per month, £734 deposit, 48 months, 8000 miles per year 

Having first arrived in 2007, the Fiat 500 is due to be replaced later this year, so there are tempting lease deals to be had. Despite its advancing years, the 500 remains one of the most popular city cars on sale.

3. Hyundai 1.0 S

£129 per month, £772 deposit, 48 months, 10,000 miles per year 

The previous i10 used to be our favourite city car but the sector is more competitive than ever now. This new model is perfectly adequate, but with a bland cabin and unengaging handling, it’s no class leader.

4. Vauxhall Adam 1.2 Energised

£129 per month, £772 deposit, 48 months, 10,000 miles per year 

Not as good to drive as some of its rivals and cramped in the back, even for a city car, the Adam majors instead on personalisation. There are 12 body colours to choose from, plus contrast roofs and decal packs.

5. Seat Mii 1.0 Design

£151 per month, £910 deposit, 36 months, 8000 miles per year 

The Seat Mii – along with the Volkswagen Up and Skoda Citigo that are indistinguishable beneath the skin – is the best city car on sale right now. It combines grown-up motorway manners with lively handling.

6. Suzuki Ignis 1.2 Dualjet SZ3

£153 per month, £919 deposit, 36 months, 10,000 miles per year 

With chunky mini-SUV styling, the Ignis is one of the more distinctive city cars of the moment. Even entry-level SZ3 trim has air-con, electric windows and Bluetooth. Good but not exceptional to drive.
