New Car Deals

Below are deals on new cars that we think are worth highlighting. If you're looking to cut costs to the bone, we've uncovered cars that you can drive for less than £100 per month, but if you're looking to buy something bigger or more expensive, we have those deals covered too - in depth - in our Cheap Car Finance section.

PCP Car Finance: Small cars for under £100 a month

We've looked all over to find you the best offers on small cars. PCP deals aren't for everyone, but if you're after low monthly payments and want a new car, they can be cost effective. These are the cheapest we currently know of:

The car The PCP finance deal

Dacia Sandero 

Dacia Sandero Ambience SCe 75

The Dacia Sandero is a refreshingly straightforward and affordable car, compared to other 'value' alternatives, with prices starting from less than £7500. It's quite a lot more practical than similarly priced cars like the Citroen C1, plus it's cheap to run and easy to drive – which makes it a great choice for the budget-conscious buyer.

Our full review of the Dacia Sandero here 

Monthly payment: £99

Cash price: £7795

Customer deposit: £1454

Dealer deposit contribution: £250

Total deposit: £1704

Duration: 36 months/annual mileage: 6000

Total amount of credit: £6091 at 4.9% APR representative, optional final payment: £3220

Total payable by customer: £8487, excess mileage fee: 8p per mile

Celerio

Suzuki Celerio 1.0 SZ2

While the Suzuki Celerio isn't the most interesting car in its class, it’s claimed to average 65.7mpg and is cheap to maintain. All in, it's an affordable little runabout and a great choice for those trying to keep costs low. It doesn’t have much kit in SZ2 trim, which is featured in this deal, but you do get the basics and a DAB radio.

Our full review of the Suzuki Celerio here 

Monthly payment: £89

Cash price: £7499

Customer deposit: £1740

Dealer deposit contribution: £0

Total deposit: £1740

Total payable by customer: £8477, excess mileage fee: 7p per mile

Ford Ka Plus

Ford Ka+ Studio 1.2 Ti-VCT 70PS

The Ka+ is the cheapest new Ford and a serviceable little hatchback to boot. It isn't the most exciting car to drive, by any stretch, but it won’t break the bank. The Ka+ is available on a PCP deal that costs £99 a month over two years, following a customer deposit of £3579. That’s a hefty amount to put down but this Ka+ does come with lots of kit, including a DAB radio, air-con and cruise control.

Total payable by customer: £11,100, excess mileage fee: 7.2p per mile

I 10

Hyundai i10 S 1.0 66PS

The i10 is a handsome hatchback that offers up an impressive amount of space and a good quality interior. It’s also decent to drive and ultimately, as a result of its impressive credentials, it won our Most Popular City Car award in 2017. Go for a three-year PCP deal and, after putting down £2600, you could drive one for £99 a month.

Monthly payment: £99

Cash price: £8995

Customer deposit: £2600

Dealer deposit contribution: £250

Total deposit: £2850

Total payable by customer: £9700, excess mileage fee: 9p per mile

Kia Picanto (2) (2)

Kia Picanto 1.0 66PS

The Picanto is a smart-looking, capable small car – and an very reasonably priced one at that. This deal on a five-door ‘2’ model, with air-con, features monthly payments of £97 over three years. You'll have to stump up a deposit of £3000 but, should you decide that you want the car at the end of the contract, you’ll benefit further from the remainder of the Kia’s seven-year warranty.

I am buying a new car - what is the best way to insure it until I sell the old one?

I am buying a car from my dad - a 2013 Volkswagen Golf - and then selling my current car privately. I expect to have both cars for about a month in total. What is the best way to insure them while I have two?
You can either insure them separately, or on your existing policy. If you do not have long left on your old policy, contact them and request proof of no claims for the new insurer and policy - then run both policies parallel to each other. If you are at the start of the policy, put your new vehicle on that policy, insurers generally will allow you to have both vehicles on the same policy from a few weeks to a month.

How much would a decent dash cam cost?

What would be the cost of a reasonably priced, good dash camera?
I'd say to get a good dash cam you'd need to spend at least £30. You can definitely get them for less, but the footage quality isn't always great. For an extra tenner, it's worth knowing you can see the reg number or particular details in the event of an accident. The Aukey DR01 is currently £50 on Amazon right now, but we've seen it as low as £38. It's not got many features but the footage quality is very decent, review here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/AUKEY-Supercapacitor-Dashboard-Recording-Dual-Port-Black/dp/B01LWN99YA/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1531131508&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=aukey+dr01&psc=1 Obviously if you spend more, you'll get better footage quality and features (like GPS, WiFi etc). But if you just want a basic camera, you can find a host of good ones for less than £50 on Amazon. Check out our top ten best dash cams under £50: https://kit.honestjohn.co.uk/top-tens/top-10-dash-cams-under-50-1/ Alternatively, you can take a look at the reviews of all the dash cams we've tested for a variety of prices: https://kit.honestjohn.co.uk/category/dash-cams/

What dash cam would you recommend for £100?

I would like to buy a dash cam, paying a maximum of £100. Could you recommend one, please? I want one that will record decent images in all light situations.
£100 is a great budget for a dash camera, you'll find plenty that have good features and image quality. A Nextbase 412GW is a good buy and available for £100 if you shop around, or you can save a bit of money and go for the very discreet Anker Roav. This has a design that means it can be easily hidden from view. It's around £80, leaving enough money to get it professionally hard-wired.
