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

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.

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.

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.

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.

How can I save money insuring an old car?

How can I save money insuring an old car?
Shopping around for quotes should help keep the price down. Things like having a garage to store it in and limiting the mileage can also help.

My wife only has a provisional license, should I add her as a named driver to my policy to save money?

I recently leased a second car and own a 2010 Hyundai i30 outright. I would like to give the i30 to my wife, but she only has a provisional licence. Should I retain both cars and simply add her to the insurance, or am I better 'selling' the car to her and letting her own it? Which is likely the cheapest route from an insurance perspective?
Retain both cars and put her on as a provisional driver. This is certainly the cheapest way of doing it. If you do it the other way, she will have no No Claims Bonus and will be the main driver. As a result the premium will be much much higher because she will be seen as higher risk.

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.
