How to Find the Best Cars to Lease

Looking into Car Leasing?

Leasing is one of the most affordable ways to drive a brand-new vehicle. Instead of paying the extortionate outright costs that aren't an option for everyone, the best lease deals come with monthly rentals that will never change throughout your contract, giving you peace of mind. Once you've decided on a car leasing deal, it can be hard to decide which make and model is the best for you. To find the best cars to lease, there are a few factors that you need to consider.

Here at MW Vehicle Contracts (MWVC), we provide a wide variety of car, van and pickup leasing deals perfect for your budget, preferences and even your business if you're seeking a vehicle on business lease. We have a helpful tool that you can use if you're struggling to choose the best car lease deal. If you'd rather discuss your options, our friendly sales team are here to help... 

Pick a Body Type

Different car body types work better for different people. For instance, someone with a larger family might be on the lookout for an SUV or an estate, perfect in terms of size and space. Single people or couples may opt for a simple hatchback or a coupe; the latter is a great choice for anyone who wants to drive in style without paying too much outright. You can even opt for electric or hybrid variations if you're looking to lower your carbon footprint. If you value style and class over everything, prestige and luxury saloons could be the perfect choice for you.

We have a vast collection of body types here at MWVC, some of which are on special offer, helping you cut the cost and drive the car you want without compromising. If you're on the lookout for a large hatchback, we currently have the all-new Suzuki S-Cross for just £229* per month inc. VAT. You can discover more of our car leasing special offers here.

Set Your Budget and Term

Although leasing is one of the cheapest ways to drive a brand-new vehicle, you still need to be realistic and set a monthly budget that you can comfortably afford. Before you start your monthly rentals, you will pay an initial rental which is either three, six or nine times the amount of the monthly rentals. The higher the amount you pay for your initial rental, the cheaper your monthly rentals will be. By using our handy tool, you can choose your desired base price and price range to find a car suitable for you.

If you don't have a large budget, the all-new Vauxhall Corsa is only £162.98* per month inc. VAT. Your new car will be completely brand new, with no previous owners and no MOT for the first three years, perfect if your contract is three years or less. We have terms ranging from 24 to 48 months, and at the end of your contract, you simply hand the car over and opt for a brand new vehicle on an entirely new contract.

How Many Miles Will You Do?

How many miles you plan to do in your brand-new vehicle can also affect your monthly rentals. Of course, it can be hard to know exactly how many miles you plan to do. This is an important factor to think about when looking for a company car. If you have a rough estimate, you can discuss your contract with a dedicated salesperson who can advise you on the very best vehicle. If you exceed your mileage limit, then you don't need to worry. Excess mileage charges are usually incredibly reasonable, and are around 7 to 15 pence per mile.

Fuel and Transmission

In today's age, more and more people are beginning to care about the fuel they put into their vehicles. Many of us are looking for sustainable alternatives to typical diesel and petrol, but others are still sticking to what they know best. The fuel you put into your car does not necessarily affect the rentals, so when you're looking for the best cars to lease, you don't need to worry. Also, no matter whether you want an automatic or a manual car, we've got the perfect deal for you.

Here at MWVC, we have a vast collection of electric and hybrid vehicles perfect for anyone looking to lower their carbon footprint. If you'd rather discuss your options with us, please give us a call on 0116 259 9548 to discover the best cars to lease that suit your preferences.
