The thought of putting on your negotiation hat before walking into your local car dealership might feel a little overwhelming, but the truth is that most carmakers are happy to let you take advantage of a deal; after all, you’re more likely to come back for servicing with them or find a second car from their showroom if you leave with a smile on your face.
It might seem like the sort of thing that would only work with an unpopular vehicle, but three of the current best deals for new cars are right in the UK’s bestsellers list. You’ll mostly be offered such deals when looking at PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) or Hire Purchase (HP). Here are the top three to provide outstanding deals on 2016 cars, crossovers, and SUVs.
This is Britain’s bestselling car, but that doesn’t mean you’re going to struggle to get a good deal. At the end of the day, the Fiesta has an image to uphold. Choosing a high-spec Titanium trim puts features such as cruise control, automatic lights and wipers, and alloy wheels at your disposal, plus a potent 123 horsepower EcoBoost engine. You’ll get £1,000 off the list price, plus a £900 deposit contribution. You can even snag satellite navigation and DAB radio for just £299 – that’s a £201 saving on the standard price.
The Ford Fiesta isn’t the only intensely popular model that is being offered across the UK for a competitive price. Truth be told, the Qashqai is currently available with 0% APR and a deposit contribution, though this generous summer sale finishes soon. If you’d like the 113 horsepower Acenta trim you’ll receive a stunning £1,250 deposit contribution. Adding £4,963 of your own money and the vehicle will be yours with monthly payments of just £149 over three years, with an optional payment of £8,633 at the end of the contract to make it yours for keeps.
The Mokka isn’t quite as well-known as the Fiesta or the Qashqai, but it’s still the 10th most popular new car in the UK. Even better, it is currently available with a £3,000 deposit contribution on Vauxhall’s Flexible PCP package. You can add a £2,739 deposit yourself to result in 35 monthly payments of £241, which is an excellent deal for a modern SUV. After the lease term ends, hand over £6,099 to make it yours outright.
