First Time Car Leasing: What Car To Choose?

If it’s your first time car leasing, you might be wondering what car to choose. There are a wide variety of vehicles out there to choose form, but we believe that the cars listed below would be an excellent choice for any driver. If you would like to discuss our car leasing deals on any of these models, please do get in touch.

A Quick Recap On Car Leasing

Before we get into our car recommendations, it’s probably worth having a quick recap of what car leasing is and how it can benefits drivers. If this is your first time car leasing, you need to be sure of what you’re signing up for. At its most basic, car leasing can be compared to renting a house. For a set period of time, each month you will pay a predetermined amount of money in return for the privilege of driving a new, modern car. For a larger initial deposit, you can reduce this monthly cost but at no point do you actually own the car.

Mileage also has a role to play as the value of a car depreciates the more it is driven. At the start of your contract you will be asked to estimate your annual mileage. The higher this figure is, the higher the monthly payments. The average annual mileage of a UK car is 10-12,000 miles a year.

The average length of a car leasing contract is 48 months but they can vary between 24 and 60. At the end of the contract you have two options. Either you sign a new contract for the latest model of a car of your choosing, or you walk away.
