5 of the Best Lease Deals Available

5 of the Best Lease Deals Available

At AVL, we pride ourselves on providing incredible deals on vehicles of all kinds. From business van contracts to Electric car leases for the individual, and everything in between, we’ve got something for everyone when it comes to leasing a vehicle.

In this blog, we’re going to take a look at which cars are great for the city in the UK, and where you can lease one. 

Let’s start with German Giants, Volkswagen, and the excellent VW up!

  • Volkswagen up!

When looking for city car lease deals, the Volkswagen up! has plenty to offer. From style, practicality to fun, it’s also highly efficient, reactive around corners and economical on fuel.

Despite its small size, it’s actually super spacious inside, with comfortable seats and more legroom than you’d expect. Being a VW, it’s also a little more more sophisticated than many other urban cars available in the UK due to the quality of the engineering. 

It’s an enjoyable drive and although it was designed primarily for towns and city driving, it handles very well on the motorway and can comfortably reach higher speeds.

2016 saw an upgrade to the up! Such as smartphone sat-nav system as standard, as well as a plethora of other technological and mechanical updates. 

You can lease the Volkswagen up! From AVL, with affordable deals starting at £165.16 per month.

  • Audi A1

If your aim is leasing a small city car with a luxurious feel and a glamorous badge, then the Audi A1 is a vehicle in its own class. 

This car offers a smooth and controlled ride, which can be somewhat of a novelty when looking for small cars. It’s great for business or pleasure and you feel the benefit of it Audi’s high-class engineering and luxurious feel throughout. 

Not only does the A1 provide a smooth ride light enough on city roads, but it also has enough weight to handle motorway speeds with confidence. 

Slightly more high-end than a lot of other cars built for the city, this one qualifies as both a car for the city and a motorway vehicle, and is a really special, iconic vehicle, perfect for leasing.

We provide fantastic car lease deals on the Audi A1 here at AVL, with prices starting at £209.08 per month.

  • Nissan Micra

The Nissan Micra has come a long way from its old bubble-design and now has an exterior made for the modern city. 

Previously, the Micra had been built for South American and Asian markets primarily, but the latest model is designed to meet the needs of Europe. Long story short? It’s longer, wider, lower, more efficient, and better equipped to handle UK roads.

This means that it’s ideal for first car buyers due to how affordable it is, as well as more experienced drivers looking for a car for business or personal use. This boost in usage and popularity is evident from the 44% leap in sales in 2017 compared to the previous year. 

One of the weaknesses of the older edition was the engine range, or should we say, lack of range. However, the new 1.0 litre, turbocharged petrol three-cylinder engine and a six-speed, manual gearbox, gives you much more bang for your buck.

It’s also affordable. Take a look at the car lease options for the new Nissan Micra, available with AVL here from £182.49 per month.

  • Fiat 500

If you’re looking for a city car lease with a vintage, retro feel, then there aren’t many cars for the Fiat 500 to compete with. And this one is performs as strongly as it looks. 

For a smaller car, the 500 excels in every test and is a fantastic leasing option. Directional changes are keen and quick thanks to its light steering, and 360 visibility is great thanks to the design of the exterior and interior of this modern-day, Italian classic. 

The ride is smooth and comfortable over bumpy roads, and it can even handle itself at higher speeds. 

This makes the Fiat 500 one of the most distinctive cars available for the city, and it’s absolutely beautiful on the inside and out, with a real attention to detail.

We provide a range of leasing options for the Fiat 500 here at AVL, with a contract to suit any budget.

  • Citroen C1

The Citroen C1 has distinctive styling with contrasting trim and colour options giving the car a cheerful vibe. 

It’s therefore a chic and pretty little car and is ideal for short journeys through towns and the urban environment. 

It’s packed to the brim with special tech and new features when compared to its predecessor, all of which makes for an exciting, fashionable city car, ideal for business or personal use.

Take a look at the Citroen C1 lease deals available with AVL, with prices starting from £149.29 per month.
