Top 3 Cheapest Cars

When it comes to getting a car, it can end up being quite expensive; even more so if you’re planning on buying outright or putting down a hefty deposit. Luckily, with no deposit car leasing, you can save yourself a lot of stress and money. We’ve had a look at the very cheapest of the cheap when it comes to car leasing, so you can save yourself even more money! Remember, all of lease cars are available as zero deposit car leasing choices.

Volkswagen Up!
For drivers who want to save money but still want a high-quality car, then the Up is the perfect choice. The Up is a superb city car that is remarkably cheap to run. From the cost of leasing, to virtually non-existent taxing, and low running costs, it’s the best choice for those on a tight budget. You’ll make even more savings too if you got for one of the BlueMotion Tech models, and road tax is completely free. The only downside for the Up is that it does struggle when you take it up to motorway speeds. Cruising around the city however, isn’t a problem at all. The Up is easy to drive, tackles corners confidently, and is super easy to park.

Skoda Citigo
Another contender for the best city car on the market (and one of the cheapest) is the Citigo. It shares a few physical aspects with the Seat Mii and Volkswagen Up, so you know it’s a high-quality vehicle. Incredibly refined and hugely practical, the Citigo is actually surprisingly spacious, given how small of a size it is. This wonderfully practical car has both 3 and 5 door versions available, both of which come with a nippy little 1 litre 3-cylinder engine, 59bhp and 74bhp respectively. On top of all these great points, the Citigo is incredibly cheap to run, and comes with bags of charisma and style.

Toyota Aygo
Another great little city that’s tonnes of fun to drive, is the Toyota Aygo. The great thing about the Aygo is its simplicity and high performance. So although it may be simple to drive, you still get all the quality of bigger and more expensive car. On top of this, it’s cheap to run and tax, so you’ll never have to stress about budget! You can save even more money by going for one of the mid-range trims which are cheaper, but don’t sacrifice too much of the equipment inside. The Aygo can get a little bumpy at times when driving along on uneven roads, and the steering is a bit heavy. But on the plus side it carries speed well into corners and handles itself very well, with a great amount of body control.

Volkswagen Up: Review

White Volkswagen Up

The Volkswagen Up is the perfect, high quality, city car, with a sophisticated look and easy drive for those who regularly frequent the city. The Up takes an intelligent approach to driving, making it a highly appealing car, and a top contender against the likes of the VW Polo.

Performance & Drive
The Volkswagen Up offers drivers a choice of two petrol engines; the 6-bhp and 75bhp. However, whichever version you decide to go for, you won’t be disappointed, as the Up always performs to its best, and is outstanding when in urban environments. The downside for the petrol options is that neither are overly brisk, and they struggle a little at motorway speeds. Accelerating within the city however, is no problem at all.

Reliability & Safety
The Up is known to be one of the safest cars on the market, which is heavily due to the clever safety feature systems which are installed. For example, the emergency braking system is incredibly useful at deterring accidents. The system works by reviewing the road in front of the car, and applying the brakes if the scanner senses an imminent collision. This super reliable city is also the choice to go for if you’re looking to save come cash, as it was voted third best for the lowest running costs.

Design & Style
Despite the small size of the Up, there are plenty of customisation options available to drivers, which more than makes up for any lack of space. There are a wide range of colours and alloy wheels available, plus plenty of us personalisation options. Whichever you opt for, the Up still has a funky and innovative style, with its piano black finish on the interior which creates a sophisticated vibe. There are three main trim levels of the Volkswagen up, which all come with a decent amount of standard equipment included.

Ownership
Known for its strong resale value, the Up’s classiness is hard to beat, even with the Skoda Citigo and Seat Mii. Ultimately, the Up makes for an incredible city car, and is one of Volkswagen’s best-selling models. On the plus side, the Up is remarkably cheap to run too, especially on the BlueMotion Tech models. So if you’re look for savings and great economy, make sure you opt for a BlueMotion Tech version. CO2 emissions are also considerably low, which means free road tax.

The Volkswagen Up is also available on a zero deposit car lease, so you can save even more money when car leasing in Blackburn.
