What could you spend £10 on? A DVD, perhaps, or a small round of drinks on a night out. But if you can afford to put aside £10 every day, you can treat yourself to a new car. And we’re not talking budget city cars either. We’ve outlined some of the best deals available on new cars available for around £10 a day.
BMW 218i M Sport Gran Tourer: £9.32 a day
Haters gonna hate, but the 2 Series Gran Tourer is actually rather good. Enjoy the driving experience of a BMW, while having enough room to transport the entire family. BMW currently has a contract hire offer on its 2 Series Gran Tourer. Following an initial payment of £4,999, you can drive a 218i M Sport Gran Tourer for £289 a month.
Audi A3 Cabriolet: £9.65 a day
Fancy some roof-down motoring this summer? Audi is offering the A3 Cabriolet S Line Navigation with the 1.4-litre petrol engine through its Solutions PCP scheme for £299 per month. The customer deposit is a hefty £5,579.41 – but, the firm points out, it is flexible. Pay more each month and you pay less deposit.
Toyota GT86 Primo: £9.67 a day
The entry-level Toyota GT86 Primo is available for £22,495 outright – but a play with the firm’s finance calculator reveals you can pick one up for £300 per month, as long as you can stretch to a £4,841.15 deposit. That’s over 35 months, at a finance rate of 4.9% APR. Mileage is limited to 8,000 miles a year.
Ford Fiesta ST: £9.22 a day
This is a very tempting proposition – one of our favourite hot hatches, available for just £285.75 per month, with an affordable £1,000 deposit. That’s stretched over three years through Ford’s Options finance plan, with a mileage cap of 12,000 miles a year and an optional final payment of £6,203.
Vauxhall Mokka: £9.27 a day
Vauxhall’s Mokka SUV is incredibly popular, no doubt in part down to the excellent value for money it represents. Through the company’s flexible finance scheme, you can tailor a quote to suit you, and enjoy 0% APR interest. So, following a deposit of £1,500, you can drive a Mokka Exclusiv with the 1.6-litre petrol engine for £287.49 a month. That’s over 60 months.
Mercedes-Benz GLA: £9.65 a day
No other type of vehicle is as trendy as a crossover – and you can ‘buy’ one sporting a Mercedes badge for less than £10 per day. That’s for a GLA 200d Sport, following a deposit of £2,999 with the rest split over 48 months, resulting in monthly payments of £299. Mileage is limited to 10,000 per year, and there’s an optional purchase payment of £12,625 at the end of the agreement.

That’s over 49 months, with a final payment of £9,154 if you want to keep the car.
Mazda MX-5: £8.55 a day
We’re sure Mazda doesn’t have to try hard to peddle its fourth-generation MX-5 at the moment – but that isn’t stopping it offer a very tempting 0% APR finance deal on a 1.5-litre SE. The catch? You need a 50% deposit of £9,625. But if you can afford that, you can enjoy monthly payments of £265 over three years.
Mitsubishi ASX: £8.14 a day
Despite being around for a few years now, the ASX is an underrated crossover in our opinion. And following a deposit contribution of £1,000 from your dealer, you can pick up a 1.6-litre petrol in ZC trim for £252.44 a month, plus an initial payment of just £1,000. That’s over 37 months with a final payment of £6,100.
Nissan Leaf: £9.38 a day
Ready to try an electric car as transport? Nissan has some very tempting offers on its popular Leaf. Through its finance scheme, it’s offering a 24KWh Leaf Acenta for £290.68 a month, and it’ll even contribute £5,000 towards a deposit between Nissan and the dealer. That means you don’t have to put any money down upfront – and less than £10 a day for electric motoring. If you have a lengthy commute, you might save that in fuel.
Land Rover Discovery Sport: £9.65 a day
It might no longer sport the Freelander badge, but that hasn’t made the entry-level Land Rover any less affordable. Through the company’s Freedom PCP scheme, you can buy a Discovery Sport 2.0 TD4 180 SE for £299 a month over three years, following a deposit of £9,770. A hefty deposit, admittedly, but if you’ve got a trade- in, it could work for you.
Jeep Wrangler: £9.65 a day
Now that Land Rover no longer sells the Defender, you’ll have to look elsewhere if you want an iconic off-roader. Jeep is offering a 3.6-litre V6 Wrangler Sahara through its Horizon PCP deal, split over four years. The firm will contribute £1,500 towards your deposit, meaning you’ll have to stump up £7,089 upfront. Interest works out at 4.81% APR.
Toyota RAV4 hybrid: £10.32 a day
Toyota is known for its efficient hybrids, and its new RAV4 should prove to be a very sensible purchase. You can pick up a RAV4 Business Edition Plus with the hybrid powertrain for £320 a month, following a deposit of £3,535. That’s split over two years with interest at 0% APR.

MG6: £9.67 a day
The MG6 isn’t the most convincing car on sale, but it does represent a lot of physical vehicle for the money. The boot is huge, and MG’s offering a tempting 0% finance deal across the range. That means you can pick up a top-spec MG6 TL for £299.92 a month over 48 months, following a deposit of £3,599.

Hyundai Tucson: £10.04 a day
Whisper it, but we’d probably take the Hyundai Tucson over the ever-popular Nissan Qashqai. With no deposit, you can drive away in a Tucson S 1.7 CRDi for £311.16 a month. That’s split over 49 months with interest at 6.9% APR. If you can stump up a deposit, you can make the period shorter, or even get it with 0% interest.

DS4 Crossback: £10.32 a day
The DS4 Crossback is little more than a jacked-up DS4, which in itself isn’t the most competitive car in its segment. But it’s unusual, and you can stand out for £320 a month through Citroen’s PCP scheme. That’s over 48 months, following a deposit of £3,165.48, at 4.9% APR.
Infiniti Q50: £9.32 a day
Talking of standing out… the Infiniti Q50 is a rival to the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4. It’s not as good to drive as either, but it does look good. And at £289 a month for a 2.2 diesel Exec, it’s a tempting proposition. You’ll need a deposit of £5,480.09 and there’s an optional final payment of £9,843.00 should you decide to keep the car.
Jaguar XE: £10.61 a day
Slightly over our budget, but the XE is such an impressive car we couldn’t not include it. For that you get the 163hp 2.0-litre turbodiesel, in Prestige trim with a manual gearbox. You’ll need a deposit of £4,999 and interest works out at 4.78%.
Skoda Octavia: £9.32 a day
The Skoda Octavia has always represented excellent value for money. Currently, the manufacturer is offering the Octavia through its Solutions PCP for £289 a month, following a deposit of £289 (plus £2,000 from Skoda). That’s over 42 months for a 1.4-litre TSI hatch with metallic paint.
Renaultsport Clio 220 Trophy: £9.77 a day
We’ll end with this sporty little number – the hot Renaultsport Clio. It’ll hit 62mph in 6.6 seconds, and is good for a top speed of 146mph. But you can buy one for £303 a month, over 49 months, following a deposit of £1,000. That works out at 5.9% APR, and you’ll pay £8,575 if you want to keep it at the end of the finance term.
