2018 Honda CRV

New Honda CR-V prices from £25,995 – or £279 a month

2018 Honda CRVThe new Honda CR-V begins arriving in dealers from September 2018, and to prepare for its debut, Honda has released full pricing details of the all-new family-sized five- and seven-seat SUV.

The new 2018 CR-V range is priced from £25,995 for a punchy 173hp turbocharged 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol, in base S grade. Standard kit includes the comprehensive Honda Sensing active safety pack, plus a rear-view camera.

However, more customers are expected to pick a higher-spec CR-V. The 1.5 SE costs from £27,855, and includes extra features, and it can also be taken in 4WD guise, for an extra £1,100.

The SE 4WD offers an optional CVT automatic too, which is priced from £31,265. That’s a little bit of a jump, but the 1.5-litre turbo does receive a power boost when paired with the auto, up to 193hp. It has more pulling power as well.

There is a fuel economy penalty from the combination of CVT and 4WD, mind. The base 2WD CR-V averages 44.8mpg and emits 143g/km. Pick and auto and average economy calls to 39.8mpg, while CO2 emissions go up to 162g/km.

Oh, and don’t mention the ‘d’ word: there won’t be a diesel version of the new CR-V. Instead, Honda will roll out a clever petrol-electric hybrid early next year.

As for model grades, while S and SE are the entry-level cars, Honda expects greater volumes from SR and EX variants – particularly the former. The SR features leather seats, keyless entry and start, plus active cornering lights, while the EX adds panoramic glass roof, head-up display, heated rear seats and a power tailgate.

Early PCP finance deals are also out. Honda is offering the SR AWD manual (list price £31,435) for £279 a month, on a three-year, 10,000-mile contract, at 6.2 percent APR.

But if that doesn’t sound very good to you, and you’re not bothered about having the latest thing, then get ready to act fast. The current CR-V, pictured below, is still available in dealers – and a 2.0 EX 4WD with metallic paint can be had for £299 a month, on 0 percent APR, with a £1,000 deposit contribution from Honda AND an extra £1,000 simply for taking a test drive.

You can even buy five years’ servicing for £599. Still desperate to have the latest thing?

Summer 2018 special offers: the hottest new car deals

The summer’s hottest new car deals

Thanks to Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) deals, it’s never been easier – or cheaper – to get your hands on a new car. If you fancy driving away in a new car this summer, here are some of the offers being offered by manufacturers, including test drive incentives, deposit contributions and straightforward discounts.

SEAT Ibiza: £1,500 deposit contribution plus an extra £500

The summer’s hottest new car deals

The SEAT Ibiza is relatively new to the market, so it’s surprising to see such a generous discount on the ‘Spanish Polo’. Take a test drive between now and the end of September and you’ll receive a £500 discount should you make a purchase. This is in addition to a £1,500 deposit contribution and one year’s free insurance. Monthly payments start from £199.

Alfa Romeo Stelvio: £3,500 deposit contribution

The summer’s hottest new car deals

If you fancy a SUV, but don’t fancy following the crowd, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio might be the car for you. Right now, if you order a 2.2-litre turbodiesel Q4 Speciale on a PCP plan, Alfa Romeo will add £3,500 to your deposit of £6,995. The monthly payment is £426 spread over four years, but the package includes a five-year warranty, free servicing for three years and breakdown cover for five years.

Audi A7 Sportback S Line: £5,700 deposit contribution

The summer’s hottest new car deals

Another relatively new car, but Audi isn’t shy about coming forward with a hefty deposit contribution. Order an A7 Sportback S Line on a PCP deal and Audi will contribute £5,700 towards your deposit. In common with many of the offers, finance is subject to status and available to motorists aged 18 and over.

Fiat Panda Pop: £2,015 customer saving

The summer’s hottest new car deals

In its basic Pop form, the Fiat Panda features body-coloured bumpers, four airbags, Uconnect, Bluetooth, USB and central locking. At £9,510, it’s rather expensive for a long in the tooth city car, but a £2,015 discount equates to a more reasonable £7,495.

Suzuki Baleno: save up to £2,500

The summer’s hottest new car deals

The Suzuki Baleno is a great value and practical hatchback, which is also surprisingly good to drive when powered by the 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine. Right now, Suzuki is offering a £2,500 discount on SZ-T and SZ5 models, or £2,000 off the price of the entry-level SZ3. This means the range starts from £10,999.

Skoda Fabia: £2,000 deposit contribution and 3.9% APR

The summer’s hottest new car deals

There’s an updated Skoda Fabia on the way in September, so dealers will be keen to shift stock of the outgoing model. Even before you start haggling, Skoda will contribute £2,000 towards the finance deposit, leaving you to pay £1,497.17, followed by 47 monthly payments of £179.

Fiat Tipo S-Design: £2,330 customer saving

The summer’s hottest new car deals

The Fiat Tipo S-Design features 18-inch diamond alloys, bi-xenon headlights, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rear-view camera, automatic climate control and Uconnect 7-inch touchscreen. Not bad in a car costing £18,150. Even better when Fiat removes £2,330 from the price.

Audi A6: £6,150 deposit contribution

The summer’s hottest new car deals

Audi is being extremely generous with its deposit contributions. For example, you can claim £6,150 on an A6 saloon or Avant, or as much as £7,500 off the price of an A6 Allroad. Opt for the recently released A8 and the deposit contribution is a massive £8,875.

Mazda CX-3: £1,750 deposit contribution

The summer’s hottest new car deals

The Mazda CX-3 is a stylish crossover that’s also great to drive. Order a CX-3 SE Nav on a PCP deal and Mazda will contribute £1,750, leaving you to find £3,001.50 and 42 payments of £199. Alternatively, if you’re after a 0% APR deal, Mazda will remove the deposit contribution, leaving you to pay £2,909 up front and £289 a month over two years.

Renault Captur: an extra £1,000 trade in

The summer’s hottest new car deals

Order a Captur between now and the end of the month and Renault will offer an extra £1,000 discount when you trade in your old car. On a four-year PCP deal, there’s no interest to pay, a low £199 deposit and monthly payments of £199.

Suzuki Ignis: save up to £2,000

The summer’s hottest new car deals

Until the new Jimny arrives in 2019, the Ignis remains the cutest and most desirable new Suzuki you can buy. It features more retro touches than you could shake a pogo stick at and more charm than Nigel Havers. Right now, Suzuki is offering a £2,000 discount on SZ-T and SZ5 models, or £1,500 off the SZ3.

Hyundai i10: £795 customer saving

The summer’s hottest new car deals

Buy a Hyundai i10 SE or Go SE on a PCP deal and you’ll receive a £795 deposit contribution. Alternatively, order the entry-level i10 S and the contribution drops to £700. The range starts from a little over £9,000.

Honda CR-V: £1,000 test-drive incentive and £1,000 deposit contribution

The summer’s hottest new car deals

If you were thinking of buying a Honda CR-V I-VTEC SE Plus Navi before taking a test drive, stop what you’re doing. That’s because Honda will knock £1,000 off the price if you take a test-drive, along with a £1,000 deposit contribution. You can also add a five-year servicing package for £599.

Toyota Verso Icon: £2,590 customer saving

The summer’s hottest new car deals

The trusty MPV is facing a fight for survival, but the Toyota Verso proves that there’s life in the old people carrier yet. Toyota is offering a £2,590 customer saving on the Verso Icon, which takes the price down to £18,030. The Icon features Toyota’s excellent Safety Sense package, a seven-inch touchscreen, dual-zone air conditioning and a reversing camera.

Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace: £2,500 deposit contribution and £500 test-drive incentive

The summer’s hottest new car deals

The Allspace is a more practical version of the Tiguan with the option of a third row of seats. Volkswagen will contribute £2,500 towards the cost of a four-year PCP deal, leaving you to find £6,106.76 and £265 a month. You can also save an additional £500 when you test-drive any Volkswagen SUV.

SEAT Leon: £2,250 deposit contribution and £500 test-drive incentive

The summer’s hottest new car deals

Remember that summer scorcher on the SEAT Ibiza? The discount on the Leon is even hotter. Not only will SEAT give you £2,250 towards the cost of your deposit, there’s an extra £500 discount when you take a test drive. Scorchio.

Nissan X-Trail: £4,250 deposit contribution

The summer’s hottest new car deals

You’ll need to find £4,589.14 for the deposit on a Nissan X-Trail N-Connecta dCi 130, but Nissan will add £4,250 to the mix. All of which means you’ll pay £356.14 a month for three years, with an optional final payment of £11,424.52. At least it’s not yet another Nissan Qashqai.

Jeep Cherokee: £8,050 deposit contribution

The summer’s hottest new car deals

With a deposit contribution this generous, Jeep might need to dress up as Father Christmas. Order a Cherokee Limited 2.2 on a 36-month PCP deal and Jeep will contribute £8,050 to the deal. There is a one catch: you’ll need to find £7,899 up front.

Honda Jazz: £1,000 test-drive incentive and £750 deposit contribution

The summer’s hottest new car deals

These test drive incentives sound like a good deal. In exchange for 60 minutes behind the wheel – and listening to a salesperson waffle on while you drive – manufacturers will shave a few quid off the price of a new car. In the case of the Honda Jazz, it’s a £1,000 discount, along with a £750 deposit contribution.

MG GS Excite: £1,000 deposit contribution

The summer’s hottest new car deals

Order an MG GS Excite between now and the end of September and you’ll receive £1,000 towards the cost of the deposit. This leaves you to find £1,305 up front and 47 monthly payments of £249. The total amount payable is £19,966.74 and you’re restricted to a paltry 6,000 miles per annum.

Suzuki Celerio: save £500

The summer’s hottest new car deals

The Suzuki Celerio is already one of Britain’s cheapest new cars, but that hasn’t stopped Suzuki taking £500 off the list price. It means that you can drive away in an entry-level SZ2 for £7,499, an SZ3 for £9,649, or an SZ4 for £10,949.

Lexus: £2,000 deposit contribution

The summer’s hottest new car deals

Lexus is offering a £2,000 deposit contribution across most of the range, with the exception of the LC and LS models. Cars must be registered and financed by 30 September on a 42-month Lexus Connect PCP plan.

Subaru XV: £1,000 deposit contribution

The summer’s hottest new car deals

The new Subaru XV is a far better prospect than the old model, so there’s never been a better time to buy this off-roader. Subaru is offering a £1,000 deposit contribution across the range, with monthly payments starting from £325.

Volvo: servicing offer

The summer’s hottest new car deals

Along with a range of standard PCP deals, Volvo is offering two servicing packs across the range. A three-year servicing deal costs £399, while five years will set you back £599. Vehicles must be ordered by the end of September.

Peugeot: two services for £99

The summer’s hottest new car deals

Meanwhile, Peugeot is offering two scheduled services for just £99. Peugeot’s excellent ‘Just add Fuel’ offer is also available.

Nissan GT-R: £5,000 deposit contribution

The summer’s hottest new car deals

This one might be a tad niche, but it’s good to know that you can claim a £5,000 deposit contribution on a Nissan GT-R. You’ll need to find £17,758.49 up front and 36 monthly payments of £699. A bold choice.

Jeep Grand Cherokee: £7,250 deposit contribution

The summer’s hottest new car deals

Finally, this offer is similar to that of the Jeep Cherokee, albeit with a less grand deposit contribution. Jeep will contribute £7,250 to the cost of a Grand Cherokee, leaving you to find £9,074 and £399 per month. All offers available at the time of writing and are subject to status.

Dacia Pop-Up closed

Value car brand in Black Friday protest

Dacia Pop-Up closedBlack Friday bargain-hunters shopping at Westfield Stratford will not be able to buy a new Dacia car today – because the value brand has shut up shop for 24 hours, in protest at rivals’ one-day savings.

The marketing gimmick is intended to highlight the firm’s year-round value – and win favour from the two in three people it surveyed who said Black Friday is nothing more than a marketing gimmick.  

Louise O’Sullivan, head of Dacia UK, said: “At Dacia, we offer great value every day and not just on one day a year.

“We hope that closing our Westfield Stratford pop-up on the day synonymous with ‘bargains’ will show UK shoppers that, at Dacia, Black Friday is just another Friday – exceptional value should be every day.”

Dacia cars are still the most affordable new vehicles in the UK, adds the firm. The Sandero range costs from £5,995, while the Duster SUV is Britain’s cheapest mid-size crossover – costing from £9,495.

Dacia Pop-Up closed

So, Dacia is keen to stress, Black Friday is just another day. Luckily, if you are desperate to buy a new car at Westfield Stratford, the new pop-up store reopens early on Saturday morning…

Don’t go there expecting to find any sort of special offer sales deals, though, adds Dacia. Seventy three percent of people said they were suspicions of firms that offer continual sales offers, so it won’t be going down that route.

You could argue this is exactly the sort of gimmick Dacia insists it’s protesting against. Nonetheless, we still like the idea of someone shutting up shop for the day on Black Friday. And there’s still the firm’s website, if you’re super keen…

Ford B-Max Titanium Navigator – £169 pcmBest 0% APR car finance deals

It might not be sexy, but the Ford B-Max does have sliding-door practicality. Titanium Navigator trim sounds fancy, and features 16in alloy wheels, climate control and a Sony navigation system.

You’ll need to find a £5,733 deposit here, and you’ll pay £169 for 36 months. Ford will also offer a £1,200 saving on selected models, while mileage of 9,000 per annum is included.

Nissan Pulsar DiG-T 115 Acenta – £169 pcmBest 0% APR car finance deals

Not everybody likes to stand out from the crowd, and the Pulsar slips somewhat anonymously into the family hatchback market. At least the Acenta has dual-zone climate control and 16in alloy wheels.

Nissan will offer you £500 to get into this Pulsar, but you’ll still need to find a £4,784.13 deposit to secure £169 per month for three years. Mileage is capped at 10,000 per year.

Renault Kadjar Signature Nav TCe 130 – £229 pcmBest 0% APR car finance deals

Taken by the Nissan Qasqhai, but wanting a mid-size crossover with more Gallic flair? If so, the Kadjar could be a strong contender with this 0% deal. Signature Nav includes a panoramic sunroof, Bose sound system, and full LED headlights.

Deposit £5,266 into the bank account of a Renault dealership, and you’ll be paying £229 per month for three years. As before, servicing for two years is included, and a 6,000-mile per annum limit applies.

Honda Jazz 1.3 EX – £189 pcmBest 0% APR car finance deals

Don’t save your pension, your grandchildren will only waste their inheritance once they get their hands on it. Instead, check out this deal on a new Honda Jazz, which includes five years’ complimentary servicing, said to be worth £1,195 alone.

A deposit of £2,761.06 unlocks this deal, and results in 36 monthly payments of £189. Contracted mileage stands at 10,000 per annum, but exceeding this costs just £0.03 a mile.

Toyota Yaris Hybrid Design – £189 pcmBest 0% APR car finance deals

As one of the smallest hybrids around, the Yaris has a certain niche appeal. On top of two years’ free servicing, you’ll also get privacy glass, 16in alloy wheels, cruise control and DAB multimedia system.

To pay £189 per month for 42 months, and cover 8,000 miles per year, you’ll need £3,501 for a deposit contribution. Toyota will also add in an extra £1,000 – how nice.

Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 6.4 Hemi – £839 pcmBest 0% APR car finance deals

Buying a large SUV, powered by a giant 6.4-litre Hemi V8 engine, needn’t result in you paying more than 0% APR. But you’ll need the cash to fuel the Hemi’s thirst for unleaded.

Helpfully, Jeep will contribute £5,500 towards the deposit, along with an extra £2,500 discount for test-driving one before the 31st July. Buyers will then need their own £7,749 deposit, to secure paying £839 per month for three years. A 10,000-mile annual allowance applies.

Mazda 6 150ps Sport Nav Diesel – £259 pcmBest 0% APR car finance deals

Usually associated with business users, the Mazda 6 is available to private buyers with 0% APR deals. Sport Nav trim includes 19in alloy wheels, LED headlights, black leather seats and a Bose sound system.

You’ll need to make a substantial upfront deposit payment of £7,276.38, but Mazda will add an additional £2,500 to the deal. You’ll then spend 36 months paying £259, but a 9,000 miles per annum allowance applies.

Skoda Yeti Outdoor SE L Drive 1.2 TSI – £279 pcmBest 0% APR car finance deals

Time is running out before the Yeti becomes extinct, but there’s still time to bag a car from an era where Skoda still had a sense of fun. With a new Karoq on the way, the run-out Outdoor SE L is loaded with kit, including touchscreen satellite navigation, bi-xenon headlights and parking sensors.

Not only will Skoda contribute £1,500 as a deposit contribution, order by the 17th July and you’ll get £500 worth of free fuel, too. With a customer deposit of just £279, this will result in payments of £279 again for the next 42 months. This price includes an allowance of 10,000 miles per year.

BMW 730d M Sport – £520 pcmBest 0% APR car finance deals

Even high-flying executives can get in on the 0% finance deals and generous deposit allowances currently offered by BMW. The 730d M Sport would cost £70,300 in cash, but becomes less dramatic when financed over 48 months.

Buyers need a £8,587.40 deposit, with BMW topping things up with a further £10,936. Pay £520 per month for the four-year term, and keep the mileage below 10,000 per annum.

Lotus Elise Cup 250 – £0 pcmBest 0% APR car finance deals

The 0% finance deals offered by Lotus are slightly different than regular PCP deals, with no monthly payments, but the need to stump up half the the cost of the car from the outset.

For the Elise Cup 250, that means an initial payment of £23,275, followed by 23 months of paying absolutely nothing at all. Buyers will then, in theory, be in a position to pay the remaining £23,275, having had almost two years of interest-free motoring fun.

January sales: the best new car deals available NOW

New year, new you… or new car, perhaps? If you’ve not overdone the spending this Christmas, January is a great time to buy a new vehicle, with many manufacturers offering extremely tempting deals across their ranges. We’ve picked out some of the best offers.

Ford: interest free finance

Britain’s favourite car manufacturer is offering 0% APR representative finance on a number of its cars, including the new Edge SUV and desirable ST-Line models. That’s through its Ford Options PCP scheme, meaning you can pick up a new Ka+ from £109 per month over two years. That’s following a deposit of £3,670.05 and with an optional final payment of £4,754.

Kia: free servicing on SUVs

With the weather getting colder, a shiny new SUV makes for a tempting purchase this January. Kia is offering free servicing on all its SUVs ordered in January, including the Soul, Niro, Sportage and Sorento. Buyers will get Kia’s Care-3 package, made up of three free services, for no cost – saving up to £349.

Other Kia offers including a free upgrade to the Sportswagon estate if you buy an Optima (saving £800), while Caravan Club members can get up to £1,000 of accessories free of charge with the purchase of a new Sorento SUV. There are also 0% interest PCP deals available on the Cee’d and Picanto.

SEAT: £1,000 off

Fill in a form on SEAT’s website and you’ll be sent a voucher for £1,000 off any new SEAT model – including the new Ateca SUV, as part of the firm’s Beautifully Created Winter Drive event. Be quick, as the offer expires on 23 January, but it can be used on top of other offers. These include free insurance on selected Ibiza models, and a £2,000 deposit contribution on a five-door Leon SE Dynamic.

Vauxhall: up to 22% off selected models

Vauxhall is running a bonus tag event until January 16th, with 22% off the list price of five-door Corsa Energy 1.4 – saving you up to £3,300. Other stand-out deals include 21% (£3,445) off a Corsa Limited Edition, 16% (£2,405) off an Adam Energised and 21% (£4,510) off a Mokka X Active.

Fiat: 0% interest finance

Italian carmaker Fiat often offers tempting deals across its range – with the popular 500 city car currently available with 0% interest finance. The firm will also contribute £1,000 towards your deposit, meaning you could drive away in a 500 Lounge 1.2 for £99 a month following a deposit of £3,998. That’s over two years, with an optional final payment of £5,525 if you want to keep the car. Mileage is limited to 6,000 a year, so be careful if you cover high miles. You could be hit with a fee of 6p per mile if you exceed this figure.

Lotus: Pay half now, half in two years

Lotus: Pay half now, half in two years

British sports car manufacturer Lotus has a very tempting offer on a new Elise Sport: pay half now, and the rest in two years. Very simply, that means you’ll pay a ‘deposit’ of £15,425, while the remaining £15,425 is due after 24 months. You’ll pay nothing in interest.

Volkswagen: £1,400 deposit contribution on Polo and free insurance

The Volkswagen Polo is showing its age alongside supermini rivals, with a new model expected later this year. But that means there are good deals available on the outgoing car – including a £1,400 deposit contribution when bought on PCP, along with a year’s free insurance. There are Ts and Cs, of course: the insurance isn’t available to 17-year-olds, and those under 25 will have to use a telematics black box.

Skoda: 0% finance and £1,500 minimum part exchange

The Skoda brand is synonymous with excellent value, and there’s a wide range of offers available at your local Skoda dealer this January. They include 0% APR PCP deals on models including the Citigo, Octavia and Yeti, along with deposit contributions of up to £2,000. On selected models, Skoda will also give you a minimum of £1,500 for your part-exchange.

Toyota: 0% finance

Toyota: 0% finance

Yes, it’s 0% interest finance overload this January, but with an increasing amount of us buying cars through PCP schemes, that’s no bad thing. Toyota is offering 0% APR on its Aygo, Yaris, Auris and Verso models, meaning you can drive a new Toyota for as little as £99 a month. That’s over four years, for an Aygo X-press, following a deposit of £3,128.50. Increase your monthly payments to £159 and the deposit drops to £668.50.

Honda: 0% finance

As part of its winter event, Honda is offering interest-free finance across its range, including Jazz, Civic and CR-V models. Buy a practical Jazz 1.3 EX for £185 a month over two years, following a deposit of £3,685. After 24 months, hand the car back or pay an optional £8,519 to keep hold of it. Mileage is capped at a not-unreasonable 10,000 miles a year. Hurry, though – the deal expires at the end of January.

Renault: £500 off when you take a test drive

If you hurry, you can save £500 off selected Renault models if you take a test drive and place an order this week. The offer is available on Clio, Captur and Kadjar models until 9 January as long as they’re registered by 31 March 2017. The company is also offering interest-free finance over two years on selected models, meaning you can drive a Clio for £169 a month following a £2,571 deposit.

Nissan: 0% finance

Nissan: 0% finance

Despite being one of the hottest new superminis of 2017, £269 a month for the new Nissan Micra isn’t headline-grabbing. What is more tempting, however, is £119 a month finance with 0% APR interest on a Pulsar DIG-T Acenta. It’s no Ford Focus or Volkswagen Golf, but with a £1,000 Nissan deposit contribution leaving you with £4,175.80 to pay upfront, followed by 36 monthly payments of £119, the Pulsar does represent good value.

Suzuki: free insurance

The new Suzuki Ignis was one of our favourite cars we drove in 2016, and it’s available to order now with a year’s free insurance when you buy it through the manufacturer’s PCP finance scheme. The offer excludes the entry-level SZ3, and is available to 21- to 79-year-olds only.

MG: 0% finance

MG might have given up the pretence of ‘assembling’ cars in the UK, but they’re still worth a look if value is high on your agenda. Both its models – the 3 supermini and GS crossover – are available with 0% interest finance. You can buy an MG 3 3Time for £111.99 a month over 60 months, following a deposit of £1,679.80. After five years, you’ll own the car outright, having paid a total of £8,399.

Top 10 Black Friday car deals

Top 10 Black Friday car deals

Top 10 Black Friday car dealsLove it or hate it, it looks like Black Friday is here to stay. If you’re prepared to brave getting punched by a customer in a supermarket, as folk tussle over a half-price television, there are some great deals to be had. But Black Friday is more than just household appliances and early Christmas presents. We’ve assembled a list of 10 Black Friday car deals.

Renault: up to £2,500 off selected carsTop 10 Black Friday car deals

Renault is feeling extremely generous, offering up to £2,500 off selected vehicles until the 30th November. The maximum discount is available on the Renault Clio, but there’s a catch: the £2,500 offer excludes the all-new Clio, so you’ll have to ‘make do’ with the outgoing version.

Renault’s Black Friday Sales Event is also offering £1,950 off the Captur, £1,850 off the new Megane and a £1,550 discount on Kadjar models. The savings are available on existing stock only and cars must be ordered and registered before the end of November.

Infiniti: special offers and deposit contributionsTop 10 Black Friday car deals

Meanwhile, Infiniti is offering a number of special offers and deposit contributions across the range, but is remaining tight lipped about the details. The posh arm of Nissan is inviting interested parties to register on its website, saying “we will contact you as soon as we know what vehicles are coming and when they are arriving.”

As a ‘sneak preview’, Infiniti will offer a hefty £13,865 deposit contribution on the Q50 2.2d Sport MM Auto. This brings the price down from £38,880 to a German-crunching £24,995. Is this enough to tempt you out of a 3 Series, A4 or C-Class?

Jaguar: £3,600 deposit contribution on a new XFTop 10 Black Friday car deals

Jaguar has contacted people on its database to inform them that up to £3,600 is available towards the deposit on a new XF, with a 4.9% APR representative finance package. The promotion applies to new XF models ordered between 25th and 27th November and registered before 31st December 2016. Contact your local dealer for more details.

Jaguar is also offering an extra £1,000 saving on an XF R-Sport 180PS, fitted with a range of options, including Black Pack, rear camera, privacy glass, heated steering wheel and metallic paint. The aptly named Black Pack includes a host of gloss black cosmetic upgrades, including the radiator grille, tailgate finisher, ‘blades’ and side power vents.

Nissan: Black Tag EventTop 10 Black Friday car deals

The Nissan Black Tag Event kicks off on the 24th November and carries on until the 30th November. In short: an extra £750 deposit contribution is available on selected crossovers at 4.99% APR representative.

Take out a 36-month PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) at 4.99% on a Juke and the Black Tag total deposit contribution could be as much as £2,600. Opt for the X-Trail and it’s £3,250, while the contribution on the ever-popular Qashqai is £2,500. Other offers are available – check with your local Nissan dealer for details.

Ford: Black Friday Upgrade EventTop 10 Black Friday car deals

Ford is doing things differently, with discounts of up to £4,250 available across the range. It’s part of the Black Friday Upgrade Event, in which owners of vehicles aged four years or older are invited to part exchange their car for a new Ford.

You can receive up to £2,500 off a Fiesta, or up to £4,250 off a Focus or Kuga. Certain models and trim levels are excluded – so put aside thoughts of a chunky discount on a Focus RS or Mustang – but the offer does apply to the Fiesta ST and Fiesta ST200. Reasons to be cheerful…

Jeep: free paint on RenegadeTop 10 Black Friday car deals

Jeep is inviting customers to “forget Black Friday”, as it rolls out a free paint offer on the Renegade. As deals go, it’s not the most generous on the list – think Scrooge levels of goodwill – but the Special Pastel Paint is worth £600.

On the plus side, Jeep will offer a £1,500 deposit contribution on a 0% APR representative PCP deal. The free paint offer is available on all Renegades ordered by the 30th November and registered by the 31st December 2016.

Vauxhall: Scrappage offerTop 10 Black Friday car deals

This one is likely to be controversial, with Vauxhall offering a £2,000 scrappage discount when you buy a new car and scrap your old one at participating dealers. To qualify for the discount, the trade-in car must have been registered in your name for at least 90 days and the registration document must be in your name and address.

The offer is for vehicles ordered by the 18th December and registered by 31st December 2016. Our advice would be to check that your car isn’t worth more than £2,000 on the open market. Far too many decent cars were scrapped during the government’s scrappage scheme and we’d hate to see rare and interesting cars taken off the road.

Fiat: Swappage dealTop 10 Black Friday car deals

Fiat is taking a different approach, with a so-called ‘Big Swappage Deal’. Trade in any car and Fiat will offer up to £2,500 towards any Fiat on top of the value of your car. Great if your car is only worth a few hundred quid on the open market.

It’s worth reading the small print, because the maximum discount is only available on the Fiat 500X (pictured). Opt for the Tipo and the swappage allowance is just £500, although the Panda is available with a £1,900 allowance. The promotion runs until the end of 2016.

BMW: complimentary Service InclusiveTop 10 Black Friday car deals

BMW is offering complimentary Service Inclusive packages on ‘immediate delivery’ BMW models purchased before the end of the 28th November 2016.

Service Inclusive lasts for five years or 50,000 miles (whichever occurs first) and covers your vehicle’s servicing requirements for that period. The offer is available at participating dealers only and excludes M and i models.

Subaru Forester in Hunter GreenTop 10 Black Friday car deals

Green is the new black, with Subaru introducing the new special edition Forester in Hunter Green. Available on petrol and diesel models, the Hunter Green special edition comes loaded with £1,500 of additional equipment at no extra cost.

The Forester Hunter Green is packing metallic paint, under guards, wheel arch extensions, stainless steel cargo step panel, brown leather seats, plus matching leather trim throughout the cabin.

Buy a used Nissan Leaf for £175 a month - with a tiny deposit

Buy a used Nissan Leaf for £175 a month – with a tiny deposit

Buy a used Nissan Leaf for £175 a month - with a tiny deposit

More than 15,000 Nissan Leafs have been registered in the UK this year – meaning it holds onto its crown as the country’s most popular electric car.

But the firm says, after four years on sale, the number of used examples on the market are increasing – making it more accessible than previously.

As such, Nissan is launching a £1,000 dealer deposit contribution towards a PCP deal on used examples of the Leaf – meaning you could drive one for £175 a month, following a deposit of just £175.

Available on the 24kWh Acenta model, buyers get a 12 month warranty and free home charge unit, while interest works out at 3.9% APR.

You’ll own the battery outright – although new examples are available with the battery leased from £70 a month – and Nissan will replace any part of the battery causing capacity loss below nine bars (out of 12), within the three-year battery warranty period.

A search on Auto Trader, meanwhile, reveals you can buy a three-year-old Leaf with 61,000 miles on the clock for £5,599 – and the dealer selling it is offering 0% finance.

If you’d prefer a new one, you can buy a new Acenta 24kWh for £249 a month over three years. This follows a deposit of around £2,500, while interest works out at 5.99% APR.
