Best new car offers September 2021

Here are some great new car deals to get the 71 plate on

New car supply continues to be hit by the Covid-19 pandemic as a result of parts shortages – namely semiconductors that are used in a variety of different purposes, from steering systems to digital dial displays. 

It led to significant new car delays for some manufacturers, while also meant that the room for negotiation and discounts have been squeezed. 

Despite that, there are still some great new car deals available if you know where to look. Here we’ve rounded up five of the best currently available. 

BMW i3

While BMW is currently launching a range of new EVs, you shouldn’t overlook the model that’s already on sale – the i3. Though it’s been on sale for a number of years now, it’s funky looks and brilliant interior made from a range of recycled materials means it most certainly doesn’t feel outdated. It’s also fun to drive, while an electric range of 180 miles should prove plenty for most. 

And though the i3 might be seen as one of the more premium small EVs on the market, it’s actually quite affordable with current offers, and is available from under £350 per month with a £4,549 deposit. That’s helped by a BMW contribution of £1,676.95, as well as an attractive 2.9 per cent APR rate

Ford Fiesta

If you’re looking for a fun, affordable and well-equipped supermini, the Ford Fiesta remains a tough option to beat. It continues to be one of the UK’s best-selling cars, while it’s also good to drive and roomier inside than you might expect. 

It’s also an absolute bargain with Ford’s current offers, as you’re able to get behind the wheel from just £165 per month on a three-year contract – helped by zero per cent APR and a generous £1,000 deposit contribution on top of that. This also gets you a well-equipped Trend model, which gets an eight-inch touchscreen and cruise control as standard, along with the fantastic 1.0-litre turbocharged EcoBoost petrol engine.

Peugeot 3008 Hybrid

Peugeot’s second-generation 3008 has proven an enormous success for this French brand since its introduction in 2016, and it’s recently benefited from a mid-life update, introducing more style, a larger touchscreen system and new safety technology. All of this builds on what is already a very eye-catching and practical family SUV. 

You can also choose it as a plug-in hybrid, which offers more than 35 miles of electric range and impressively low running costs if you’re able to charge it regularly. Currently it’s also available for just £349 per month – just £10 more than a less powerful diesel in the same spec, thanks to a £3,675 deposit contribution in addition to a £1,000 customer saving, which makes this hybrid SUV far more affordable than you might expect. 

Model: Peugeot 3008 Allure Hybrid 225 E-EAT8 

Monthly payments: 47 x £349

Vauxhall Astra

With Vauxhall set to launch a new Astra early in 2022, now could be a great time to grab a bargain on the soon-to-be-replaced model. And even as production comes to a close, this Astra still looks the part, is good to drive and practical enough for family duties as well. It also continues to be one of the most affordable models in its segment, and ideal if you’re looking to upgrade from a supermini but with minimal extra expense. 

Current offers are very generous too, with Vauxhall offering a £3,000 deposit contribution and additional £1,000 Trade-Up saving when you trade in any vehicle owned for 90 days – in addition to the usual part-exchange valuation of it. This brings the monthly figure down to just £225. 

Model: Vauxhall Astra SRi Nav 1.2 110PS

Monthly payments: 47 x £225

Customer deposit: £3,247.60

Deposit contribution: £4,000 (including £1,000 Trade-Up Saving

MG5

Think all electric cars have to be expensive to buy? Well, MG is out there to show that that doesn’t have to be the case, with its MG5 estate car being available from just £329 per month, and with a tiny £329 customer deposit meaning you won’t have to put up some huge upfront figure to get behind the wheel. 

This applies to the brand’s latest Long Range version, which now packs a large 61kWh battery that allows for a genuinely impressive electric range of 250 miles – the longest of any new EV available for under £30,000. You also get a practical interior for all the family, which can’t be said for many other smaller hatchbacks costing a similar price.
