All the cars you can get on 0% APR finance

Hatchbacks, SUVs and even luxury cars are available on 0% finance, meaning you can spread the cost without being charged interest.....

3 Dec 2019 19:11

Walk into a showroom with a suitcase full of cash 10 years ago and you would have had sales staff fighting each other off to help you spend it on a shiny new car.

0% APR compilation image

However, that’s no longer the case; even if you do have the money to buy a new car outright, in many cases you’re now better off entering a finance agreement instead.

One reason for this is that dealers no longer make big margins on sales, with finance one area in which they can claw back some dividends. Indeed, some are so keen to push these schemes that they're offering 0% APR finance, meaning you can spread the cost over multiple instalments without getting charged interest.

Sound appealing? Well, here we've compiled a list of the cars available on 0% APR finance which currently have a four-star What Car? rating or higher.

Alfa Romeo Giulia

Alfa Romeo Giulia 2.0 TB 280hp Veloce

A welcomed step away from the usual German entourage, the Giulia sports a line of strong powertrains encased in gorgeous Italian penmanship.

Inside, the good fortunes continue. Often the undoing of Alfas throughout history, the interior of the Giulia is surprisingly well made and makes for a comfortable place to fire down any given motorway. The 0% enticement only sweetens the deal.

Audi A8

Audi A8 Saloon Sport 50 TDI quattro

Variant: Sport 50 TDI quattro

The A8’s blend of performance, comfort and refinement makes it the most relaxing luxury limo you can buy.

It's the car that finally knocked the Mercedes S-Class off its perch, yet due to slow sales, there are some fantastic offers.

Ford Fiesta

Ford Fiesta ST-Line 1.0 3 Door EcoBoost 100PS

Variant: ST-Line 1.0 EcoBoost

The Fiesta has long been the benchmark small car for driving fun and this latest version continues that tradition.

However, it also offers a smarter interior than its predecessor and swaps that car's fiddly, button-heavy infotainment system for a more user-friendly touchscreen. True, some rivals are more practical, but the Fiesta is still a fine choice.

Ford Focus

Ford Focus ST-Line 1.0 EcoBoost 125PS

Variant: ST-Line 1.0 EcoBoost

Like its smaller sibling, the Focus mixes fun driving dynamics with plenty of safety kit and low running costs.

Ford Galaxy

Ford Galaxy Titanium 2.0 EcoBlue 150PS

Variant: Titanium 2.0 EcoBlue

Chances are you've been a passenger in one of these MPVs on the way to or from an airport - and there's a very good reason for that. Huge inside, relatively cheap to run and almost enjoyable to drive, the Galaxy makes for a near-perfect people hauler, and that's why cabbies love them.

 

Ford Galaxy - interior

The elevated seating position, oodles of steering wheel adjustment and fairly logical dashboard layout makes the inside of the Galaxy a pleasant place to be. However it's beaten on overall quality by the Volkswagen brothers Sharan and Touran.

Ford Mondeo

Ford Mondeo Titanium Edition HYBRID

Variant: Titanium Edition HYBRID

Whereas the 'Mondeo Man' of the 1990s was the epitome of middle-class conformity, today the lack of low-riding, non-premium saloons on the road means the man or woman that drives this will instead stand out from the crowd.

Ford Mondeo - interior

While the Mondeo holds its own against key rivals such as the Skoda Superb and Volkswagen Passat, it can't touch anything Mercedes or BMW have to offer - one reason for this is the sub-par interior quality.

Ford S-Max

Ford S-MAX ST-Line 2.0 EcoBlue 190PS

Variant: ST-Line 2.0 EcoBlue 

The second people hauler on this list, the S-Max is Ford's attempt to inject a whiff or sportiness into the MPV segment - and it succeeds, mostly.

Ford S-Max - interior

Ford S-MAX ST-Line 2.0 EcoBlue 190PS - interior

Sporting firmer suspension that most in the class, the S-Max highlights road imperfections more than rivals, however not to such an extent that we would call it uncomfortable. With buckets of room and enticing styling, it's a shame the S-Max is plagued with a substandard interior.

Ford Ranger

Ford Ranger Wildtrak 3.2 TDCi 200PS

Variant: Wildtrak 3.2 TDCi

With a recent influx of pick-ups arriving in the UK, Ford have jumped towards forefront of the market thanks to the Ranger. Available in a multitude of trims with the ability to cut some serious shapes on the muddy stuff yet also crush any given motorway, we like this beast.

Ford Ranger - interior

Here Ford has attempted to retain the rugged interior expected of such a vehicle, combined with the qualities buyers expect of SUV interiors. Its mostly succeeded, however the interior found in the Volkswagen Amarok is a classier, more comfortable place to be.

Honda Jazz

Honda Jazz EX 1.3 i-VTEC Manual

Variant: EX 1.3 i-VTEC

The Jazz has long bridged the gap between small cars and mini-MPVs, and the latest version continues that tradition.

It offers class-leading space and practicality, and it might even outlast you with its outstanding reliability.

Nissan Qashqai

Nissan QASHQAI 1.5 DCI 115 ACENTA PREMIUM 5DR

Variant: 1.5 DCI 115 Acenta Premium

The Qashqai is the car that started the trend for jacked-up family hatchbacks, and it remains one of the best following a recent update.

Renault Clio

Renault Clio R.S. Line TCe 100

Variant: R.S. Line TCe 100

It might not be the most fun or comfortable small car, but the Clio continues to be a great all-rounder.

Renault Clio - interior

Renault Clio R.S. Line TCe 100 - interior

Stick with the mid-range Iconic with the TCe 100 engine and you’ll have yourself a very well-priced and practical family car, although interior quality and the infotainment system can’t compete with its German Volkswagen Polo rival.

Renault Zoe

Renault Zoe Play R110 Z.E. 50

Variant: R110 Z.E. 50

The Renault Zoe looks temptingly priced against the army of small electric cars due to hit the market soon, such as the Honda E and Mini Electric.

Renault Megane RS

Renault Megane R.S. 1.8 280 5dr

Variant: R.S. 1.8 280 5dr

The Mégane RS isn’t the fastest hot hatch in the world, but it’s great fun to drive and cheaper than most rivals.

Renault Megane RS - interior

Renault: MEGANE R.S. 1.8 280 5dr - interior

Standard equipment is pretty generous and includes climate control, LED headlights, rear parking sensors and keyless entry. But we’d recommend adding metallic paint and, more importantly, the Safety Pack Premium, which adds automatic emergency braking.

Seat Tarraco

Seat Tarraco XCELLENCE 1.5 TSI EVO 150PS

Variant: XCELLENCE 1.5 TSI EVO

There is a lot to like about the Seat Tarraco. It’s enjoyable to drive, generously equipped and one of the safest cars in its class, but it isn’t as versatile as the very best large SUVs.

Seat Tarraco - interior

Seat Tarraco XCELLENCE 1.5 TSI EVO 150PS - interior

Entry-level SE models are reasonably equipped, with 17in alloy wheels, three-zone climate control, automatic wipers and power-folding door mirrors. We reckon it’s worth upgrading to SE Technology trim, though, not only for its sat-nav but also because it brings upmarket features such as 18in wheels and tinted rear windows.

Skoda Fabia

Skoda Fabia S 1.0 MPI 60PS

Variant: S 1.0 MPI

The Skoda Fabia is a fine small car and incredible value for money if you choose carefully. We reckon the 1.0 TSI 95 in SE trim makes the most sense.

Skoda Fabia - interior

Skoda Fabia S 1.0 MPI 60PS - interior

Entry-level S trim misses out on some kit most people would consider the norm these days, such as air conditioning and alloy wheels. A glance at the equipment list confirms why SE makes more sense. Alloy wheels, air-con and a leather steering wheel and gearlever all feature. It actually makes the range-topping SE L seem a bit unnecessary.

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Design 2.5 AWD Automatic

Variant: Design 2.5 AWD Automatic

The RAV4 is fairly ordinary to drive, but its strong points lie elsewhere. Its real selling points are costs; yes, it’s a little pricier to buy than some other large SUVs, but you should make that back down the line through its strong resale values. If you’re a company car driver, the RAV4 should work out to be one of the cheapest large SUVs on company car tax, too.

It might be pricier to buy than some rivals, but equipment levels are high. All models come with adaptive cruise control, dual-zone climate control, alloy wheels, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, power-folding door mirrors and rear privacy glass.

Toyota Corolla Touring

Toyota Corolla Touring Sport Hybrid Design 1.8 VVT-i

Variant: Touring Sport Hybrid Design 1.8 VVT-i

In hybrid form, the Toyota Corolla Touring Sports is a unique and rather convincing proposition in the estate car category, offering exceptionally low running costs, great residual values and plenty of standard equipment.

Yes, the boot isn’t quite as large as those found in conventional rivals, but it’s not far off. In short, for buyers looking for an alternative to diesel, the Touring Sports is well worth a look.

Even entry-level Icon trim comes with dusk-sensing headlights, dual-zone climate control, adaptive cruise control, heated front seats and 16in alloy wheels. We reckon Icon Tech is the one to go for, though; it keeps the price relatively low while bringing a good haul of extra upgrades.

Toyota Corolla Hybrid

Toyota Corolla Hybrid Design 1.8 VVT-i

Variant: Design 1.8 VVT-i

The Corolla is the best hybrid car you can buy right now. Even the lesser, 1.8-litre version feels lively enough, plus it's very comfortable, benefits from Toyota's exceptional reliability record, and offers super-frugal fuel consumption.

Toyota Corolla Hybrid - interior

Its interior is solidly made, withe plenty of soft-touch materials that lend it a competitively plush feel. However some details aren’t quite as classy its rivals, though. The leather on the steering wheel and gearlever, for example, feels a little plasticky compared with the fine-grain stuff you’ll find in a Volkswagen Golf.
