Best cars for less than Β£250 per month

These days, the vast majority of new car purchases are made using a finance deal, and the most popular way of financing a car is through a Personal Contract Purchase, or PCP. These deals are easy to find, and because you're only financing part of the car's value, you can drive away something that would otherwise be out of your budget.

Indeed, for Β£250 per month, you can get city cars, estate cars and SUVs large and small.

Here we count down the top 10 deals from our Target Price research, which reveals the most you should pay for a new car. Each deal is based on 15% of the value of the car, combined with the manufacturer's finance discount allowance. And all are for three years, with a 30,000-mileage limit.

10. Suzuki Ignis 1.2 Dualjet SHVS Allgrip SZ5

Target Price cost per month: Β£210 Target Price (on the road): Β£11,096 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 4.6% APR and Β£500 finance deposit allowance

SUVs don't come much smaller than the tiny Suzuki Ignis, but don't be fooled by its size – this is a seriously capable SUV on or off-road. This version also offers low running costs thanks to its frugal 1.2-litre engine that's helped along by a small electric motor in certain situations. SZ5 trim gets you plenty of kit, too.

9. Renault Kadjar 1.5 dCi Expression+

Target Price cost per month: Β£248 Target Price (on the road): Β£17,792 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 4.9% APR and Β£3250 finance deposit allowance

The Kadjar is Renault's take on the hugle popular small SUV market, rivalling big-selling cars such as the Nissan Qashqai and Seat Ateca. It's spacious inside and cheap to run, and the 1.5-litre diesel engine you get with this deal is our pick of the range.

Target Price cost per month: Β£247 Target Price (on the road): Β£17,309 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 6% APR and Β£900 finance deposit allowance

If you want a small car with big-car luxuries, the Audi A1 is an excellent starting point. This Sport version gets you a part-leather interior, Bluetooth, sports seats with lumbar support and stiffer suspension. Plus, it's teamed with our recommended 1.4-litre petrol engine.
