7. Skoda Octavia Estate 1.4 TSI SE L
Target price cost per month: £273 Target price (on the road): £20,381 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 2.9% APR and a finance contribution of £2000
Few cars can match the Skoda Octavia Estate for outright space – but the Octavia's party trick is mixing that space with a generously equipped interior, great value for money and a range of economical engines. This turbocharged 1.4-litre petrol engine is our recommended choice.
6. Vauxhall Astra 1.6 CDTi Ecoflex SRi
Target price cost per month: £256 Target price (on the road, cash): £17,052 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 4.2% APR and a finance contribution of £2000
Chances are that if you're looking at a Vauxhall Astra, you're also looking at its key rivals, the Ford Focus and Renault Mégane. Well, the Astra is a true all-rounder, offering a decent mix of equipment, low running costs and driving fun. Go for this 1.6-litre diesel option if you regularly do motorway miles. If you prefer petrol, the 1.4-litre turbocharged option is our choice.
5. Audi TT 1.8 TFSI Sport
Target price cost per month: £252 Target price (on the road, cash): £23,972 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 6.1% APR and a finance contribution of £4000
The TT is the first car on this list to get our full five-star rating, and it's easy to see why. With great driving dynamics, an upmarket interior and strong residual values, it's little surprise that we named it as our Coupé of the Year at the most recent What Car? Awards. The fact that you also get a financial contribution of £4000 here only sweetens the deal.
