Best car deals for less than £450 per month
A new car doesn't have to break the bank; thanks to our Target Price discounts, we've got great PCP deals on SUVs, hot hatchbacks, luxurious saloons and classy coupés to tempt you...
Most people these days buy a new car on a Personal Contract Purchase, or PCP, deal. PCP deals are good news for buyers, because with this type of financing you're only paying for a small percentage of the car's value – meaning you could drive away in something you might otherwise struggle to afford.
Here, we've picked our top 10 new cars you can have for £450 per month or less. This list has been compiled using our Target Price research, which reveals the most you should pay for a new car. Each of these deals is based on 15% of the value of the car combined with the manufacturer's finance discount contribution (if there is one). All deals are for three years, with a limit of 10,000 miles per year.

10. Mercedes-AMG A35
Target Price cost per month: £402 Target Price (on the road): £35,684 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 6.2% APR
Think of the A35 as a halfway house between the regular A-Class family hatchback and the fire-breathing A45. That's not to say this AMG creation isn't pretty hot by itself (after all, it has a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine with 302bhp resting under its bonnet), but it also retains more of the comfort and practicality of the standard car. If you're looking for a performance hatchback to use every day, it could be just the ticket.
9. Alfa Romeo Stelvio 2.0 Turbo 280 Milano auto
Target Price cost per month: £439 Target Price (on the road): £40,921 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 4.3% APR and a finance contribution of £4000
Want to inject some Italian flair into your family car? Enter the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. It's a premium SUV that rivals the BMW X3 and Porsche Macan, offering entertaining handling and competitive running costs. Milano trim comes with plenty of goodies, while the 2.0-litre petrol engine you get here can propel you from 0-62mph in just 5.7sec.

Target Price cost per month: £401 Target Price (on the road): £29,652 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 5.5% APR and a finance contribution of £2500
If you're after a relaxed cruiser, the C-Class is one of the best executive cars you can buy, and the 191bhp diesel engine you get here is our recommended choice, for its mix of power and efficiency. While SE trim may be the entry-level choice, it still comes with everything you'll want, including automatic lights and wipers, sat-nav and heated front seats.
7. Audi A5 Coupé 40 TFSI Black Edition
Target Price cost per month: £401 Target Price (on the road): £32,487 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 4.9% APR and a finance contribution of £5000
The A5 is essentially a sleeker version of the popular A4 saloon, and that's a good thing, because the A4 is a former What Car? Car of the Year. True, the A5 is priced higher, but big discounts are available, and it's a comfortable, quiet and classy choice. The turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine you get here is a punchy performer, while Black Edition cars get 20in alloy wheels and some styling enhancements.
6. BMW X1 sDrive18d Sport

The latest version of BMW's Audi Q3 rival is good to drive and has a practical, high-quality interior. This version misses out on four-wheel drive but does get you our recommended 2.0-litre diesel engine and Sport trim, which brings styling enhancements to the already excellent standard equipment list of SE trim.
5. Audi A4 40 TDI quattro Sport S tronic
Target Price cost per month: £408 Target Price (on the road): £32,965 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 4.9% APR and a finance contribution of £4250
As a former What Car? Car of the Year, it's no surprise to see the A4 featuring on this list. It's a great performer in every respect, offering an exceptionally refined range of engines an opulent interior. The 2.0-litre diesel engine here is our pick of the range, and it gets four-wheel drive for added traction on greasy roads. Sport trim offers styling enhancements to give your saloon a more aggressive look.
4. Skoda Superb Estate 2.0 TDI CR 190 Laurin + Klement
Target Price cost per month: £422 Target Price (on the road): £32,224 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 3.9% APR and a finance contribution of £3000
The Skoda Superb is already one of our favourite executive cars, offering comfort and practicality in equal measure. The estate version is even more spacious and offers exceptional value for money, plus this 2.0-litre diesel engine is a strong performer. Opting for Laurin + Klement trim is an extravagance that gets you luxuries including heated leather seats and a digital instrument display.
3. Cupra Ateca 2.0 TSI 300 4Drive DSG [Comfort and Sound Pack]
Target Price cost per month: £432 Target Price (on the road): £36,139 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 4.9% APR and a finance contribution of £1750
The Cupra Ateca may be one of the cheapest options in the growing sports SUV market, but it's also among the best – indeed, it won our inaugural Sports SUV of the Year trophy at last year's What Car? Awards. Power comes from a punchy 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine, so it's pleasantly quick, but it's also just as practical as the regular Seat Ateca.

Target Price cost per month: £419 Target Price (on the road): £35,293 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 3.9% APR and a finance contribution of £3250
The BMW 5 Series Touring is based on our Car of the Year for 2017, the 5 Series saloon. Just like that model, it offers a classy interior, massive storage space and a strong range of engines. There's no need to look beyond the entry-level SE trim, because this gets you everything from leather seats to sat-nav, from climate control to front and rear parking sensors. If you're looking for a luxurious and spacious car in which to cover many miles, look no further.
