Best cars for less than £250 per month
By buying your next car using a PCP finance deal, you could end up driving something that you wouldn't otherwise be able to afford. These are our top 10 cars available for less than £250 per mont...
These days, most 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.
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. All are for three years, with a limit of 10,000 miles per year.

You'll either love or hate the Captur's chunky styling, but there's no arguing over its practical interior or the sheer amount of kit you get for your money. Here, you get our recommended 0.9-litre petrol engine, which is great if you'll mainly be driving in the city, together with high-end GT Line trim, which comes with everything you should need.
