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 £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.

If you find one you like, simply click on the relevant link to find out more. Alternatively, call us on 03302 216207 and we will be happy to help you.

This is, you guessed it, a more spacious version of the Peugeot 308 family car. With a high quality interior and plenty of space for people and luggage, it's a commendable choice in this class. It's also exceptionally frugal.

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 Dynamique S Nav trim which, as its name suggests, comes with sat-nav.
