Best cars for less than £350 per month
A new car doesn't have to break the bank, with these stylish SUVs, practical family cars and spacious people carriers all available for less than £350 per month...
These days, the majority of new car purchases are made on personal contract purchase (PCP) deals. This type of financing is great, because it allows you to buy a new car that you might otherwise have been unable to afford.
A monthly budget of £350 for a new car is achievable for many of us, and the good news is that, you can end up driving some of the best new cars on the market for that sort of money.
This list of our top buys has been compiled using our Target Price research, which shows you the most you should pay for a new car. Each of these deals is based on a deposit of 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. Mazda 6 2.2d SE-L Nav+ auto
Target Price cost per month: £316 Target Price: £22,813 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 4.1% APR and a finance contribution of £5250
Mazda's executive saloon is well rounded, offering a strong but quiet range of diesel engines, an excellent infotainment system and lots of equipment. It's not as spacious as some rivals, but is an appealing option in this class if you don't fancy a German badge on the bonnet.
9. Skoda Kodiaq 2.0 TDI SE DSG [7 seat]
Target Price cost per month: £332 Target Price: £26,009 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 5.9% APR and a finance contribution of £2000
The Kodiaq is proof that getting a large SUV with space for up to seven people need not cost the Earth. This is Skoda's largest SUV, and it's supremely practical inside while also offering excellent value for money. The 2.0-litre diesel engine you get here has 148bhp on tap, and that's enough to haul you around with little drama, even if all seven seats are filled.
8. Nissan Qashqai 1.3 DIG-T N-Connecta [Executive Pack]
Target Price cost per month: £312 Target Price: £22,131 The deal: 3 years PCP finance with 4.9% APR and a finance contribution of £2750
Arguably, the Qashqai is the car that started the family SUV revolution, and even though the Range Rover Evoque, Peugeot 3008 and Volvo XC40 are better all-rounders today, the Qashqai is still very recommendable. This 1.3-litre petrol engine is gutsy and economical, making it the best bet for most buyers, and N-Connecta trim gets you part-leather trim, privacy glass and larger alloy wheels than Acenta Premium versions.
