New car discounts of more than 16% are currently available, analysis of our Target Price mystery shopper data shows.

The Volkswagen Arteon 1.5 TSI R Line Fastback tops the savings available, with a cash discount of 16.7% (or £6332), while the popular Nissan Qashqai 1.3 DiG-T Acenta Premium family SUV can be had with a 14.3% saving (£4120).

Our researchers also found that certain models purchased via Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) finance can end up costing buyers less compared with if they bought outright with cash, thanks to generous deposit contributions from manufacturers. 

For example, buyers opting for a Fiat 500 1.0 Mild Hybrid can save 7.3% on the list price when buying via PCP finance, thanks to a £2900 deposit contribution from dealers. And the Ford Ecosport 1.0 Ecoboost 125 Titanium is available with a 4.8% saving over the list price, thanks to a £1250 deposit contribution. 

For those who would rather buy their car outright, though, here's our rundown of the best cash deals available.
