The best Black Friday deals
From city cars to SUVs, save thousands with our exclusive Black Friday discounts...
Tiny city cars ought to cost buttons to run, and this is very true of the Peugeot 108. Fuel economy is high and, if you use our New Car Buying service, you can save a lot of money too. Equipment levels are generous, so you won't feel short-changed.
What Car? deal: Save £791 on a 1.0 72 Allure 2-Tronic – Target Price £13,279
The Twingo has just been cut from the Renault line-up, but that doesn't mean that the deals have ended on remaining stock. The novel rear-wheel-drive layout of the Twingo means gives it a very tight turning circle that makes parking a doddle, while our preferred 0.9-litre engine is punchy once its turbocharger has spooled up.
What Car? deal: Save £351 on a 0.9 TCE Iconic [Start Stop] – Target Price £12,209
Skoda Octavia vRS
The Skoda Octavia vRS is closely related to the Volkswagen Golf GTI but comes with a much bigger boot. Other than that, the differences between the two really are fairly subtle, making the Octavia vRS perfect fit for the sort of person that wants to drive something sporty, but is being forced to consider something bigger because their family is growing.
What Car? deal: Save £2510 on a 2.0 TSI 245 vRS Hatchback DSG [Black Pack] – Target Price £26,255
Much like the Twingo from the previous page, the Smart Forfour has rear-wheel drive and a compact turning circle because the front wheels only have to deal with the steering. The Forfour is also really spacious for a small four-seater, making it a great choice for families with young children.
What Car? deal: Save £1687 on a 1.0 Urban Shadow Edition auto – Target Price £12,018
Subaru WRX STi
Few cars are quite so in-your-face as the Subaru WRX STI, thanks to its bulbous bonnet bulge and huge rear wing. We're unlikely to see such outrageous styling again when production of this car ends, but for now, you can still save quite a bit on this brutish blue Subaru.
What Car? deal: Save £963 on a 2.5 WRX STi Type UK – Target Price £31,147
Unlike the Peugeot 108 and Citroen C1 (cars with which the Aygo shares mechanical components) this Toyota gets a longer five-year manufacturer's warranty instead of just three like the others. What's more, you get a good driving position with great visibility, making parking easy.
What Car? deal: Save £760 on a 1.0 VVT-i X-Clusiv x-shift – Target Price £13,965
The Volkswagen T-Cross is a great choice: it's not so large on the outside to make it difficult to manoeuvre in town, but big enough inside families with young children. It also comes with an impressive level of standard safety technology including automatic emergency braking and lane-keep assistance.
What Car? deal: Save £798 on a 1.6 TDI R Line auto – Target Price £26,657
While the Volkswagen Up might be our current used city car champion, you don't have to go for a second-hand one to save a bundle on it. The Up has always had a touch more class to it than its rivals, and the ride is far more pliant than most small cars, making it ideal for longer trips.
What Car? deal: Save £419 on a 1.0 Take Up [Start Stop] – Target Price £9721
The XC90 will be a big hit with anyone that needs to carry seven people, and you won't loose that third-row if you want to carry a spare tyre, or, if you fancy going for the plug-in hybrid T8 model. This version should provide you with 25-30 miles of electric-only driving range.
What Car? deal: Save £6475 on a 2.0 T6  Inscription Pro AWD auto – Target Price £58,635
Safe, stylish and with a very comfortable interior, the Volvo S90 is a fine large luxury cruiser with the potential for even bigger savings. It's also practical, with plenty of rear legroom, and a big boot that can be had with split-folding rear seats.
What Car? deal: Save £4411 on a 2.0 T4 R Design Plus Geartronic – Target Price £36,874
