Mazda appear to have taken on some comments about the modest appearance of their CX-5 and this second-generation model looks sharper, and still has the innovative infotainment in the interior. This manual petrol drive offers good economy at 44.1 mpg and good emissions at 141 g/km, but the high-spec interior is the big talking point and the big improvement since the 2012 launch. The CX-5 has accounted for a quarter of Mazda’s sales with 1.5million sold worldwide, and in the mid-size SUV crossover market you can see why this has surged ahead in what is a very crowded segment.
Combining fashion sense and good economics has always been a challenge in this crossover segment, but compromise is the name of the game, and the Niro pulls it off impressively. The automatic elec/petrol hybrid naturally offers good emissions at 86 g/km and decent efficiency at 76.3mpg, but your attention is also drawn by the spacious comfort and a well-equipped interior. The upgraded battery technology and a new dual-clutch auto transmission are attractive features of what could be a very accommodating introduction to the electric car market.
This 10th generation Civic might be considered an old stager, but it still retains the right kind of character for its age and offers a compelling combination of impressive space and cost-effective motoring. At 48.7mpg and 110 g/km this manual petrol motor also maintains its great build quality and driving experience to really enhance its appeal. The compact saloon market has not been a traditional big seller in the UK, but the Honda Civic ticks so many boxes that it is definitely bucking that trend.
The Audi A3 Sportback is a desirable option for first time car buyers, families and executives. This compact yet sporty car offers a stylish interior and high-quality German design and build. The range starts with the 115PS 1.0 litre TFSI which will satisfy most buyers looking for a compact hatchback at an affordable price. With slick and classy looks, sharp lines and the stunning Singleframe grille, the Audi A3 is a great option to lease right now.
Is the A-Class one of the best cars to lease? This fourth-generation model continues the younger and sportier theme of its predecessor but still maintains the sleek and sophisticated design that you expect from Mercedes. Compared to its rivals, the Audi A3 and BMW 1, there is a self-assurance to the A-Class and with plenty of spec options, it is hard to take its placing in the ‘compact premium family hatchback’ segment seriously. It offers a lot more than that, with sharper looks and an improved interior space, the petrol manual model offers good economy at 51.4mpg and excellent emissions at 127g/km. With good safety and media connectivity features also, the A-Class is going to rule the market for some time to come.
