1. Honda Civic 1.0 VTEC Turbo 126 SE 5dr – 4/5 stars (lease deals from £186pcm*)

*Prices accurate at the time of writing

Hot lease deals Civic

About the spec

The current tenth generation Civic has caused quite the divide among car enthusiasts and drivers alike, mainly due to its very different styling. By very different we don’t just mean from the crop of other family-sized hatchbacks currently available, but in general from anything ever. Such is its uniqueness we think that it’s like marmite – you’ll either love it or you’ll hate it.

One thing you can’t hate is the level of standard equipment that comes with this SE spec, which is one step up from the entry-level S version.

A host of safety equipment is carried over from the S, including automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition and lane-departure warning. All of which make this car a lot more refined than its sporty, aggressive looks initially suggest.

What do you get over the S? I hear you ask. A few additional luxuries, to be exact. This includes DAB radio, Bluetooth phone connectivity, air con and steering wheel mounted controls as standard. What’s more is you also get front and rear parking sensors to help you easily park it on the school run or while you’re doing the shopping.

About the engine

Engine options are nice and straightforward for the SE trim, with just one petrol 126bhp 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol unit available. It’s got plenty of power that we think will be enough for most people, with an official 0-62mph time of 10.5 seconds and it feels brisk whether you’re driving about town or on the motorway.

Should you want a bit more power, the Sport versions of the Civic come with a bigger, punchier 1.5-litre engine that has 54bhp more and slashes the sprint time to 8.2 seconds. Or, if you’re serious about getting a hot hatch, then check out the Type R. It’s pure performance that’s backed by a 2.0-litre 315bhp turbocharged petrol engine that sends you hurtling to 62mph in just 5.7 seconds.

2. Renault Captur 0.9 TCE 100 Iconic 5dr – 5/5 stars (lease deals from £173pcm*)

*Prices accurate at the time of writing

Hot lease deals Captur

About the spec

The Renault Captur is the brand’s diddiest SUV, modelled on the popular Clio hatch which gives it style and a sporty profile.

Although the Captur is essentially a raised Clio, this doesn’t make it uncomfortable when you’re rolling over uneven UK roads. Quite the contrary, you’ll find it smooths over potholes and cracks, with little body lean when you’re cornering too.

Iconic versions of the car are one up from the standard Play spec and are a good entry point if you’re interested in this energetic family car.

As standard, you get a 7″ touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring, smart two-tone paint with modern 17″ alloy wheels and rear parking sensors for more convenient parking.

About the engine

A 0.9-litre petrol engine might sound a little bit underwhelming in a car that’s designed to carry a family and its stuff.

Badged ‘TCE 100’ the engine has 100bhp, a top speed of 107mph and a 0-62mph time of 13.3 seconds that feels punchier than it sounds, mostly because it has a turbocharger that allows for better delivery of power.

Most importantly this Captur is savvy when it comes to running costs. With low emissions (116g/km of CO2) and good fuel economy (47.1mpg) you’ll make plenty of savings at the pumps and on insurance if you choose this motor.

3. Nissan Leaf 110kW Acenta 40kWh 5dr Auto [6.6kW charger] – 5/5 stars (lease deals from £163.11pcm*)

Hot lease deals Leaf

*Prices accurate at the time of writing

About the spec

Acenta variations of the Leaf are the starting point in the range, but they aren’t unequipped by any stretch of the imagination.

Pick a Nissan Leaf Acenta and you’ll get the following:

  • e-Pedal: allows you to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop using just the accelerator pedal (lifting off the accelerator makes it mimic braking, allowing you to slow down and even come to a complete stop).
  • Nissan Safety Shield: includes lane departure warning, intelligent emergency braking with pedestrian recognition, intelligent lane intervention, intelligent cruise control, rear cross traffic alert and high beam assist.
  • 8″ touchscreen infotainment system with sat nav, eco-routing function for saving battery and rear view camera.
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.

About the engine

All but the range-topping e+ Tekna versions of the Leaf get a 150bhp electric motor that’s fed by a 40kWh battery pack. Just like most EVs, it accelerates quickly to get to motorway speeds, taking just 7.9 seconds to reach 60mph from standstill.

According to expert tests from Zap-Map, the real range of the standard Leaf is around 160 miles. This will be plenty for most people doing local commutes day-to-day, with the occasional long commute thrown in there. Because every Leaf gets rapid charging at a rate of 50kW, you’ll be able to get 80% charge in 40 minutes too.

How does it feel to drive when you’re out on the road? Much more refined than the Renault Zoe and BMW i3 rivals. Long cruises on the motorway and A-roads are very relaxing when you’re behind the wheel or in one of the passenger spaces. Take it in town and there’s a little bit of unrest on uneven surfaces, but it makes light work of potholes and won’t throw you about too much.
