What is the best Ford to lease?
Leasing can often be better than buying a car. It’s cheaper, and so there are a wider choice of quality vehicles available to the average motorist, and it offers the unique ability for motorists to simply change their car after 3 years for a new one. Although you’ll never own the car you lease, you pay for the privilege to use it.
Therefore, it makes sense to lease a nice car. Ford make some of the best cars on sale in Britain and they’re a popular brand among families and younger drivers. So what’s the best ford to lease?
For families: Ford C-Max
The Ford C-max has a fantastic Euro NCAP safety rating, an economical range of engines, the best looks of any family MPV on the market and it’s also surprisingly good fun to drive. Just like the Fiesta is a well rounded super mini and the Focus is a well-rounded hatchback, the C-Max is a well-rounded MPV offering plenty for the average motorist to get excited about.
Our pick of the range is the 1.6 TDCi Zetec. This offers good equipment and 62.8 mpg on a combined cycle.
For younger drivers: Ford Fiesta
The Ford Fiesta is the most common super mini on UK roads, and that’s for one simple reason; it’s such good fun to drive! Whether you go for a lowly 1.25-litre engine or the fire breathing 1.6-litre turbocharged ST, the Fiesta offers the perfect combination of handling, refinement, comfort and practicability.
For first-time or younger drivers, we say go for the Fiesta 1.25 Style. This can be bought from leasing companies such as Lease Cars Direct.
For something a little different: Ford Kuga
You don’t see many Ford 4×4’s, do you? That’s because Ford doesn’t really position itself as an all-terrain brand. BUT, the Kuga is deceptively good off road, especially if you get the AWD version, and the Kuga has plenty of space on the inside to lug passengers around in comfort. The Kuga looks great and although it doesn’t set the world alight in the same way the futuristic Range Rover Evoque does, the Kuga is a much cheaper vehicle.
All-New Ford Kuga
We say go for the off-road capable and quick 2.0 TDCi AWD Titanium. It’ll go from 0 – 62 mph in 9.9 seconds, on to a top speed of 123 mph and return 47.9 mpg.
For a good all rounder: Ford Focus
There is little to dislike about the Ford Focus, a car that is constantly luring customers away from the claws of the Volkswagen Golf salesman. It offers the best handling of any car in its class and the standard equipment even on the lowest trim models in generous. Our pick of the range is the Ford Focus Hatchback 1.6 TDCi 115 Zetec 5dr. This will return 67 mpg and it has plenty of kit to keep you entertained.
