Best lease deals of the week: warm hatches

2. Mini 1.5 Cooper Sport

£1287 deposit, £215 per month, 48 months, 8000 miles per year

The Cooper’s 134bhp engine pulls strongly from low revs and also at higher speeds. Sport trim brings 17in alloys, sports seats and styling upgrades, making it good value and the sweet spot in the model range.

3. Volkswagen Up GTI 1.0 115 5dr

£1264 deposit, £211 per month, 48 months, 8000 miles per year

Despite its lowly power output, the Up gets away like a hare at the dog track. Away from the straights, it clings on in corners and changes direction sweetly. The price is a ride that can be uncomfortably firm around town.

4. Seat Ibiza 1.0 TSI 115 FR Sport 5dr

£1133 deposit, £189 per month, 36 months, 8000 miles per year

Like the Up GTI, the Ibiza 1.0 TSI FR Sport also makes 113bhp. Again, it’s an eager affair, but the car’s bigger size has allowed the engineers to dial in a little extra ride comfort, despite the model’s 18in alloys.
