Leasing a Volkswagen for under £250 per month

The rise in popularity of smaller cars continues to grow and the Volkswagen Up Hatchback Take Up is up there with the very best of them. Since first hitting the roads back in 2012, it became the benchmark for similar cars in its class and its performance levels remain just as strong today.

There is a style to the Volkswagen Up that sets it apart from the competition. It also manages to feel like a larger car than it actually is, as its four seats are surprisingly spacious, which is good news for small families. In addition, the 0.999 litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine is now the largest that has appeared in any of the models since first joining the market.

CO2 emissions are at a very low 101g/km, with maximum speed levels set at 101mph, making it ideal for city use, and the 35 litre tank gets through just over 64 miles to the gallon. There are several trim options available, and each one comes complete with luggage compartment lighting, a rev counter, 2 high-quality speakers and speed sensitive power steering.

Safety is never in doubt as the Volkswagen Up comes with a 5-star Euro NCAP crash-testing rating, along with seatbelt warning lamps, 2 remote folding keys, a

‘Lights On’ buzzer and a tyre pressure warning system. If you want to push the boat out a little more, extra options include the city emergency braking pack, mats, a spare wheel and specialist paintwork.

Leasing a Volkswagen for under £350 per month

The Volkswagen Arteon Fastback TDI R Line is a stylish saloon that brings with it a handsome design and an interior filled with a fantastic range of tech. Retailing at over £35,000, this exceptional car is available to Leasing Options’ customers for under £350 each month, giving you access to a family friendly vehicle that is both affordable and a pleasure to drive.

This Arteon is one of Volkswagen’s more upmarket cars, combining style and practicality, which is why it remains such a popular choice. The 1.968, four-cylinder diesel engine offers just the right level of power for most drivers, with a 6-speed manual transmission gearbox and a top speed of 138mph to match.

Large 19” alloys add to the eye-catching design and the 66 litre fuel tank provides plenty of room, with just over 67 miles to the gallon being used. CO2 emission rates are also low, coming in at only 112g/km.

Standard equipment on every trim includes a remote tailgate release, an 8” touchscreen, a misfuel prevention device to help avoid costly damage, plus a traffic message channel to keep you updated on any potential jams.

To add even more features to an already stacked car, you can also include parking sensors, a heated windscreen, dynamic chassis control to firm or soften the ride, plus a voice control system. Safety options haven’t been overlooked either, with pedestrian detection, anti-theft wheel bolts, an active bonnet and WOK head restraints provided as part of the package

Leasing a Volkswagen for under £400 per month

Although it is the smallest SUV in their range, the Volkswagen T-Cross Estate Special Edition TSI 115 still has plenty offer. It’s a smartly designed, spacious and well-equipped car that is available to purchase outright for just under £23,000.

If that seems a little out of your budget and price range, the good news is you can hire the T-Cross with Leasing Options for under £400 a month, enabling you to drive one of the best small SUVs on the market today.

The T-Drive guarantees a comfortable ride that is both quiet and non-intrusive, even when powering down the motorway. Looking under the bonnet you’ll find a 0.999 litre, three-cylinder petrol engine working in tandem with a 6-speed manual transmission gearbox that can get you up to speeds of 120mph.

With five doors and five seats there is plenty of space on offer, with a standard storage space of 385 litres, which can expand into as much as 455 litres depending on the configuration. Equipment that comes as standard with the T-Cross includes adaptive cruise control, heated door windows and a cutting-edge Beats audio system.

You also get a good selection of safety features with the eCall emergency system, blind spot detection, roadside assistance and a crash preventative protection installed. When it comes to extra options, there is a great range of different paints and trims to choose from, allowing you to put together your perfect car for the next few years.
