What Are The Best Family Cars To Lease?

27 Aug 2021

More and more families are choosing car leasing or Personal Contract Hire (PCH) every year. With the option to drive off in a brand new car for an affordable monthly price, it’s easy to see why.

Many families in today’s busy world don’t have the finances to buy a car outright. But even if you do, car leasing is an excellent option if you simply aren’t interested in owning the car at the end of the finance agreement. Traditionally, leasing a new car is simpler and easier than a Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) and more commonly known, it generally has lower monthly payments. The process is rather simple, you pay an agreed-upon deposit, select your annual mileage and contract length. Once you’ve selected the agreement for you, you then pay a flat monthly fee for the duration of your agreement. When your contract ends, you hand the car back.
It’s not just cheaper monthly payments that draws families towards leasing. Leasing a car often includes many other benefits, including car tax, breakdown cover, car maintenance and tyre repair. So if you’re thinking of heading down the car leasing route, cars2buy are here to help you.
The only downside to leasing your next car is choosing which one is right for you! So, we have made a list of the best family cars to lease.

1) Citroen C3 Aircross

The Citroen C3 Aircross SUV has great appeal for families looking for a stylish and comfortable SUV with mini-MPV levels of interior space. In the SUV you will find plenty of legroom available for parents and even a couple of good-size cup holders for the little one's juice cups. Dotted around the C3 there are cubbies for stashing keys, coins and phones. 
Citroen has made some mild changes to the design of the centre console and other cubbies formed part of the facelift in 2021. The fresh interior now includes a useful lidded storage bin, which can be used by both front and rear passengers.
The small but spacious SUV has a bigger than average boot with a longer and taller load bay, than competitors such as the Seat Arona. The boot is an impressive 410 litres with the rear seats pushed back, and you even have the option to slide them individually to increase this capacity to up to 520 litres. If you fold the seats down completely it will open the boot up to a huge 1,289 litres. The floor is flexible too, allowing you to prioritise either a flat load bay or overall capacity. 
If you’re looking for a family car then the safety features are going to be a key factor in your decision making. The C3 Aircross is built on some of the PSA Group’s oldest and most trusted current components. Much of the Aircross’ engine line-up has already seen service in several other Citroens and Peugeots. 
If you would like to lease the Citroen C3 Aircross then lease deals start at a price of £179.36 per month (plus VAT) with selected dealers. Contact us for more information or find the right deal for you here.

2) Audi A3 Sportback

Many of you may be surprised to see an Audi on this list but the Audi A3 Sportback is a great family car and has a range of great lease deals available. 
If you’re a family that likes to look as good as you feel then the Sportback is the option for you. Not only is it bigger than it looks on the inside, but you'll get high-grade, premium-feeling interiors on every trim level. The modern cabin includes a handy, optional Virtual Cockpit that replaces the old-fashioned speedo and rev-counter dials. The customisable digital screen can show the satellite navigation map, your Spotify playlist or just how fast you’re going.
The Audi A3 is practical and a breeze to drive. Front passengers get plenty of seat adjustment and a good view of the road ahead and behind. With plenty of room for both adults and little ones sat in the rear will also be comfortable with enough head leg room for growing families. 
Boot space on the Sportback is on a par with competitors such as the VW Golf and a Ford Focus. The 380-litre boot is a usefully square shape and has a wide opening making it easy to load large items such as prams, suitcases and boxes. Alongside the great shape, the boot floor can be adjusted and the rear seats can be folded down to boost the boot’s total capacity to 1,220 litres.
The A3 is one of the few cars that both looks good and can survive family life. Performance-wise, you can choose from a range of petrol and diesel engines so your motor can handle your schedule whether you're ferrying the kids to activities or commuting on motorways. 
There is a vast variety of great Audi A3 Sportback leases available on the cars2buy site. Lease prices start at £205.48 per month (plus VAT). Click here to find your deal today. 

3) Dacia Duster

The Dacia Duster is the king of value for money. Families flock towards the Duster for a number of reasons. Not only does the Duster range have enough variants to suit the broad requirements of most families but it has also won “Best for Value” in the family SUV class in a range of awards.
Inside the family SUV, it is roomy and well-laid out. It offers plenty of room for all the family with space to fit three adults on the back seats stress-free. The dashboard and control centre is clearly marked and easy to use and the trims are simple and easy to keep clean. 
What we would really like to focus on is the Dacia Duster's boot space. The SUV’s boot is adequate for nearly all families with 445 litres of space with the rear seats in place. Once you fold the seats down you reach a whopping 1,623 litres. This gives plenty of room to holiday luggage, a fold-up buggy or the spoils of an, especially extensive grocery shop.
If you would like to find the perfect Dacia Duster lease then deals start at a price of £171.52 per month (plus VAT) with selected dealers. Contact us for more information or find the right deal for you here.

Why should I lease my next family car? 

There are a lot of reasons as to why lease deals are growing in popularity, with a large number of motorists simply handing back their cars at the end of the lease and signing for a new one straight away. On top of the freedom to give the car back, car leasing is one of the cheapest ways to drive around in a brand new motor.
