The Audi A1

The cheeky and nippy little Audi A1 has been a big hit with UK drivers ever since it was first launched. As the cheapest, smallest and most city-friendly entry into the Audi range, the A1 represents the first and exciting step for many onto the Audi ladder.

It looks fast and premium with its modern Audi styling and aggressive LED front lights, and comes with a huge range of petrol and diesel engine choices for those that are looking for excitement through economy, or excitement through speed.

Inside it's the usual treat of high-quality materials, fit and finish, and every Audi offers the piece of mind of the very latest in safety technology and features. Of course, there will be the very latest in driver aids and comfort too, from one of the best-selling automotive manufacturers in the world.

The Honda CRZ
The Honda CRZ is something a little different with its space age looks and petrol / electric hybrid system. It's also got one of the coolest-looking dashboards and interiors of any car in its price range.
From the outside we see spaceship-like styling with LED lights and a coupe-like hatchback rear, while inside there are more LEDs than a Christmas tree and cool little light-up graphics that tell you if you are driving with economy or not.

At the front of the CRZ is a small petrol engine and at the rear is an electric motor and battery pack. These two power sources combine to offer impressive fuel economy and a low CO2 output. Why not check out some contract hire offers for the jazzy CRZ?

The Jaguar F-Type
The new Jaguar F-Type is the latest coupe from Jaguar and was inspired by the wonderful E-Type model from the 60s; one of the most beautiful cars ever made. The F-Type is far more modern of course, but there are styling cues aplenty from the old E-Type in the new car's design.

Under the wide and long hood is the latest in Jaguar petrol engines, with either a V6 or a V8 taking care of the fast-business. The V8 car is the quickest of them all of course, but the V6 is no slouch either.

The Skoda Octavia
The Skoda Octavia has just been comprehensively redesigned for 2013 onwards and the new car not only looks great, it's extremely frugal and exciting to drive too.

The Octavia has long been recognised as a great value car for both business users and families alike, and with its new design it gets even better. The interior is huge and very well put together and the engines feature the very latest in fast or frugal technology.

Couple with all of this the useful option to specify the Octavia as a simply huge estate and you have all the makings of a great business car for the working week, and a large, economical and versatile family car for the weekends away. This is why the Skoda Octavia sells so well.
