As we reach the end of 2016, we thought we’d take a look back at the Top 10 vehicles that have been most popular this year at Short Term Leasing.
- VW Golf GTD
By far the most popular of our rentals, the VW Golf GTD is a firm favourite with almost everyone. Combining reasonable running costs as well as good performance the GTD became the hot hatch that everyone wanted to get their hands on. 70% of our customers opt for the DSG Auto model
- BWM X4
When the Coupe met the SUV, the BMW X4 was always going to be vehicle Marmite, but it looks like it was more ‘love’ than ‘hate’ in this car’s case. Although not big on boot space, the X4 is stylish and comfortable.
- BMW X5
This was the first SUV from BMW back in the late 1990’s yet it’s still popular in leasing today. Is it because this X5 delivers both performance and handling along with comfort and style? We think it just might be!
- Volvo XC60
Another SUV high up on the list, the XC60 isn’t just your typical family car, it’s proven cheap to run, practical, stylish and a great all-rounder for the demanding driver.
- VW Golf R
For those that love the Golf GTI but want that extra grunt and performance, the Golf R is the obvious choice. Sleek, stylish, fast and All-Wheel drive, what’s not to love?!
- Mercedes E Class
Almost making the top 5 the classy Mercedes E Class is perfect for those who like a little luxury when they travel. Mercedes are renowned for the innovative technology and a high standard of driving experience and it looks like our customers thought so too making it to number 6 on our Top 10.
- Fiat 500
An acquired taste according to many reports the Fiat 500 offers that perfect solution for ‘around town’ or for the younger driver. This retro inspired car has been popular since launch and quite possibly because they’re so economical to run. The Fiat 500 is also one of the cheapest short term car leases.
- BMW 3 Series
The BMW 3 Series was incredibly popular this year in the beautiful Estoril Blue and the 3 Series ticks all the boxes; comfort, stylish, economical, good performance and great boot space. Not bad for a model that been manufactured since 1975, albeit with a few tweaks!
- Audi A4
Audi made the Top 10, with the highest place being at number 9. The A4 is the typical family car, not really a head turner, but right up there in the sense of practicality and reliability. There’s the choice of the saloon or the estate version, and you’ll find all the ‘Audi’ extras come as standard with the A4.
- Audi TT
Scraping into the Top 10 the Audi TT. This fun, sporty model is perfect for those who want a sleek and stylish exterior and a great drive too. You’re never going to say this car is economical but if the thrill of the drive is what you’re after then you won’t be disappointed with the TT. Both the Diesel and Petrol models were equally popular here at Short Term Leasing.
