Our top 10 most requested cars
If you’ve been keeping an eye on car reviews, you’ve probably noticed the same handful of vehicles keep coming up tops for value, reliability and safety. In fact, even if you pay no attention to car reviews, you’ve probably noticed more than a few Mazda CX-5s parked in your street. With current trends steering drivers towards hatchbacks and SUVs, Smartleasing has seen the same cars populating our bestseller lists. Here are the top 10 cars sought by Smartleasers – and why.
Note, prices quoted include the average discount on new vehicles Smartleasing secures from our huge dealer network, along with running costs like fuel, insurance, servicing and registration*.
This Mazda is Australia’s top-selling SUV and its combination of style, quality, safety, driving nous and value is also striking a chord with Smartleasing customers. Like all Mazdas, it’s now covered by a five-year warranty. From $380.31 per fortnight*
Another Mazda, and a popular choice for much the same reasons as the CX-5, offering a whole lot of style, safety, driving flair and made-in-Japan quality for a very reasonable ask. From $304.89 per fortnight*
This Subaru’s space, safety, quality and off-road dexterity – the latter a unique asset in its class – make it the small SUV of choice for Smartleasing customers, even if it’s not the cheapest they could buy. From $380.12 per fortnight*
This Mazda’s mix of style, quality, safety, driving fun and value closely mirrors that of its siblings, so no surprise it’s also one of the most popular choices for those in the market for an urban SUV. From $314.32 per fortnight*
This VW’s big-dollar cabin ambience, ultra-refined driving qualities and unrivalled technology are winning over buyers who want a high-quality small car, and are happy to fork out a little extra to get it. From $342.03 per fortnight*
The 2017 Drive Car of the Year can’t quite match the style of a Mazda3 or the sophistication of a VW Golf but its stellar combination of value, practicality, driving flair, a five-year warranty and recently beefed-up safety is ticking all the boxes for more budget-conscious buyers. From $326.98 per fortnight*
This Honda’s sprawling, versatile and family-friendly cabin is just what a whole lot of midsize-SUV buyers are asking for, though they do need to spend up to the range-topping VTi-LX if they want to-the-minute safety technology such as auto emergency braking. From $384.07 per fortnight*
This Hyundai’s even-handed mix of value, practicality, long warranty, solid driving and recently enhanced safety is making it one of the top choices for Smartleasers in the market for a medium-sized SUV. From $387.05 per fortnight*
This Subaru’s car-like driving qualities, comprehensive safety and generous space are making it the large SUV of choice for Smartleasing customers, despite not having the seven-seat capability of some alternatives. From $447.06 per fortnight*
This VW isn’t for the budget crowd, especially now the entry-level 110TSI model is temporarily off the Australian menu owing to Euro production constraints, but plenty of midsize-SUV buyers are falling for its upmarket flair, solid practicality and rival-beating technology. From $418,25 per fortnight*
