A Look at Business Car Leasing

Vehicle leasing is becoming ever more popular, and when it comes to leasing cars for your business, it’s incredibly important for your company that you have a reliable and cost-effective fleet of vehicles.

Business car leasing has many advantages compared to just buying your cars outright. You can have the choice of driving either new or well-maintained cars and pay for them over your chosen period of time. Smaller, regular payments are much easier to handle and have less of an impact on your business’s cash flow.


If you want to pay less for your cars, but still want to drive cars of a higher quality, then business car leasing is a fantastic option for your company. You also don’t have to worry about the cost of depreciation or losing money trying to sell your car in the future. At the end of your lease you can simply upgrade to a better car, and keep up a great image for your company.

So if you’re constantly driving to meetings around the city, or have to take longer journeys regularly for your job, then leasing would be a great choice for you.

At Hippo we have a great deal of experience in finding the car for you, so we’ve reviewed some of the best cars for business leasing.

Hippo Motorgroup

Volkswagen Up!

The Volkswagen is a great option if you’re working to a tight budget. This small, funky car projects a modern vibe, which could be great for your company. It handles very well, and gives an agile and supple ride, handling road imperfections easily. This would be great for nipping round the city for meetings, rather than long-haul motorway journeys.

The interior is stylish, yet simple, with lots of room in the cabin up front. The boot is a very complimentary size, and is one of the biggest in its class.

Overall the Volkswagen is a great contemporary car, with a relatively spacious interior and easy on your budget.

Peugeot 107

This car is another great option if you’re sticking to a strict budget. Much like the Volkswagen Up, the Peugeot is more of a city car, and is less suited to longer trips. Accurate steering and agile handling make the Peugeot a pleasure to drive, especially around towns and winding lanes.

The Peugeot has a charming design with its short sculpted bonnet, and the interior dashboard is clean and simple. However, there isn’t a lot of space in the back of the car, and the boot is relatively small too. Probably not best if you have a lot of equipment to cart around for work.

Overall the car is fun to drive and very cost-effective.

BMW 1 series

If you’re looking for a car that will make your business stand out from the crowd, then this is the lease for you. This is a fantastic business car option if you have a higher budget and want to project a classy and elegant image to your customers. The BMW offers you an impressive ride, with slick handling and a decent grip, performing well at all speeds. There’s a tonne of space in the cabin, especially for passengers. The boot could be a little bigger, but this can be easily remedied by folding down the rear seats for more space.

Overall the BMW is an enjoyable driving experience. With an efficient engine, fantastic interior quality and is surprisingly cheap to run.

Renault Clio

If you still want a high quality car, but don’t have enough in your budget for a BMW, then the Clio is a great choice. This highly stylish car has a smooth engine and handles well through any bends in the road. An impressive business vehicle that would suit being a city car, but is also stable on motorways and can handle longer journeys. The great news for your business, is that the Clio is economically friendly and cheap to run. The interior is wonderfully modern, and there’s plenty of space up front and in the back for passengers. There’s a decent amount of boot space too.

Overall the design is fresh and stylish, with an efficient, fun to drive engine.

Ford Fiesta

The Fiesta is a brilliant choice if you’re looking for a business car that’s not too expensive, but still projects a great image. It’s superb to drive and gives you great value for your money; no wonder this car is so popular. A fun drive, the Fiesta has a confident grip and handles especially well, with minimal roll in the corners. There’s an abundance of support in the driving seat, allowing you to find the best position, perfect for any longer business trips. The Fiesta will sit 4 adults comfortably, with an average-sized boot.

Overall, this popular car is fun to drive and cheap to run.

Leasing your next fleet can be a viable, affordable and effective way to keep your team on the road and supply a range of different vehicles depending on the individual’s needs. If you need a mix of smaller cars, large cars and some prestige lease vehicles then a tailor-made fleet would be ideal for you.
