10 Best Commuter Cars To Lease In 2019
What makes a great commuter car?
A good commute car is something, that has great fuel consumption, can medium to long range distances but is still great fun to drive and will ensure you're just as comfortable at the end of your journey as you were at the start.
10 Volkswagon Polo
Our 2019 Small Car of the Year is an excellent choice for budget buyers who spend a lot of time behind the wheel. The Polo has strong competition from the Seat Ibiza and the Skoda Fabia, both also built by the VW Group and near identical under the skin. However, the Volkswagen is more refined and comfortable, has a good level of standard equipment and the 1.0-litre TSI 95 SE is ideal for those who need a petrol car.
9 Mazda CX5
You won’t be disappointed if you have to clock up some serious commuting miles in the Mazda CX-5, as the interior is one of its strongest suits. It’s extremely well laid out, very smart and there’s plenty of room for front and rear-seat passengers. Either the 2.0-litre petrol or the 2.2-litre diesel engine is a good option depending on your weekly mileage, while equipment such as adaptive cruise control, blindspot monitoring and lane-keeping assistance make it extra safe on the motorway.
8 Mercedes A-Class
It’s often said that big, luxury cars are best for serious journeys because their elegant interiors make the miles go quicker. The Mercedes A-Class offers that in a much more compact package; its cabin is incredibly good looking and more along the lines of what you’d find in an executive car. There’s no shortage of standard equipment and the A180 diesel and A200 petrol models are good all-rounders, but the A250 AMG Line is terrific fun if you can stretch to it.
