The best cars for £90 per month

  • You CAN get behind the wheel of a new car for as little as £90 per month
  • Prices can vary depending on how much cash you have for a deposit
  • Better value PCP deals from £100 per month

We'll be frank. £90 per month might buy you a pretty good TV and internet package, but it's not going to get you access to a slew of new cars.

There are more choices at £100 per month, and many, many more choices (including leasing deals) at £150 per month.

Nevertheless, if you really really want a brand new car for £90 per month, you do have options. Technically, you could probably get any car you wanted for this much money assuming you had a large enough deposit. For a city car, typically you'll need around £3,500 - £5,000.

If you can stretch to more money per month, or don't fancy stumping up such a hefty deposit, you can get even even better deals for not much more money.

Best new cars for £90 a month 2021

PCP: Mitsubishi Mirage

Best new car for £90 a month for: reliability

2021 Mitsubishi Mirage

Not the best supermini around. But cheap finance and a five-year warranty makes the Mirage a canny buy if you don't drive a lot and just want something to get around in.

The 1.2-litre petrol engine is capable of more than 50mpg. Insurance is cheap too.

Your £90 per month can squeeze you into different trim levels and an automatic gearbox, but we recommend going with the most basic Verve spec model.**
