My dad has finally grown tired of his Citroen Xsara Picasso and started talking to me about the idea of leasing a new car; something he’s never done before. He’s not sure yet though, and has very little interest in cars, so pretty much just told me to look into it for him. He mentioned wanting a Mondeo estate, but wants to look into what else is available, which is where I need the help of oppo. I like to think I know a lot about cars, but newer, more ‘pedestrian’ stuff isn’t my forte, so any recommendations are welcome. here are the rough criteria -

  • A car you can get new in the UK
  • A three year lease, with 10,000 miles p/a or more
  • £250 per month or less with a rough £1000 deposit (he said £300 before we looked into it, but realistically, £250 is more likely to happen)
  • 5 usable and comfortable seats

I’m struggling to think of anything else, but bear in mind that this isn’t a person who’s into cars. Thanks in advance for the help. They’ll be something glaringly obvious I’ve missed, so feel free to ask questions if you like
