There’s the two best selling superminis in the form of the Ford Fiesta and the Vauxhall Corsa as well as three of the most popular hatchbacks ever; the Volkswagen Golf, Vauxhall Astra and the class-leading Ford Focus.#1 – Ford Fiesta

1.25-litre Edge 3 doorFord Fiesta on Business Contract Hire (BCH) for £148 per month over 38 months.As its position in this latest deals signifies, the Ford Fiesta is the UK’s bestselling car in 2010 (it also held the title in 2009).The latest generation of Fiesta benefits from 30 years of experience in the UK market place and as such features more technology and multimedia than ever before.It also boasts the maximum 5-star rating from Euro NCAP.It’s a time limited offer and based on the popularity of the Fiesta, it probably won’t be around for too long.#2 – Vauxhall Astra

1.4-litre i 16V Sri 3 doorVauxhall Astra on BCH for £159 per month over 38 months.The Vauxhall Astra has done the unthinkable and usurped the Ford Focus at Askaprice and the latest generation can take the claim for that.The newest Astra has the same design language as the popular Insignia and boasts a much more refined look than its more muscular-looking forebear.It also features a more economic line of engines than any previous Astra making it as cheap to run as it is to own with this deal.#3 – Vauxhall Corsa

1.2-litre i 16V [85] SXi 3 doorVauxhall Corsa on BCH for £123 per month over 50 months.The Vauxhall Corsa is the second most popular supermini ever and it can feel hard done by in the sense that it is up against the Fiesta – one of the most successful models ever.In 2007 it scooped the What Car? Car of the year award as a testament to its quality and reliability.As with the Astra, the Corsa boasts an increasingly frugal line of engines and an almost endless array of specification and trim levels.The latest model is sleeker and less ‘bubbly’ than its predecessor and overall better looking than previous generations.#4 – Ford Focus

1.6-litre TDCi Style [DPF] 5 doorFord Focus on BCH for £189 per month over 53 months.As mentioned earlier, the Ford Focus has been a class leader in the hatchback segment for a number of years and it retains that title this year despite falling behind the Astra in terms of enquiries at Askaprice.com.The Focus is one of the most common sights on UK roads and that is emblematic of the quality of the car. It is cheap to run, cheap to own, built to a high quality and good looking- the whole package essentially.It also undercuts many of its rivals like the Vauxhall Astra and the Volkswagen Golf in terms of value for money.#5 – Volkswagen Golf

1.6-litre TDi 105 BlueMotion SE [Start Stop] 3 doorVolkswagen Golf on BCH for £184 per month over 25 months.Despite being the last car in this latest deals list, it is probably the best deal.That’s because this Golf is equipped with VW’s fabled BlueMotion technology that takes nothing away from the performance of the sporty hatchback but does offer massively reduced CO2 emissions of just 107g/km.This translates into a powerful hatchback that won’t break the bank in terms of running costs whilst it remains as one of the most desirable entrants in the hatchback segment.The Golf mates style, performance and economy like no other hatchback on the market and this deal makes it available for less than £200 per month.
