What Car’s editor Steve Huntingford said: “We are truly in a buyer’s market right now. Even sectors where big discounts are normally harder to come by, like city cars and small SUVs, are now generating great deals.”

Citroen and DS are leading the way with 14% and 13.2% average discounts respectively. The largest saving found was 42.3% off a Seat Toledo 1.6 TDI 115 SE.

Huntingford said: “Current pressures on the car industry, plus a barrage of new products flooding the market, mean that there are some very attractive PCP deals on offer if you know where to look and do your research.”
