Land Rover has big plans to go electric, with the company showing off a new Range Rover hybrid at the Silk Trail 2013 expedition.

What Are the Top 3 Super Mini’s to Lease?

Seat Ibiza

1. Seat Ibiza

The Seat Ibiza is a great super mini that’s well-equipped, sporty to drive and reliable with a good range of economical engines. Although it’s practically the same car as the premium Volkswagen Polo, we recommend the Seat over VW’s offering because it’s cheaper and arguably better styled. The engine range includes a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder which we say avoid due to being underpowered, the 1.2 TDI, 1.6 TDI, 2.0 TDI, 1.2 TSI and 1.4 TSI. For those leasing a car that will be used on the motorways, we recommend the Seat Ibiza in FR trim coupled with a 1.6 TDI or 2.0 TDI engine. Both offer good performance and economy, at 65.7 mpg and 47.1 mpg respectively. read more »
