By Autograph Contracts - 2015-09-15

For those on the lookout for their next vehicle, leasing presents a superb opportunity. Rather than spending a small fortune and losing out on depreciation value, motorists are instead turning to the prospect of leasing. Drivers with a vehicle lease in mind will have loads of great options to consider. There are also two types of leasing; business and personal. Therefore, as you would expect, people are searching for different vehicles dependent on the contract they're seeking.

What business lease cars are people searching for?

The epitome of a business car is professionalism and sophistication, so as you would probably expect, the majority of searches are for some of the market's most prestigious brands. Number one and two on the list immediately reiterate this; with the Mercedes C Saloon and E Class Saloon first and second respectively for business leasing.

The Mercedes Benz C Class provides an upmarket solution that's both comfortable and economical. This high performing car is perfect for businesses and instantly elevates your status.

BMW take three of the next five positions as another luxury brand, whilst token models from Audi and Volkswagen ensure eight of the top 10 models are German.
