What Motability cars can I get with nil deposit?

You can get cars of all different shapes and sizes on the Motability Scheme, and many of them - even well kitted out ones - are available with nil advance payment (sometimes called nil or no deposit).

With popular car manufacturers such as CitroënFordHyundai, KiaPeugeot and Vauxhall, all signed up to offer cars through Motability, there's plenty to choose from.

Here are some of the very best cars you can get through Motability with nil advance payment.

Citroën C3

Citroen C3

If there's something Citroën are great at, it's producing funky looking cars that are also famous for their comfort. This makes the C3 a great choice, especially with no deposit.

The 1.2-litre PureTech C-Series is available with a £0 advance payment on Motability, which is a cracking little spec, as it features LED headlights, 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control and tinted rear windows.

You of course get the funky Citroën styling as standard, with the quirky Airbump® protection which help the car look more unique, along with protecting the side of the car from unwanted door dings and such.

Hyundai i20

Hyundai i20

Like the Corsa we've already mentioned, the Hyundai i20 is a high-quality, comfortable, more traditional supermini with practicality levels that belie its compact dimensions.

It's only traditional in terms of its shape, the styling is ultra-modern and it's got all the latest technology as well. SE Connect models come as standard with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, rear parking sensors, cruise control and full smartphone integration.

The 1.0-litre turbo petrol is one of the most efficient engines you can get on the Motability Scheme with nil advance payment, and provides plenty of power for both town, country and motorway driving.

Kia Picanto

Kia Picanto

Small cars are seemingly underappreciated, what with the SUV now being the go-to car choice for many. However, although the Kia Picanto is a small car, it does offer Tardis-like space which will have many surprised.

It may only have four seats, but with 5-doors as standard it's a doddle to get in and out of. With a 255-litre boot, it offers plenty of space with the option to fold the seats for a massive 1,000-litre load space - epic for a car of this size.

Cars come well equipped as standard and for the zero initial payment you can even get the 'GT-Line' which has 16-inch alloys along with refined sports bumpers and styling for a much more premium look.

Hyundai Bayon

Hyundai Bayon, Exterior, Front

The Hyundai Bayon has all the hallmarks of a great Motability car: superb practicality, comfortable seating, plenty of interior room and excellent standard specification.

The tremendous practicality is borne out by the fantastic boot space, which is not only larger than traditional family hatchbacks but it's also a good shape. There's an adjustable boot floor too - helpful for fitting in taller items.

Because of its crossover design, the seating position is high up and the light and airy interior has plenty of space for both adults and kids.

Standard specification includes a digital instrument cluster, alloy wheels, touchscreen multimedia, automatic lights and wipers, rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera.

Vauxhall Corsa 

Vauxhall Corsa

The latest generation Vauxhall Corsa has proven to be a huge hit with UK Motability customers, thanks to its increased levels of practicality and comfort over the old version.

It's incredibly well-equipped as standard, with all models coming with a colour touchscreen infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality. Other standard features include alloy wheels, speed sign recognition and lane departure warning.

Offering modern tech, an easy-to-drive nature and sharp style, the Vauxhall Corsa makes a great deal of sense as a Motability car.

Ford Fiesta


Unbelievably, this year the production of the Ford Fiesta will end after a legacy that has lasted since 1976, which was when it first appeared. Over those four decades or so, the Fiesta has made quite a name for itself, with quite a few people having their own story to tell which involves the much-loved Fiesta.

It's certainly a household name when it comes to cars, and many will be sad to see it discontinued after all these years. What better way then to get hold of one while you still can then?

As part of the Motability scheme, the smart and sporty ST-Line version is available. This is ideal if you're after a similar appearance to the all-singing, all-dancing ST hot hatch, but with more wallet friendly running costs.

The ST-Line also boasts 17-inch alloy wheels, LED lights, sportier bodystyling, five doors and the fabulous 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, good for over 50mpg whilst being uncannily nippy and feeling much larger than its 1.0-litre size suggests.
