What are the most customisable cars you can get with a novated lease?

When you make the decision to get behind the wheel of a new car, novated leasing in Australia is a fantastic option. Not only will you have the ability to save money on the repayments, but you can also lease more cars for the whole family and save even more!

Some car enthusiasts want the most unique vehicles available, however. That’s absolutely still possible with a novated lease. In fact, if you decide to customise at the time of purchase from the manufacturer, you can save money on those modifications as well. If you do it after the initial purchase, you’ll just have to pay for the changes yourself. Either way, the three cars below are some of the most customisable on the market:

1) Jeep Wrangler

One of the most iconic off-road vehicles ever produced, the Jeep Wrangler also comes with a global community of people who love modifications. Although many of these are aftermarket and will have to be installed at your own expense, they’re still incredibly cool and can help to create your unique SUV to fit your lifestyle.

Try rugged rock sliders, metal bars to protect your tail and headlights, a hefty bull bar with some serious lights installed and even a winch. You’ll look the part, and turn heads everywhere you go.

At base, the stock Wrangler has a lot to offer. You’ll get the creature comforts inside while keeping up with the competition in the performance arena, so whatever modifications you do make will be purely to the exterior. If you’re really serious about heading into the wilderness in this vehicle, a snorkel would show that you mean business.

2) Subaru WRX STI

The most performance-based option on this list, the Subaru WRX STI is iconic for a number of reasons, least of all being Colin McRae’s car of choice in the late 90s and early 2000s. From the factory, you can choose to have a huge amount of options added to the engine bay, including a lightweight oil cap, competition timing belt and oil filter and even a high pressure radiator cap.

If you prefer to feel the road moving underneath you even more than a standard manual transmission (well, even more than an STI gearbox allows), then the inclusion of a short throw shifter into your build will help to achieve this. You’ll also feel like a true race driver, which you should, because you’re essentially driving a comfortable race car.

You can change a few of the exterior features as well, including the body kit around the car, the paint (to the classic royal blue with gold wheels) and exhaust surrounds.

3) Land Rover Defender

The Land Rover Defender is a car that will soon become a thing of the past coming out of showrooms brand new. They’ve planned to stop making them, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that it’s a seriously cool car to customise.

Much like the Jeep Wrangler, this is one heck of an off-roader, and that’s great news for people who love adventuring. It’s also incredibly hardy, and so when you throw it around the bush, it’ll only respond positively. With that in mind, thinking about putting an ARB bullbar with a stack of lights, a massive snorkel and mud flaps on every wheel will give you the appearance of a safari car even when you’re just potting around town.

Because it’s a Land Rover, the interior will be right up to scratch, but you could always throw in a heavy sound system and make those long journeys into the deep desert of Australia more enjoyable.

These are brilliant cars, and customising them can make them even more unique. Get into one today with a novated lease from Alliance Leasing and start your journey toward a one-of-a-kind vehicle.
