The 5 Best Cars For New Drivers

It is a great time for new drivers to invest in their first car with vehicle manufacturers making more competitively priced automobiles than ever. Whereas it was once a question of what car a new young driver could possibly purchase, it is now more a question of which to choose from. Here are five ideas for those who have just passed their test and are itching to hit the road.


5. MINI Hatchback

The MINI Hatchback is the classic choice for young drivers hitting the road for the first time. The iconic design and bright colours makes it both cool to look at and incredibly good fun to drive. However, there is one or two big problems with the MINI hatchback that keep it low on our list. If you are offering your mates a lift, the legroom is unsurprisingly tight. Meanwhile, the £13-15,000 price tag may put it out of the range for most new drivers unless they looked into car financing from the likes of Pay As You Go Car Finance.


4. Hyundai i10

The Hyundai i10 is a choice that no first time driver would regret. It is a favourite among newly qualified road users because it not only provides a comfortable drive with great handling, but does so at a delightfully low buying cost of between £8000 and £11,000. It does not have the most beautiful design — it is fairly bland compared to other vehicles on offer — but it functions like a dream.


3. Ford Fiesta Hatchback

Stylish, reliable and boasting a reasonable price tag somewhere in the region of £9-12,000, the Ford Fiesta hatchback is a great choice for drivers new to the road. It is also one of the safest cars you can purchase having received a full five-star rating from the European New Car Assessment Programme.


2. Skoda Citigo

The Skoda Citigo is the manufacturer’s attempt at making a small city car to rival the Volkswagen, SEAT and Hyundai. When the company announced its low price of between £8,000 and £11,000 many people thought it would be a cheap alternative to its rival automobiles. However, the Skoda Citigo is actually just as good – if not better – than its competition. It is economical, stable, safe and practical.


1. Kia Picanto

The Kia Picanto is not just an excellent car for new drivers; it is an excellent car for any driver. It is a sleek, modern vehicle with some of the latest technology installed such as MP3 connectivity. The automobile is also spacious and beautifully designed so that drivers are provided plenty of comfort. The Picanto comes with a seven year warranty too and guarantees low carbon emissions.
