If you are looking to purchase your very first car then this is a hugely exciting time, but it is important that you find the right car for your needs and there are a handful which are particularly well-suited to new drivers which will help you to get used to being be-hind the wheel, be more affordable to insure and have lower costs.

Skoda Citigo

The Skoda Citigo receives raves reviews from industry experts and it is certainly an excellent first car because it is highly affordable but ticks all the boxes that you would want. It is small, practical and safe but also has an attractive style and is fun to drive. It is cheap to buy, run and insure so it is a vehicle which any new motorist should seriously consider.

Vauxhall Corsa

The Corsa from Vauxhall is an iconic vehicle and has been a UK favourite for many years. The Corsa has low costs which will appeal to new motorists but it is also a car with a flashy style, plenty of interior space for a small car and lots more spec than other rivals in its class. As such a popular car, it is easy to find for low prices in the used car market but be sure to arrange an extended warranty from a specialist like ALA.

Volkswagen Polo

The VW Polo is another UK favourite and one of the most common cars on the road. This is a car that appeals to new and young drivers, professionals, families and just about every group because it is such a good allrounder. There may be more affordable options available (although you could find a good deal in the used car market) but the Polo is a brilliantly designed car which offers an excellent performance along with a comfortable and spacious interior.

Hyundai i10

Despite being a small city car (and highly affordable), the i10 has a smart, modern and comfortable interior along with poised handling so it is perfect for new drivers looking to build confidence. It is also a fuel efficient car and affordable to run which will help to keep your costs down.

Any motorist looking to purchase their first car cannot go wrong with any of these models. It is essential that you find the right first car so that you can develop your confidence and get off to a smooth start and these vehicles will enable you to do this and tick all the boxes.
