The Best Car Models For A First Time Driver

If you’ve recently passed your driving test, or only just getting around to purchasing your first car, then you need to make sure you purchase a car that’s right for you. You don’t want something too powerful while you’re getting used to driving alone, but you definitely don’t want something that’s going to hold you back. Something that looks great is always a bonus too! Here are a few ideas for some of the best car models for a first time driver:

Peugeot 208 Hatchback

This car is stylish and small. It’s easy to own with the ‘just add fuel’ options, is comfortable, and comes with all of the standard equipment you need in a first car. A very cost effective way to get on the road.

Ford Fiesta Hatchback

The Ford Fiesta has been on top of the bestseller list for a while. The great thing about new models is the behaviour related settings you can put in place, like max speed, seatbelt reminders, and max volume for the stereo. This means anybody using the car will do so sensibly. The car is spacious and practical, as well as pretty cheap to run.

Mini Hatchback

A Mini is a desirable and upmarket choice. A great choice if you can afford it! It handles very well and is perfect for the fashion conscious. It’s not particularly spacious, but the entry level Mini One is pretty affordable to run.

Now you have an idea of just a few of the best car models for a first time driver, will you lease or buy the car outright? Both options have pros and cons that you can explore in the infographic below.
