Kia Picanto 1.0 1
Price £6635
Target Price £6336

The Picanto is the cheapest new car we'd advise buying. It isn't a stunner, nor is it very big, but it has a seven-year warranty.


Fiat Panda 1.1 Active Eco, '09/09
Price £5750

Cheap as chips to run and decent to drive. A used car will limit the amount of depreciation, and this Panda has two years of warranty left.


Volkswagen Golf 1.6 FSI SE 5dr, '04/04
Price £6000

The Golf Mk V is similar in size to John's Focus, but is better built and should hang onto its value well. It also scores five stars for safety.
