Kia Picanto 1.0 1
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
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
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.
