Best first cars for new drivers 2019
The best first cars combine safety and style with affordability – both in terms of price and running costs. Here are our recommendations...
9. Skoda Fabia
The Fabia was our 2015 Car of the Year, and it remains one of our favourite small cars. Its blend of competitive pricing, spacious interior and clean, frugal engines means it should be on your list of best new car buys.
8. Ford Fiesta
The UK’s best-selling car is stylish and brilliant to drive, and it's also well equipped. It makes an excellent new or used choice, and the turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol Ecoboost engines are particularly good.
7. Seat Mii
Essentially the same car as the Volkswagen Up, the Mii feels a bit cheaper inside, but undercuts its sister car on price and is just as good to drive. Both three and five-door versions are available.
