Best first cars for new drivers 2018
The best first cars combine safety and style with affordability – both in terms of price and running costs. Here are our recommendations...
The latest Corsa offers low running costs, an efficient 1.0-litre petrol engine and a spacious interior with plenty of equipment - in essence, the full package which first-time buyers will be looking for. It's pleasant to live with and there's a version to suit everyone.
Low running costs and excellent build quality make the Polo a first car favourite. The engine and specification require careful consideration, though, if you're to avoid slipping up.
