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...
3. Volkswagen Polo
The Polo offers good interior quality, great infotainment and a comfortable ride. Only the higher than average price slightly lets it down, but if you value a premium badge then it's a great choice.
2. Seat Ibiza
The latest Ibiza is one of the best small cars around, with a strong range of petrol engines and plenty of space. It also works out cheaper per month than the Volkswagen Polo or Ford Fiesta if you buy on finance, and insurance costs should be low.
1. Kia Picanto
