Best used cars for learner drivers

Costs for new drivers are spiralling, so read our top 10 list of the best used cars for learners that are less than £10,000 and have group three insurance or lower...

Hyundai i10 1.0 S 5dr

7. Hyundai i10

Like many of the other cars on this list, the Hyundai i10 is a cinch to drive, but it also has slim window pillars at the front for excellent forward visibility and plenty of rear leg room for taller passengers. Its 1.0-litre engine may not be a powerhouse, but economy is decent at 60.1mpg and it sits down in insurance group two. 

We found: 2019 Hyundai i10 1.0 S, 3500 miles, £7790

Seat Mii front

The first of a set of triplet city cars on our list is the Seat Mii, but that doesn’t make it the worst choice by a long shot. No, if you want something sportier, it’s the one to go for - particularly in FR Line guise, because then it gets some snazzy 16in alloy wheels, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, front foglights and sports suspension. Just because it looks sporty, doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot to run it, since insurance is only group two and it sips fuel at a rate of 64.2mpg.

We found: 2018 Seat Mii 1.0 FR Line 5dr, 3401 miles, £7995

Skoda Citigo

The Skoda Citigo is just as practical as its Seat and Volkswagen siblings, but the package as a whole is a touch more restrained and sensible. You can get a more economical Greentech version for better fuel economy (68.9mpg) and still enjoy the same low insurance group of two.

We found: 2019 Skoda Citigo 1.0 Greentech SE 5dr, 3801 miles, £7500
