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...
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.
6. Volkswagen Up
Our 2020 Used City Car of the Year is a great choice for new drivers, because it's nice to drive, has easy-to-judge dimensions and a peppy engine. All that’s true of its Mii and Citigo siblings, but the Up has a classier interior and holds its value better, so it’ll be worth more than the others when you’re done with it. Its official economy figure is one of the best around, at 64.2mpg, while group two insurance of the Take Up model will keep a smile on your face.
5. Seat Mii
If you want something sporty, the Seat Mii is 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 smart, 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.
