If you are looking to buy a car for your kid who has just passed their test then you will want to take the time to find the perfect car as their needs will be different to your own. As a first car, it should always be small, safe, reliable and not too powerful. Additionally, it is always helpful if it is affordable to both buy and run too. With this in mind, here are a few of the cheaper cars which are ideal for new drivers.

Citroen C1

The C1 is proving to be popular with young drivers thanks to its cool and unique design, but it is actually a great starter car too. The C1 shares the same mechanical structure as the excellent Peugeot 108 but it is much more affordable to buy, insure and run with the 1.0 litre engine offering impressive returns of 68.9 mpg.

Fiat 500

A fun, characterful and eye-catching city car, the Fiat 500 is very cheap to purchase, insure and run with the 0.9 TwinAir engine capable of returning up to 74.3 mpg with emissions of just 90g/km. The Fiat 500 is also great fun to drive, extremely reliable and safe. This is a great car to look out for in the used car market from a dealership like FOW due to its affordability and reliability.

Skoda Citigo

The Citigo from Skoda ticks all of the boxes that are required from a starter car and it is often seen at the top of best cars for new drivers lists. Some models fall into insurance group one, plus all of the engines are very economical to keep running costs low too. It shares the same underpinnings as the VW Up! And the SEAT Mii but is much more affordable than both and it also has a cool style too.

Hyundai i10

One of the main attractions of this small city car is the fact that it comes with a five-year warranty. Not only this, but the i10 from Hyundai is also one of the few vehicles in its class that comes with 5 doors which makes it highly practical too. Additionally, the i10is cheap to buy, affordable to run and is well-equipped.

These are just a few of the best vehicles for new drivers, all of which are very cheap to buy, run and insure. A first car should always be one which is reliable, safe and small so that the motorist can feel confident behind the wheel whilst also helping to keep costs down and you cannot go wrong with any of the above automobiles when looking to buy for someone who has recently passed their test.
