You’ll probably want something fun, affordable to buy and run, with low insurance groups and good fuel economy. You'll also want something that's easy to drive and manoeuvre, and that comes with a decent amount of safety kit.
If you're looking to tick all those boxes, you’ll most likely be looking at a small car, as they are the most affordable to buy, and usually have small engines, which usually means good fuel economy and lower insurance groupings.
If you’re in the position to be able to buy or finance a new car, these would be a great place to start.
- Volkswagen Up/Skoda Citigo/Seat Mii – the high class one(s)
- Kia Picanto – the fun to drive one
- Dacia Sandero – the bargain one
- Hyundai i10 – the practical one
- Renault Twingo – the ‘make it your own’ one
