Best First Cars for New Drivers

These are the cars we recommend if you're a first-time driver

Choosing the right first car for you

Searching for your first car is an exciting time, which is why we want to ensure you're choosing the right one for you.

We've highlighted our top recommendations for a first car below, and we've divided them into three categories to make life easier:

  • City cars
  • Superminis
  • Crossovers

The cars we've recommended are slightly different in size, with city cars being the smallest and crossovers being the largest. They all have low running costs though, meaning you can choose the best car to suit your needs.
