If you’re looking to buy your first car, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the massive choice available. However, did you know some cars are much better for new drivers than others? The car you choose will have a major impact on both your driving experience and your budget. So, to help you make the best decision, here you’ll discover some of the most commonly available and best cars for first time drivers.

Ford Fiesta

The Ford Fiesta (above) has been a favourite amongst first time drivers for years now. It frequently tops the list of most popular used cars and it’s not difficult to see why.

The Fiesta comes with an outstanding range of safety tech and some features parents will especially find reassuring. The My Key is a great example. Parents can use the key to restrict driving speeds as well as audio volume. This helps to minimise distractions and ensure their chances of getting caught speeding are greatly reduced. It’s also fuel efficient and comes at a low, affordable cost.

Audi A3

Now, you might not have expected an Audi to have reached the top of the list, but the A3 is surprisingly affordable. This compact car has a stylish and comfortable interior, it is surprisingly spacious and it comes with great safety ratings.

Most surprisingly, it’s fuel efficient and it comes with reasonably affordable insurance premiums. So, if you’re looking for a more luxurious first car, the Audi A3 is definitely a good contender.

Seat Ibiza

The Seat Ibiza is sold exclusively as a five-door model and it’s a sporty yet safe and reliable first car. It comes with some impressive safety features such as pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control and auto braking.

Ibiza owners also love the way this sporty car drives. If you’re looking for something you can have fun with, but which offers impeccable safety, this is definitely a car to consider. If you opt for the 1.0-litre engine, you’ll also benefit from great fuel efficiency, which means it’s going to be affordable to run and insure.

The above are three of the best cars for first time drivers. When searching for your ideal model, you need to take into account the size of the engine, how safe the car is and how reliable it’s considered to be. Online reviews can be great for determining which car is right for you.
