Best Starter Cars for New Drivers



Hey guys, so a question we are always asked is what’s the best car for a new driver, the ideal started car? It’s an important question and while many young lads dream of a car with V8 engine, budget and insurance often put an end to that pipe dream. Our team have compiled a list of the best starter cars for new drivers, we hope you find it helpful:


Skoda Fabia


The third-generation Fabia was released in 2014 and updated in 2018 and has proved to be stiff competition for Ford and SEAT. The Fabia has plenty of useful features such as a bike carrier, variable boot floor and holsters for media devices. The interior has an impressive level of tech including a 6.5 -inch touchscreen. The drive is smooth and engaging, the 1 litre engine carries plenty of power and offers amazing fuel efficiency.


Kia Pecanta


The Pecanta is a reliable and practical car with a vibrant, youthful look. It’s a reliable city car with the choice of a 1 litre three cylinder or 1.2 litre four-cylinder engine.  We recommend the 1 litre engine as it’s more fuel efficient and the larger engine doesn’t offer many benefits.


SEAT Ibiza


The SEAT Ibiza tops many polls as the most popular starter car and it’s easy to see why. It’s spacious and has a sporty exterior. Its driving experience matches the sporty exterior with a 1 litre three-cylinder engine that is surprisingly powerful while offering fuel efficiency.


Dacia Sandera


Last year Dacia shocked the UK car market last year with its price tag being the cheapest car on sale. If that wasn’t great enough you get a lot of interior space for that price tag. It’s a value for money few makes of cars can match.


Vauxhall Corsa


The Vauxhall Corsa is another popular starter car that graces the top of most polls.  It offers incredible refinement, technology, interior space and value for money. We’d like to highlight the 1.4 litre petrol engine model few other starter cars offer such a driving experience and performance. This car has earned its reputation.




Whichever car you choose as your first we hope you enjoy it and drive safe. Don’t forget to visit your local garage!!!
